PostSubject: Chess Legend Problem   Mon Jul 23, 2012 5:16 pm

I have a sim that wants to be a chess legend. He invites ranked players over and nobody comes. I read a few threads that others have had this problem. One suggestion was to invite the other person to a public place. My sim cannot do that as he does not know the other person and so that person is not in his phone list.

I really do not want to use know everyone on the mailbox. Has anyone gotten the chess legend LTW and how did you do it? Is there a way to use Master Controller perhaps to make potential chess players friends so they will come over?

I finally got the person over to the house. Used resetsim on the OP to be sure not stuck somewhere and then MC to invite over. I will be curious to see what happens with the next opponent. Maybe this sim was just stuck somewhere. Shall see.

Now, Vince just needs to win the game. Smile

Hi Daisy See if you have the option on your phone to call The Next Chess Legend or Master. I don't remember just what it is. I'm just opening my game and I'll see what it is. Wink

I've read there are problems sometimes if the next ranked player is a paparazzi.

Searching: Some of these may seem obvious and you may have already tried them but here goes.
Older thread on EA forum
http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/54106.page
Suggestion was to use house phone instead of the cellphone to invite a Ranked Chess player.
It seem this may reset the options to invite them by cellphone.
Another point in that thread was once they are invited to your home lot they need to be greeted and invited in before they can be challenged.

Thank you for all the suggestions. I am getting them over slowly but it is difficult. I have only invited them with the cell phones. One came and there was no option to invite her in, only a stop doing that option. I finally lured her in by knocking down a wall! Once I put the chess table outside and as the OP was a vamp she left halfway through the game! One vamp who came, almost all who are coming are vamps, would never leave and I had to reset her to get her to go! Another would not play chess but slept in the lounger by the pool!

I had to chase one moving the chess table to the sim!

Something must be amiss about this part of the game.

hmm

Had to take down the wall to get this character into the house to play. Laughing
My sims is not the criminal, even though there is a conwoman in the family now. eeek Laughing

I'm glad to see you are finding creative ways to solve the problem. I had my Sim also do part of the chess master challenge in China. Just a thought.

I wondered about that! I may send him there for a few matches. Smile

Thank you for that suggestion.

Hooray! He made it as a Chess Legend! Now I have someone who wants to be a Master Martial Arts person. That will be interesting to see if a regular/custom hood generates opponents or whether she will have to go to China to do all/most of it.

I have completed that one with a couple of my Sims.
I just had them practice on the MA Dummy and Board Breaker until Level 10.
The option to Spar should come up on the menu with any Sim that had any MA skill.

I believe you will have to get all your opponents in China. I bought the reward that allows a longer stay. I think it's called the preferred traveler. I had a routine going. Had my Sim sleeping at the Academy. Wake up, eat morsel, toilet, shower, mediate, call opponent, spar with opponent until win, play chess, socialize or read then sleep. Repeat. Laughing Martial Arts is fun to watch. I found myself on the edge of my seat sometimes hoping for a win. Big Grin Oh and don't forget to have a radio going with their favourite music and have the Chinese incense burner going in the same room.

I have had a few sims that maxed the skill but nobody had the LTW so this will be a first for me. I had a couple that stayed in China a lot to max the skill and then beat Dong Huo, whatever his name was in the tomb.

I don't pay enough attention to things like favorite music, colors, etc. and really need to do that. That sounds like it will be fun to use the incense, the music, and see it.

I did put a training dummy in the gym as my criminal needed a martial arts point. I hope some of the townspeople use it a lot.

One thing I thought was interesting was that one of the chess opponents on the list was another member of the household. Maybe I will try to run 2 sims up the skill and see how often the LTW one gets the other one as the challenge.

Good ideas, everyone. Thanks!
