After installing Sim City 4 I attempted to play it with the default settings. During the first install, I attempted to locate it in the applications folder where I installed it--to no avail. Odd I thought, but chalked it up to a finder oddity. So did a search for it, located it IN the applications folder, and opened it up. I was shown a black screen, then what appeared to be a chain displayed in the middle. It looked as if 1 window instance was tiny and distorted and multiplied over the length of the screen. I say this ecause I have very good vision and I saw in all instances of the screen what could pass as a green loading bar. Then the maxis window appeared as well as the sim city 4 window and then the map. I do the norm, pick a region and start my city. Navigation is very VERY slow and delayed, then the screen will start bugging out displaying half of the map where I WAS and half where I WENT. And then it stalls. It hangs as well as the music, and I have to CTRL+apple+restart. I meet the specs needed: 1.07ghz; 512mb DDR; OSX 10.3.5; ATI 32mb VRAM I shut all apps down prior, even placed all setting in this game to minimal including resolution, and it still crashes. Any ideas as to what I can try. I tried re-installing, nothing. I applied the update, nothing. I rebuilt permissions after, nothing.
