What Happened?

Do you use a registry cleaner like System Mechanic?  It removes important files from the registry because they aren't actually in the Sims Ultimate folders...not sure why but every time I run the registry cleaner it removes them.

 

There are the only registry problems it ever finds for me and I don't let it fix them anymore.  Hope this is helpful.  I even tried creating files by those names as a text file but still named them .exe and it still removed the registry info.

So yeah, I know I'm supposed to be in bed :1doh1:but I cannot get Sims 2 to run in windowed mode. I add the *space*-w and the game will not resize at all. I need my start menu to show so I can print screen what I need and then access my paint program.

The other thing, when I re-downloaded and installed, I had two of every neighbourhood. :scare3: Something is just not right and I don't know what it is.  :sleepy3:

Rename your folder in your documents the one that is under EA Games:  The Sims™ 2 Ultimate Collection

 

What it did was regenerated a new game.  You are going to want several folders to copy back over to your The Sims™ 2 Ultimate Collection folder.  Like you Downloads, collections,  saved sims and maybe a few others.

 

After you rename the The Sims™ 2 Ultimate Collection folder open your game and let it recreate a new game folder then copy over the aforementioned folders.  That should fix everything.  If not let me know.....but please get some rest.

I forgot 

 

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection\Fun with Pets\SP9\TSBin\Sims2EP9.exe" -W

 

is what I have under my Sims 2 shortcut on my desktop and I start the game from that icon.

I tried the -w and that won't work on this version of whatever.....😡 As for the original neighbourhoods, I never once played them and didn't have them when I was playing.

 

I did learn something, I can still *Print Screen* from my laptop. then I just tap the window button on my keyboard and the game disappears but I can access my paint program. Then all I have to do to get the game back is tap that key again.

 

I will go into my files and take a couple of pictures and show you what I have, it's not what you have.
