FIY TV Channel with Mechanical Skill Gain -by bkn1978

Gain logic with the Discovery Channel, for your Sims! -by

a Re-work from The Hollywood Movie Collection-by Sophie-David

Didn't test it with those in my downloads Remove those from your downloads if you're getting errors they have the same GUIDs as before


Included my whole broadcast folder, just replace your broadcast folder (Documents/EAgames/Sims 2/movies) and you'll got all avi files + few extra added (sims 3 movies) setted up

Installation of a new TV channel is a bit different to dropping your file into Downloads. It may seem confusing at first but I assure you it isn't. Just be sure to follow the directions below precisely.

1. Extract 7 Custom Channels folder and place into your Downloads folder

2. Open "Broadcast folder", and Go to C:\Users\YOURNAME\Documents\EA Games\The Sims2\Movies\Broadcast. Replace Broadcast folders with mines or put the new TV folders in there.

3. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\YOURLATESTEXPANSION\TSData\Res\UserData\Config. the text file called 'Broadcast.ini' It is preferable to back up this file should anything go wrong afterwards. Replace it with my Broadcast.ini file from the .rar

4. Open your game and the channels probably should be functional (If 3rd step isn't done your channels won't display up anything but will work still)

CREDITS on AVI files:
Avi files are mine but movies were created with this videos, thank you a lot simmers!


And thank you all modders for the tutorials for setting this up:
