Okay... I know this must have been answered 1000's of times over since EA dropped support for TS2, but I recently decided to return for some nostalgic gameplay.
How do you install TS2 without support from EA? EA recognizes I own the rights to the game because it's available for me to download from Origin, but when I go to install TS2 Store Edition [tried downloading the install file into a
\folder] it tells me, "This product requires an installed copy of TS2. Please install TS2 before installing this product." What???
If I can get past this hurdle, I'll face another one: I have all the expansion packs and stuff packs... How can I install them when the original CD's required online verification that is no longer supported?
