This is great - I hate when they play it allll the time.

One question though: Does this also work for the other games besides SSX3? I'm assuming it does, but I just thought I'd ask.

Oh my gosh thank you so much...I'm so sick of my simmie's deciding to play video games instead of cleaning! Now if only I could find the non autonomous fridge so my darn teens stop raiding the fridge before dinner!

This is a much needed hack as well as the one for TVs. I prefer my sims to dance and listen to music but I also like the looks and convenience of having a television and computer in the house. Until now I have stopped buying them because the TV and SSX would be blaring all day long.

I wonder this too. IT would be so helpful if it also affects the other PC games. But thanks so much for the hack. Gonna DL it now.

Wow out of everything those simmies do..this is what I hated the most - thanks!!

Wow, it's beautiful outside. I should probably do something.. Like close the blinds on my window so there isn't a glare on my computer screen.

Ahh, thank you! The most annoying thing is sending my sims off to do something only to find they've gotten waylaid and decided to play games instead. Besides, I don't think computer games suited the post-apocalytic world I built for my sims! :D

Hi Christianlov, this is a great mod, but would you please consider making one to disable online chatting? I hate how my Sims always end up chatting to random strangers!
