CPU Processor: PowerPC G3 or later
CPU Speed: 500MHz or faster
Memory: 256 MB or higher

A note about the downloads available from above:
1st download is The Sims Complete Collection. The game has English and German version also include all expansion.

2nd download is a NoCD / NoDVD pre-cracked executable to replace specifically version 2.9.1 of The Sims Complete (English). Created with the tool from the 3rd download.

3rd download contains a NoCD / NoDVD crack tool which changes the game's executable not to require physical media to be inserted for playing. The tool itself works only under Mac OS X, but the resulting file runs under both Mac OS and Mac OS X, like the original game file.

Architecture: PPC (Carbonized)

Tested the game and crack on power mac G4 1.25 Gz mirror door 2003 on Mac OS X 10.4.11 and Mac OS X 10.5.8 and it will play. Mac OS X 10.6.8 with Rosetta not tested.

The game also works with Mac OS 9.2.2 once installed. May or may not work all the way down to Mac OS 8.6, assuming CarbonLib 1.6 is installed.

This happened over a year ago so I don't remember it word for word but the jist of it was "Our records indicate you have downloaded copyrighted software yadda yadda yadda" and it said some legal jargon about Firaxis.

They didn't take legal action but it was worded like more of a "knock it off" type warning letter. Put the fear of God in me Tongue

I'm not really skippy on VPN usage but I figured Macintosh Garden's stuff was so old it was pretty much public domain so I didn't worry at the time.

First time I hear something like that happening to someone downloading from the Garden. What exactly did your ISP state?

We have little impact on how ISP's conduct their business, at this point the option would probably be to use a VPN.

At some point, we will however have the option to offer downloads via Hotline, KDX and Wired, where there are options for encrypted transfers / communications.

Anybody sure if it's safe to download this? I already got a pretty scary letter from my ISP for downloading Civilization III from here :/

Hold the command key while opening the app and it will give the resolution options in a window.

First download The sims Complete Collection dmg and then install the game and Then download the crack and mounted dmg.The third download is No CD Crack or download fourth download put in English crack already applied. Then run the crack put in English or German. It should works in mac os x 10.4.11 and mac os x 10.5.8 and another users said it works in mac os x 10.6.8 with Rosette.

I look in way change the screen solution to 1024 x 768 in the main screen of game but I don't see way to change the screen. On power mac G4 1.25 Ghz mirror door 2003 and set the screen at 1024 x 768 when I launch the game but game launch with smaller screen in mac os x 10.5.8. Also game is for sell on electric arts for $9.99 but the game name has been to change to Sims 4 for PC.

Game and crack work great. Only issue is resolution being locked at 800x600. Running the game on a iMac G4 20" 1.25Ghz with 10.5.8 and 1.5Gb of RAM. I know the machine is capable of running the game in 1024x768... anyone else have the same issue and know a solution?

Downloaded all the files on my laptop after finally installing OS Snow Leopard again, but this is my first cracked game on a Mac. How could I install it with the No CD crack? I downloaded all the files, but I’m not sure what to do with them. Sad

Edit: I feel extremely dumb now and I got it working on my laptop. Thank you so much for this!!!

The no CD is crack and universal for english and german for PPC and intel. Please somebody tested this game in mac os x 10.6.8 with Rosetta. I don't know it will mount in mac os x 10.6 or greater. I might not work on later macs.

Your version is too recent. It doesn't have Rosetta, which is what is required to run PPC-only binaries on Intel Mac OS X systems.

Hi Scott, I'm using macOS High Sierra, 10.13.6

Is there anything extra I will need to install to get it to work on my OS, or is my version too recent?

scott Praed's picture
by scott Praed - 2020, June 24 - 6:10am

What system are you using ?

The no CD works on mac os x only. It will will mount in mac os x 10.5.8 and mac os x 10.4.11.
I don't know it will mount in mac os x 10.6 or greater.

This error appears when I try to open the game:

The Sims Complete NoCD cannot be opened because of a problem.

Check with the developer to make sure The Sims Complete NoCD works with this version of macOS. You may need to reinstall the application. Be sure to install any available updates for the application and macOS.

How do I fix this?

Drag the game to hard drive to install. The crack might need to installed. Copy english crack already applied to game. This play in english and German not french.

Incidentally, regarding this upload, after I installed it on Mac OS 9, I noticed there was an English version executable and a French one. The description on this page says it's both "English and German" rather than "English and French", though. Am I missing something?

No kidding! I have a couple of zipped items that I've had no luck extracting on my Chromebook's Android Basilisk II running OS8. It's quite frustrating to be jumping around on different machines (which I haven't setup in quite some time) just to work with .zip files on old OSes Sad

Jatoba's picture

Man, we really need an OS-X-ZIP decompressor on Mac OS 9 and earlier. Regular unzipping + manually joining the resource and data forks file by file, and that too without drag & drop, is really not the way to go, and OS-X-zipped archives for software that works in OS 9 and earlier are simply everywhere.

If I ever write a Mac program in my life, the first one will have to be an OS-X-ZIP decompressor as a FAT binary, and call it PurgeZip or something. Hopefully just enough code can be borrowed from The Unarchiver and/or this (assuming that code isn't exclusive to AppleSingle), although I doubt it will be that simple.

Launches on 10.6.8 via Rosetta, at least on a 2008 Mac Pro.

I sure don't understand what im doing wrong with this, a had a previous base install of The Sims, working just fine OS 9 w/ CarbonLib 1.6- however this download after copied over- Starting game with "Sims Complete" just throws error that Mac OS 8.6 or higher is required.... you don't say..

How can I play the Sims in German? The text says that the game is in English and German. But I only find English and French. Thanks in advance for your answers.

Then according to the other Sims pages, this should work in OS 8 also.

How does it run when compared to it running on OS X? I know it technically shouldn't make a difference, I'm just curious on the off chance that there is. Smile

Works under Mac OS 9 as well.
