The original game gave me a headache from the concentration involved in managing your sim. My doctor advised I should quit, before I had an embolism. :D

Yeah. Don't go and answer the phone because when you come back your Sim will have lost its job and be standing in a pool of urine.

I haven't got any serious problems with the game, works fine. However, I reinstalled the game and the expansion CDs.
Some munor problems I found out yet:

1. The descriptions of some custom objects I downloaded are messed up.
2. The german translation has some errors. A few options are not translated, so I have a mix of german and english (for example it's now "go to work" instead of "zur Arbeit gehen"- I don't understand the meaning of that phrase anyway)

I too had to uninstall and reinstall again. Some of the families I had created caused it to drop back to the desktop.

However, that only got me so far. I make sure that I am running in the same resolution that I have set for the screen, I have downkloaded the latest drivers and I still get a blank screen 4 times out of 5.

When it runs, though, I haven't found anything particularly buggy with the game itself.

(BTW - this is the only game I have a problem with so I am damned sure it's not my machine)

There is a "categoriser" available that should fix the first problem.

It is the only game that works without problem. I guess I got a complement PC.
And I'm to lazy to fix the objects, they still work and it's quite amusing to have the description of another object

Stop press.

Learning from COunterglow news that NVidia has today released a new set of drivers for the G Force 2 cards, I downloaded and installed these and the game runs fine now.

So, G Force owners - get the drivers and get the addon.

So they are G-Force 2 drivers. That means I must download them now.

Links for the new GeForce2 drivers please?

RC, nicely written review. It doesn't have the same power as a Venom review of course, but it's a good review. :D
