Additional Comments

Game switches to blank black screen but doesn't progress any further, with mouse pointer that occasionally sticks. top reports simcity process at near 100% CPU but nothing happens. None of the renderer (-d:Software, -d:opengl, etc.), audio, intro or other switches appears to make any difference.

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.
