2:58 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Aspyr today released various updates for The Sims: House Party and The Sims: Livin' Large. In addition to various bug fixes for the MacOS 9 versions, the new updates include new carbonized versions for OS X.

Both versions include the following fix:

Macs with multiple video cards installed may experience poor video performance if DrawSprocket chooses the second monitor for gameplay. A new check box in the "Screen Size" dialog lets you tell DrawSprocket to use the main screen (ie, the one with the Mac's Menu Bar) if possible. Note that this check box is disabled on Macs with only one monitor.
If you own The Sims: Livin' Large, be sure to also download the Livin' Large Data Update that includes include fixes for roaches showing up too often as well as other minor "bugs" in some of the Livin' Large specific game objects.

Livin' Large 1.2.2 (OSX)
Livin' Large 1.2.2 (Mac OS 9.x)
House Party 1.3.1 (OSX)
House Party 1.3.1 (MacOS 9.x)
