Just installed a storebought Sims 2. My specs meet those of EA's: XP pro - service pk 2 512m of ram pentium 4 direct x 9 - updated radeon 9000 - drivers updated updated sound drivers but everytime I go to run the game it gets to the end of the EA games logo and then freezes with an error message :"The application has crashed. The application will now terminate." I've tried uninstalling, reinstalling, restarting, shutting down antivirus programs, shutting down background processes, changing resolutions, changing colors, changing compatibility, but it just doesnt want to work. Any suggestions?
Service Pack 2 might do it =P.
you need to get a cd crack, it seems that loading the game with the disk is most of the problem.
