Ultimate Collection Work Arounds and Mods
« on: August 25, 2014, 06:57:29 AM »
Sims 2 Hack Conflict Detection Utility for Sims 2 Ultimate Collection.

1. Make a new folder in EA Games called "The Sims 2". (With our the quotes.)
2. In the "The Sims 2" folder (a) make a new folder called Downloads and copy all your mods form your downloads to it or (b) copy in to here your Downloads folder from UC.
3. Run HCDU.

As for the mods from MATY you need to use AL ones:

For Inteenimater you must use AL/M&G one.

Now for Windows 8 and 8.1, some players have no problems at all so for those you don't need to do this.

To get mods to work in 8/8.1 some players need to turn off "User Account Control" and change both the programs folder and My Doc. folder for the UC to read and write other wise the OP system will stop mods from working.

1. Disconnect from the internet then turn off "User Account Control". *(Or UAC.)
2. Restart your computer.
3. Check after restart that UAC is turned off.
4. Change Program folder for UC to read and write.
5. Some times it takes a restart for this to take effect.
6. Change My Doc. for UC to read and write.
7. Some times it takes a restart for this to take effect.
8. Now try your mods and if they work then restart your computer.
9. Check again that mods are working, if so then turn back on UAC.

Restore Sims 2 Store Edition in Ultimate Collection.

How do I install CC.
Put most things in Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection/Downloads

For any mods which need to be put in the game's install folder, like catalogue reorganisers, put them in C:/Program Files (x86)/Origin Games/The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection/Fun with Pets/SP9/...

Don't forget that for object recolours to work, you need to install CEP. The automatic installer won't work, so you'll have to follow the manual instructions.
