 huhOMG!! None of my downloads, ie, skins/meshes/cc are showing. I went to Warlokk's and d/l the CPU skins/meshes and followed all links from clothes and other skins that I wanted to d/l and then proceeded to d/l them. I made my Downloads file in the correct place and put them there. I then installed, unzipped, or used the .rar program to install them. Still I cannot figure out why they arent showing. Any help or advice is welcomed and appreciated. Thanks in advance. huh

Did you enable downloads ingame after installing, and restart the game afterward?

Yes I did. I even removed all mods/skins/meshes redownloaded them and reinstalled them. I added all my games in case the items I was after needed a different EP. After I installed ALL EPs I then redownloaded and reinstalled the items. Nothing has changed.

That has happened to me before. Especially after installing a new expansion and/or re installing the game completely.

My problem was solved by re downloading and installing Sims2Pack Installer and CEP.

You could give that a shot to see if it helps you as well.

@ ancienthighway the path is:C:\Documents and Settings\HP_Administrator\My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\DownLoads
@ cindra I installed both

There isnt any change yet, so Ill read and try again.

Well some of the items are showing up ingame. I guess my next chore is to take them all out and add them one by one so I can figure out which ones arent and why,lol.

Try Downloads instead of DownLoads. The game probably isn't reading the folder name since it's mis-spelled.

There is a red cross with the word Remove next to it right next to the Modify option on the post.

Also, sometimes deleting your thumbnails folder can help, believe it or not.
