hi, so i've tried so many things and NOTHING has worked. The launcher was unable to open before so I took a suggestion to bypass the launcher and now this comes up! 

 

I did have cc but i took it all out, i deleted all caches, all files in thumbnail folder. I am on a Macbook Pro. Please help me! Frown

 

Details:

OS X Version 10.8.4

Processor: 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7

Memory: 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

Here's a few trouble shooting steps: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/Links-to-Mac-help-threads-and-guides/m-p/749664#U749664

If those don't help, I would suggest posting in the mac forum at thesims3.com (make sure your language is set to US): http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/forums/show/205.page since macs are not well covered on the AnswerHQ.

Good Luck and Happy Simmin
