Good thing we're still around, then!

Indeed! Like it or not, we're going to foil their plan! :biglaugh:

One of the mods over at MTS said they will have the patches and home crafter when EA shuts down the site.

As far as I'm concerned, that won't stop us from doing the same.

Lack of official support won't stop people. Other than patches and HomeCrafter we've never really had official support!

BO, here's some ideas....
Use that utility to back up your registry.
Get a new hard drive, install as primary, or repurpose a drive you already have.  Move flaky drive to secondary..
Copy the stuff from the flaky drive bit by bit,so you know what it was doing when it hangs.

I'll ask more people for advice.

Also, booting up in safe mode and than attempting to use a system restore to a time before this started might help.  Big might, but still.

If it's the physical/electronic aspects of the drive, not the O/S, restoring the O/S won't help much.

Actually, there is a way of doing a System Repair which leaves files intact, but you have to be very, very careful.  It tends to move stuff about, and hide stuff, but it would work if the problem is bad sectors, at least for long enough to get the stuff copied.

The 2 links in the frist tread by Sleepycat needs to be change for they both dont work or there not there anymore.

Here is the link for the MTS page with the patches if needed.

I've added the new link, Mark.  I think it would be polite to leave it to Sleepycat to edit out anything unneeded in her original post.

I've edited it to take out the link to the official EA support page that I added a while ago.

Found another repository though: BeyondSims - The Sims 2 - downloads

Much as EA want us to switch there are still quite a few of us around who don't like having our arms twisted!

Indeed! We fight back, finding other sources of that which EA withholds from us, or even creating such alternative sources. Our arms will not be twisted. We need them straight!

They do tend to work better that way.
