Game won't start
« on: 2008 November 20, 05:00:25 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Installed Freetime and no cd crack from GameBurnWorld.  Started up game and played half a dozen times.No problems. Tried to start up today and it wouldn't. 

Double click on desktop icon, nothing happens. Double click on exe itself and nothing happens.

Right click on desktop icon, select run as, asked to select account, even though I only have one. Chose current user. Game started but it was not my game. (Found second copy in shared Documents folder.) Tried running on my own account and it wouldn't start without a password, which I have never had.

Tried restarting computer, game still would not start.

Downloaded a different crack from GameCopyWorld and replaced the exe.  Still doesn't start.

Any suggestions?  I do NOT want to get Securom back on there.

First, you must put on these:



Then, go into your My Documents>EA Games>The Sims 2 folder and delete the file named 'groups.cache'.  Run game.

Sadly I couldn't get the pants to stretch enough to get them on.  Which is a good thing as far as the sanity of my neighbors is concerned.

Anyway, I went ahead and deleted the groups.cache and LO, the game started with no problems.  Thankee, thankee. 

Does anyone know what causes that file to go blooie so often?  I've had it cause crashes during loading  but never completely prevent starting before.

What I was wondering was what causes that file to get corrupted so easily.  What's in it? What does it do?

As for corrupting me, Hmmmm, I am way past tight pants.   Grin

ROFL - anything else you want to explain, Emma?  Is there any connection to why your sim always spews hearts when simPescado walks by?  Shocked

Oh, gruesome death to multitudinous types of enigmatic Emmas!  It is not corruption, it is called *redemption*, and the path to *salvation*!  For some, at least, who are worthy, and who have not been abusing cheesecake.

I'm pretty sure those pants would be a sure sign that someone is going to Hell in some more... uptight religions.

Now this sounds like an interesting religion. Details?  I might want to be an acolyte.

Now this sounds like an interesting religion. Details?  I might want to be an acolyte.

The Sacred Order and Temple of What Might Eventually Be Beyond Mere Hot Pants is always ready to accept new members into the fold. 

It is a simple thing, really.  All members strive for certain enlightenment.  This divinely inspired illumination is only realized through meditation and contemplation of the sacred mysteries revealed through the hot pants.  The secret mysteries expose unto the properly educated initiate the inescapable and ineffable truth of all things concealed in nature by the power and enigma of hot pants.

Cult Church members work to advance the cause of the temple, hopefully by bringing in many suitable, nubile candidates (male or female) that are adequately and quite righteously attired in proper hot pants.  This is a key component of the movement, you see, because for many people, these sublime mysteries as I have already promised can simply never be understood. (Along with most other, more ordinary things.) These unfortunates can still do their part for the rest of us by competently exhibiting the holy symbol of our cause, thereby allowing the rest of us ready focus for contemplation and transcendence beyond the base, mundane, material concerns shrouded by the mysteries.

You see here I have already revealed to you some of what might be considered hearsay you may not understand.

Hopefully, if you are interested, you might show more aptitude at recruiting than other members.  Everyone wants to join, of course, but no one wants to wear the sacred hot pants, or bring in new members with the proper qualities to wear them. (By qualities it is meant no otherwise obvious useful ones)  This is causing an unacceptable obstruction to the attainment of righteous, transcendent glory.  Naturally, if you just want to model the hot pants, that is always acceptable.

There is nothing uptight about this religion, except the uniform!
