Sims 2 download
There are certain things you must keep in mind before downloading it.
- The program auto-launches itself once you begin playing via Origin or by clicking on it on desktop.
- Origin is required only for downloading the game and not afterwards for playing it, not even the Sims 2 disc.
- You can sue Origin’s browser to chat and for other things as the in-game feature reinforces the program.
- Also, SecuRom is an integral part which comes with the collection. You’d need the internet for the first time you start the program to verify your UC code. Otherwise, it can work without internet.
- The loading screen would display ‘Fun with Pets’ as it is the latest and last update.

- A black screen might appear when you open the game for the first time but be patient as it’d run smoothly from next time.

- Read the ‘Resolution change.txt’ file given in the ‘Game Files’ folder if you are unable to change the resolution from 800×600 to any other. If they require the administrator permission, move your file to the desktop, make the changes and restore it to its original place.
