CPU STATS:

WINDOWS 7 32bit

Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.26 Ghz

Memory 2048MB RAM

2833MB Page file available

DIRECT X 11

ASUS AH3650 Series Graphics Card

THE PROBLEM:

Loaded SIM CITY 4 DELUXE TO MY CPU. I get to the screen where you chose your city. I click on it, start a new city then it crashes and closes as soon as it loads the new city. Any help here on this. This is my all time fav game and I hate I can not get it to work in Windows 7.

I have tried Capability Mode and no luck

It doesn't sound like a problem with Windows. Can you please post the first 20 lines only of your latest exception report? Also, is this a new computer, or have you played SC4 on Windows 7 before?

    Only Plugins that i used when I worked with XP

    Two things:

    Rename your Plugins folder to Plugins.old and start the game. If you can now select your city, regardless of brown boxes, without a crash, then you are having plugins conflicts. Put your plugins back to normal.

    Try adding -CPUCount:1 to your command line in your shortcut. Remember that all options have a single space before the hyphen.

    And one more question. Do you have a 16:9 screen on your new machine? If so, also add:

    -CustomResolution:enabled -r:x,y,32

    to your line where x and y are your screen width and height.

  • Ok so I reinstalled the game without plugins, repatched the game, and followed your advice. I still get a crash every time I Start a new city or an old one....it is like its trying to load it, then boom crash. I am using the same hardware that I had on my XP machine, this time a new hard drive and Windows 7. So I know my GFX card is not the issue...but something is causing this game to crash
