  • This is for SimGuru BGY's sake: Time of this report: 11/13/2009, 18:40:08 Machine name: HOME-C3B6C8EF24 Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 3 (2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.090804-1435) Language: English (Regional Setting: …
  • I seem to be unable to contact EA. The phone # they gave in the back of the booklet included in the game didn't give any help. The recording just said to go to online help. The URL they gave (help.ea.com/check) is faulty at best. It is non existent.…
  • There's still one other problem; I can't even get the game to load now! I get the error msg saying: "Unable to start game. Service instialization failed (0x6224dd27)." I think I will have to uninstall and reinstall once more, but at least …
  • I got it again!! Thanks soooo much Smooch! Removing the old EADM and re d/ling and installing the new one worked! I was able to get the game patch AND Riverview! Whew! I wish though that EA would make this a sp3 file so we can save it. Then we would…
  • So much for that theory! I did manage to restore the EADM or so I thought. At least it appears on my task bar now, but it (Riverview) *still* won't d/l properly and I *still* can't install it!! Somebody please help!
  • Ok, I looked for it and it does appear in the add/remove listings and I also did a search for it on my comp, but all I can find is a couple of shortcuts for it which turn up nothing when I click on them. It also said that it was in my Docs and Setti…
  • (Quote) I see what you mean! In the one paragraph he says kleptos and rummagers can sell their "loot," but in the last paragraph he says they can't! That is a direct contradiction, but judging on his past track record, he probably won't c…
  • (Quote) Is this a typo? I'm wondering b/c unless somebody knows somewhere else to get it, I've only found the pink diamond in a garbage can. I'm playing in Riverview. And getting stuff out of the garbage is not stealing. It's thrown away, lol. I ca…
  • I'm having this exact problem! I can't patch AT ALL, regardless of what files I remove! I also get that same error msg word for word. I have tried EVERY conceiveable method of removing every file that I can and nothing works!! I'm thinking right now…
  • Hi, I'm also havng problems w/the invalid file msg. I've tried *everything* meaning that I've removed everything that I can possibly remove and I still get the invalid file msg! I've removed all downloads, all mods, all cache files and even the xcpt…
  • Thanks Dandebirds! That worked. I was using IE,but why can't they program it to accept Enter to login? Enter worked fine to login for Firefox and it works fine to login for other websites on IE.
  • Nobody knows why this is happening? I would *like* to redeem my points that I got w/the game, but can't log in! The login screen *always* appears at the bottom of the window w/the last third of it concealed. Pressing Enter after entering my name and…
  • Thanks Everybody! My family now has the correct name. :)
  • Bump
  • How do I do that? When I click on city hall, the only options I have are "join political career," "attend charisma class," and "tour."
  • Thanks Jerziguy! That worked! He brought in all of his money plus his inventory. Now they can be properly married. :)
  • (Quote) 1)Yes, the birthing process takes much longer now than in TS2. 2) To buy pregnancy books, you need to visit the bookstore and "buy books." I don't know about "advise from the doctor." 3) The gender of the baby is deter…
  • Does anybody know?
  • This is really weird now! It seems that my bills reached a max of $300, then the next time they were delivered they came to $301 and now they're going down! This is definitely something I'm going to have to read up on when my guide comes.

    in Bills? Comment by Sonshine June 2009
  • I am familiar with how bills work, or have worked in the past. I've played sims for quite a while now. In the past, the bills always got less as things in the house depreciated. What's happening now is that my family's bills are going up regardless …

  • No, vise versa. One can't go *thru* the bathroom if the other is taking a bath. :/ However they can go to the toilet while the other is taking a bath. strange!
    in Modesty?? Comment by Sonshine June 2009
  • I found it. I went into map view and clicked on the Journalism place which is the only place that had a briefcase icon on the map tag. When I clicked on the bldg, it said "gather intel." :)
  • I too received my copy of the game in the mail today. :) I was very surprised. However, I've already encountered a bug. My sim can't play chess at all. It keeps telling me that I need to have a chair to play it, but the chair is standing in the righ…
