How to play The Sims 2 offline on ZLOrigin.

Post by Tarac on Wed 26 Jul 2017, 13:35

With ZLOrigin you can download The Sims 2 complete collection.  
Nice, but you can't play it because it comes up with the error message that the license limit is reached.

Simple solution:
Download a NEW NO-CD FILE FOR THE GAME
Extract with Winrar
Open the install folder of the Sims 2 (usually C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection)
Open the folder Fun With Pets
Open the folder SP9
Open the folder TSBin
Copy the newly downloaded file into the folder TSBin, overwriting the existing file.

Now you can play the game without the need to login to ZLOrigin. You can play the game off-line.



Mod edit: moved to the right section.

Using just the (cracked) Sims2EP9.exe, placing it in the TSBin, and overwriting the existing file should work as well though.

After the last ZLOrigin update this procedure will lead to "Origin is not installed" strangely enough.
Let ZLOrigin repair your game and you can play it online and offline without any additional tricks or fixes.

Another reason to think about more conventional cracked downloads again, at least in my (unimportant) opinion.
