Game won’t launch on Origin

This applies particularly to older games which aren’t support to high resolutions and current graphics cards as in this case Spore. Spore for example runs on my current macOs Sierra without problems. You only have to make some changes. These settings can be applied to any game.

Let’s start friends “how to launch a game in windowed mode”

  1. Open Origin
  2. Go to Origin in your library, click on the game cover, you see a gearwheel (Settings) , keep an eye on my pic
  3. Navigate to Game Properties
  4. Navigate to  “Advanced launch options”.
  5. Use the command line and type -w
  6. Say save
  7. Afterwards launch the game
  8.  Go under the options and set the final graphics, including window mode
  9. Say ok and close the game
  10. Go to the Origin option and delete the -w
  11. Start the game again
