    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. Funny enough I had the same problem with Battlefield 2142, it was workign ne
    day and then 3 days later I would double click on teh icon, the mouse would
    change and then change back. I did alot of un-installing, rebooting, but
    couldn't get it to work.

    I then logged in under another user account, re-installed the game and it's
    worked fine so far since then.

    I'd try logging in under a different account (even if you have to create
    one) and then try it again.Also, just an OBTW, there is a vista.games group
    you can post to, since I don't know how many games people watch teh general
    forums

    A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
    Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?

    You still gotta read em before you know they're off-topic. Seems like the
    people who want to make comments on your sig win this one.
    (And maybe your sig is off-topic.)
