    Specs:
    Black MacBook, 2GHz, 200 GB, 2GB RAM
    Run a game in "Windowed" mode...
    How do you make a game run in windowed mode?

    I've been trying for 2 hours (no kidding) trying to make this work, on a windows computer you only have to press either "options, properties, or performance" to make this work. MAC DOESN'T have any of these and im getting frustrated.

    The game is Sims life stories btw, Any good samaritan who can help would be appreciated.

    Just a thought here. Isn't Sims life stories an Expantion pack needing Sims 2 to run ? Plus are you trying to run a Mac version on a PC ?

    She figured out that the only way to keep from being frozen was to stay in motion,
    and long ago converted most of her flesh into liquid.
    Now when she smells danger, she spills herself all over, like gasoline, and lights it.

    This is annoying me more than you, as I have done this for The Sims 2 so that before I load it I can select Window Or Full Screen as well as Set the Default but I have totally forgot how to do it.

    Sorry, I'll try to fiddle around and remember how I did it.

    I used to play before I started college. I played in Stormscale. I've always wanted to jump back in, but none of my friends who i used t play with have, and I've been so busy with school.
