I know there is a way of changing the size where you can get online and play the game at the same time..someone tried to help me with that a couple of years ago but it didn't work for me..

Is there anyone that can give me a step by step maybe with pictures if possible please..it would be nice to play the game and yet if I need something I don't have to get out of the game get online and then get back into the game.. :cbs:

Thank  you for your help in advance  summerB9

OK Sam ,

Start Sims when the game is running, then press the windows key and you're on the desktop and can continue in the Cherry Blossom talk
and back-pressure sims button and you can torment sims giggle *lol*

is the translation for good or bad ???????

Hi ... I am playing all the time in a "Windows mode" .. that means that the game - window always appears small and I am able to do other things while the game is open.

I had this instruction for it copied .. it works for Sims 2 ...

Just click on the "Start" button on your Taskbar. Then, go to All Programs>EA Games>The Sims 2 and right click on the name, choose "Open". Right-Click on The Sims 2 icon and then, click on "Properties". Then, in the "Target Line" under Shortcut, type a space, then "-w" and then click "Apply". It'll be in permanent windowed mode (where you can minimize and close like an internet window) unless you take that out

Hey Crissi, that is what someone else had done for me and it didn't work at least at my end..it was still a full screen..now the other person was on Skype and they can see my desktop as well as the game..didn't get a chance to try the other way last night..to many storms and that lightening was relentless for most of the night..so didn't even get on my game..now in my game everything was small not sure I really want it that small..will try again this evening if these storms aren't to bad..

Thank you Conny, poppy and Crissi for your help :bluestar:

I press the windows key. Then i can go online and do whatever. There is a game icon that comes up when you press the windows key. To continue playing, just click on the icon. It takes a second or two, and your back in game. Very easy. I use it ALL the time!
