Question about EA - Electronic Arts Sims: Complete Collection for Windows

2 Answers

Stuck on loading

We are running this on windows vista, and when we go into the neighbourhood the expansion packs begin to load, but they keep doing this in a loop and then the program freezes. We left it to see if it resolved itself, but it was doing this for nearly an hour until we closed it down using task manager. Any ideas?

    Tried to look for a patch or updates but the general concensus is that there isn't any

    I'm trying to find out how to stop that, too! I even tried uninstalling it but when I reinstalled, it just went right back to where I'd left it. There must have been a glitch or something at the beginning of the game when I first started it.

    Where is that stinkin' answer?

    Then it seems you dont have much of a choice.Either you change the OS for the games sake or wait patiently because there is a whole community out there with the same problem and some one will sure come up with a solution.

Lost disc 1 for superstar in Expansion Pack Volume 3


Usually you play the sims with expansions by using the game disk of the last expansion you installed. Superstar definitely is supposed to have 2 disks and disk 1 is probably the one you need. I know eBay has several full copies for sale under $5 including shipping. Amazon does too.

Sims 2 installation


You must install the expansion packs in a semi-fluid order. That is, there was an order they were released and for best results, you should install them in the same order.

http://compsimgames.about.com/od/expansionpacks/qt/sims2_exporder.htm

The above site is the order of the expansions. Keep in mind, it starts at the top and goes down (oldest at top, newest at bottom). You must use the latest most expansion pack's disc to play. That means, if the last expansion pack you have is "Seasons", you will need to use that disc to play the game.

Due to copyright laws, I'll be unable to assist you in how to play the game without the need of the discs but in essence, the above information will at least get the game installed with the expansions in the proper order. You and your friend may just be unable to play the game at the same time.

The sims complete collection won't


I had the same problem, when I installed the sims on my new lap top (with vista) it just kept repeating the 'loading the expansion packs' thing. I uninstalled it and re-installed it, and it solved that problem. HOWEVER, I now have a new problem, it gets stuck in transit to any place, so you may fix that problem with the uninstalling and re-installing-but I don't know what the new problem might be!

I cannot load,tales of the sword coast. It just keeps coming up 5


Anti-Virus check it and see if that works. Re-install it and see if that works.

If that doesnt work...
Try getting a new disk pack for it. there may be a corrupt file or script on one of those discs.
