Re: sims 3 does not start on mac



What Mac 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 running any antivirus?

- Are you patched up to date? You should be on patch level 1.67
- What Expansion and Stuff Packs do you have installed?

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