I lost my game CD for the sims 3. and i need to either download a new one. but i dont want to go out and buy it again. is there anything i can do???


Hi. You don't have to buy the game again if you are able to register your game to EA you can download the sims 3 online through ea download manager. Do you have the EA download manager installed in your computer? If not, download it first here when it's done sign in to your account and you will be able to get the game that you have registered.
Hope this helps your problem. Have a good day!

I just bought the Sims 2 Double Deluxe and it won't let me play.


Double Deluxe is the first disc, you don't need any other disc. It should install.

EA download manager says I am offline?


I Fixed this poblem!!!

I had the exact same problem, up until 3 minutes ago. I deleted my EADM by going to control panel-program and features, then I went to EA download Manager, double clicked it, and uninstalled it form there. After I did this I had to exit all the applications on my computer. Then I went to the Internet and typed in EA Download Manager in my search box and found a link " ea-link.en.softonic.com/ "

(ts all green now, Sorry)

I redownloaded the EA Download Manager (for ignorant people like myself, I saved it to my Desktop, when it finished I then opened it, and I went and did all the steps it wanted me to do, until I got an Adobe Reader tab on top of my EA screen, and it wanted me to install something else. I did, then went back to finish downloading the manager. After I finished, I didn't have the disabled internet thing on my old manager did... I hope this helped, and I am sorry for it being so long.

The Sims 2 Freetime or The Sims 2 Apartment Life Wont Launch When Installed. After I Uninstall Them I Am Allowed To Play With Seasons. IVe Previously Played Freetime Before But Now It Just Wont Launch....


Make sure you have the original The Sims 2 game, Seasons,Freetime and Apartment Life are just expansion packs to the Original Game. Without the original game the expansions won't work.

If that's not the problem, then make sure they are installed correctly. If you used download m, most likely theyanagerare corrupted.


(Plus just as an extra question, why were you trying to play The Sims 2 a day before The Sims 3 came out, I couldn't sleep.)
