Newly inaugurated Sim-mayors are reporting technical problems with the recently launched Mac version of SimCity
, ranging from installation issues to technical glitches.
Currently, a widely reported bug prevents the Mac version of SimCity
from running in full-screen mode. Some players are unable
to complete installation, rendering the game unplayable. For Mac users, the problems encountered thus far seem to stem from technical hiccups, rather than the server-side issues that plagued
the Windows version after its launch earlier this year.
EA Maxis has acknowledged
the reported problems in a recent update, and has suggested solutions
for affected players.
A Maxis spokesperson has contacted Joystiq, noting that many of these problems were fixed in the game's latest update. "We are pleased to advise that the installation-related issues some players experienced with SimCity on Mac have been resolved," the spokesperson said.]
