Well, I finally got it working

I'm enjoying it, but the graphics are very patchy and game play is very slow- however it could be my computer. I also don't like the 'wants and needs' thing- it'll be an adjustment period though, I hated the original Sims originally.

I think it must be your computer dumbleedore, I had the game on my pc, but it didn't run well, now I've installed it at my boyfriends pc and it ookks great!

I really like the game, mostly because your new sims are so much more real! They really seem happy/sad/angry at some points and they behave much more like real humans. I also like the fact that you can build houses with more levels and your sims seem to have more free time because they don't need to go to the bathroom after every little snack

I've made a Hermione (based on Emma Watson) sim so if anyone likes to have Hermione walking around in your new house,but you don't feel like making one, you can download my Hermione at the official website of the sims.

Dumbleedore-I'm having trouble with installing mine too. It goes through everything and almost starts the game. Then the computer crashes!

i played the game over the weekened. I was expecting it to be a lot better. I think the graphics in the first game is better, and plus you don't get as much furniture in the 2nd. It's hard to move around too. ehhhh....i'm having second thoughts on buying the game.

My friend said that every 5 minutes it paused, and shut down. Her computer is new and the game wouldn't save when it stopped.

There was one originally but it has stopped coming up. my brother seems to think its something to do with the graphics card. Its gets to the scrolling text across the bottom of the page and then it crashes-distorting my graphics.

Wow, this is turning into a technical help thread on the SIms, and I don't even have the game! It sounds like it may be another DirectX problem, though. Did you just install it?

yeah, The sims has always neen hard on computers and mine used to crash constantly. But its seems that the game play and graphics are different on every computer. Oh well I'm happy because mine works. I know! It takes forever to schroll over but I like the camra angles and the way the camera flashes when you take a picture. You guys do know that the first sims of a new version is always going to be limited right? thats because they want to have somewhere to go from there. They need room to improve. Personally, I hope they bring th pets back. I like how you have to go to the grocery store but it seems you never have to go. ok well, when I get time to make my complete weasley family, it will run out fast.

Does anyone know how to make rosebud work? it doesn't work on mine but move_objects on/off does. I cold use some help. and aging off/on works as well. I think.

Oh my god- that is the exact sim I created for Harry and Hermione's daughter, Lily!!! Except Lily wear's the red uniform- for Gryffindor Ron's daughter, Valentina, also wears the red uniform Ron's other daughter, Rochana, is a toddler

I'm far too obsessed

It sure sounds like a help thread. Thanks Dementor Dave.
