Don't forget to reinstall and defrog before nuking.  Reinstall several times, just to make sure the evil sprits are truely gone.

Option 3 is my choice.  I had hoped that Maxis would have the stand alone patch out, so my family wouldn't have to ask me what I wanted for my birthday.  I'll admit I bought Universiity the day it came out.  I installed it and didn't have any problems for two months--then the bugs showed up.  Even if there was the stand alone patch, I want to wait and see what the problems are.

I chose 2. Not to stroke Pescado's ego /giggle but also because his fixes actually fixes my game. As does Jeff's fixes and I will wait to see from both of these 2 gents.

But not only because of that. I will also wait to see if all the new meshes, the recolors any the exisiting hacks/game fixes become compatible. I have sooo much crap in my downloads folder that I just can't play without. And anyway. My game wont explode not getting Nightlife right away it comes out. And neither will my head.

There's some other good-looking games coming out next month.  Nightlife can wait.  More specifically, it can wait until I'm satisfied that I can play it without tearing my hair out.  I answered 3 though, because I pledged not to buy Nightlife until a standalone patch is released by Maxis, and I intend to stick to my guns Smiley

I chose one, but like a few others have said it's a mix between one and two.

Or more like: 'I want to get it quick but I'm not sure if I'll be able to immediately. And I want to see if there are any fixes before that.'  Wink

I'm not worried about having UNI patched, because with the the hacks it's actually working properly, I'm just going to wait to see what new madness Nightlife will be up to.

Besides, the patch they made for Sims 2 is was not compatable with Uni. Had to install Sims 2 to get rid of the patch before I installed Uni, and then Uni has it's own glitches.

I've told my husband don't worry about Nightlife until Christmas. That should give JM and Jeff (or Jeffs) time to fix it for us.

I'd love to get it right away, but doubt I'll be able to squeeze it in the old budget. If I am lucky I'll get it for Christmas. I tell myself this is for the best, after all most of the bugs should have fixes available by then.

I chose 2, but it is mix between 2 and 3. I want to make sure it'll be okay to install Nightlife with my regular neighborhood without having to fear explosion. I'll see which downloaded hacks/items I need to replace or remove before attempting it.

I am also holding out in the hopes that Maxis will come through with that patch. It's waaaaay overdue already. However, my confidence in Maxis as far as patches are concerned is slipping, and I wouldn't be surprised if we DON'T end up with anything.

I chose 2. I also have too much stuff that might/might not be compatible with NL, so I'm adopting the wait and see attitude.

Aside from that, I don't have it in my budget anyways, so I'll put it on my Christmas/Birthday list. I haven't bought a single sim game myself, why deny my family/friends the opportunity to get me NL as a present as well :D

That's strange, because Alcohol 120% and Daemon Tools which are FAR more evil programs seem to not affect my game at all.  Roll Eyes
OK. I can't load Sims2 with Alcohol 120%, Clone CD or Daemon tools installed on my system. My Nero, came with the burner & is maybe 2 yrs old, works fine, sims2 doesn't comment.

My roomie had the same problem when he first got the game (he had Nero, Clone CD, Alcohol, etc.). He ended up getting a no CD crack to work around it because there was no way he was taking anything off with all the CD burning he does.
The only no CD crack I saw, disables the build mode, which kind of wipes out a lot of the game for me.

I think it has something to do with the SafeDisc protection which specifically bans Nero, Clone CD and Roxio, which is ridiculous considering that anyone who buys a computer these days with a burner purchases one of these programs in order to use it.
Yes, one of the reasons I use burning software is to make a backup copy of all my PURCHASED CDs. As it is, I don't even have a full backup set of Sims1, from Hot Date on the CDs won't copy properly. I've had no success with sims2 and am just fairly religious about putting them away when not playing. I must have a go with Virtual CD and see if I can do it that way.

I can understand their (EA's) need to prohibit copyright infringement, but I don't see where that gives them the right to dictate to the paying customer what programs he/she can keep on his/her own computer.
I was utterly furious the first time this message came up. Who the fuck do EA think they are, dictating what I can and can't have installed on my own PC?!?

Ontopic at last: I won't be buying till October, I signed a pledge to say I'd wait for the end of the financial quarter in protest at the lack of a standalone patch for uni. The profit margin is all EA are interested in, and given I know I'll buy the EP at some point, I may as well buy at advantage for me and a disadvantage for EA.

I will probably buy it eventually, after it's been on Ebay for a while and I can get a decent used copy from Timbuktu or something.  I'm saving my pennies for Zelda:  Twilight Princess if it ever comes out!  Groan!

heh heh,

I will buy University (which still looks excruciatingly boring and system draining, but I'm tired of having to forgo many of the coolest hacks and mods) when Nightlife comes out and it's selling for closer to what it's worth.
Since I actually want  Nightlife, I will buy it once I get University fixed, by which time Nightlife should have enough improvements available to make it playable.

mines on order, it always seems like they work ok for a while, so hopefully i'll be free and clear for a bit. and i don't have tons of custom stuff so its easy to remove temporarily.

I'm going to buy it, but I won't install it until I learn how many characters it adds.  If it will put me over the 800 character mark, I won't be able to install it until some fixes are created.  I hope it won't add too many characters, but I don't hold out much hope.  Sigh.

I preordered it today... well, I'm not going to complain at getting money off it, bringing it down to more what it's probably worth (14 Tongue)

However, being in the UK, I'm hoping a certain lip ripping king will have fixed the worst bugs by the time it comes out here... though that might be asking too much, in which case I'll play it on my partner's computer, so mine will be fine when his explodes.

I'm getting it the minute it's available locally - (I don't do pre-orders, it seems I've heard too many stories of it not being worth it for all the hassles) - and patience is not a virtue of mine. I know it will probably be broken -  but I'm like a kid at Christmas, I have to see what all the new thingies are and what they do, and I have to see it NOW. Luckily (?) I will be back in the full swing of work in September, so I won't have a ton of time to play, so hopefully I will be behind everyone else in bug-discovery. That's what happened with the jump bug, everyone was getting it before me because I hadn't logged enough hours in the game, and I was able to avoid it until the fix came out.

Yep, Twilight Princess is on my list next to Nightlife as soon as Americans endure and identify the bugs Wink along with Pokemon XD: Gale of Shadows.

My 12 year old is practically frothing at the mouth for NL to come out so I'm sure I will be beat into submission and get it not too long after if comes out. She will probably have me lined up at Walmart on the release date. Ok, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

After going through the hell of installing University my eagarness for expansion packs have hit the dirt.  Shocked I would buy directly whenever released but it might just stay in box until I know there aren't LFBVFS shoved in there.

I said I wasn't gonna.  But I did.  I preordered it today.  The vampires are too much to not have!  ARRGH!  I suppose this means I need to start cleaning stuff up in my downloads folder, doesn't it?   Tongue

I'll be happy to start reporting on bugs....
