1  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / summer is missing on: October 18, 2007, 03:32:19 pm
i made a thread before trying to figure out why my game wasnt working, thinking it was because of the custom content, but it wasnt.  i searched through all the old thread here and decided to just uninstall everything and reinstall it freshly.

i restalled sims2 and all of expansions (uni,nl,ofb,ffs,gls,pets,and seasons), in the proper order.  i installed the newest seasons patch from the sims 2 site.  i installed custom content and checked to make sure there would be no conflicts using that nifty lil program that does that.  it came back clean.  i used delphys organiser to put everything in lil folders neatly like her program named them to be.  

i started a group of young adults in seasons to go to university.  they started school in the summer and graduated in the spring.  everything went smoothly.  now that they have graduated and returned home, i put them on a lot to build their own adult home and the lil season marker by the zoom and spin buttons is screwed up.  instead of going summer, fall, winter, spring.  it goes winter, fall, spring, winter.  now the game crashes all the time and wont let me build a home or play an already created family lot either, cause the seasons in the towns are messed up.

how do i correct this?  how do i fix the seasons in the towns to make them go summer, fall, winter, spring like they are supposed to?  i wish i had a screen shot to show you but the game freezes when i try to do that function.  wont allow me to do it.  it locks my computer up completely to the point where i cant even get taskmanger to come up to get the game to end when it quits responding.  i have to hold the power button to the tower to shut down the comp to get off the game.  its horrible to my comp.  

i need to fix this.  is there any way to fix this?  has anyone else heard of this problem before?  should i post at the sims 2 site as well?  i hate posting there though cause they are so clinical and runaround instead of give me answers.  any help would be wonderful.  thank you guys for your time and suggestions.  Smiley
2  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / game keeps freezing on: October 03, 2007, 10:31:02 pm
my game was working just fine.  hadnt downloaded or added any new custom content.  hadnt changed anything to it, but it just started freezing and locking up my computer when i pause while playing to set up chains of comands for my sims, or if i choose buy or build mode.  it will allow me to be paused/buy/build mode for a while, sometimes longer than others.  never long enough to build a home.  

i checked through the threads here for similar threads, found a thread that talked about a program that detects conflicting hacks that could cause such a problem.  i downloaded and ran the program, it found nothing.  

there was a blurb in a thread about the amount of cc you have that could effect aswell, i checked and i have less than 50megabytes of stuff in my downloads folder.  so i dont think thats the problem either.  

i dont know whats wrong.  anyone have any other ideas of what i should look for and check out?  

i have up to seasons, over a gig of ram, a nvidia gforce550 i think its called its on the approved list, and when i run sims i turn off all the other programs like the book says to do so the game can access more of the computer.  i dont know what else to do.  it was working just fine for ever it seemed like, and just out of the blue started this freezing.
3  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Squinge and his mods on: June 28, 2007, 09:35:18 pm
seems Squinge and the mods that help him run his portion of the forum have disappeared.  i posted a thread needing help in his help section and the next day everything got locked.  cant reply to anything, cant make new threads.  i havent seen any of his helper mods online in days either, ive been checking the whose online section when i logon.  

just wondering what happened?  thought maybe some of the other mods or admins might know.  i understand that he does all this hardwork in his free time and has a real life that need attending.  just would like a sticky when something comes up that its gonna be closed for a while for whatever the reason maybe.  

thank you for your time, sorry to be a bother.
4  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / bottom fallen out of the fooddishes on: June 24, 2007, 07:31:57 pm
ive been using the bottomless fooddish mods since Squinge uploaded them to the site here for everyone.  have worked great until recently.  

last night i was having trouble with my game, fixed that trouble today.  in the process of trying to find what was wrong i downloaded the hack conflict thingy to see if that might have been the problem causing my game to crash, but it wasnt.  it didnt show any mods conflicting with the bottomless bird/wormrat food or dog/cat food dishes mods.  downloaded the sims2 pack clean installer and found my games problem was a cereal box download.  it was the only mod i deleted from my downloads file.  after deleting it, my game started working again, but now the food dishes empty and get dirty.

i checked and both mods for the full dishs are still in the downloads folder.  why would they stop working like that?  im so confused.

help Sad  please
5  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / game keeps crashing at start up on: June 24, 2007, 07:13:40 am
i have uni, nl, ofb, pets, fun stuff, and glam stuff installed.

i downloaded some food and installed it into my downloads folder lastnight.  now when i try to start my game, while the loading screen is up it just closes the app completely out.  just exits the game.  i went into my downloads and removed all the food downloads and its still doing it, but i wasnt doing it before i put the food in.

so what else could be causing this to happen?

at the sim2 site there was something about the nVidia video cards but mine is on the list of ones that are supposed to work, mines a GeForce FX5500.  

i wasnt having any troubles at all untill last night, been working the last 4 hours trying to fix the problem, checking my comp for corupted files and everything to see if that might be causing it.  nothing is popping up.  

downloaded a thingy to check that none of my other mods might be interfering with one another, says all my hacks are fine.  so i dont know what else to do to try to fix this.  im tired and my mind is blank as to what the next step should be.

help anyone, please?  thank you
