Issues

  • CD Version
    • Installer launches a shockwave application of games for you to play while it is installing which doesn't work at all under Cedega. You will need to kill its process before install will complete.
    • Game process starts with Cedega crashing, many errors to console, and the game window black.
    • Patch fails with message that the game isn't installed properly.
  • DVD Version
    • Installer runs fine, but the progress meter always stays at 0 percent. The dialog that requests that you register the game may show up blank (ereg.exe). Killing it allows the installation to proceed.
    • Game reports DVD is missing in Win98 mode. Win2k or WinXP allow the game to detect the DVD, but the game dies after the splash screen.
    • The Sims 2 Body Shop blacks out the screen and displays a blank window, but does not get past that point.

Fixes

  • CD Version
    • Installation in Point2Play needs "Run directory" selected, and that gave CD unmounting problems. I ended up making images of CDs 2-4 (CD 1 is copy protected) and then mount -o loop the images over the top of each other. ~Koradji
  • DVD Version
    • If the installer hangs at a blank registration dialog, look for a wine process running "Ereg.exe" and kill that. The installation should continue.

Notes

  • Installation using Point2Play requires the "Run Directory" option.
  • In the DVD version, the shockwave games in the installer seem to work fine.

Description

The Sims 2 is the second generation of the hit The Sims series. It features a fully 3D game environment and a much improved game experience, with new objects, building tools, career paths, and more. Sims have families, children grow up and even age and die. All the while, the game keeps extensive records of each Sim's family tree, and a history of major events in their life.
