Hi guys! Hopefully someone can help me, I am desperate. Few days ago I wanted to play Sims 2 UC and I did. Then I wanted to put some CC. I clicked on the icon of TS2 UC and Origin opened. I opened it through Origin and Origin closed (but it was still on taskbar). Mouse was "loading something" for a few seconds. Then Origin opened again. Nothing happened. No matter how much I click it won't launch. I went crazy. I reinstalled the game. I backup-ed the game but I left completely new fresh start of the game. It opened! But then i had some backup and i replaced it with the new one. It didn't launch. I removed all CC I've had and nothing happened either. So it's not the problem in the CC, but something other. I removed that backup and put older backup and it worked. I played it yesterday and everything was fine. I said "Okay, that other backup didn't work this one did". Today I downloaded few pieces of CC and put it in the downloads folder. I clicked on Origin (millions of times) and it again didn't work (just like other backup). I removed CC but nothing again. I am so pissed off! I really want to play the game Sad! I ran as administrator too, but it again proceeded me on Origin. I really don't know what to do. PLEASE help me. Sad

OK. Origin recently made a change to remove Securom and while it did fix the Securom issue it caused a lot of other problems. I'm pretty sure your problems are part of that.

What we're going to do is free the game from needing to be launched through Origin first -
1. Download No_CD version of Sims2EP9.exe .
This is the version I use so I know it doesn't have any viruses, and it works ok.

2. Then go to this folder:
\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Fun with Pets\SP9\TSBin\
and rename Sims2EP9.exe to Sims2EP9.old

3. Install the NoCD version into the folder

4. Run the game from this exe - Does it load? Does it ask for Origin?

Come back and let me know. Once we get the game going we can fix the other issues.

Hi! Sorry for late respond. I did all you told me, but it doesn't wanna load. :'( It didn't ask for origin though, it just doesn't want to launch.

Hello again! So I really wanted to fix this issue and so I searched on the internet again (I tried before but I didn't find anything useful) and this time I went to MTS (Mod the sims). There is topic where I have found exact issue I was having. If anyone has issue like mine I suggest trying this: http://modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Ga...ache_Files . I think it's very useful! So the problem I had wasn't CC or Origin but those little files that can get very big and cause problems. I was so happy when it launched! Apparently, I have to delete them often, cause game will generate those files whenever they are deleted. I hope I didn't bother you, and you can easily put this topic as solved! Big Grin (sorry for my crappy english)

Cache files... That's such a common problem, and so easy to fix... sometimes people even forget that they can be the cause of all kinds of problems.
If *my* game doesn't want to properly start, deleting those files is the FIRST thing I try, and it almost always works!
Deleting the cache files is also usually the first thing I tell people to try! But in this case it seemed just too mundane, so I kept my mouth shut. This will teach me to next time just say it!
