View Full Version : WRONG EP how do I fix?
11th May 2009, 5:12 AM
I download several houses, Yes from MTS! some said custom content
BUT I had checked MY EP ONLY
I have ALL games but Apartment Life
all Stuff Packs BUT Happy Holiday and Mansion and Garden
So I guess the poster slipped something in the contents that was
NOT compatible.. :!:
How do I get rid of the non-compatible item with out having to go in
and remove Items see if my game stops crashing then go back and add
until I find the one that makes it crash!
I have tried Conflict Detection, content Manager Dalphy's Organizer and SimPE
and they find NOTHING!
Someone please help me and tell me what I need to find this bad

Whether or not a house is compatible with your game depends on the game it was built with, not on the objects so much. You can remove objects from stuff packs with Clean Installer I believe. If the lot requires EPs you don't have, there's nothing you can do short of installing those EPs.
There is a utility in the works that might be able to convert lots so that they use fewer EPs, but to my knowledge it's not publically available yet. Do a site search for "CompatiLot" if you think this may help you; it's mentioned a few times in this thread: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=250693
I'm not really sure what you're trying to say with "BUT I had checked MY EP ONLY" .. to me it sounds a little like you applied the search filter backwards. Please doublecheck the EP requirements of the lots you downloaded; if you find a lot that indeed has the wrong EPs checked and is crashing your game, feel free to alert the creator and if they don't fix it, report it.

I have clean installer 22.214.171.124 I never download anything from any site with out running it through installer first... since I have found some sites that don't list what EP they are using.
I found only 1 item marked in red and that was InSimenator, which I have been using for years and never had a problem with
and Forensic Medicine career that elegant rubble loaded here and you only need the Original Ep to run...
So I am at a loss
When I made the statement I checked my EP's only what I mean is when I do a search for something I always have checked my EP's only and I always make sure it says Compatible at the top so that I don't accidentally download something for a EP I don't have... But it seems that someone miss labeled something
So since I can't find it I am removing ALL of my downloads and starting from scratch

Clean Installer only lists things in red if they are hacks. (Yes, custom careers are hacks.)
Your problem is with a lot downloaded recently. You don't need to take out anything that was fine before you downloaded the lot. You just need to take out all the lots you recently installed. Then you can put them back one at a time to find out which one caused the problem.
Although it's probably too late now. Sorry.
