16  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Resolved:chest pound gesture in Takemizu???? HELP!!! on: November 02, 2007, 11:47:13 am
Okay, this is a little complicated. I have a brand new computer because the old computer I had was ruined in a flood (including the external hardrive that had all my games backup files). I had taken my old computer in to see if maybe they could possibly retrieve the game data so I could have all my custom content back. They were having trouble with this so, I went ahead and installed all my new (i bought all new games because I wasn't able to get the ones I lost in a flood, they are stuck in a desk) games (all ep's and stuff packs up to bon voyage). I played a little and I downloaded new stuff I only ran into one problem where I wasn't able to use the massage table, but I'm pretty sure this is do to something I downloaded and I think I can fix that problem by going through my new downloads.

A few weeks went by and I got a phone call saying that they were able to retrieve my game files from the destroyed computer. So, I backed up my new downloads and other game content and I put it aside. Then I uninstalled all my games. Then, this may be where I screwed up but I installed all the games up to seasons (where I left off with the old computer) then my game files (I just put the sims 2 file in mydocuments/EA games and deleted the other sims2 file). I have all my stuff and got back-ups just in case. I went in the game and checked everything, everything seemed to be working fine.

Then I went ahead and installed the last 2 stuff packs and bon voyage which I didn't have installed on the last computer.I had to reinstall my downloads folder because it must have erased some (or all) of my downloads. I have all my stuff now, but when I go on vacation I went to 3 lakes and it wouldn't allow me to do the gesture, I decided to check Takemizu and it allowed me to do only the chest pound gesture? I know that the gesture for Takemizu is the bow not the chest pound gesture...

So, after discovering this I removed my downloads folder and went back into the game I am now allowed to do the chest pound gesture in 3 Lakes but in Takemizu I still get the chest pound gesture. I also noticed that in 3 Lakes I tried to join in on the slap dance but the icon would pretty much disappear as soon as I clicked on the option to do so in the pie menu.

So there may be something bad in my downloads folder... I can deal with that, but what could be causing this problem when my downloads folder isn't in the game? I haven't installed the patch yet but I haven't seen anyone with this problem either. I just have a feeling that the patch won't help the problem, anyways. I'm thinking that maybe something in my old game files got installed somewhere other than the downloads folder and is causing a problem with the game, but I have no idea where to look.

Please help me!
17  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / restoring maxis skintone defaults? on: October 23, 2007, 04:12:12 pm
Can this be done? I downloaded some skintones that replaced the defaults but they look really bad in my game. I tried deleting the files, but that didn't work. Can someone help me fix this?
18  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Discussion / I lost all my downloads because of a flood! on: October 22, 2007, 08:34:58 pm
The home we were living in was flooded and I've finally been able to get a new computer and all my sims2 games and stuff packs. I had somewhere like 22,000 downloads for my game, that I have downloaded over the years and now they're all gone. The funny thing (okay so it's not that funny) is that I had everything backed up onto an external hardrive and I always made updates of my files often so that I wouldn't have to deal with losing everything...

So, if anyone could help me find some of the things I've lost I would be very greetful.

I need to find a blur/censor remover
some anatomically correct skintones (I am well over age 18)
some skintones in general like alien skintones, etc...
the helping hand for the university
some OFB hacks like i used to have this painting that builds up the customer ratings and a bear statue that gives you all the gold badges
a telescope that allows you to be abducted by aliens
clothing for male (all ages), teens, children, toddlers, elders and young adults (adult females are easy to find clothing for)
Big (as in huge) tv
new outerwear clothing (for seasons)
a bender (from futurama) robot
a table that had 2 peices an end peice and a middle peice that allows you to make a table as big as you want it.

