Hello,

Well, there have been many problems in the past with the TS2 release, but we can consider giving it another go. We've all gained tons of experience after all.

It'd be awesome if you guys could do it Smile No pressure of course, I'm sure you've got a million other things to do. Thanks for responding.

Hi,

Yes, it is actually on the to-do list, but you know. Life. Time.
It'll get there eventually...

Hello,


Not just you. Smile  I'm sure that a lot of people would love to play (again) The Sims 2. However, as Lady ElDi already hinted here:

There are several issues to take into account, which I will briefly dwell on here. I myself downloaded 2 different "collections" of The Sims 2 + expansions. The first was from an uploader on Piratebay back then, and was labelled "TS2 Double Deluxe & Expansions" from an uploader named "XP1", if I recall correctly.

The second one seems to be taken from ISO-rips, from the legit discs. I think this one was from the uploader "KHAOS-industries".

The basic problem is with the installation on the recent Windows systems. As for the Khaos-release, I did not manage to get it running on a Windows 8 system. Whenever you install an expansion to the base game, it prompts you to update the game and to "insert disc 1". And of course, if you mount the .ISO then, it is not recognized as legit.
Concerning the other release from XP1, I once managed to install it on my Windows 7 system, but I haven't tried it on Windows 8. I also suspect that the one from XP1 is in a way "modified", so as to make the installation on recent Windows systems possible.

I did some research, and there seem to be ways to get these games installed and running on Windows 8 too, but these procedures are... "difficult", and I believe that a modified "all-in-one" installer may be the better way to go for G4TW. But we will need to see. 

Another dimension of complexity is the release of Windows 10 now, which we would also need to take into account in any pre-release testing.
