Question about Aspyr The Sims Expansion: House Party (Mac)

1 Answer

Keeps quitting unexpectedly

I have the Sims for mac and all seven of the expansion packs on one CD. It has been working fine for about two months but this morning I tried starting it and it immediately (before even pulling up the program) said that it had "quit unexpectedly). I thought there was a problem with the CD so I took it out and cleaned it, but it didn't help. Then I tried starting it without the CD. Normally it would say that I must insert the disc before playing, but it gave me the same thing-it "quit unexpectedly"

Is the game a pirated copy? If so and the game recieves updates, you downloaded a patch from them that blocks a pirated copy of their game.

If not pirated, then you can try uninstalling and reinstalling. This is good if you think the program is corrupt on the computer.

To me it sounds like it got corrupt and a file is missing and that's why in won't run.

Anyways, hope this helps and good luck.

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 Family Fun" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Glamour Life" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Pets"
  • "The Sims 2 Happy Holiday" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Seasons"
  • "The Sims 2 Celebration" (A Stuff Pack) also in double deluxe
  • "The Sims 2 H&M" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Bon Voyage"
  • "The Sims 2 Teen Style" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Free Time"
  • "The Sims 2 Kitchen and Bath Interior Design" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The SIms 2 Ikea Home" (A Stuff Pack)

  • "The Sims 2 Open for Business"
  • "The Sims 2 Family Fun" (A Stuff Pack)

  • "The Sims 2 Pets"
  • "The Sims 2 Happy Holiday" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Seasons"
  • "The Sims 2 H&M" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Bon Voyage"
  • "The Sims 2 Teen Style" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Free Time"

  • "The SIms 2 Ikea Home" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Apartment Life"
  • "The Sims 2 Mansion and Garden" (A Stuff Pack)
your problem may be a graphics card issue. Did it work with the expansion packs or start problems when you installed the expansions?

maybe this link will be helpful if the above does not work.

Sims and sims 2 on external hard drive?


It works great, I had to do the same thing. All you have to do is save it to the external drive. yes all the programs and expansions need to be on the external drive.

When it asks you if you want to put it on the C:/programs/simms as it always does, just change the "C" to what ever drive your external drive is. do this with each game.

You will me living like a simm in no time. Let me know how you did..
