1  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / game not loading on: June 27, 2007, 12:12:40 am
I had an issue this weekend and I was wondering if someone could clarify something for me.
I had downloaded some new content last week (a lot of new content actually but only furniture, clothes and hair) and after I placed it in the downloads folder my game wouldn't load.
I'm wondering if there is a limit to the size of the dowload folder.
I realize that any limit, if it exists, would relate directly to the cpu stats but my computer's a healthy size and speed with 2gb of ram so I've never had much problem with loading the game.  Some lots I've over decorated are slow loading and in game, but this weekend I'd start the game and after 40 minutes (no game play, it never got that far) it would just quit loading without any kind of error message.  I checked all the error logs and found nothing unusual (I've been getting sound instance errors for ages).  So, I went through and pain stakingly removed cc that I haven't used in ages reducing the dl folder from 12gb to 9gb.  I tested things many different ways, hack conflict detection, removed dups using the DDO and even restored to an old back up through SimPE which didn't change a thing.
I loaded the game once without the downloads folder and it ran beautifully (still got the "could not find sound instance errors" so I think that's EP related).  None of the cc I had downloaded during the week contained hacks of any kind.  Now that my dl folder has been trimmed the game loads but I fear I will have to give up my download addiction cold turkey.:snorting:  Can anyone tell me if they've experienced a similar problem and if they found a different solution?
I apologize in advance if I have once again posted this thread in the wrong place but general help seemed the right choice.
2  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Game time - Seasons on: May 01, 2007, 09:18:14 pm
I've noticed while playing Seasons that the game time passes way too quickly while the Sims are awake but when the whole house is sleeping (no pets, just three Sims) the arrow for fastest time (ffw) is glowing green while the game time ticks away as slowly as if the house were awake in an earlier EP.  Essentially, the clock moves slower while they are sleeping than when they are awake.  Has anyone else experienced this and if so, is there a hack or mod out there to fix it?  Possibly important note, I have only played in winter so far and it was snowing at the time I caught this.  The snow was random not generated by the award object.
