Hi,

I wanna install SC on my Mac now… The Install Button is orange and if I hit it Origin says: installing for a few moments and that's it! If I click on the game again: the same… and so on and so on…

What's wrong?

Hi M.

I have an error message coming up and stating to try it again in a few moments. I spoke to customer support and they said it is due to high traffic. All should be fine on your account, might just a lot of people trying to access it, LAUNCH Day to us MACs

- turned out I had simcity downloaded and that´s where the error came from.

I have the same problem as well... having waited for so long, they still don't want some of us to play the game yet...

If you get mutexAlert please restart your machine and load SimCity again.

Getting an error seems to be better than getting nothing…

EA, is there a trend of "disappointing and annoying your customers to the extreme" running in your company?

why oh why, after such a long wait, with a big company like this you just can't cope with the expected launch day traffic? I paid months ago, hoping that one day soon I could play with my friends on PCs. Now most of them have given up the game already, and yet I still CAN'T even install it!

EA is doing a great job, it is all us MAC users trying to access it all at the same time as we have been anticipating it for months. I am sure we will all be happy neighbor Mayors soon. I am just too excited to get upset and what will be the point in being angry? The Developers have done a terrific job and we will soon be able to play until the day we die. And with constructive feedback and criticism there is always room for improvement

Happy MAC LAUNCH DAY everyone and hope we will soon be able to download
