I own a last 2007, early 2008, Macbook.
I've recently been trying to get the original Sims working, however I've hit a roadblock and require some assistance.
When opening the game it runs the opening credits and the beginning cinematics.
Once you skip, or wait through these, the game closes and a box states the following:
"DrawSprocket cannot switch to the requested resolution [800x600, 16bit, 1 buffer(s)]
(Make sure your computermeets the display requirements specified in the Read Me file)."
So instinctively I changed the resolution and tried again to no avail.
I've looked on the internet and there is no answer so I come to here to find out if any of you have an answer.
I have updated the game to 1.25 Carbon, a fix that is meant to work but apparently doesn't.
Here are my specs:
Mac OS X - 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Version 10.5.8 - Lion
If you could help or offer suggestions I'd appreciate it.
