As the title does anyone have Simcity for MAC? I have a copy but my installer file is broken! Would it be possible for someone to POST a copy of their installer file somewhere so that I could download it from there (e.g. Rapidshare, Megaupload...). I really want to play this old game but have damaged my installer application by storing it on a PC drive and the original disk broke! I think the rest of the files should still work.

I can't find this game anywhere for sale in the UK where I live so would really like to fix my copy.

Please Help!
Thanks in Advance.

Hello and welcome to MacNN. You will find that this group is not particularly RS/MU friendly. We keep the dialogue clean-ish and any subject that borders on questionable ethics tend to get closed or slammed. Just advice for you as you are a new recruit.

I did some quick research and you might check in with Simtropolis Forum or EA Support OnLine. If you have your valid serial number, there is no reason they can't help you. Hope it works out

If you bought the game but the disk is broken (or the installer), you can try downloading via bittorrent. 100% legal if you already bought the game.

That’s not completely true because downloading files via Bittorrent equals redistributing them in most cases.*

I’d still suggest the same thing though.

*perhaps even when leeching.
