1  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Reinstall problem on: October 23, 2010, 12:05:30 pm
I reinstalled The Sims 2, but I can't find my EP1 (Uni) CDs.

So, this is what happens:
- reinstall The Sims 2 basic set (4 CDs)
- reinstall The SIms 2 EP5 (Pets) (1 DVD, requires the basic CD 4)

Now, when the game begins, it tells me that I uninstalled EP1 (Uni), so that if I play the game will obliterate the Universities and force all Young Adults to Adults.

So, I guess either I have to dig where I put my EP1 Uni CD (my house is a mess) or try to find a way to hack the game.

Is there any intelligent alternative solution? The computer HD (in a backup directory) has all the information (except registry data) that I used 6 months ago when I played EP5 (Pets) with EP1 (Uni).
2  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Directx 9.0c (again) on: October 19, 2010, 04:45:05 am
After about half an year without The Sims 2 because Windows XP crashed,
I could reinstall Windows and try to play The Sims 2. I got this error:

  Failed to find any DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapters in this system!
  Please make sure you have a DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapter
  and have installed the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer. The
  application will now terminate.

Is there any way to bypass this error, or I must try to figure out how do
to whatever this message is trying to tell me to do?

Last time I tried to fix this error was probably what caused Windows XP
to crash.

PS: I just thought it would be meaningless to start a new thread with the same subject as a previous thread.
3  Retired Creators / Fashionmodel / Black cross-top, white shorts for the FM on: August 18, 2009, 06:09:04 am
I wasn't sure if I should post this, because it's not perfect (there's a small mismatch). But since there are so few recent uploads, it will surely get to the top 10...

It's a black cross top with a white shorts, for the Fashion Model

Technical description:
 
Age = Adult or Young Adult
Gender = Female
Category = Casual or Formal
Credits = the sandals were inspired (= taken and modified) on Alexasrosa's Heracles and Hebe. The white shorts come from two maxis clothes: the alpha is a maxis shorts, the texture and normalmap are a maxis white pants.
Copyright = all the rest is mine. Feel free to do anything with it: copy, recolour, change size, etc.

If anyone is interested, there's another version with a smaller cross-top; probably this other version should go to the adult mirror site.

PS: are those images too dark?

There are a few other Queen Gorgo/Queen Margo outfits, but I am not sure if they will come here or in the adult mirror. Just in case I am nigh to crossing the line, someone please tell me and I will move from here to there.

7  Welcome to insimenator.org / Issues & Suggestions / Sims2Wiki on: April 12, 2009, 09:45:18 am
Most links from The Sims Wiki to both Insim and ISA are broken - probably because they still point to the extinct site.

Maybe it's time to get there and fix those broken links!

Just a suggestion for those having nothing better to do on Easter Sunday after intoxicating oneself with too much theobromine.

9  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Technical question: what does Pets need? on: February 04, 2009, 07:57:30 pm
Can I install Pets when I have only the basic set and EP1 (University), or do I have to buy all things between University and Pets (Nightlife, etc)?
10  Retired Creators / Fashionmodel / Unbuttoning the button shirt with Jeans short - Fashion Model on: October 11, 2008, 11:01:38 am
A buttoned shirt for the Fashion Model, with Jeans short. Six buttons are closed, then she opens them, and removes the shirt. Then she removes the shorts and shoes. She's wearing a bikini - this is not a strip tease!



The full set is this (I didn't create _all_ interpolations!). The shorts with bikini top and the bikini are added for the sake of completeness.

A buttoned shirt for the Fashion Model, with Jeans short. Four (from a total of six) buttons are open - but there's nothing sexy in this outfit.

12  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Women / Button Shirt - Sleepwear for Fashion Model on: September 28, 2008, 11:21:42 am
I hope this is not too sexy for this site...

Here's a buttoned shirt for the Fashion Model.



Technical description:

Age = Adult or Young Adult
Gender = Female
Category = Sleepwear

BTW, I think this recolour should be in the Fashion Model area. My mistake...
13  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Women / Sailor Mars on: June 20, 2008, 06:06:55 pm
Sailor Mars, for Adult/Young Adult, and for Casual, Formal and Gymwear categories.




This is a recolour of RoseSims's Sailor Moon.

The original Sailor Moon (with the mesh) can be found at  http://www.rosesims2.net/ (RoseSims) in the Downloads/Clothes section. Here is one Sim wearing the Sailor Moon

14  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Misc. Mods and Careers / Detect packages that were created with the old version of Pets EP Body Shop on: January 21, 2007, 01:28:53 pm
I wrote a script in R that can detect which packages were created with the old (and wrong) version of the Pets EP Body Shop.

Thanks to Delphy (that guided me in the labirinth of the DBPF format) and dmchess (for his perl code).

The source code can be found in the Sims2 Wiki project, at http://www.sims2wiki.info/wiki.php?title=Detect_Pets_Body_Shop_bug/Source_Code
15  Simmers' Paradise / Content Creation & Recoloring Help / Index of Recolors with Picture and Filename on: January 07, 2007, 09:35:23 pm
Is there any tool that lists _all_ recolors, with picture and filename?

Whenever I want to hack a file using SimPe (for example, changing a recolor that is for adult only to adult or YA, or changing a recolor that is listed as an undie to a sleepwear), I have to _guess_ the filename based on the date I downloaded it, because there's no (AFAIK) way to link the image to the filename.

In case there isn't, which is the package that the game uses to keep this information?
