I bought sims 3 and a few expansion packs through eBay (they was compatible for mac and windows) they worked on my windows laptop but I've just tried to download them on my macbook air and it won't play just keeps asking for me to debug something but then it crashes 


@Bluebellflora  please and thank you in advance

Re: SIMS 3[Mac]



What MacBook Air do you have? Click on the Apple icon in the top left corner of your desktop and select About This Mac. Please provide the following information (you may need to click on More Info depending on what operating system you're running:

- Operating System (Version)
- Mac model
- Processor
- Memory (RAM)
- Graphics

- Are you patched up to date? You should be on patch level 1.67
- Do you use CC/Mods? If so, have you tried removing them and seeing if that fixes your problem?
- What Expansion and Stuff Packs do you have installed?


Does your game actually load then crash? Have you been purging RAM before and during gameplay?

Using CC/Mods is at your own risk, EA are not responsible for making the game compatible with 3rd party content, the creator is.