That's pretty much all I can think of for now, but these are some of the things I'm having trouble finding on my own (considering I lost all the links that was in my favorites folder on my old computer that could have taken me to some of the sites that I use to download stuff from)
19  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / New Beta Nvidia driver is out on: September 22, 2007, 06:30:03 pm
after installing seasons i realized that i needed a new video card because i had the no fishies in the lake syndrome and well the graphics were just really crappy, so i went out and bought a whole new computer and i got the nvidia GeForce 7900GS it worked great! Then we had a flood and lost everything including the computer. Now, I'm looking to buy another computer that is equally or more awesome and from the same place but they aren't offering the same video card and the one i'm thinking of getting is up on that list
Dual 768MB Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX
can anyone tell me if it's a good or bad idea to get that one?
Because basically it's the only thing this place is offering.
20  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / about holiday stuff on: March 26, 2007, 01:43:02 pm
i can't find my holiday stuff. i'm not sure exactly when it really went missing because i have uninstalled and reinstalled my game several times since i downloaded the holiday stuff pack. i backed up my downloads folder, my neighborhoods and all that stuff pretty much everything in the sims2 folder in my documents. i remeber 1 time using the ea dowloader which i had saved to an external hardrive (because i also got a brand new computer) and it worked the last time (which was a while ago) i had to reinstall everything. now it doesn't work at all and i can't find anything about it because i think it redownloads it from the internet. i remember my password and username and everything but i can't find it anymore...
if anyone could help me with this problem in anyway please let me know.
thank you!
21  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Quicksand? Sinking pets and more!!! on: March 05, 2007, 01:54:06 pm

it intially happened to me, that is a family I created with sims Pets and after I installed Seasons the animals appeared to be sunken in the ground.  It seemed to correct itself once I started playing.  I will add that I removed all custom content and started with a clean install when this happened.

I had this same thing happen, but I didn't take out my hacks or other custom content and it still went back to normal. Well, I did at first take out my hacks and custom content when I first installed seasons, but before playing or anything I put all my hacks and custom content back in.

It is exactly what I had when I installed Pets on my small comp. I played less than 5 minutes and all got frozen. Nothing got better afterwards, so the little one will be kept for office work.

well I'm going to see about getting a new video card tomorrow, but I don't know if that's why my neighborhood screen is freezing up on me, nor can I find out what video card/chip I have, but I tried boolProp UseShaders true to see if I could get my fish back in the fishtank which I just noticed were missing (because I read somewhere here that someone was having that same problem and they couldn't see the fish in the ponds either) and that didn't work it just made everything all yucky looking.

I have an IBM computer with windows xp, 200GB hardrive, 1024MB memory and intel celeron processor. that's all I know, unless someone can tell me how I can find out what video card/chip I have? I thought since I recently (just before the pets EP) had the 200GB hardrive put into my computer that I would be all set for a while with new expansion packs. I have all the other EP's as well and around 16000 files in my downloads folder. I don't have any other games installed on this computer and the only thing I download is Sims2 stuff.

I'm pretty crazy, I'll probably keep what I can in the game.
I think the problem I had with it freezing is a different story though. I still have to test it some more but I think it's just being really slow because I took out all m hacks and left all my other custom content in there and it did the same froze when I clicked on a house but after waiting about a minute or so it actually went to the family info and I was able to get into my house.
So, I'm not sure what exactly is going on there...maybe it has something to do with the graphics problem I'm having so I'm going to work on that first.

This is actually my first time posting here. So it's nice to meet everyone.
Anyways, I just got Seasons today and after backing up my files, like a good girl, and I messed around with the game a little not really much though as it is now 2am and i installed the game around 9pm-ish. I did notice that I, too have graphic problems, but that didn't really concern me at the time. I removed my whole downloads folder (which contains 16256 files, someone was bragging about their 4000-ish files somewhere) and went into the game I was looking for the stuff to build a greenhouse and was going to play around with stuff, after not being able to find the stuff for the greenhouse in build mode which is where I assumed it would be. I gave up and decided it was time to put my downloads back into the game to see if maybe by some miracle I wouldn't have a problem with the game and everything would work beautifully. Of course, not, but I still had to see how bad it could be.  So, this is what happened, I clicked on a house and the screen froze, Of course I tried this on more than one house waiting the 15-ish minutes it takes to load up my game each time just to have the screen freeze on me each time.

Obviously, I have a hack that doesn't agree with the new EP.
So, I guess tomorrow I will have to sort through all my hacks and find out what is causing the problem and with everything I have it could be more than one thing and probably is.
So, goodnight for now.
