Re: SIMCITY will not start

★★★ Newbie

I disabled origin in game and restarted origin. Simcity still does not work. It still says my computer is not compatible with 32Bit game. I don't have a button to start the game anymore. I click on the game photo but nothing happens. I hope you solve this problem soon. It is a shame that I can not play this game anymore.

Re: SIMCITY will not start

Hi @fburcin -  I moved your post to the master thread on this topic. Apple dropped support for 32-bit games like SimCity, beginning with MacOS Catalina 10.15. There is more information in the First Post of this thread, including some options for running 32-bit games after upgrading to Catalina.

I am using a new MacBook Pro with Big Sur and the new M1 chip. I cannot get this game to work and I really want it to. Anyone have any solutions on how to get this to work?

Hi @Lethaldose007 - I moved your post to the master thread on this issue.

 

Apple dropped support for 32-bit games like SimCity, beginning with MacOS Catalina 10.15, so it will not work on Big Sur either. Check the first post in this thread for some ideas on running 32-bit programs with an upgraded MacOS. Unfortunately, there have been issues reported with Aspyr's app store version on Big Sur as well. If you bought SimCity from the App store, you'll need to contact Aspyr for support.

Hi @viccan - The 64-bit version from Aspyr works when running Catalina. Unfortunately, there have been issues reported with Aspyr's app store version on Big Sur. If you bought SimCity from the App store, you'll need to contact Aspyr for support and file a ticket there.

I'm running Big Sur on both my iMac (2017 model) and a MacBook Air with the new M1 chip as well and it's unfortunate I can't play this game, and haven't been able to for awhile. I know many people had issues with the game, but I still enjoyed it. I do have a W10 gaming computer but it's never used and would rather be able to use it on my primary computer(s).

@BlackjackWidow I would just like to report to you that Aspyr released an update on July 26th that addressed the compatibility issues with the latest MacOSes, and now I can run SimCity perfectly on my MacBook Pro 15" 2017 model running 12.0 Monterey Large smile

@jbd00 - That is fantastic news, thanks so much for the update. Your city looks great too. Thumbs up

 

It's been such a roller coaster ride for Mac users over the past few years.
