1  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Blue? on: October 03, 2008, 10:54:14 pm
Mine got worse after I updated the driver for my Nvidia card...happens much sooner, and doesn't give me time to use the shader cheat anymore.  Now, when I try to disable shaders it crashes faster!:smt120
(Gateway, XP, Nvidia & lots of free memory...S2+Uni+Pets+Nightlife+GL+K&B+TSS)
not sure about my other specs

Update:  10-16-08
Just read on MTS2 that, if you have Norton AV, IT can cause the blue screen & crash thing.  Anyone know how to disable Norton while you play, then re-enable for going online?

Sims 2 Hack Conflict Detection Utility  (S2HCDU)  by James A. Sausville  is the one I've found...can't remember if it was here, or MTS2
I'm having the blue screen thing too.  I have an Nvidia card, and just updated the driver, but it actually got doesn't even give me time to use the boolprop useShaders false cheat before it crashes, now.

10-16-08  Just read on MTS2 that Norton AV might cause this problem too...Anyone have more info?
3  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / How do I get the gnome back? on: June 22, 2008, 01:05:08 am
Some teen guy came walking down the street, and my sim wanted to meet new people, so he intro'ed himself.  They chatted for awhile, then, the new guy stole the gnome.  I clicked on the new guy, and found an interaction that said "steal back gnome".  My guy walked off the lot, came back later, and the gnome was in his inventory!  Try that if you see the thief again.:toothy10:

(...had something all typed out and ready to post yesterday, but then InSim had server issues and I ended up losing it all... hope I'm not too late.  Sad )

Try removing any content added since the last time you were able to play the game without it crashing in the catalog.  Also, make sure you don't have duplicate copies of the CEP file (_EnableColorOptionsGMND.package) in your Downloads folder.  You may have a hack or object that's causing an "continuous" error with your sims and keeping them "frozen" on the lot.

Plus, by looking at your zipped logs, I don't really see one that could help too much.  Try this:

   ::smilieiforgetwhi:: Load the game, and when you get to the neighborhood view of whichever neighborhood you choose, call up the cheat console (CTRL + Shift  + C) and type in boolprop testingcheatsenabled true and press Enter.

::smilieiforgetwhi::  After you do that, load up your "problem" lot and wait until it loads up completely.  If all goes as suspected, an error box will pop up right before (or sometimes after) the lot loads up.  

Take note of what type of error it is and the name of the error log that is dumped into the Logs folder.  That's the log that's most likely to help out in this situation.  And for a "quick" skip-over for passing the error by, click the "Delete" option when the error pops up.  It removes whatever object/sim that's causing the error.  If it's a sim, don't worry too much about it, as it's not a permanent deletion... you can easily get them back by either exiting and re-entering the lot, or by using the "Restore Family" option on the InSIMenator's summoner object.  Wink

(hjkjr2  here, You've just fixed a problem I had, too!  Thanks!):cheer:
5  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Discussion / Sims 2 and Discrimination... these two don't mix. on: June 18, 2008, 05:15:41 pm
I think that there is too much self hate out there, that gets turned outward toward others.  If they can find a way to think they're better than someone else, they feel better for awhile.  But it doesn't last, because they're not facing their underlying issues, so they have to do it some more.  It's fear of the different (that they think makes THEM less) because they have no real self respect, which keeps them from having any empathy for others.  
Wouldn't the world be so boring if everyone were just the same?  Hang in there folks, Karma is real, and what goes around comes around Cheesy
(personally, I greatly admire all the Sims artists whose work I've seen, and truly hope that no one gets discouraged by the fearful or jealous creepies out there)

Thanks for the heads-up.  At least they'll be back eventually. :bawl:
7  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Discussion / What's up with Sims 2 Carsource? on: June 14, 2008, 01:14:37 am
Oh well.  Hope they get it back up soon:clock:
8  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Discussion / What's up with Sims 2 Carsource? on: June 12, 2008, 05:46:12 pm
I registered in January, and they say you have to go back to it by the link that they e-mail to you.  Every time I try, the "Board is Unavailable"  I still haven't been able to finish the process, and can't e-mail them because I haven't finished.  Anyone know what the deal is? :smt120
9  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Discussion / Spiffy Sims is going away! (Aug. 1st!) on: June 11, 2008, 07:58:02 pm
Just to let folks know if they hadn't heard, Spiffy Sims will be leaving in August.  So if anyone here has anything there they want to save, please do it soon.  I just recently discovered them, now they'll be gone...Darn Darn Darn!

Not much time left!   They're gonna be gone August 1st!   Spread the word wherever you can, OK?  (I'm on free dial-up, so my downloads are WAAAAY slow, and I've only gotten a little so far...)

Just wondering if Greg ever found that fedora & suit...:worship:
11  Retired Creators / Arcias Specials / Dio Hair,new long hair for males on: May 29, 2008, 10:59:55 pm
Love 'em!!!  The only problem is, since they're not binned, all my guys have blond eyebrows & facial hair(I love brunettes)  How does one go about binning?  And can one bin someone elses CC after it's in the download folder?  (I'm a newbie, as you can tell)  Thanks!
12  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Misc. Mods and Careers / INDEX OF CAREERS/MAJORS on: May 29, 2008, 10:40:54 pm
I was wondering if there are any careers which use the bodybuilder mesh for work attire.  I'm hoping to keep my big buff guys from turning into "90 pound weaklings" when going off to a job!  Thanks!
13  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Female Hair / *Binned* XM hair 46 - glossy naturals on: May 25, 2008, 01:20:53 pm
The mesh link takes you to page 46, but I don't see a mesh that is shaped anywhere near your (lovely) recolor.  Which mesh specifically is it? (I'm kind of new at this)  Thanks!

Thanks, slkn! Got it!

For silly people like me, it's "Flora hair 032" on page 20.

Thanks again!
