I have a late 2015 iMac running El Capitan and have never had any problems with the game. This year I suddenly started experiencing crazy graphics issues which make the game unplayable. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times, tried the game in both windowed and full screen mode, tried changing the graphics settings. I believe it started happening around the legacy split-off update but to my knowledge my machine isn't required to change to the legacy edition. Performance is otherwise laggy but functional, seems to only/mostly be a graphics thing. I have no cc or mods installed.
I've recently got a second hand mac, and I was really excited to download the sims again. BUUUUTTT every time I try and play, within a couple minutes of gameplay, that multicolour spin wheel appears and the game freezers... and then i have to shut down my mac. Please help me....
Please can you provide more information about your Mac. Instructions on how to do so and what to provide here - http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-Mac/READ-FIRST-Sims-4-Mac-Help-Guides-and-Troubleshooting/m-p/4612...
