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

Create-a-Sim name menu freezes

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Major
  • Description: The Sims hangs when you reach the menu to name your Sim in the Create-a-Sim menu.
  • Workaround: Make sure you are under GSdx9 and press F9 to use software mode and quickly enter the name and information for your Sim. Chances of crashing are lowered, but still has a very high chance of crashing in the next menu.

Dream House crashes

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Major
  • Description: Game crashes upon completing the dream house level.
  • Workaround: There is currently no known way to work around this.
