Issue with patch for NAM 35 installation

9 posts in this topic Last Reply

I am attempting to install the 1.1.638.0 patch that I need to update to NAM 35. I downloaded, but upon installation am being told it cannot find the "old file". Can someone suggest a next step? Thanks

The first thing we need to know it which version of SC4 are you running. Did it come from some install disks or a digital vendor? If it was digital, did you buy it from Origin?

If you have a digital version it should come pre-patched, the patches will fail because they simply aren't required. The exception being the Origin version, but the unpatched version they are selling is sadly unpatchable too.

However if the error occurs updating the disk version, that could be for a number of reasons. If any files related to the patch have been modified from the originals (for example adding the I-HT fix), that will cause the update to fail. You should use the offical patches right away after installing SC4. Once that's out of the way, you are then safe to further modify them if need be. If this doesn't help you, find the file Patchlog.txt that is created in the folder you ran the patch from, paste a copy of it's contents here and we can see exactly what is going wrong.

  • I have 1.1.613.0 installed on 4-4-17, but I still have no NAM 35 installation. I purchased the disks at Amazon, and installed them. My computer had crashed and I updated everything on it. I lost the SC4 disks I had, so I had to purchase the new ones. I did no other modifications prior to attempting the patch install.

    If you're on 1.1.613, that's the European unpatched version.  You'll want to install the SKU2 version of the update.

    If you bought the game from Origin, unfortunately, you're out of luck.  Origin is selling an unpatched and unpatchable version, which is missing a number of stability fixes, and can't run the NAM.  See this thread.  There's several other threads around as well.  Apparently, Origin even issued an "update" at one point, that actually downgraded people's copies to the nerfed 1.1.610.

    If you're going to buy another copy of SC4, I'd recommend GOG.com (Good Old Games) instead of Steam.  It's the same price as Steam's version, but there's no DRM associated with it. 

    If you're willing to push Origin customer service enough, you can probably get a refund from them, as the user in the thread I linked did.

        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).

        NAM Common Technical Support Issues

        1. Why am I getting a red arrow, preventing me from placing certain puzzle pieces, like Avenue Roundabouts or RHW pieces?

        2. What is the correct order for installing the NAM and its Plugins?

        3. After installing the latest NAM, why do my Railroads, Light Rail and Monorail no longer work?

        4. Why is my game crashing to desktop after placing puzzle pieces?

        5. What is going on with the traffic simulator options?

        6. After installing the latest NAM, why are there missing textures at my Road intersections?

        7. What is BSC Cleanitol?

        8. Should I DatPack the NAM?

        9. When is the next NAM coming out? Or the next RHW, etc.?

        On slope transition Elevated Dragable Rail to Rail !
        Elevated plopable rail pieces are nice with a pair  of on slope transition pieces; elevated dragable rail however doesn´t yet have one. Caribou Long slope to ground and underground are nice but a straight like level embankment sollution like the above mentioned transition would be nice !

        So I have been learning to use the RHW component of the NAM, and today I noticed that when I connect Flex ramps to road networks, I get a blank tile on the RHW side of the intersection, like so:
         

        I tried a fresh install of the NAM, but that didn't solve it, so I was wondering if it's being caused by the way I'm connecting the networks. I don't have this problem if the ramp runs right through the road, but that doesn't look great either. If anyone has any advice on this, it would be greatly appreciated.
