Sim City 4 Deluxe Edition Play problems. [SOLVED]

Post by sarahjau on Fri 07 Nov 2014, 22:30

Hi.

I have d/loaded Sim City 4 Deluxe edition, I've followed the Installation Guide instructions to the letter, having d/loaded the files, mounted them onto a virtual drive on my PC and installed the game.

Problem is that when I click on the .exe file in the Crack folder, or if I click on the SimCity4 icon in the Maxis folder that has been created in my Start Menu to try and play the game - it just pops up the picture of that bridge and hangs.

If I click on the virtual drive and Autoplay from the 'CD', then I get the first screen that asks me to click to either Play or Uninstall (and a couple of other options).

So I click on the 'Play' option - and all I get is that picture of the bridge and then it hangs.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!
Sarah

Hi there, and welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Smile

So, did you follow the Step 7 of the guide? The part where you need to Copy and Replace the SimCity 4.exe from the Crack folder to the game installation directory? This directory should be at Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\SimCity 4 Deluxe\Apps. If you can't find it there, try at Program Files (x86)\Maxis\SimCity 4 Deluxe\Apps. Only after you've copied the .exe, double click on it to start the game.

Please, let us know how it goes. Good luck!

Hi There.

Thanks for such a quick response! And incidentally - thanks so much for your site - I love the Sims and Sim City!.

Ta da! It worked! I did follow that step originally, but I wasn't clicking on the .exe file that is located there. I was still going back to the original Crack file.

It works! Success! You, my friend are a legend!

Have a great day!

Sarah
