I refuse to give up my game even if it means reinstalling it, re-pathching it... Installing clean templates again and fixes... uff, a long way to go... However, there seem to be hope at the sight and I wanted to thank you for it! Thank you for this tutorial! and your all your wonderful advice.

But my new laptop which was a christmas present has Intel HD Graphics which this says is incompatible with sims 2 T_T I want to play my game so bad and while it will install fine it crashes every single time I try to create a sim or load a pre-made sim with the sole exception of Don Lothario, it loads his house but crashes whenever I try to make him cook.

I am in the same situation. I followed the guide and installed as directed, and I still can't play because of my video card. It really makes me mad because I was looking at a different computer, and he was like... oh no get this one. Do you play games? Because it is perfect for gaming. Umm... NOT. Not the one particular game I play.

I can build houses, play around, but as soon as I try to create a sim it crashes. I don't know, I guess I will try it again. I am to the point where I am going to trade someone else for an older laptop...

Asking cause I have the option of going either Win 7 or 8 when I buy a new laptop.
