Problem with modified install
« on: 2014 September 10, 22:29:44 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I installed the UC, started up the game, and had no problems. But according to MTS at this thread, http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Ultimate_Collection_FAQs#Question:_Will_my_old_neighbourhoods_work_with_UC.3F, since I had the store installed, I had to follow instructions on another site to use my saved neighborhoods. The site is this one http://www.simsnetwork.com/simpedia/the-sims-2/editions/the-sims-2/specials/restore-sims-2-store-edition-in-ultimate-collection. I followed the instructions. Since most of my games were downloads from Origin and their store download would not work (saying I didn't have Sims 2 installed), I used a University Life collection CD. When I tried to load the game, it asked for the CD then said I was running the wrong version. I did something really stupid. While I backed up the games, I spaced off backing up the registry. Is there a way to fix it so I can use the store version, or is there a way to get the correct registry which I had changed per the instructions? If not, will it correct itself if I uninstall and reinstall the game from Origin? Thanks for any help.

The use of Origin is contraindicated and not supported here. That you tried to use it is probably the start of a whole raft of problems. Your install is basically FUBAR and you should wipe and start over. There isn't any practical way we can troubleshoot your mess of install without full access to the computer, and probably not even then.
