Oh the joys of being an idiot lol.. runcircle

Well I haven't been able to play my game and my computer is messing up..waiting on a call back from Origin to get things fixed.. bored

Did a factory restore on this computer last night thinking I can fix the problem with that and oh the joys of being an idiot..lol  shame

That didn't fix the problems..Can't get Origin to download..going through Sims2 withdrawals right now runcircle

And with my Sims2 disks/or digital with Double Deluxe wouldn't download either..and my Ultimate Collection didn't uninstall or reinstall correctly  angry

Just letting you know I maybe in and out but not posting anything until this is all fixed..

10 or minutes or so and Origin will be calling me back..will let you know what happens.. bored

Me to..driving me nuts here lol..

Well off for now..waiting on the call back..let you all know what is going on..

Have a great day everyone.. :summer2:

UPDATE:

Ok not sure what happened but was able to get Origin downloaded..Oh I found out that all the Sims2 disks are no good..can you believe that..$200 and 4 years to get all of them as well as the digital..and they no longer work..you have to have the Ultimate Collection..

So if you try and reinstall them be aware that they may not work or don't work..so if you have the Sims2 disks installed all ready..DON'T Uninstall them..unless you have the Ultimate Collection..

I asked the guy from Origin a bit ago that I wanted to use the disks and he said they are outdated..so they won't work anymore..

I am in the process of installing the Ultimate Collection and I hope after doing a factory restore my game is clean of all CC and Neighborhoods/Sims that I have created..

Oh tilly no the disks are not going to be updated..he told me that they were out of date and and the only way to play is with the Ultimate Collection..so if you have the Sims2 disks installed and you tend to play Sims2 in the future keep them installed..

And it looks like my CC is being downloaded properly as well..but have to start all over again on the CC..but for now I am just going to download the CC I need for the house renovation..

Oh don't say that Anita..what I was thinking of doing is going onto Origin and posting a plea for everyone that has Sims2 disks to get them to give the Ultimate Collection a second chance for the people that didn't get it the first time..

It don't hurt to try right..may do that right now..

Be back in a bit..

A Plead for the Ultimate Collection to come back..

I found out yesterday that if you have the Double Deluxe then you can't use it anymore..you have to play the Ultimate Collection..


Well there are a lot of Sims2 players out there that didn't know that the Double Deluxe can't be played anymore it's out dated they told me..so if you are thinking of uninstalling your games you won't be able to play them unless you have the Ultimate Collection..that's not a good thing..


I am here to plead with EA/Origin to bring out the Ultimate Collection again for those that never thought their disks would go out of date so never got the Ultimate Collection..I have a few friends that want to try out the Sims4 but can't now if they want to continue playing Sims2 in the future..


How can we get the Ultimate Collection back please..


Thank you all for your help in Advance..

This is what I posted over at EA help center..I hope it gets a lot of response..I may even call Origin lol in a few days to get something there..

Broomhilda - Although they are saying that, it isn't actually true.

I've been able to install my games on my machine and I'm helping a friend to install hers up to today.

The disks are not supported by Origin, but they are not unusable. Sims 2 is outdated compared to Sims 3 and Sims 4. Because they are not supported by Origin, they will not help fix any problems with the CDs/DVDs.

I have a forum at Leefish where I fix all of this sort of stuff. (Not suggesting that you should go there for help, but there's lots of help around for getting Sims 2 installed from the CD/DVDs ). You shouldn't be forced to get the ultimate collection which has some problems unique to it rather than the CD's / DVDs that you've already paid for.

Hi Broomhilda61

 I called Origins yesterday to plead for a download of Sims2, They had me on hold forever. I told them that I was an old member and that my game was acting up to no avail. They said that they may get something going but, I think that they were trying to pacify me.
I didn't realize the harm I was doing to my game when I deleted the families that came with the game. Which I did all the time. 
I can still play the game but, weird things happen in the game. I have always been able to redownload my game... I don't have the double deluxe. I am with you though in thinking they should do something for us.

