Before running setup of this repack, make sure u have uninstalled your every Sims 2 game including their registry entries , if any on your system, make sure there is no ‘EA Games’ folder in your ‘Documents'(‘My Documents’ for xp users) folder after uninstalling your previous Sims 2 game as ‘EA Games’ contains ‘The Sims 2’ folder consisting of cache and mods of your previous game which could lead to crashing of the game….This folder will be regenerated for this repack after 1st time u run the game…….
DISABLE YOUR ANTIVIRUS BEFORE RUNNING ‘Setup.exe’ (IMPORTANT) as the antivirus will mark ‘setup’ as a suspicious file,, making it unable to launch setup or may run it but with some glitches,, same for uninstall…..(For avast users: Disable DeepScreen in antivirus settings)…

The game will always show ‘Mansion and Garden Stuff’ loading screen as it is the latest expansion, everything is included in it……
First time you load each world, loading takes time, please be patient, It’s like running 10 games at once(don’t assume it has frozen) just wait & let it load…..
Always open the game using ‘Run as administrator’ to avoid crash/savegame issue. If it still crashes, lower the graphics settings from options ingame and make sure you meet the system requirements.
NOTE: Change ‘Shadows’ from high to either low or medium through the ingame graphics options , otherwise a black square will appear underneath your Sims instead of indoor shadows…
