ok, i know that there are about 5000 topics on bodyshop problems, but now i have one. body shop barely loads up, and i get that "application has failed, yada yada yada" message and it goes bye-bye. the last time i used bodyshop was a week ago, and it was fine, now it just does what i just said it does. i tried reorganizing my downloads, checking if i downloaded two default replacements, even tried opening it without CC. and it doesn't even work without CC! it's been like this for three days and i'm really getting sick of it all! i even tried to open the game itself with all the CC i have and it works fine! WTF

i have the double deluxe, university, pets, seasons, and AL and the last time i downloaded was Monday. i looked over those recent downloads about ten times the past three days and they're alright. please help, i'm at the breaking point in which i need to uninstall AL.

uh...correction:
now that game's f***ed up. i tried playing just a few minutes ago, and now it won't go past two squares when loading neighborhoods. what else is there for it screw up!? GAH3

Strandard first steps:

!) Make sure you are trying to open the Bodyshop which is allied with the most recently released EP.

2) Go into My Documents--EA Games--The Sims 2 folder and delete the following files (they may or may not all be there - it depends on what you have previously opened, run and done with the game and/or Bodyshop):

groups.cache
cigen.package
accessory.cache
Content Registry

This is perfectly safe. The game and/or Bodyshop will auto-create and build fresh versions of those files if they are needed. Those files can easily become bloated and/or corrupted, so periodically deleting them is a Good Thing.

After deleting those files, see if your problems go away.

i tried those, and they didn't help at all. so unfortunately, i had to reinstall everything, argh! and after testing each of my recent downloads individually, i found out it was just the game being a little wacky. Blink don't know why, it just was.
