Default thank you
02) You are attempting to open the icon files by double-clicking them

In the case of #01 (for WinXP), you need to open up "My Computer", select "Tools \ Folder Options", select the "View" tab, uncheck "Hide extensions for known filetypes", click "Apply", then "Apply to All Folders".

I had the same problem . This worked for me. Thanks a lot for the help and the tutorial Psion. I'm glad I didn't have to read this hole form to find the answer to my question.. :moose:

I'm sorry not to be critical of your work but your not clear enough of what should be a semi-easy task. And this document must be outdated because this is really difficult. For instance step 3. "select "File...Extract all" and extract all isn't listed in the file menu on my version of simpe. and I'm unclear on what I need Object functions, object data, or Name reference. Well if you can help me understand your guide great.

This is great, and the support you are giving is incredible!

I'm afraid I need to ask for some. I'm trying to make a simple Sims 2 career, no EP installed currently.

So far I got as far as open the object (couldn't find any box marked "Group Filter"

"1.Filter for GroupID 0x7FC82329 (Athletics Career)
a.Select the box marked “Group Filter”.
b.Type in “0x7FC82329”."

but I found the object the hard way and opened it.
Now I can't find anything to extract it with?

There is nothing to tell me what the T G and I boxes are but I found it by clicking on the G - well G is for Group? and scrolling looong way down.

But where do I go from here? As a relative newbie who has tried and failed to work through many SimPE tutorials, I would be deeply grateful for any help you can give me. (I find it never looks the same in the tut as my onscreen version - I guess because it's updated so often, and I learn visually so it's very hard....)

Ohh, this is old... This tutorial is way outdated I'm afraid. If you need a career base, you can download one from here- Just pick one, download it and edit it.

I am creating followiong your tutorial, very useful, thanks.
- Does instance “0x00001056” from Behaviour Constant set to 0 makes a graduate career or is the other way round?
- Is the number of levels fixed? Can I leave black entries till get to value 0x15 where begins the female entries? If I can, then will it arrive for sure at the top of the career when arrived at the last no empty value or will it crash the game?

Hope you can help me

blade, I'm afraid I cannot answer your first question (as I never use that BCON file), but I can answer your second.

If you have the latest version of SimPE, you can use bidou's career editor to remove and add levels. This is better than simply leaving levels blank.

I'm afraid I don't knoe what's bidou's career editor even if I do have the last version of SimPE.
So then I can remove levels, doing so first value of female's values will not start in the 0X15 as it used to do, doesn't it crash the game? Or the game manages it dinamicaly, I mean, it doesn't look for the value 0x15 but for the one which is the same as the 0X1?

Thanxxx very much

I would advise the use of bidou's editor. If you have the latest version of SimPE, it can be found under Tools...

Then use these buttons to add and remove levels...

I'm afraid I only work with the latest versions of SimPE because they are much easier than old methods. They are also less buggy, so I'd advise you use them.

This was originally developed, then moved from, and some useful resources are still located there.

Any feed back will be appreciated (please be gentle )

To give people a better idea of the content of the document, I have changed the format of this post to include only the latest changes, and added the table of contents.

The guide is in both MS Word 2000 (DOC) and Adobe Acrobat (PDF) formats. They are the same document. Word format is recommended as it has active hyperlinks for the document's bookmarks, making navigation easier.

I have now released v0.05. A lot of changes in this one.

There are currently 15 main sections to this document:
01) Introduction
A short introduction to this document. Going over the conventions, programs and limitations of this guide.
02) New Career Worksheets
Useful for planning and referencing your career
03) University (EP1) pack compatibility warning!!
Warning to career modders
04) Language translations
Adding extra language support to your career
05) Steps to Create a New Adult Career (Standard non-Graduate)

11) Posting your career for Beta / Release

i think i'll leave this to the professionals untill new versions of SimPE stop coming out... Most of the stuff you say to do does not seem to exist on SimPE version whatever i have. Its probably realy simple, but shh.... :insane:

So does this mean that we can not create custom careers with OFB? I just printed this out because I had downloaded the career workshop, but before I start...does it mean that previous careers won't work? And does it mean that I can't create a custom career because it wont work? Thanks
