Sims 2 official update(patch)...install problem:(

Hello everyone..

Does anyone managed to install this new update (patch) that can be downloaded from official Sims2 website?

I'm using The Sims 2 v1.0 [MULTI] No-DVD/Fixed EXE ..that works prefectly fine!
could it be that I need original Sims2.exe or there is a patch for this new update?

Thanx in advance

P.S: Sims2 official thread is closed so I opened this topic.

Yes you need the original exe. Either copy it over, if you backed it up, or if you didnt back it up, reinstall from the original discs again.

Thumbs down

If you use the old crack then there is no need to upgrade.
Old crack doesn't activate the newer changes

Build mode doesn't work

I have a question, I hope I didn’t choose the wrong tread.
Anyway, I have Sims 2 on 4 CDs I got serial and crack with it. Everything works fine except the Build mode, it doesn’t work at all.
Is there some patch or another crack that will fix that?

Thanks up front

Where actually can I download the official updat for The sims 2? Christine?

edit: never mind I googled http://thesims2.ea.com/update/


And what is the 'Body Shop' download (106 MB) what you can download at megagames.com on the patches page. Does that update work with the fixed DVD executable from GWC?

How to update your CD version Sims2 Backup copy to 1.1

How to update your CD version Sims2 Backup copy to 1.1


This is for the 4 CD version, eventually converted to DVD and using the Money fixed DVD executable

To update your sims backupcopy succesfully to 1.1 do the following:
(note: after this you'll need a new fixed 1.1 executable that isnt out yet, but the purpose of this is to make your backup ready for a later update.)
But you can also use the CD1 mini-image and Daemon Tools with the version 1.1 update instead of a new fixed exe, I tested this and works!

-Download "thesims2_update_cd.exe" (only the cd version will work, even though you converted your 4CD's to a DVD installation so dont try the dvd version update.


-Create an image of the original Sims2 disc4 (labeled Sims2_4) using Alcohol 120% and select the Safedisc2/3 profile in Alc. 120%

-Mount the image in Daemon Tools 3.47 (press ctrl and shift on your keyboard to prevent the sims2 from starting up if you have installed it)

-Also copy back the original Sims2 executable from the original Sims2_1 CD to your installed program files folder or the update installation will halt on a error.
So overwrite the Money fixed exe again with original.

That's it, the update is installing correctly so you only need an image of CD4 where the update asks for when you start it.

So on your backup copy place a folder with an image of CD4, a copy of the original Sims2.exe and Daemon Tools 3.47 to be able to update later. Only thing thats needed later is a new fixed 1.1 exe or ofcourse the mini-image of CD1.

Note: Im not sure yet if a stripped or mini image of CD4 will work as I dont know if the update installation just checks the CD4 or needs also files from it to copy over during updating. But an image of CD4 is only 550 MB and a backupcopy on DVD of all your 4 Sims2 CD's is about 2.70 GB so there is space enough left to put a full image on it in a update folder.

cheers, E.
