View Full Version : Sims not Loading....

08-03-2005, 01:27 PM
I went and brought Sims Deluxe Edition with 3 expansion packs for my bro...and we installed it yesterday, and since i'm home early from tech i thought i'd have a play see whats the big deal about it...and it wont load....it gets to the screen where it says Sims Deluxe Edition and have a scrolling line across bottom saying what its loading etc...then within a blink of the eye...its gone....its not loading, it doesnt give a error....just gives up basically...

The computer far exceedds requirements...Winxp home, 512mb ram....video onboard 2.8ghz cpu....and its worked on a computer with win98, 64mb ram...so i cant work out why its not working on a computer that sims 2 can work on....

I uninstalled it and reinstalled....no change :(

Any Help Please :)

Have a look thru the games forum.
This is the faq

There is known problems with their copy protection too> Go to EAs support site and look up Troubleshooting CD problems, a whole lot of stuff there including a patch of some kind that disables safedisc.
