Over the weekend I updated my iMac to 10.8.2 today is the first day since the update that I have tried to play the game. If it starts I only get to the Main Menu. Get the Disc Auth Error message. But before the starts there is an error message That The Game Process Can Not Be Started. It played fine until the Mac OS 10.8.2 update.
Exactly the same situation- I was playing the game last night until about 7pm EST. Tried to open the game this morning and got the error message.
Nothing updated on my Mac ProBook during the night, I would have had to authorize it. My launcher hasn't been connecting to the web for over a week also.
So sad that us Mac users are treated like distant relatives and have to endure all kinds of bullshiz while the PC users have few of these issues.

Has anyone else run into this issue yet?
I have installed
High End Loft
Outdoor Living Stuff
I manually re-applied the latest patch by following those instructions and it didn't work.
Seems pretty clear that EA doesn't understand where the problem is either. It'll be interesting to see how long this issue sits around before they address it officially.

How weird, this started happening to me today as well It was fine yesterday, then today I just got the "the game process could not be started" error message. I haven't changed or updated anything since yesterday. I tried restarting my Mac, but that didn't help. Moved my Sims 3 folder to the desktop to see if it would start with nothing installed, still got the same error message. Repairing permissions didn't help either. So, I decided to do a clean re-install and I'm in the process of doing that now. Not how I had planned to spend the evening, but that's the life of a Mac simmer I suppose *frowns*
Edit: I wanted to add that I have that latest patch (but not the Supernatural EP), but I've been playing with that since it was released. I have no idea what could have changed literally overnight to cause this error.

same thing happening here. I'm starting to get so sick of this! I've been playing my game less and less recently because it seems like every time I try to play something else happens that prevents me from being able to run the game. I tried doing the manual patch and it didn't work. I'm really really tired of this crap from EA...after spending countless dollars on their products you would think we deserve some semblance of respect from them, at least acknowledge when you're software has problems!!!
sorry, this is just a building frustration with EA for me, hahah.
Oh my Goodness!! I was reading these and was curious about what was happening. I played last night no problem. I thought I would be safe....well I wasn't! I get the same issue today! I can't play because of the Can't Start Game Process! What is going on? I had no updates to my Mac, or to the game in the time I played last night to now.

Hi! I have the same issue! Played the game fine yesterday. Up to date with latest patch, ALL EP.
But Today I had a security update for Mac OS 10.6.8 ?
Nothing works now! Launcher does not install Store contents: an error occurred during the installation of the content. "Please see the log for more details" ?Where exactly? and I can't launch the game, got "the game process could not be started" error message.
I tried : restarting my Mac, repairing permissions, moved my Sims 3 folder to the desktop, start with nothing installed, still got the same error messages.
