Aspyr Media has released the Universal Binary patch for the best-selling game, The Sims 2. The patch will fully update any previous version of The Sims 2 to version 1.0 Rev D. This patch provides Universal support for Sims 2 and provides fixes for several minor issues.

Here's a complete list of fixes:

- Adds native Intel support
- Fixes a problem rotating Sims with the mouse in Create-A-Sim mode
- Prevents The Sims 2 and Body Shop from running at the same time
- Adds the "Optimized Rendering" option to non-English preferences dialogs
- Fixes a crash on quit under OS/X 10.4 with certain NVIDIA adapters
- In window mode, prevents selecting a window size equal to or larger than the screen size
- Fixes a problem running the game inside a folder having extended ASCII characters in the name
- Disables the preferences menu after the game is running since nothing can be changed anyway
- Zoom function now works with the "Mighty Mouse" scroll ball
- Corrects terrain colors in the neighborhood overview
