After I installed Apartment Life, any lot that was created before EP8 goes into an infinite loop unless I turn testingcheats on and delete the phone line. When I build a new lot from scratch I do have this issue. I think it has something to do with saved data. Answering phones also resets the sim, and I can not "manage groups" anymore, it only takes me straight to the call sim options.

Anyone else have this annoying issue? What was your solution?

It sounds like you are using a phone hack that isn't compatible with AL.

I don't remember downloading phone hacks. I used Clean Installer to search for hacks, and none apply to the phone line. I did see a few labeled as "careers" and with a hyphen in their name description. I figured these were the culprit, but no luck.

If you can locate the latest error log located in the folder My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Logs & attach it to you reply I may be able to help you. It will have a name like "ObjectError_E001_t5527.txt"

Can one find the file name of the culprit in the error logs? I've wondering about this possibility for a while.

Thanks Squinge.

For some reason Pescado's phone hack was named in my downloads folder as:

d1cb0b87b2e68b6d11643cefaa10e076_0001

It must have come with a house I downloaded. I think you should put this file name in a sticky so that others can find it. Phoneline errors seem to be a very common issue with Apartment Life.

The file name may be different use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer to check or move those 2 files to your desktop & see if the problem goes away.

I opened it in simpe, and it was the phone line controller. so i closed simpe, and just right clicked it and selected delete. was that right? was i supposed to do it someother way? its still in my recylce bin, so i could restore it if i needed too.
