    Have you downloaded the patch? If not, you can get it here.

    I had some similar problems running the software but the patch sorted them out – hopefully it will do the same for your iBook!

    Is anything else going wrong on the computer, or is it just that game? Does the game work on other compatible machines? Have you checked any settings that could be stopping the program from running? Just some things to consider.

    Calm down. Download the update, then tell us what happens, if it is just that program, then you coo', if it is more than just that program, repair permissions. I think it is the game though.

    Indeed it is – article 1173 on the Support page (Patch: SimCity 4 version 1.0.2).

    Give it a whirl and let us know if it works! :)
