12/27/2012 10:25:00 AM - FreeGameEmpire Please also check if the mount command before tre start.bat finished successfuly.
12/27/2012 10:22:00 AM - FreeGameEmpire Hi, please check if your files are properly at place. Check your profile directory for Application data\App Client\packages\SimCity-2000. There should be start.bat and SC2000.exe, if not, the installation was somehow corrupted. You can extract savegames to another location and delete SimCity-2000 completely, this will reload the data on the next startup.
12/26/2012 11:42:00 PM - Martin Lobach Hi - it worked until yesterday. But then I got the same problem as reported here: 12/24/2012 3:57:00 PM - HELP : there is a problem, every time i start a game i get to the start.bat but it says illegal command and it want start, PLEASE HELP!

12/6/2011 2:25:00 AM - XAVIER LOPEZ BIKES
11/30/2011 9:07:00 PM - genghiskhan777 If your zones wont develop there could be several reasons. There is a demand for each zone, which you can improve by lowering the taxes for a zone or the overall taxes. Also a little sign will pop up saying they want random crap like police or a hospital, and i think if you dont buy one it might effect construction. Make sure they have electricity and water and road access within 3 squares.
11/20/2011 10:13:00 AM - FreeGameEmpire Please read instruction page following the Play NOW button. Firefox and Chrome require a plug-in to run the emulator.
