    I recently found my old copy of Sim City 3000, but I'm having trouble getting it to run on Classic. The game runs, but every once in a while, the date stops changing. The ticker and animations keep going, but time doesn't pass. Anyone have a suggestion?

    SC3K will not run in Classic, unless you have a high speed system, and a great video card. My TiBook 500 will open the menus, but then it takes an hour before the city loads, and is completely useless. Boot into OS9 and play it there, just make sure you have QT installed, otherwise your SOL.

    Yea, Sim City 3000 runs about the same on my 1.5Ghz G4 Powerbook in classic as on my 275Mhz 6500 running OS 9 :eek: I so wish I could still boot to 9 for some of my old games, that would be nice.
