Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
So yeah, I usually don't post stuff here because it's bothersome and messy, but this needed a wider audience since all the sheep are complaining about it and I don't want them all visiting me. You damn kids, stay off my lawn.

Download direct-linked below because I may update it frequently as additional issues are found. And you damn kids, stay off my lawn! I mean it! I'll use the hose on you, I mean it! Damn kids.

Wow EA really knows how to bork up a game.. TS2 is probably the most poorly coded/optimized game in a long time. Thank goodness for people like you!

This is great. Is there anywhere you'd like us to report other bugs/issues we've found, or are you just going to take the hits as they come?
Not actually evil.
