Help with sims 3, and origin game launching please![Mac]

[ Edited ]
★★★ Newbie

So, I have a Macbook Air, and I just bought/downloaded/installed The Sims 3, and 6 expansion packs for it as well. Now, when i go to play the game the usual blue sims 3 launcher pops up, and the game symbol pops up on my dashboard but doesn't do much more. when i click play on the blue launcher it tells me game is already running, so i click on the game but it doesn't lauch and both the launcher and game just quit on me, or freeze. a few times a small box with the sim's diamond symbol popped up, looking like the game was trying to launch but it never did. I have also bought the sims 4 before this on origin and a few expansion packs, and that works as great as ever. However I like the sims 3 more and wish to play it especially since I bought all the expansion packs and what not. Anyone know what to do?

 

@Bluebellflora  please and thank you in advance
