Last Updated 8/10/2013--Under Construction
The NAM requires SimCity 4 Deluxe/Rush Hour Version 1.1.638 or later. It will not run on Original SimCity 4 (any Version 1.0.x of SC4) and attempting to run it on Original SimCity 4 will cause the game to crash. Because of the massive changes to how transit networks are handled in SimCity 4 Deluxe/Rush Hour, it is not possible to make a version of the NAM that is compatible with Original SimCity 4 (ditto with 99.999% of all custom content out there, which requires Rush Hour/Deluxe).
Note: This list is continually undergoing additions and construction.
Here, you will find answers to some frequently asked questions regarding the NAM, including common technical support issues. It also covers optional NAM Components, like the RHW, SAM, etc. If your question is not answered here, the quickest way to get a response is generally by posting in the NAM Issues Thread at SC4 Devotion, or the NAM General Discussion Thread - 2nd Edition at Simtropolis. Please note that this particular thread is not intended for asking new questions or commenting. Any irrelevant posts will either be moved or deleted by the site staff.
