1  Simmers' Paradise / FreeTime Help / Re: Trouble finding the last bug in freetime... on: December 22, 2008, 11:56:56 am
I thought I did patch my game, oh wait I patched it for apartment life. I don't think I patched it for freetime. Okay thanks...

I've caught all the other bugs and was surprised to have caught one while on a tour on vacation. I've been bug hunting so many times and still can't find the last bug. The strategy guide doesn't say anything about finding the bugs except for doing the bug hunt option does anyone know any other way to find the last bug or anything would be helpful I've tried just about everything to find the last bug with no luck.
3  Simmers' Paradise / Apartment Life Help / Placing Cars on: October 10, 2008, 01:45:17 pm
I am very interested in a tutorial as I am having a hard time just getting my garage to work in the game. I've made my garage so that it only has an entrance into the apartment and it's still not working for me. Is there something I''m forgetting or not knowing to do?
I would also love to know how to be able to use just a driveway for the apartment instead of a garage. Any help would be helpful! Thanks.

I just made an experimental apartment building with driveways and it worked out pretty good.  I was able to add a car before changing the zoning and rent furnished and the car was there and usable, and I could also add a car after renting the apartment and use it.
I plan on making a new apartment building with a little more style and function (basement garages) and posting it.  I can make a tutorial as I go and post that if anyone is interrested.

5  Simmers' Paradise / Apartment Life Help / Buy mode problem? on: September 03, 2008, 12:38:13 pm

Marilyn, is this an apartment that you built or one that came with Belladonna Cove?  I've had no problem with any of the provided apartments.

If you made your own apartment, and used the room dividing strips that came with Pets, that's your problem.  They are considered walls for some things, to include determining the size of the apartment.  Make a break in their placement so as not to completely inclose any part of the apartment, and you should be able to make full use of it.

I first tried this on an apartment that I had downloaded. And nothing worked. Then I tried one of the apartments already in the game and it would only allow me to add a lamp to a desk? Nothing else. Is there a limit on the furniture you can have in an apartment?

You can only place items inside your apartment or an enclosed patio/deck.

I know this, but it won't let me place things in my home either, not just the telescope but other items, too.
7  Simmers' Paradise / Apartment Life Help / Buy mode problem? on: August 31, 2008, 09:46:02 pm
I was playing the game and moved my sim into an apartment. I wanted to buy some different stuff for them like a telescope for instance and it won't allow me to place it on the lot?
Am I doing something wrong?
8  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / my game keeps freezing and i don't know why??? on: April 26, 2008, 02:53:43 pm
My game keeps freezing up on me and the only way I can get out of my game is to shut the computer down manually. I have no custom content installed. I have updated the video card driver. I think I have all the sytem requirements.

I have a Dell XPS with Intel Core Duo2 3.0GHz processor, Nvidia GeForce 8600 GTS dual 256MB video card, 320GB NCQ Serial ATA Hard Drive (7200 RPM) w/ 16MB DataBurst Cache, Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005,English for Dimension XPS 600.

I also have all ep's and stuff packs. Can someone help me???
9  Simmers' Paradise / Sims Life Stories Help / is the sims2 compatible with stories??? on: April 02, 2008, 12:10:02 am
i know this may seem like a dumb question but on my computer i can't play either game when they are both insalled... so i uninstalled all my sims2 games so i could play the "stories" games and now i want to play my sims2 games so i uninstalled all the "stories" and tried to install my sims2 games and after putting in the 2nd disc of the sims2 and an error message pops up saying "a problem occurred when trying to transfer the file TSdata-res-sound-voice6.package from the media." and it won't finish installing.

i don't have any problems with the sims2 game until after i install any of the "stories" games. so i'm wondering if while installing those games if they possibly install something that doesn't get taken out when uninstalling them and if that's incompatible with the sims2 games?

The game freeze during loading with a sound glitch ? And you try to load it without custom content ? It's strange. :roll: Sorry but have you been able to play the game before ? Wink

yes, i was able to play the game before, but i also realized that while playing life stories that while playing the game it froze up on me. Then i remember that while i was playing runescape (on the internet) that froze up on me too, but i thought that was something to do with the site.

i scanned my computer for viruses (using mcafee) and scanned my computer for spyware/adaware (whatever you call it, using spydoctor) and neither programs found anything...

everything was fine up until a few days ago and to my knowledge nothing has been downloaded on this computer since a 2weeks ago, when i was downloading stuff from the sims resource for my game. And even after that everything was fine.
11  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Can't get into my game, Help... on: January 02, 2008, 05:20:11 pm
My game just started doing this, it's like when you play a c.d. the music skips...
well in the game as i start it up the music starts skipping and it freezes.
i took all my downloads out of the game and it still does it...
can someone help me fix this?
or tell me what's going on?
12  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Bon Voyage hates me! on: November 17, 2007, 05:24:12 pm
I'm having so many issues with this game I don't even know where to begin. and most of the time it's when I have no downloads in the game. sometimes it works fine...for a little while and other times it just don't work at all. I think the game is cursed! I really do...

Okay now that I'm done venting...
The game won't start unless you delete the .cache files all the time and after deleting them if I want to go back into the game I have to restart my computer. I read somewhere in this forum that you also have to delete the thumbnails I haven't done that. Does that mean I have to go into the thumbnails folder and delete everything in there or can i just delete the thumbnails folder each time? And would this fix the problem I'm having or should I just uninstall the whole game and reinstall it?

I think I have gotten rid of all the hacks and stuff that don't work with bon voyage...
so after installing everything what is the best way to put all my cc back in?
like all my houses, families and neighborhoods I've had since seasons do I put them back in the game before I install bon voyage? and my downloads folder after bon voyage?

Oh, yeah, what's the best way to uninstall the game am i suppose to go to control panel or where it says uninstall the sims2____ (bon voyage, seasons,etc...)?

And which folders should I be backing up?

I just want to make sure I'm doing this right, because I want my game to work perfectly....

Please Help!!!!!!!!:sad4::smt120
13  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Something wierd about bigfoot??? on: November 16, 2007, 02:44:05 pm
Okay, I share my game with my friend and she has the hardest time befriending bigfoot...
I've never had a problem befriending bigfoot and I really don't try that hard all I did was to allow my sim to fish with bigfoot until the relationship scores were up enough and then I checked my vacation checklist thingy and it shows up that I met that goal...
So, I watched her play thinking she did something wrong or something and the stuff she did shouldn't make it not appear she chatted, admired,joked,gave gifts, etc...
and the realtionship scores were both over where they were suppose to be (top was 100 and bottom was over 6, she had it at 14 when I checked it) and it didn't satisfy that vacation goal? I've tried this several times and she's tried this several times and everytime I was able to get my sim to fulfill that goal and everytime she tried it she was unable to fulfill that goal. We've done this with downloads and with nothing in the game.
Can anyone explain this to me?
I told her she was just trying to hard, but I really don't think that's the real problem...

Thank you that was the problem. I had thought you could only do certain gestures in certain places.
