Question about EA - Electronic Arts The Sims Deluxe Edition for Windows

1 Answer

Not responding? i've bought sims 2 double deluxe, installed fine, showing no problems, the games loads fine and starts working fne but when creating a family (which is one of the main parts of game!) it states its loading then decides not to respond..checked manager and shows not responding so i had to end programme. this happens everytime i go to make a family. i have a feeling it may have something to do with the video card in my laptop, i have an ASUS X58L series. vista. the game is brand new, no scratches. other games have installed and playng fine. is it a faulty game or...?

If the game is brand new its not the game. the most likely reason this happens is because your computers graphics card is not sufficient, what is your graphics cards memory? the brand? model? if you do not know this, how old is your computer? when did you get it and when was the last time you updated your computer with new hardware?

SIMS 2 UNIVERSITY INSTALLED BUT NOT LOADING UP, NOTICED PEOPLE HAVING SIMILAR PROBLEMS. MY OTHER SIMS 2 GAMES ARE PC DVD ROM SIMS TWO UNIVERSITY I BOUGHT IS A PC CD ROM IS THAT THE PROBLEM WHY IT WONT...


I think university is the first or second expansion pack. I know there are issues if the expansions are not installed in order of their release. if you have say, seasons or freetime and then install university, it may not run correctly. You have to uninstall the packs or the game and re-install them in correct order. Yes, it's a big pain but I had to do it twice.
Install the SIMS2, or double deluxe whatever you have then follow this order with exception of say nightlife if you have have double deluxe because it comes with the original game.

The Sims 2" Expansion Pack Order
  • "The Sims 2 University"
  • "The Sims 2 Nightlife" included in double deluxe
  • "The Sims 2 Holiday Party Pack" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Open for Business"

  • "The Sims 2 Glamour Life" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Pets"
  • "The Sims 2 Happy Holiday" (A Stuff Pack)

I ininstalled sims2/double deluxe because I didn't want it because I got the sims2pets. but I found out I have to have the sims 2 double deluxe to install the sims2pets. When I enter the installation code...


Make sure there is no sims 2 content on your hard drive. if there are any EA folders on your comouter either in program files or in "my documents" delete them. Then try installing Double Deluxe again. Then you can install pets.
Pets is an expansion pack for the Sims 2 base game. Other expansion packs are University, Seasons, Free Time, Bon Voyage.Open for buisiness and Apartment Life...If you plan to get other expansion packs you should install them in order of their release to avoid future problems. Nightlife expansion is included with Double Deluxe.

A simple google search for sims 2 expansion packs will show you the correct order to install and descriptions of each pack and what they add to the game. Seasons lets your sims go fishing for example. They can cook the fish they catch, and also plant gardens, and experience the changing seasons from summer to winter.

The Sims Double Deluxe Won't load when I add the downloads folder


As long as you have your download file located in Documents/Ea Games/The Sims 2/Downloads (I already had this folder when I installed the game.) you should be fine.

Your might want to try taking out your Sim Blender, and try executing again. It may be causing the game to freeze before it loads all the way. I am currently having the same problems and I am looking for a solution.

Cd drive doesn't see sims 2 double deluxe


I tried the sims 2 game on another computer, which has vista home premium OS. The same problem occurred on that computer. I wonder if the game changed the registry and prevents the game from being reinstalled.
