    Hey guys! This thread was super helpful for me in getting Sims 2 UC to work on my laptop, but after I play for about 4ish hours the game crashes on me. It's happened on different lots, different families, but seems to be after a few hours of playing. I've never had this issue before so I don't know what could be causing it. I'm on Windows 10, if that has anything to do with anything. Any help is appreciated!

    Hi!

    I installed The Sims 2 Ultimate collection on a Windows 10 64-bit system. The game refuses to start, and the mouse and keyboard stop responding to the invitations. I've tried compatibility window in Windows XP and Windows 7 settings, but does not help. Does this work in the latest version of Windows 10?

    I tried to edit GraphicRules.sgr file and install 4 GB patch but not working.

    Yall know how old this thread is? Lol. With the game closed, go to Documents> EA Games > Sims 2 Ultimate Collection and you should see two files, Accessory.cache and Groups.cache. Delete them both, then reload the game. If it works, Go back to the two new files and right click, go to properties, and check read only for both files. The biggest problem with the sims 2 is its absolutely packed with the potential for corruption without you knowing it, it's possible your caches are corrupted.

    Have you just installed and it hasn't run at all or has it run in the past and now it's not?

    Ah I knew it was old but people still seemed to be posting so I figured I'd try anyway 😅 thanks for the help though, I'll do that and hopefully it works!

    When I installed this game and start. If i change the resolution to full hd, the game will not start at all. Default Resolution will start, but very slowly even if the initial startup is done. Computer is modern and custom.
