Default TESTING TIME - Remastered The Sims 2 Launcher
IT'S TIME FOR SOME TESTING!

If you want to try and test my launcher, here you are:
DOWNLOAD LINK

Windows SmartScreen will probably want to block the app because of unknown source or creator. You just need to allow the app once and it should be ok!

Please give me feedback about anything you find broken or there are problems with.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To do:
  • add missing translations
  • fix flickering on scrollboxes
  • performance optimization

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi, I'd like to show you my remastered The Sims 2 Launcher. I want to know your opinions, suggestions and any other comments about it.

The Launcher has bigger icons, custom title bar and options for full screen, resolution and language.





If you noticed a "Splash" checkbox then let me show you what it does!



It displays your newest expansion pack logo for a few seconds, before the game loads.

If you are interested in my launcher, let me know!

I love how you are still keeping with the TS2 aesthetics with your launcher! The only thing I can really give feedback on is having more options for settings like borderless widescreen, Sims2RPC, Enabled/Disabled Custom Content.

Will your launcher will also launch BodyShop or is it just The Sims 2 game only?

It looks that it works well with Windows 10 (correct me if I'm mistaken). You don't have to change UAC settings for this launcher to avoid 'this app has been blocked for your protection' message? I get this message with TS2 Launcher, so I have to bypass it. I'd rather leave UAC settings as they are. They exist for some reason.

Yeah, it doesn't have problem with that.

This doesn't have the hotloading of .asi like RPC does, does it?

I can try to add RPC support, so all it's functions would work with my launcher.

I like this idea, it's nice to know that the launcher can be improved! What does the "Game Version" button represent? The version of base game that is installed?

And also a few appearance changes like:

Hello, your launcher looks so pretty! I especially interested in changing language option.
Can you upload it, please?
