PostSubject: How To Bypass the Now Disabled Sims 2 Launcher   Mon Aug 26, 2013 5:28 am

For those who plays the Sims 2 having problems launching your game, the solution is bypassing the launcher altogether now. EA recently had a "brainstorm" and decided to connect the launcher to the server at the new Sims 4 site, The Sims.Com.The problem with that is The Sims 2 Launcher only recognizes the server at the now deceased The Sims 2.Com, so unless EA decides to somehow send out a patch or make a patch available, there is no way the launcher will properly work and it will prevent the startup of your game. How many of ya'll remember the days before EA came up with that lousy launcher? It was so much easier. Creating a new start icon that goes around the launcher altogether is the answer so here goes:

Go to> My Computer>C:>Program Files (x86)>EA Games>The Sims 2>your startup EP/SP>EP/SP code.

Here is a step-by-step example below:
Spoiler:
 

It's very simple and starts your game fast!

No, the startup icon has nothing to do with the downloading and installation of your lots, hun. You've been having issues with your lots lately, and it's obvious you have some bad cc somewhere. If the tips members have given you on how to resolve the problem with your lots hasn't worked, then probably the best solution would be to scrap your Downloads folder and just start your downloads over, as Neff and I have both suggested.

bbdoll when you install your sims2 cc do you install via the sims2 pack directly or are you using the sims2 clean installer?

I am installing my cc's via the sims2 pack directly. Now everything is extremely blurry with no detail at all, and that just started yesterday afternoon. Was fine early more cuz I was taking pics to share. Came back and went into a lot and it's like everything defaulted to something from another planet. My colors and dull and faded looking. Some of my cc's have been removed and something else put in it's place.

My game is working off (2) maybe (3) Sims 2 files. When I look down, I got stuff going into a Public Folder! pacman cool No  scaredy  It's a mess, and all this started when all of this other issue started. groan  T

Ohhh, I think I've fixed the burry stuff. I changed my Detail settings to the Max. Much, Much better. I was looking at my folders. I think I must work and concentrate of the "Plublic Documents" now.
