THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I've given up on the torrents, and gone for rapid share too. Should have it within 2 hours, as opposed to 2 days.

Problem with places like rapidshare for games is you need to have it downloaded yesterday.  The files get deleted so fast.

I hate RapidShare, though. I always get one file and it tells me to wait an hour. Plus, the last time I was there, it wouldn't take the letters they make you type in the box no matter how many times I tried.

I'm getting around 55 KB/s but it's still saying 1 day or more to finish. I might have to go to the RapidShare one.


I have a premium account since we download alot of movie series, movies and software.  Saves an incredible amount of time so it's worth the money.

I've got 7 rar files downloading at once, each getting 180kbps. Some times I think torrents are hit and miss, if you can get a seeder then great; if not, you're screwed.

Why do all of these downloads appear to be different sizes?  Mininova is 4.8 gigs; Demonoid is 5.6 gigs; the Rapidshare ones with sizes listed are around 5 gigs.

Ahh.

I think I'm just going to stick it out with Mininova; I'm in no hurry.

I'm getting between 400 to 500kbs all up.  Not to mention my stupid net keeps fluctuating so its going fast and slow.  I think i need to redownload a few files.  There's always some of these stupid files that stall out near 90% and never continue again.

I got impatient and grabbed the torrent from TorrentSeed. I'm getting speeds from that one between 500-600 kb/s. I hope EA kept their word and didn't put SecuROM in the game.

Cake is a lie, NFO says SecuROM.

Well, I'm definitely not installing it for a while, but since it seems legit and my neighbors have kindly left their wireless unencrypted, why not?  Mutorrent says it should be finished downloading in just five short weeks!   Roll Eyes

Does your father know you are indulging in this kind of unmitigated internets and copyright violation? What would he say? FOR SHAME!

It really has SecuROM? Damn. I was really looking forward to playing tonight. But I ended up wiping my entire hard drive and reinstalling Windows the last time I got rid of SecuROM (I already had to do this to install a new motherboard and processor) and that's not an option again. And I don't know how to remove SecuROM the normal way because I don't want to mess with the registry. I certainly don't want it again, though. I ended up having to replace a DVD burner already after installing BV.

rohina -

He knows I mooch other people's bandwidth, and doesn't seem to care - after all, he's not paying for it.  If he has a problem with my illegally downloading TS3, I don't care.  I'm not in his house, I'm not using his connection, I'm not using his equipment.  He has absolutely nothing to do with what I do in my own apartment on my own computer.

ShortyBoo, I believe the torrent comes with a no-CD crack.  Use that instead of the exe - tada!  No SecuROM.

Registry editing is the only way.

Thank you. I'll check that out. The last two TS2 EPs I downloaded didn't have the No CD cracks right away (I got them later at GCW) so I figured this would be the same way.

@Rhayden: Actually I did get rid of it after wiping my hard drive and reinstalling Windows. But I wouldn't do that again because backing up all my files was way too much work. So editing the registry isn't the only way. I don't have SecuROM on my PC now, thanks to No-CD cracks.

Well, as Pescado is apparently already running the game and giving his expert opinion on it, I think that is a pretty clear sign that there is a way to run the game right now without invoking SecuROM.  When AL came out, on the other hand, I think it was a while before there was a no-CD.

That's a terrible way to get SecuRom when there are far easier methods. AFAIK, SecuRom is installed when you install the Sims; using the no-CD cracks prevents it from being installed AGAIN.

I thought it was installed by running the game using the EAxis executable - at least, I installed AL, used only a no-CD, and have noticed no signs of SecuROM on my computer, without ever having to clean any registries.

Alrighty, so this thread is officially over now that we have some real horror to gaze upon. And remember, THE GOGGLES, THEY DO NOTHING!
