No sure what you mean when you say you can't do links. You should be able to copy the link by highlighting the link ext with your mouse, then briefly hold down the "Ctrl" and "C" keys on your keyboard at the same time. Then you open a new window in your browser and paste into the address bar at the top by briefly holding down the "Ctrl" and "V" buttons at the same time. Then hit the "Enter" key to take you to the web page.
Or just look up my name under Friends in the Sims 3 Exchange to visit my studio where you will find the replacement file. Good luck
won't let me can't do links i can't follow them i get lost i went in2 ur studio do re download them v2 skilled version it's still doin the same the characters r there no thumnails still don't know who am controllin what am i doing wrong please help
Lou can you first delete the older versions already installed... do this from the launcher as well as all the copies in your library to be sure all the old files are removed.
When all the old files are deleted, then re-download from the Exchange. The V2 should not be giving you any problems so getting rid of all the old files first is the only thing I can think of. Good luck!
I don't know what else to try other than you download the original files I created in CAS. They will have NO SKILLS however since no mods will be used you should have no future problems. I will let you know once the new file is uploaded.
i've downloaded them scs but they aint turned up family bin via the game i've downloaded them n installed them but they aint there got rid of the old version but no sign of the new version sorry 2 cause u hassel
Have you tried cleaning up your cache files? These are temporary files saved by the same to make loading certain info faster. The game will make fresh copies if you delete them. They can be found in the Sims 3 documents folder. Here are the ones I delete occasionally to refresh my game:
I've asked my team to check and they do see both files. Does a box pop up saying it was actually installed after that Lou? I've had problems with using that option in the past. Can you try using 'save file' instead then double-clicking the file to install. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Sounds like a game or computer memory problem Lou.
When you open your downloads, do you see any copies of the O'Donnel family file there?

You said a while ago that you had to reinstall the game completely. I can't remember why you did this.
Did you have bad CC? If so, perhaps double-check your Packages folder and installed items to ensure you have no unwanted CC files still remaining? Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages
Can you try downloading and installing another household from the Exchange and see if it works? Rox has created other households that would be safe as well. Search for a friend to get her studio... romagi1
Lou, I was thinking perhaps nothing needs fixing... have you tried just waiting for the game to fully load? If the start button is greyed out it means your game is loading everything it needs. Maybe just wait it out until the start button appears.
