I note that there are three sets of resources .fpk files. They are called "Common", "DX9" and "DX9_LOW", and I think they contain the bulk of the graphics files used by the game. Note that you can use the latest version of Macapaka to examine and extract the contents of these files. As far as I can tell, these files are identical to the equivalent Windows files. However, I wonder if the problem is that one of these files is faulty, but isn't normally used by the Windows version. If that one *is* used by the Mac version then perhaps it's unable to display the Middle Eastern city graphics, and falls back to the European ones?
