      Compatibility fixes for issues running SimCity 3000 and SimCity 3000 Unlimited on Windows 8 and later.
       
      NOTE: This fix may cause the game to start in windowed mode the next time it is launched. To fix this delete SC3.cfg in the installation folder or run the game with the -f parameter.
       
      Extract anywhere and run install.bat to apply the fix.
       
      This fix works by applying the following compatibility fixes to SC3.EXE and sc3U.EXE:
      16BitColor (forces 16-bit color depth; allows use of windowed mode with -w parameter)
