PROBLEMS load mods and packs in folder download
huntersouls, please correct me if I'm wrong.
the reason why is probably because you look in the wrong place, and are adding things in the wrong place.
What folder are you adding your CC in?
The folder it should be is
\My Documents\Origin Games\The Sims 2\Downloads\
I don't know whether Clean Installer works with the Ultimate Collection, but if it isn't putting it into that location, then I suspect not.
ULTIMATE COLLECTION FIX - IF YOU'RE NOT GETTING ALL YOUR FILES (including log folders etc)
(This is from EA via Marka93 and MMJJSense)
1. Check to make sure the language you are installing it as, and the language of the account is the same.
2. It may be that your PC can't cope with the 'TM' symbol. This is EA's fix for it:
Just incase it is needed for some windows don't know how to handle the "TM" and it needs to be removed.
Only do this if you have a problem with your game.
Try this! I got it from a different forum at answers.ea.com (credit goes to MMJJSense) with someone who had a similar issue:
you need to open regedit (Window+R) and open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE then SOFTWARE
For 32 - Bit : Find EA GAMES folder and open the sims 2... change the Display Name... Delete the ™ out... and the problem is solved...
For 64- Bit : Open Wow6432Node then.. Find EA GAMES folder and open the sims 2... change the Display Name... Delete the ™ out... and the problem is solved...
Before it's should look like this : The Sims 2™ Ultimate Collection
After : The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection
like in that link say "If a mod is not working, the first thing to do is make sure you have Smarter EP Check in your Downloads folder...
"NEWS July 25, 2014 - My official statement about my mods and the Ultimate Collection: I don't care. I've been screwed enough by EA that...I have seen no evidence to support the community's claim that the UC uses AL/M&G code so I have no idea if my mods will work, and no interest in finding out."
i think need this "Smarter EP Check" (http://www.cyjon.net/node/323)
