I couldn't find a Carls Guide for Sims 2 either. ModTheSims still has a pretty active Sims 2 community, I'd check over there.  flower

I think I have forgotten everything. Knew the game inside out back when, but now.....  shy

Had over 40000 CC items and over 150 mods in my game.

I am sure the Prima Guides can be picked up for next to nothing on ebay now. I probably should sell mine. If someone wants one, PM me.

I picked it up but it won't run for me, b***y windows 8! I can 't find an answer out there (it freezes on the loading screen) but if anybody knows of one please shout. Frustrating as I have most of Sims 2 on disc and was only missing a couple of SPs.  Crying or Very sad 

Thing is I wasn't really worried about it but now I know I can't run it I really want to. Forbidden fruit and all that! Wink

I had the same problem and I have windows 7. Here is what I learned.

Right click on the game icon and select properties. Select the Compatibility tab. Click the box beside Run this program in compatibility mode for and select Windows XP (Service Pack 2) from the drop down list. Click apply.

To start the game, right click on the game icon and select Run as administrator. Then go find something else to do for a couple of minutes. Mine took about 2 - 3 minutes and when I came back to the computer it had started.

I hope this works for you in Windows 8.

I may have almost all exp and stuff packs for Sims2 as well. I sounds to me like this free thing is full of problems, I just signed up for it, but I won't download. According to Nysha on mts I need to sign up to be able to keep using it.

I got it working! I ran the repair game from origin and then the check for updates. I already had it running as administrator. I then started it up and left it for longer and it eventually loaded up. Don't know if anything I did made any difference or I just wasn't patient enough the first few times.

I am now totally confused as I can't remember how to play any of it!!! scratch

Mine took F O R E V E R to load the first time. Looked like nothing was happening. Finally loaded then took another F O R E V E R to add the associated shopping, travel and university neighborhoods.

Help in on the way. MerryWiddow has been actively playing Sims 2 and is putting together a sort of FAQ with links on how to play.

Oh man, I'm tempted. I installed the origin version, but I know I'll have to add so much CC and default replacements to endure it. Sims 2 sims were so ugly out of the box. I made a lot of content for the game actually, but most of it is gone due to a nasty hacking incident (probably TSR) and several computer crashes. I really enjoyed it, but I don't know if I can deal with no shoe choices, body sliders or open world.

I think I'll just stick with sims 1 and 3 for now.

I am really enjoying this game. The animations feel much more realistic, imo. Or maybe it is just because they are different. I agree clay, the sims are unattractive but they are Sim 2 sims....at least that is how I am looking at it for now.