Renee-yes by deleting the Sims you have corrupted your game..I hope you can get that fixed..have you tried uninstalling and installing the game again..I hope you can reinstall them if you uninstall I am afraid you may not be able to reinstall them again.  

celebkiriedhel-it is true the disks are no longer supported by Origin..they said that the disks are no longer supported and if you can't download them the only way to play Sims2 is with the Ultimate Collection..I spent several hours yesterday with Origin and they were a very big help to me....first guy wanted to argue with me..and that is a no, no..so got a supervisor and he is the one that spend several hours with me..then turned me over to someone else who spent several more hours with me trying to get Origin to redownload and the get the Ultimate Collection to download properly..by that time I did a factory restore..

celebkiriedhel when was the last time you uninstalled your game and then installed it back..

This is what I am getting when I tried to download the Double Deluxe with the disk and by going into Origin and trying that way..

The Network is having problems: The download Server is not responding..Please give it a few moments and try again. If the problem persists please contact Origin Help. Submit an error report.. they looked into that and to try and figure out why it was saying that..

When I told them that, that is when they said that the disks were no longer supported..if others can install the Sims2 Double Deluxe please let me know..how you did it..

I trust EA/Origin completely they have been very good to me..

Like I said if you can get the Double Deluxe to download let me know how you did it..if I can't get that to download then I can't see if the other disks will download..

Hi All,

I saved this wonderful post from the Numenor several years ago.  I don't know if it will help
anyone with the origin problem, but it will help bypass that annoying Sims launcher.

This entire fix which follows is quoted from Numenor.

Problem

You may find, after installing Bon Voyage, FreeTime, or any later EP; that the game thinks you
have uninstalled a previous Expansion Pack, and gives you a warning that continuing may remove
game data. Or of course, you may just not like the launcher.

Solution

You can bypass the launcher screen, so that it won't show up. This will also fix problems with
the game thinking you've uninstalled EPs, as it's the launcher which causes this issue. If you
don't understand the short instructions, there are more detailed ones below.

The Short Instructions

• Open the Properties of the game shortcut in your Start Menu/Desktop/wherever.
• Change the target from "Sims2Launcher.exe" to "Sims2EP6.exe"for Bon Voyage,
or "Sims2EP7.exe" for FreeTime, and hit OK.

The Long Instructions

Open your start menu, quicklaunch, or desktop - wherever the icon you use to
start the game is. Right click the icon, and click Properties


"C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Mansion and Garden Stuff\TSBin\Sims2Launcher.exe"





You'll see in the Target box, it says "Sims2Launcher.exe". This is the bit we need to change:





Replace "Sims2Launcher.exe" with "Sims2EP6.exe" for Bon Voyage or "Sims2EP7.exe" for FT, and press OK.





Done!

I am truly thankful he shared this information.

broomhilda -

My friend is currently re-installing her game this week, so that recently. I did mine about 3 months ago.

Do you have the physical disks? Both I and my friend have them and that's where we are having no problem installing them.

Origin isn't supporting the digital download of the individual disks, but I understood from your statement - "Oh I found out that all the Sims2 disks are no good..can you believe that..$200 and 4 years to get all of them as well as the digital" that you had both the physical disks as well as the digital download. Maybe I misunderstood?

I have the Double Deluxe and most of the other games on disks..I have a few that are digital that I couldn't get the disks for..

And when I use the disks or go into origin and try and download it, it is saying the same thing..

I think where I'm a bit confused is exactly which game? Sims 2, Sims 3, or Sims4.

Isn't the Double Deluxe for Sims 2?

Whereas, Orgin is for Sims 3 and Sims 4?

Broomhilda,

I did look.  So, which game is the problem? Sims 2, Sims 3, or Sims 4?

(Just wait until Sims 5 comes out with a whole new set of problems) thlol

Sims2 Double Deluxe..is my problem..

after spending $200 and 4 years getting them..and now finding out they are no good..Unless they come out with the Ultimate Collection for 3 and 4 for FREE, I'm not buying anymore Sims disks or digital downloads..

I'm going to wait till after the Holiday..and then on Tuesday going to call them back and see what I can do here..

And now last night I went downloading everything back and my clothes and hair are not showing up in either Bodyshop or CAS..

Just about in tears doing all this..and you know what I'm not even mad..I'm so tired of it all I can't even get mad about it..



Thank you so much Crissi, it's beautiful
