Annoying Live Mode Tooltip Removed from Uni Arcade Games
« on: 2008 July 15, 15:31:17 »

The two Uni arcade games have an annoying tooltip that shows up when hovering over them. (See the picture above.) Normally those tooltips should only appear in Buy/Build Mode, but they appear even in Live Mode for Uni arcade games.

This annoyance is now fixed. Mouseover tooltips will no longer appear in Live Mode for two Uni arcade games.

Compatible with AL.


If you put it in your Downloads folder, all objects fixed by this mod will bear annoying custom star in their thumbnails, and delete button in the catalog will be enabled.
Instead of Downloads folder, make a subfolder in the following location and put the files there.

 C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 <Your Latest EP>\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins
 (or the corresponding folder on your system if your game is not installed in C:\Program Files)

 e.g. If your latest EP is Apartment Life, the location will be like this.

 C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Apartment Life\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins

If there are other Maxis objects that suffer from this glitch, please let me know. I'll include them in this fix as well. If they are from later stuff packs, separate fix would be needed.
A similar fix for two Teen Style Stuff objects afflicted with the same glitch is also available. (FT version | AL version)
Some old custom objects suffer from this glitch too. Numenor gave me information on how to remove Live Mode tooltip.

As for the other custom objects that may suffer for this glitch, the problem can be easily fixed opening the package with SimPE and editing the Object Data (Raw Data tab): locate field 0x002B ("Tooltip Name Type"), in section "Miscellaneous" and set it to ZERO.


 Numenor for information on tooltip removal
 Menaceman44 for bringing this issue into my attention
