Checking for Updates Issue

[ Edited ]

Hi Mayors --If you get stuck on "CHECKING FOR UPDATES" you should delete all files in your User Data.

 

If you have a desktop shortcut you can right click the icon and select PROPERTIES then delete all files in the User Data folder.

If you launch through Origin go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\SimCity\SimCityUserData and delete all files in the User Data folder.

 

Then run the game again and you should get past that screen.

 

Note: The recovery tool will not resolve this issue, so please use the directions above.
