Nice to see the Update Uploads, but will EA insist of removing them?
We know, these files only work with the original game already installed.

The download links for the Updaters at Macgamefiles dont work for me !
I found the files at Aspyr by adding the updater's file name to (*). Aspyr is abandoning support for Mac OS X 10.6 and earlier. So I archived the files here for the future.
