What works

Installs and runs

Have to use the no CD patch to play it

Had to use sudo to install the official patch (before I installed the no CD patch)

What does not

When you start or load a city and then hit the Mayor tools button (road building, start a school, everything else, etc) the whole screen outside the toolbar turns yellow. If you hit the Mayor tools button again everything turns normal again. Unfortunately this doesn't let you play the game.

HowTo / Notes

How to use custom resulutions

By default, SimCity 4 only allows you to use resolutions up to 1280x1024, but it's very easy to use any resolution you want, just add this to your launcher/start script:

-CustomResolution:enabled -r1920x1080x32

Replace 1920x1080 with your desired resolution.
