The Sims Patched to 1.1.5
6:00 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

MacGameFiles has listed a new patch to Aspyr Media's port of the dangerously addictive life-management sim The Sims. This minor update seems to address a problem being experienced by those with multiple-monitor setups, and is available for both the OS 9 and Carbon versions of the game.

Here is a description of the problem and the 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.
The Readme notes that this patch is not necessary if you have installed and updated either of the Sims expansion packs that are available. If your dual monitor setup is giving you fits, here is the fix.
