Dusting it off

I haven't played this game in years. When I first got it, I remember fighting over the game for a week with my husband (boyfriend at the time). One game copy and one computer so we had to take turns. :D I grabbed Pirates & Nobles on sale a year or two ago but I don't think I played with it much. Watching the game install now with Pirates & Nobles in the download queue. Please share any screenshots that you have. I would love to see them. I will post mine when I find the time to play.

    I'm dusting mine off as well. I just bought Pirates and Nobles on sale for like $5 the other day, and I have yet to play it. So this should be fun

    Okay well here's the scoop. I installed Pirates and Nobles, it made me update my game, which ended up making it not work at ALL :( I uninstalled everything and just installed the base game again, and it works, albeit only through Origin, and I can't install Pirates and Nobles because it will make me update.

    Sorry, just making sure that I understand. You have the game installed through Origin and it still breaks if you try to install the pack? I installed both digitally so I'm not sure what the problem could be. Do you have Windows 7, 8, or 8.1? 10?

    The first time I installed with the disc, and when I added the expansion, it broke. Since then I went the Origin route, and have the base game working again (albeit a pop up does come up saying I have an unrecognized video card.) I got the digital copy of Pirates and now I'm debating if I want to download it or not. Still kind of scared it might break my game again.

    I might be fine now that I'm doing it digitally. It just seems like 8.1 is ridiculously stubborn with a lot of games unless they're brand new

    Ah, yes after Windows 8.1 the disc version kind of broke. I don't know the exact issues I just know that EA had to patch it. The game works fine through Origin (digital). I have Windows 8.1 and I installed both through Origin. Everything works great.

    Awesome. Maybe I will try to install the expansion then too through Origin.

    It's kind of funny, I just recently dusted mine off as well and enjoying it surprisingly well...still dreaming for a Medieval version of the sims, though, (God that would be so freaking awesome!) lol. It is a very pretty game...I'll take some screenshots for you and post them for you.

    Once you install pirates and nobles there is an icon for it, but you dont use that icon to play it. If you are using the pirates and nobles icon to try and start the game it doesnt work. Its stupid, but the game still runs with the expansion with the base game.

    Have any of you tried to install and run the game after updating to Windows 10?

    i installed it two days ago under win10, it works as digital copy via origin with pirates EP
    besides of the blue eyes bug it works without problems now

    i tried for the first time to conceive a child in sims medieval,
    since i started the game new, so the first child born is a king's daughter :smile:

    unfortunately after i changed the active sim to the smith, the child was gone & the queen doesn't dwell in the palace as well,
    yeah, sims medieval
    at least they seem to be married still :tongue:

    but overall, this game is so pretty, medieval's CAS is the most detailed
    & i really like how they talk in this game
    this game had potential too ...


    i won't be participating in the forums & the gallery anymore - thanks EA

    Wonderful, thanks for the answer. I'll be looking forward to playing this wonderful game again. <3 Love it!

    TSM sims are the best looking ones in the series, just my opinion :p

    Nice screenshots also :)

    thank you :smile:

    yeah, those sims look very distinct & characteristic without being just ugly & some are plainly beautiful
    it's a pity that TS3's CAS never was updated to that state
    eg TSM skin doesn't have that plasticky glare of TS3
    & the random sim generator of TSM is way better than TS3's ever was

    So much my opinion too. I created Hansi Hinterseer from Switzerland as one of my bards, and he looks just gordious, doesn't he?

    That's what I am looking for, too. I don't want to buy the combined packs from Origin since I already have TSM since day one. I never got the EP because the site was dying and I went on to buy more stuff or TS3 at the time. I love this game as well. Dusted mine off sometime this past month and haven't stopped playing just like before. lol But need new quests!

    Your queen is very lovely and sweet in that young and tender way. So cute Piper!

    I had really enjoyed the game at the time, but at some point the save somehow deleted itself and I hadn't play it since. I haven't tried it on my new computer, so I've been thinking of dusting it off and giving it a go again (this time making a backup though if I do!)

    I had bought pirate expansion on sale, never even used it yet. :(

    I was so crazy addicted to this game. I wonder if they'll ever do anything like it again.

    omg, I was playing this weekend (again) and I was sitting there staring at the mill while my Sim was busy. Wishing for a Miller and a Seamtress like I did five years ago. lol I really hoped they would continue and add more 'hero' professions. So many people had so many good ideas back then. I would buy a new EP right now if it came with new heroes and a few new quests updates. They could even update the existing ones for a different outcome with new heroes added. Bummer, now I'm depressed.

    ETA: Even let us play the executioner. LOL I always wanted to see inside that little hut. :p
