Hello, sorry if this is in the wrong spot. This is my first post, and this looked like the best spot. Is anyone else having trouble with the compatible filter not working for the past couple of days (Sims 2, IDK about others)? I've logged out/back in, cleared cache/cookies, changed settings, and nothing is working. It's not a huge deal of course, but it was a handy tool. Thanks!

@Delphy

Happening for me as well, but Sims 3 & 4 downloads seem fine.

I will choose a path that's clear- I will choose free will

...Why do I keep breaking this stuff?

Should be fixed now... I hope!

@Azamaki Can you tell us a bit more? How do you have your filters set, and what are you not seeing?

The filter is set to compatible, and I only used to see Sims3 Base game stuff. 500 Objects, I think.
Now, I added my new expansions and they only show up as single files.

When I go to "All Files" and then to "All", I can see all files with all expansions.
When I then go to "Housing" or any other subcategory, I only get certain files. (Always 938 from the base game or ONLY one expansion.)
As you can see, it's only just files with ONE expansion. Not with multiple ones.
When I enter "Requires..." and then my expansions I get the "Sorry, no downloads could be found for that search!" error message.

Look at those gifs; they show it quite good.

Hmm, the 'requires' filter acts like that for me too, I'm not sure how it's intended to work. Maybe @Delphy can shed some light on this?

@Azamaki What do you see when you use 'compatible'- can you show a screenshot?

I'm very confused about the whole "and they show up as single files". I think I'd need screenshots to figure this one out.

As for Requires... it's been so long that even I can't remember what that was supposed to do. I might just remove it entirely actually....

It's all in the Gifs I posted.

The "Single files"-thing, too.

Yeah, I can't figure out what you mean by 'single files'. Can you elaborate maybe?

Okay so I see now. The Buy Mode you chose actually does have single games listed - but thats not a problem because the threads themselves have only one game ticked. So it's not actually a bug, it's just how they where uploaded.

Check out Lots & Housing and you'll see examples of lots of EPs and SPs working fine.

As for Requires... I'm going to nuke that option soon.

Hm. But I have been a member since 2013. And I remember it being differently.
But even that "requires" option doesn't work for me. No mods show up at all. That can't be, right?
Last month when I downloaded mods, it was different, too.
