Be aware that Aspyr just finished a port/revamp of Sims 2 and released it yesterday on the Mac App Store for modern-day machines running Mavericks. https://itunes.apple.com/en/app/the-sims-2-super-collection/id883782620
I just bought the Sims 2 yesterday afternoon and I can't even play it, how lame. I installed this patch (as well as the others Rev A and B), with multiple re-installations (in different locations) all to get a prompt to insert the original disc. Only problem is the disk IS inserted and running. I am running it with BOTH my Powerbook G4 and PowerMac G5, and still getting the same message. Bloody hell!
Game still crashes at moments when it really shouldn't (ie no custom content being used, only one sim in the house at the time, just spontaneously crashes). I've been irritated with this low quality unstable port since it was first released, and this most recent patch doesn't appear to address the problems I've encountered on my G5.
Added italian language game support? Alright, well I am from Holland.. I'd like to play this in Dutch. How do we even PLAY the game in another language than English? Holding down the L while starting up doesn't seem to work, it only worked for the sims 1...
When I try to run this patch, it tells me that I don't have permission to modify Applications. I am the admin account on this Mac. It doesn't ask for a password, it just stops you dead. So this is useless.
Way to go, Aspyr. Little testing next time?

See if I ever buy anything from Aspyr in the future. That and the "Copy Protected For Your Protection" smarm. Please. Go choke on your tongue, Aspyr.
