Has anyone had any problems with Windows 10 & the Sims 2 game. I want to try since I have been having problems with my Windows Xp on my old computer. I am a little leery of opening a can of worms. Any help would be much appreciated.

songib67,

I got a new pc last year with windows 10.  The very first thing I wanted to
do was install my Sims 2 game.  

I quickly learned it was a "no can do".  Then I checked the back of the
Sims 2 case for system requirements.  It shows the game's OS is Windows
Vista, XP, ME, 2000, or 98.  I didn't check first because I was too excited
with new pc.

You might want to check this.  Maybe, there's a Windows 10 game
available.  I hope so.  

However, it is cool to have my laptop with the game running while I cruise
websites and write my stories on my new pc.

I have seen posts on other sites about Sims2 and Windows 10..I know there was something on PBK..and Cinda's SimStyle..

There maybe something on it on the EA/Origin help you will have to do a few searches..when I get the time I will try and find the links to this..I can't get on PBK anymore so you will have to do that..but will go into the help center and look around..



Thank you so much Crissi, it's beautiful

I also address the Windows 10 and The Sims 2. I asked an expert on computers, or game will run on Windows 10, Amortisation I think so, and it should be faster. I did my computer, I know it is a real expert, but it is true that the game The Sims 2 does not address. But still I wait and see if I am confirmed, I wrote him again, I wanted to be sure and write here, as it is expressed. I'm sorry, I hope you understand what I write. :sunny:

Barbess,

I don't believe it's possible to install older software on new operating
systems it is not programmed for. Windows 10, in particular, seems to
have a real problem with this. If you check the online discussions about
Windows 10 you will find that many  people are very irate because it is
incompatible with a very wide range of software and games that are
very popular.

That is why I will be keeping my laptop that is operating Windows Vista.

I wouldn't know what to do if anything happened to this computer..it is a 2008 Windows Vista..and so far I haven't had any major problems..

I think I would have to find someone around here in town that would work on this computer before I went out and bought a new one..

And if I did buy a new computer I would first see if it is possible to put Windows Vista on it..don't seem possible but I would do everything I can first before I went to Windows 10 or highter..

It would really kill me if I couldn't play my Sims2..oh the joys of being poor crazyspin and go with withdrawals for my Sims2 runcircle ROFL

Thanks to all of you for the ideas. I will check into everything. Tomorrow I plan to call Origins. I want to be sure before I test anything out and lose what I have. Something is better than nothing.

Broomhilda 01,

It is indeed so that many programs we work with to create meshes and to recolor are not compatible with windows 10.
I have acquired a laptop with the hopes that when I am away from home, I will still be able to create, had everything installed, only to find the incompatibility issues.
No I use an expensive laptop for nothing more than to read my e-mails and access the internet when I am away from home.
What a waste of money.

I have decided though to invest some money in a new pc, which I will then keep at home.... and when we visit our holiday home, which is quite often, I will be using the older one.
I am just wondering now if I will be able to run the sims 4 on two different pc's. maybe on the older one I can keep it as an off-line game permanently.

I still have to make up my mind though....

Easter 01, maybe you're right, I believe that EA can make policy for the new version of The Sims. But I think I might be able to solve the Windows 10, see post Oldbox, and I read it. I have The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection, while games on Windows 7 64-Bitt. I keep getting offers to your computer Windows 10, even though I do not want him. Even with the same starting moving the update to Windows 10! So I again studied the internet connection with Sims 2 and Windows 10. Some players already play successfully on Windows 10. If this is true, then it will be great. And what is interesting, The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection can be stored in your library on your computer without having to be simultaneously Origin. This means that you start the game without Origin. Origin I uninstalled and the game is still running. I do not know how long leaves EA The Sims 2 on my Origin account, but far from it can re-download the game. This means that anyone who loves The Sims 2 does not have to worry that it disappears. I asked a month ago EA support of it, to send me a digital version of The Sims 2 on my new Origin account and they did it! http://my-official-ts2.blog.cz/1504/presvihli-ste-the-sims-2-ultimate-collection-od-originu-staci-kontaktovat-tvorcov-ea Therefore, I am grateful to them and I believe that if someone else asks EA via chat, he can still be a game.
May finally vyskúšam The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection for Windows 10, you can be said to go back again Windows 7 if I do not like. If I know I write something new.
It is true that I play to create anything, we apologize creator of beautiful creations in the game, because I do not understand. Compatibility Windows 10 and the creation of new things to the game is unknown for me and I admire those who can do it. :redrose:

To download The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection? Their families in the game save so that you back up an entire folder of The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection, and after downloading games from Origin simply copied to the game, it means that you have replaced it as the one that you downloaded. If you mean the game from CDs, really I do not understand.

To everybody!
 I have great news. I was on the phone this am with Origins.. ANNNNDDDD Yes, I have just downloaded the Ultimate Collection. I can see on my desktop and I am very happy. 
Broomhilda 01 you were so right.. You have to be persistent. I did not even have to talk to a manager.
The computer I downloaded to has Windows 10. He said because there are no disks it should work but, I don't know. I mainly wanted it for my old computer with windows Xp. Also, I don't know if it works with Nvaidia HD Graphics on the new computers. It does on my old one. Thanks so much broomhilda01 i had almost given up. and to all of you who worked with me on this.

I do plan to keep those neighborhood people at a distance ..no more deleting!

NewY4 Oh Happy Days, HappyDay Oh Happy Days, NewY4

I am so glad you were able to get the Sims2 Ultimate Collection..Renee..

Oh I know it's no big deal but it's Broomhilda61 not 01 lol..but you can call me anything you want lol

Sam or Samantha might be easier to say lol..

Yep no more deleting..what I do with them is just put them on a lot and put a phone with them and maybe change their clothes to fit your theme and then just ignore them..but I also found a way of getting rid of the Bin Sims..

Here is the link to that..Clean & Empty Stealth Hood Template..

Please don't do anything unless you understand what you are reading..I have pm's from Jawusa on a step by step process with pictures and very simple instructions on how to do this..without messing up..now if I can do it with her steps anyone can lol.. believe me..

I asked Jawuse if I can share those steps and she said yes..so may post them later on..if I have time..

I am still having problems downloading CC..I am getting everything downloaded except the CAS/Bodyshop..CC..I just asked an administrator of MTS that was able to get me a file share code..didn't know she was an administrator of MTS..so waiting on a response back from her to see if she can help me..I still haven't been able to play the game because of the CC..

I feel that I am now unsure about myself on everything I do and questioning myself..and I don't think I am doing anything more different than what I was doing before on downloading..

Different subject sorry..

I am so glad I was able to help out Renee..

Update: I opened Ultimate Collections on my newer computer which has Windows 10 and Intel HD graphics. I was a bit nervous as I didn't know what would happen. It did fine... I went into the towns and click on the people.I don't see any of the changes I was dreading. I don't know why it doesn't work for everyone.
 Everything was fine. It was faster getting into the game. I would still rather do this on my older one as I have so much CC.

I do have one with a backup of all my CC. I am about to dl it to my old computer. I took all the old sims stuff off. Is it safe to play the families in the homes? and change the structure of the houses or should I ignore them also?
