Could some kind soul please explain what this means. Just to let SI know, I shall never be purchasing another one of their products again. I'm trying very hard not to get angry here, and would appreciate a calm response.

I did a quick search for you and apparantly the direct download patch is corrupted and you need the torrented link.

I don't have any torrenting software, it doesn't work at my uni.

OK so, SI release a game which doesn't work. Then they eventually put the patch to make the game playable, its only available via torrent. Don't they realise that a high proportion of those who have got the game are students and most university networks do not allow torrents? They have really scored an own goal in terms of customer satisfaction with this game! PLEASE can you provide a source to receive the patch uncorrupted, other than by torrent? Sorry for being grumpy, but you really don't expect to have such a massive delay to play a game...

You may have to wait for there to be a mirror up for the patch, or for them to fix the current version that is on the firect download site then.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

4 possible fixes:

First of all: Reboot the mac.

Second, repair permissions.

Third: log in with admin permission

fourth: Download and install a free app for mounting dmg files:

go on this site, on the right hand side it says TÚlÚcharger ce fichier in small letters, click on this and it should start the download of the patch
i did this last night, on university res net and it worked fine, only problem is my tiger won't run the patch but aside from that it should work for leopard users

Just to clarify the direct download is not corrupted.

I've removed the link from the page for the time being. Not having access to a Mac I've not been able to test it but I made sure people had it working from the link I used to get the file before downloading it so I'm unconvinced. However I can't ignore it if lots of people are having problems - I'll replace the file up there with the torrent download in the next few hours.

Please try one of the links above for the time being, if they don't work you need to try the fixes for mounting DMG files.
