This user has the following games installed:

Sims 2, Open for Business, Pets, Seasons, Bon Voyage
Default Any way to have two separate games on same computer?
Is there a way to have 2 separate games, w/ different saved families, cc etc, on 1 computer? Because I want to make a mediaeval world but I also want a normal world.
I think I was a tutorial for this a while back but I can't remember where....does anyone know?
Thanks!

I think that if you create two seperate Windows accounts; you have a different My Documents therefore the saves and CC are seperate.

I'm supporting the Optimist Camp for the Sims 4.

You can also have two seperate The Sims 2 folders (in Documents) under the same account. Just make sure the one you want to play is named The Sims 2 and the one you don't is named something different, and just rename when you want to switch.

Thank you so much!
Do you possibly know if I could keep the sims 2 (would this also work w/ sims 3?) file I am not playing in documents and just rename it to something else, and then change the name when I want to play it?

I do that all the time. You can either rename the "EA Games" folder or "The Sims 2" folder and have multiple copies without any problem.

You're obviously doing something wrong, but it's difficult to tell what's wrong with the amount of information provided. Why don't you tell us exactly what you're doing, step by step including full path names, and we'll see whether we can figure out what's wrong?

So just to make sure, I should make another copy of my Sims 2 folder and have it in the same folder, and just inter switch the titles?

Also, hi! Sorry for barging in! I had a similar question. Heh.

Don't copy it - just renaming your existing Sims 2 folder (to something like "The Sims 2 normal game", or whatever), and the game will create a brand new folder next time you play, as if you'd just installed TS2. You can of course copy over any CC and so on that you want to have in your second game.

You can also use Numenor's AnyGame Starter to do this too, simply create an AnyGame with all you EPs and SPs. That way you won't have to make sure you have the correct Sims2 folder in your Documents as the active one.
