Simcity 4 1.02 + G5 + 10.3.5 = Crash crash crash!
Posted 22 August 2004 - 05:06 PM
Performance doesn't really seem any better on my Dual 2Gig G5 with 3.5 gigs of RAM, which is surprising, but that isn't my main issue. The problem is the stupid game crashes all the freaking time. It seems to be completely random - I have gone hours with no crash, and just a minute ago I fired it up and started playing and I crashed within 2 minutes.
This is a fresh install of SimCity 4 which was updated to 1.02 immediately. I am running 10.3.5. Any thoughts?

I guess we will have to wait and see what Rush Hour does.

I have the same problems to the letter with the same machine (G5-2000MP).
I have noticed the crash while using the scroll wheel as well, but I MOSTLY see the problem when I am "underground" laying water pipe.
Random crash anywhere from two minutes to two hours after I start playing. It might be my imagination, but it seems like I crash less if I save constantly. Maybe a buffer or memory management problem that is sidelined a bit by saving to disk? I dunno.
Anyway, I also got the same reply from Aspyr, install the update (even though I sent them the crash log with the update listed).
Oh well, good luck to us all....
