Europe v02.00(14/06/2004), INTC, Wait Loop Detection, microVU and MTVU (for going "almost ingame"), Won't boot from CD. Works with ISO, goes through menus, I can make a Sim in "Get-A-Life" mode, but as soon the game finishes loading, it hangs on loading screen (but music keeps playing with ingame sounds too sometimes). Actually, I got "almost ingame" by enabling the cheat that unlocks the "Sim Mode", but as soon as I selected it, it hangs (see last pic).

Known Issues

  • Description: Game hangs on Create-a-Sim menu (when you enter their name in)
  • Workaround: Switch GSdx rendering under plugin settings in Video (GS) to SW DX9 mode and quickly enter through the CAS information.(Not 100% guaranteed and most likely hang on next loading screen)
