    i resently found a old copy of the sims and i wanted to show my GF how much
    better it is for the pc than the ps2.
    When i instal the sims it works fine and no problems, i run the game when
    i'm done, that when i go play it the second time it starts to load then
    crashes and goes back to the desktop.
    I know it's a long shot but does anyone know how to fix it?

    thanks

  2. Erin, I sims2 games and I had to get the patches for all of the games. I am
    not sure which version of sims you have, but if you have sims2 go to
    http://thesims2.ea.com, and then to help for the patches. I hope this will
    help.

    I also installed it ok but it won't work even trying in in XP mode. So I
    would also like someone to give me some advice on this. (should it be Win98
    mode even?

    I can load and get the neighbourhood screens ok and can access the houses
    etc. but I create Sims and try to place them but they then disappear
    entirely.

    Is the problem that the "My Documents" folder is no longer named that in
    Vista and all the connections and folders are misdirected?

    They seemed to be in some type of "roaming" folder, not the usual ones I am
    used to.
