THANKS THIS IS GREAT

ok, I'm going to check this out.

Question time:  if I add a second uni to my hood, will I get a whole new set of dormies and professors in addition to what I've already got?  Or does the second uni just use the existing dormies and professors?

Well, I suggest you check in SimPE for the things I've outlined and see if something similar has occurred.

Ness, you shouldn't get more dormies or professors etc., but you will find that the premade students wander between hoods once they arre out of the bin.

Yea, it does use the same set for multiple Unis, which means you can have one dorm resident living in different dorms on different campuses at the same time Smiley.

That's one reason I only use five-roomed dorms and put all the sims I want in them - I hate the way the game can't put different ones in each dorm, but keeps on selecting almost the same ones.  It's as if they actually want you to move them in and make them selectable, which rather, in a way, defeats the object of having them in the first place!

Well, nodormiprotect does help cull the herd a bit. Smiley  And with nodormiregen installed, I've been mostly making my own and turning them into dormies with inge's bush.  I also did that with some of the maxis uni sims that I had no intention of ever playing.

Well, that's one way of getting rid of some of the deadwood, I guess!  It's a pity they didn't come up with a way, when you start a hood, you get a selection of townies/dormies displayed on a screen, which you can select or reject (a bit like selecting a jury!), and rename if you are sick of adding more Gilscarbos to your hood!

Curiouser and curiouser...

I added ALT to my hood, I've gone straight to Mitch's lot and just put him through his first semester of uni...  his grade bar expanded as he got each necessarily skill and his GPA is now at 4.0.

Why does it not work in some games but works perfectly in mine?

I've done nothing in simpe, just added the uni and went straight to that lot.

Well, I can only think that in some game these character's files get messed up on installation.  I never had any trouble with Mitch either, so far the only ones I've ever had trouble with are the Brights, and it happens every single time.  Some of the Greeks have very low GPAs too, but they don't even HAVE a GPA when you check in SimPE!

I'd tried everything else that anyone ever suggested, including moving them out without even loading the lot, but nothing worked, which is why I decided to take a look and see if something was going on in the background.

I cant figure out why when you move a SS person in your dorm or house they cannot call the SS to go visit...they can hack grades, but there is no phone option to visit the SS House.

Well, if they have the SS member token you would certainly think they could go visit!  But maybe, once they've moved in they have to get abducted again?

Can't say I've noticed that...  gives me another thing to check out.

I did notice in SS there are a couple of sims that have a GPA of 0.0 in their first semester - I guess that's what ZZ was talking about with those other sims.  I'm not that overly fussed about making them right and perfect to graduate with a 4.0, after all, not everyone does!

Sadly, the hood with Mitch (who had just been removed from ALT and moved into LFT with my other sims) became nice and toasty last night.  When I deleted the second uni I started to get missing lot errors, which made the game virtually unplayable.  After quitting and reloading there were two copies of the same sim, both in the panel and on the lot, and even though he had already graduated he went to his final exam...  The errors stopped and most things seemed ok, but there was enough subtle weirdness that I couldn't be sure of.

I declared that hood toast and started over again last night.

Oh, what a shame!  And you can't even eat the toast!

Actually, I agree with you, not everyone does graduate summa cum laude ( or in UK terms, a First) but it just seems unfair that it should be these three, who are always prepared to work hard - now the Greeks deserve (if not to be kicked out) at least to end up with what over here would be Unclassified!

I realised that's what you meant.  I moved some in in previous games, but I can't remember now if they had the phone option or not.  I think I might have noticed if they didn't, though, and wonder if it's an OFB thing?

Dude, Necromancy is really bad M'kay! When a body has been sitting for around two years, it's probably in your better interest to not dig it back up.
On a side note. Get a real cd crack and you won't have to be online and connected to Ea to run your game.

I had relevant new information to give to this topic. I'm not looking for a nocd hack. I'm looking to fix this GPA meter problem.

It's not relevant new information. It's just saying you have the problem too. A new thread requesting help and asking if anyone has come up with anything since the last thread would have been more acceptable.

But the EA download manager versions are the exact same as the regular CD versions, just with the security set to check if Download Manager can establish a connection to EA's servers, instead of checking that you have the CD/DVD in the drive. Other than that, there is no difference between the two versions of the game.

Hey, Venusy! What's with the new avatar? Some sort of story behind that? What happened to the Municipality?

Untrue. EAxis download manager version phones home every time, thus transmitting all of your personal information on your computer back to its EAxis managers. It is evil spyware. Do not use that version!

Well, I've been playing an ARR'd copy of the first Phoenix Wright game recently, and since the current HOP invasion of RL makes me feel like banging my head against a wall repeatedly, it was obvious what to do next. I'll change it back after the outcome of the Senate vote to punish MegAnne.

Doesn't the disc version do this anyway if you leave it connected to the Internet?

What a coincidence, so am I, wait is it emulated or from a cartridge?
I didn't see anywhere else in this thread any mention of people using the EA download manager version of the games and getting this nice annoying error.

Sounds like new info to me.
Which is completely irrelevant to the topic therefore you have committed Necromancy

The disc version may occasionally try, but unlike the downloaded version, it doesn't cease functioning if you prevent it from doing so.

Actually, I think there is both. There is a guy at work who ordered this thing for his DS and now he can pirate games and play them on his DS. My memory is horrible, I wish that I could remember what it's called, as I would be very interested in acquiring one for myself. Ahh well, time to work on my google-fu. I would like to play the second Phoenix game and there is a third coming out sometime soon.

Morriganrant is right, I use a R4DS for all my DS ARRing.

I might get one of those however I've been using a PC to play NDS games with an emulator, forgotten what it's called though.
I might save some money for a DS then find out where R4DS are sold at.
