BV Second patch is out *Update*
« on: 2008 February 14, 03:35:27 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

The REAL patch is up on the official site.
Change log:
Quote
   
* Sims will no longer have the option to call vacation service NPCs after acquiring the business perk "Head for Numbers" which was causing a crash.
    * Sims will no longer have the option to "Call Taxi" using their cell phones if they have driven to the community lot with an own-able vehicle which was causing a crash.
    * If the Sim misses the shuttle, it will no longer return to a vacation lot without the Sim at the end of the vacation. Sometimes, this caused the vacation lot to become unusable.
    * Game will no longer create new vacation NPCs each time a lot is visited which was causing many issues due to character file overload. Any existing extra NPCs will be unlinked and their character files greatly reduced in size.

    * Polish Only: Fixed issue with hotel room pricing.
    * You can now queue up multiple Dig For Treasure interactions.
    * When clicking "Ready to Play" the Launcher now launches first.
    * Sims can now be added to a group when "Walk To…" interaction is canceled and re-queued.
    * Sims no longer become stuck in vehicle when transitioning from a Secret Lot to a Vacation Home.
    * Customers reject a massage if the purchase price is set too high.
    * Bigfoot can no longer be asked to go on Group Outing.
    * Fire Dancer Mat and Food Stands cannot be placed in a Sim's inventory.
    * Seating can now be removed from the Food Stands.
    * Fire dancer mat cannot be set for sale.
    * Having the Business Perks interface open when the vacation loading screen begins will no longer cause the game to freeze.
    * Young Adults who are staying at a vacation home no longer have the option to Get Married or Move In another Sim.
    * Sims can no longer assign others to be a masseuse.

I am not touching that.  Why would EAxis not post it on their own site?

Also it would be the second patch, not the 3rd stupid Giggy.

No idea, but I gave up patching my game after the Pets patch fiasco so this is just another one I'll avoid.  Besides, some of those fixes sound like they would be fun to keep, like selling the fire dancing mat.

ETA: I bit the bullet and made a quick recon at the "official" dump.  There are a couple links for downloads and a notation it will be up tomorrow.  I wonder how many things  BVP2 will break.

My opinion is that EA would release their patch on their website as they have always done before. This is clearly fake and I am annoyed that anyone would be stupid enough to believe that it could be real. I'm looking at you Giggy. Just because some random person claims that they are EA doesn't mean that it's true. Let's do a test!

HAI EVERYONE! I am MaxoidInvisigoth! I can has released a new patch today!!! Come download it at www.Iswearitsnotavirus.com!!! Srsly! I is a representative of EA!!

So, what do you guys think? Am I really a Maxoid? Well, I SAID that I work for EA so it MUST be true, right? Discuss!

Some of the fixes are too good to be Maxis.

Some of them are complete bullshit. Why would they remove the ability to direct employees to be a masseuse. You need that. Why wouldn't they let Bigfoot go on a group outing?

Fake, and even if real, not wanted.

Actually, they copypasted the fix list from a post that MaxoidShannon made recently. She claims that a new patch with those fixes will be available soon, but she never mentioned anything about it being hosted on some other website or not being officially endorsed by EA, so this one is a fake, but the list is canon.

Given  that "Assign... Be Masseuse" is useless now, removing it is the laziest option to choose. You'll note the lack of "Assign... Be Farmer" and "Assign.. Be Fisheman"  in the unmodded Seasons + OFB game. BRY fixes that.

After seeing this thread, I went by Game Copy World and there was a no-cd/dvd exe available for this new BV patch. Hatred (the group which released the exe) are not gonna waste their time releasing a crack for a non-existant patch. Searching the various EA sites, the patch is available here:

http://www.electronicarts.co.uk/downloads/4639/

As you can see, its from EA's UK site (why the patch is not on EA's US site is a good question...maybe it will appear there soon). The patch is very much real and upgrades BV from v1.10.0.122 (Patch #1) to v1.10.0.130 (Patch #2).

I have seen The Patch 2 list.
http://bbs.thesims2.ea.com/community/bbs/messages.php?threadID=1c56d5b5652d9270ac7b82d004ef20c1&directoryID=189&startRow=1&openItemID=item.189,root.1,item.43,item.104,item.41,item.127,item.23

Al I can say is: Is that all!!!. Or is it just me. There are a lot more glitches.
I will just keep using MATY's hacks. And wait for a 3rd patch with a fixed .exe. Wink

It always takes a while to have a CD-crack released for a patched copy. It can be from one day to never.

The patch isn't up on the U.S. EA site.  I'm waiting to see how the mods will be affected by the patch before I install it.  I made my latest game backup last night, so I'm good to go whenever I'm ready to take the plunge.

Yes, and when it is endorsed by El Presidente as well.

I may just wait until Free Time comes out. Then I don't have to worry about finding a new crack twice.

GameBurnWorld just puts up whatever anyone sends them whether it works or not, and I noticed that the most recent fixed .exe is suspiciously small. It's very possible that it's a virus.

I am going to stick with .122 until further notice. I can think of no conceivable reason they would put a patch on a UK site but not the USA site.

..., and I noticed that the most recent fixed .exe is suspiciously small. It's very possible that it's a virus.

The games themselves are relatively small, the CS no-cd is around the same size. Securom adds it's own virtual machine to translate API calls from the protection, so that's why they bloat up in file size so much. No-cd hacks either fake the VM or try to remove it fully or enough that it doesn't run anymore, the end result is a bunch of zeroed out sections in the game executable which are much easier to compress  Grin Those that remove it entirely are a lot smaller than the ones that try to fake it.

Doesn't mean it's a virus, they just used a different method of removing the securom and compressed it afterwards (google UPX). Think of it this way: there are essentially two ways to break Securom using a no-cd, one leaves the VM intact and gives it fake answers so it thinks it's legit (more error prone and slower performance, since you're emulating two things on top of the game code), the other removes the VM and rebuilds the game code into normal APIs. If the VM is removed, you have 0's in the space where it was before. It's a lot easier to compress 0's than it is to compress code that translates garbage into the real thing plus extra code to fool it.
