After i downloaded two things yesterday (i think it was liz's white kitchen and via veronaville starters) whenever i try to go into a neighborhood it freezes,will i have to reinstall my game or take half my downloads out and see what the problem is?

i'm trying to repair my game via origin so i hope that'll do something.

EDIT:repairing did nothing.

Rename the "...Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\" folder (to something like "The Sims 2 Old"), and run the game (fastest way to "reinstall" without actually reinstalling, plus you'll stilll have a backup of your original game that you can go back to).

After you've done that, see if these two downloads cause the same problem. If they do, remove them from your old game.

Recolors rarely cause problems, but it's still possible. If the lots had any CC in them, the CC could potentially be the problem. Either that or the lot files themselves (you should be able to remove lot files, either by deleting the lots in their temporary installed form in the Teleport folder where they go before you run your game, or (I think) from the LotCatalog folder if they've been fully installed. I'm not entirely sure it's safe to delete from the LotCatalog folder, but someone can probably tell below if it isn't).

yes

bear in mind that the game creates 2 folders while installation (because the game does not understand multiuser concept) - that with files inside - is the real one, other is just dummy, leave it alone.
