Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

This is an entry for the updates to the original "The Sims 2" game from Maxis and its expansions. For those who somehow don't know, The Sims lets you simulate humans. You can customize their personalities, clothing, their houses, and even their jobs. It basically simulates life in a slightly unrealistic fashion. See The Sims 2 page for the actual game and links to the expansion packs and stuff packs.

Download 1 - The Sims 2 Body Shop 1.0 (June 3, 2005)
md5 : b2036ec5d0df8539ce5d847419998b84
alternative download link : http://download.nvidia.com/downloads/nZone/demos/sims2bodyshop.dmg

----

Download 2 - The Sims 2 Combo Patch (December 14, 2007)
Includes The Sims 2 Rev F, The Sims 2 University Rev A, The Sims 2 Nightlife Rev A, The Sims 2 Pets Rev A and also :

The Sims 2 Pets Rev B

The Sims 2 Seasons Rev A

If you download and install this update, then there is no need to download the following updates.

----

Download 3 - The Sims 2 Combo Patch (November 14, 2007)
Includes more or less the same changes as the December combo patch. However, this patch is flawed and will break your Sims 2 install on OS X Tiger. Please do not install this patch, and use December 14, 2007 combo patch instead. This patch is only kept here for archiving purposes.

----

If you did not want to download Combo Patch (if you want to have an older version of The Sims 2), you need to apply the following patches :

Download 4 - The Sims 2 Rev F (July 19, 2007)

Download 5 - Update to The Sims 2 - Nightlife 1.2 Rev. A (June 2, 2006)

Download 6 - Update for The Sims 2 - Pets 1.6 Rev. A (April 15, 2007)

Download 7 - Update for The Sims 2 - University 1.1 Rev. A (June 2, 2006)

----

If you applied the previous patches (but not any of the Combo Patches) AND if you are on 10.4 and using QuickTime 7.6, then you need to apply one (and only ONE) of the following patches. The patch you have to apply depends on what expansion packs you do have installed :

Download 8 - The Sims 2 Rev F - QuickTime 7.6 fix
Apply this patch if you : only possess the base game (no expansion pack !).

Download 9 - The Sims 2 Bon Voyage - QuickTime 7.6 fix
Apply this patch if you have : Bon Voyage installed.

Download 10 - The Sims 2 Seasons - QuickTime 7.6 fix
Apply this patch if you have : Seasons installed but not Bon Voyage.

Download 11 - The Sims 2 Pets - QuickTime 7.6 fix
Apply this patch if you have : Pets installed but not Bon Voyage, Seasons.

Download 12 - The Sims 2 Open for Business - QuickTime 7.6 fix
Apply this patch if you have : Open for Business installed but not Pets, Bon Voyage, Seasons.

Download 13 - The Sims 2 Nightlife - QuickTime 7.6 fix
Apply this patch if you have : Nightlife installed but not Open for Business, Pets, Bon Voyage, Seasons.

Me, can't wait out for the 64-Bit release. Hope, the "near future" is gone soon.

Fixed the page to note that.

Thanks for the Mac AppStore editing.

This made me to take another look at this entry.

Unfortunately, as for now, the Mac AppStore version has been made for 32-Bit Intel only. Luckily, the entry mentions "A 64-Bit version comes in the near future."

Most of macgamefiles patches links were dead, so I felt free to add them here. Indeed, Combo patches (November and December 2007) were not present here (Macgamefiles redirect to Rev F dmg, which is not Combo patch), along with QuickTime 7.6 fixes for 10.4 users (who are not using any of the Combo patches) and The Sims 2: Body Shop.

Nice to see the Update Uploads, but will EA insist of removing them?
We know, these files only work with the original game already installed.

The download links for the Updaters at Macgamefiles dont work for me !
I found the files at Aspyr by adding the updater's file name to (http://files.aspyr.com/support/*). Aspyr is abandoning support for Mac OS X 10.6 and earlier. So I archived the files here for the future.
