PostSubject: Home of ACR and InTEEN "NOT" closing   Archived Sims Schmoozing Topics EmptyWed Dec 21, 2011 4:33 am

I'm not really sure where to post this. If I'm posting in the wrong place Sugah, my apologies...please feel free to rap me on my knuckles (not too hard please) and move this elsewhere.

I've just learned that TwoJeff's the creator of ACR which I know many, many players use...is closing his site in Janaury. verklempt

Just wanted to alert everyone in case they wanted to download a backup of ACR, and any or all of his other awesome mods and must-have fixes. TJ has been one of the longest serving modders in the community, and has made his work available for free with the greatest of patience and kindness.

ACR in my opinion has made the game far more playable, and I'm sure is the reason why so many of us are still playing after all these years (seven in my case!). TJ's mods and fixes are all finished, stable and haven't needed updating in years, and he has lost interest and is not interested in TS3 so he's slipping away.

A great loss to the community...but fortunately we have wonderful folks like Sugah's and family to keep the fires of TS2 burning brightly! Archived Sims Schmoozing Topics 765640

His site, Simbology, is also the home of the famous (or infamous) InTEENinator.

UPDATE: Good news, Simbology's mods: ACR and InTEEN and TwoJeffs' other mods are being hosted by Leefish. Though no longer supported, at least they'll still be available.

You can find them HERE.

FURTHER UPDATE: The site moderators and a couple of long time members have come together, and have taken over the administration of Simbology with TJ's blessing, who'd handed over the domain to them and all of that. You can log on as before, using your old passwords and everything looks the same.

All of his mods and inTEEN are available for download still. Yaaaaaaay to the wonderful folks who were determined not to see another popular TS2 site fall by the wayside. dancintrio

The closing of Sim 2 Sites is becoming the norm, as many just don't have the time or inclination for our favourite game. Tis the reason I am trying to become self sufficient in what I want for my game.

Indeed! And to you I am grateful. I'm also going to take a stab at recolouring clothes in the New Year, thanks to our sweet little tute...and I'm also going to try recolouring objects as well. Seems like it'll soon be up to us to keep the sim light shining!

Well my first recolour is on show, but with practice I slowly improved how to manipulate Gimp for what I wanted. So all it really takes is finding the right photos to manipulate into what you are trying to achieve and implement it.

We will have to convince Sugah to part with some of her knowledge on that subject.

Not in to bribery, I just ask politely, the worst answer you can get is no, but that is not normally the case.

PostSubject: Moving to a new computer   Archived Sims Schmoozing Topics EmptyThu Dec 22, 2011 10:20 am

I just moved from my (very) old computer running XP to a brand spanking new computer (Pentium i7, Radeon HD 6700, 8GB ram 1TB hard disk, biiig monitor).

The following is a product plug: I used Laplink PCMover. My computers spent all night moving stuff over an ethernet cable. My sims came up seamlessly, all my 'hoods, all my downloads, all my hacks, all my expansions - everything! Happy Simmer sunny The software and cable are around $25, Dell offered it as an extra when I ordered my new computer.

That's very useful information! I assume you're running Windows 7 on your new system. Have you noticed any difference in terms of the Sims? I know a few years back some folks discouraged people from moving to quad core, and even duo core systems because TS2 wasn't designed to take advantage of those cpus. But I haven' heard anyone say they had problems with Win 7 and the sims...yet.

I did neglect to mention that the new system was running Windows 7 (I should have, moving from XP to W7 is all the more impressive).

I'm still getting used to Windows 7 - quite a bit different from XP or any that came before. verklempt I'm optimistic. Tomorrow I'll be getting "Windows 7 - the Missing Manual" so will gradually become more informed. Archived Sims Schmoozing Topics 898330

Regarding the sims:

It's still running in 32-bit 4Gb, I have a huuuge neighborhood, with hundreds of houses and sims. Had one crash already, so a souped up 'puter can still be overloaded.

On the plus side, and I should also mention that I have a real muscle video card:

Game seems to load faster - 15 min rather than 30.
I can really max out the graphics - everything and everyone looks better.
I extended my neighborhood view from medium to large - I usually don't go back to the map but hop from house to house. I was able to transfer to a house waaaaay across the map!
The accelerated speed (at work, sleeping, studying) seems to go faster.
With my old graphics card, I used to have to stop the game to change the view. No longer.

I'm sure a lot of this is the new card (Radeon HD 6700) Archived Sims Schmoozing Topics 12612 the old one was an Nvidia 8600 No

Some of this is the new fast computer, fast hard disks, and probably minimal fragmentation of files - I'm only using 218 Gb of a Tb.

Please feel free to ask more if the above hasn't answered your questions or if you come up with more. Archived Sims Schmoozing Topics 62525

Was just kidding about the chocolate thing! sunny I'm a bit silly that way. I'm sure Sugah would be glad to share her knowledge...but she is so crazy busy these days. I'll prowl around the community and see what I come up with. If I get the hang of it, I might even give tutorial writing a try. Archived Sims Schmoozing Topics 12612

Good news about TwoJeff's mods...Leefish has kindly offered to store them at his/her site including of course InTEEN....which was also hosted at TJ's Simbology.

They won't be supported, but at least they'll still be available.

Interested persons can find them all HERE.

'Flatout like a lizard drinking' is Aussie slang for really busy.

I run Sims 2 on single, dual core and quad core with different operating systems in 32 or 64 bit. I also run them at a higher clockspeed than what they were designed to run at. Never had a problem with any of them, except taking screen captures in Win 7 64 bit.

That is very sad news, indeed. I guess we couldn't expect all of our favorite sites to stay around forever, though. I'm so glad Leefish is hosting TJ's mods. I could not play this game without several of TJ's essential mods and fixes and ACR. I also really enjoy having INTEEN in my game, as well. I hope TJ goes onto something that makes him happy.

Congrats to your new system, Mac! My husband loves the ethernet cables. They came in very handy moving stuff from computer to computer. In this household, upgrades roll downhill. Hubby upgrades and passes his old system pieces to me or the boys. In January, the middle kid will finally get his own computer, so we'll have use of the cable again!

Actually they've been further developments. Some of the site moderators and helpers who've been around from the beginning are taking it over. TJ has handed over the domain to them, and while they'll be no new mods, folks can still have access to ACR and inTEEN...and they'll continue to offer assistance and a place to hang out that's dedicated to TS2. Everything will stay the same...the name of the site, the look...everything! The three main people have even decided to pay the first year's hosting fee among themselves and everything! Yaaaaaay for dedicated TS2-ers!!! dancintrio
