This new CAS! / YACAS! Screen switching program allows you to automatically preview and apply a different CAS! or YACAS! screen (but NOT
when the game is running.)
The previews are small images. To make them as big as you want, click on the little "up" button below the image. You can cycle through the images on the preview window.
View more screenshots below in the attachments.
*The Mansion and Garden CAS! Screen and the In the University YACAS! Screen created by me is included, as well as the default MAXIS/EA CAS! Screen.
Don't forget to:
-HOW TO USE-
To use this application fully and without any errors, it MUST be installed into your Sims 2 folder. This can be found in:
"My Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\".
In this folder you will have a folder installed called "CAS! Files". This is where you will put all of your custom CAS! Screens and images.
Setting images to your files. Here is an example:
Changing your CAS! Screen is easy. First make sure that you are in Game Mode. To do this, click on the Game Mode button on the bottom of the main window. Then click on any of the available files on the top navigation, see the preview below. If it is not the one you want select a different one. Next and finally, click the check mark button on the bottom. You will be notified if it has correctly been changed.
Changing your YACAS! Screen is easy. First make sure you are in University Mode. To do this, click on the University Mode icon on the bottom of the main window. Then click on any of the available files on the top navigation, see the preview below. If it is not the one you want select a different one. Next and finally, click the check mark button on the bottom. You will be notified if it has correctly been changed.
To change CAS! and YACAS! objects/background objects, change your CAS!/YACAS! screen and a new window will appear. Here you can configure the invisible objects. See screenshots for details.
PLEASE NOTE: If you already use windkeeper's CAS!/YACAS! invisible objects, please delete all instances of the files if they are anywhere in your downloads folder. This application installs them for you - so if you already have them, there will be conflicts!
