hi, so i'm on a macbook air and i have downloaded the sims 3 on origin and when i click play the game launcher comes up fine, so when i click play the sims 3 logo thing just comes up on a blue background but nothing else happens, its been like 2 hours. I have tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it but still the same problem and the only way i can close it is but force quitting it. please help, thanks Standard smile
