Sim 2 Crashing - Tried A lot of Fixes

Hi everyone,

My game crashes after I load a family and play for about 2 minutes. It is a clean neighbourhood template with no corruption/conflicting hacks.

I missed out on the ultimate collection, so I'm using the disks with all the expansions and the most up to date one is mansion and garden aka ep9.

I'm running Windows 10 and I've tried most fixes I've seen to fix the crashing:

Hack Conflict Detection Utility
CFF
DEP
Checked CC
George 4GB patch (although I am unsure if I should be using this as I have 4GB RAM)

Despite having George I only get 3956MB memory and 624-1300MB free memory and the most recent crash was on 624MB free memory and the one before that 1300MB. I'm wondering if this is because of my 4GB of RAM? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

With only 4GB of actual memory in your machine, I'm not surprised that George can make only 3956MB available to you.
Of that 3956MB, Win10 still needs a generous amount, and the integrated graphics card is set to use up to 2GB, too.

TS2 without any expansions might possibly run in what little memory remains, but it would not run well.
TS2 with all expansions, though? Sorry, but there is not a snowball's chance in hell that you'll get that to work. Don't count on it.

For TS2 to run even half decent, you need AT LEAST 8GB of RAM, but 16GB is recommended.
Sorry, but your system is most certainly NOT fit for this game.

Thank you so much for replying. I'm really not computer savvy.

Sigh, I'll have to buy a computer sooner rather than later with 16GB of RAM.
