Problems Installing Sims 2 Bodyshop Starter Pack
I downloaded the sims 2 bodyshop starter pack 3 tiimes and i installed it. when i downloaded it i extracted it to the sims 2 downloads folder. i opened the body shop and still there were no extra items in it. i aslo extracted it in the bodyshop downloads folder and nothing. Can someone please tell me what im doing wrong. And all the downloads end with sims2skin. I been trying to get this to work for months and never got the right answers to solve this problem. I hope this site is the one that can help me. Thanks in advance. Another thing
when i downloaded it i use a download manager and it has its own folder. but i extract it to the downloads folder. I would download the starter pack, then extract it to the downloads folder. then i cllick the the starter pack icon and it has an install option. so i click install, within 2 seconds its installed. i go open bodyshop and nothing has changed. thats basically all i do. here's the addy. http://www.fileorama.com/games/The-...-pack/22319.htm well from one of the sites.

Installing Sims 2 NightLife (exp.) on previous Sims 2 DVD Edition.
I am trying to Install The Sims 2 Nightlife expansion, after main installition; a Sims 2 Updater appears and asks to insert The Sims 2 CD 4 into the Drive. But in my case, with the DVD Edition, I only have 2 discs (Game, and Bonus) I have tried placing both discs in the drive, and cannot get passed the "OK" button.

Any help greatly apprecieated.

you should download and run the first one, it does the installation for you so you shouldn't need to unzip anything. if it doesn't work im at a loss at what to do

this is a problem with downloading things, for some reason they seem to mess the game up. i dont know how to fix any problems with downloaded material other than just deleting them.

You have to go into "My Documents" find the EA Games folder, click on the Sims 2 folder, find the folder that says "Downloads" and delete the things you downloaded from in there. I would move them to another folder just in case that's not the problem. Then you can put them back later.
