The Sims 2 mods & screen resolution.

Post by dafadafa on Sun 01 May 2016, 02:59

I recently downloaded the Ultimate Collection of sims 2 through you guys and I want to start installing mods. I'm not sure how to go about it with this version and where I should make the "Downloads" folder. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you Smile

Hello,


I'm currently not on my main computer(s), but if I recall correctly, you need to navigate to Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 and create a folder named Downloads there. The folder will also be created once you start up the "Bodyshop" for the first time.

In this Downloads-folder, you can create further subfolders if you want to keep your CC organized a bit.


Good luck for now though !

Screen Resolution

Post by dafadafa on Mon 02 May 2016, 21:46

I've been trying to get my screen resolution to 1920 x 1080 in Sims 2 Ultimate Collection but it will not work no matter what I do. I'm not sure which graphics rules I'm supposed to use since there seem to be multiple but I tried the one in the pets ep folder since that's what this tutorial directs you to do: http://simsvip.com/2014/07/20/the-sims-2-ultimate-collection-increase-resolution-guide/

The only option it gives me is 800 x 600 even after following that whole tutorial through and through. This is what my settings look like currently:

Hello again,

I merged your new post to your other thread. Smile  Let's keep all discussions about the same game in only one topic, for the time being. If you downloaded the game from Games4theworld (which I understand from your opening post), then you have to look inside the folder for "Mansion and Garden stuff". User @Jadeskyee once wrote a nice tutorial here:

Good luck for now !
