Yakov, I followed the steps in which locating the packages. I located them in Clean installer and moved them into a folder to check them out in SimPe. I right clicked and opened them except when I open them, the packages show up empty or I get an error message. The attachment below shows the files which I do think are several of them. Am I doing somthing wrong, because I want to look inside them before I delete them.

Also I have BV installed on one comp, the ones I found posted below is the computer without BV.

can you ZIP/RAR one of them and post it here?  I will try opening the file on my system to see if it is the usual culprit or a skintone.

Hi again, DecoraChroi.  I just looked at the file in SimPE and sadly yes - all the files with a size:

   6.64 MB (6,970,232 bytes)

are the known bad file. I recommend you delete them.

Funny how the file size of the sim can be deceptive, huh? I had that another couple of times while installing prizes - just how is that being done? :oogle: Is our own copy of the file sneaking into our packs when we open them or something?

yes - Body Shop seems to randomly slap this monkey into any sims2pack.  I believe it is a bug in BV's version of Body Shop, but I can't be completely certain.

Can the junk files have other charactorists? I found many files that were just numbers and letters with the sufix of _00##.  BTW thanks for this thread.

Just the file size of 6.* MB, I think, that's what you need to check for.

Hmmm?, I wonder what those *Wacky Programmers at EA will do next for our entertainment in these cold winter nights!. Wink

Thanks for the heads-up!... Smiley

Well, I thought "before I spend hours running Clean Installer on my d/l's folder, I'll just download the patch for BV."  What a joke!  It didn't fix it!  Interesting since that's what EA told you do BBB, huh?  I've got the continous paperboy loop, the never leaving visitors, and the major lag going on in my game and I just installed it.  I haven't even had a chance to play the game.  Unfortunately, I didn't see these posts until after the fact.  Thanks for sharing your knowledge on how to fix this BBB.  Hopefully I'll be able to enjoy my game again.

BeachSiren, for the endless paperboy loop, update your Inteenimater. Others have had it and downloading the BV version for InTeen fixed it Smiley

I only have one file with name "b18484e15a91c5a039d61f635d15d7c3.package". o_O

Are there supposed to be any junk files with other name?


annnnddd, I checked all of my files that has no specific type and none of them are in 6,** MB size. But I'm using The Compressorizer so....maybe it has altered the size?

After reading this,I just want to apologise to this community for my positivness towards EA games and Maxis.I was just happy for being able to play a pc game I love so much!Never played a pc game before.
But yes,it's right,EA  sucks!
Thank you BBB for all your trouble and for sharing this info.
Unfortunately my knowledge about computers is extremely limited,so I hope it's inough to check the D/Ls with the clean installer and delete series of numbers heavier than 6 MBs,Im afraid for the simPE thing,I have no mechanical points,lol.
Regarding the patches,I had them installed up to BV but they never do anything for me so I just deleted them.
I don't think EA cares about our efforts to play this game. I had to buy a new computer to play all those EPs,and the coming ones and - hopefully - sims3,and I'm not that rich at all,lol.
Thanks again,Beos.
