Sims 2 UC installer?

Post by pokemaniac15 on Sun 03 Aug 2014, 01:52

I just finished downloading The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection, now, I was wondering if there is a way to store or to back-up the installer (if there is one) that has been downloaded, so that I can avoid downloading it again. Cause it took me days on downloading it. Even gave my pc no rest. lol.

Thank you so much. And If ever I posted my dilemma on the wrong thread, please do move it.  Smile

Hello,


I'm sorry to hear about your slow internet, but Origin doesn't work that way. You can't "back up the installer", like in a pirated game. So, for example, if you format your computer, or want to play on a different computer, then you always need to re-download the game.

Theoretically, you could backup your whole registry, and the game installation folders, but that may be not enough. There could be "hidden" folders from that game. I'm not going into details now, since I'm unsure myself about it.

So yes, the only realistic option I can tell you is that you need to re-download the game, when necessary.
