I've d/l a few copies of The Sims (the original) and every single one that has come down has been named:
I've specifically looked for files that DON'T have that filename but when I open them they all have the above filename.
I open the ziped file, read the .nfo file and it says the following
"Unrar,click REG file,run unpack.bat to extract sounds,run SIMS.EXE to start."
Now, I've clicked the reg file (no probs there) and run unpack.bat (no probs there either).
What does 'unrar' mean? Is it relevent to the instalation of the sims?
Cos...... none of these files seem to work! The Maxis screen comes up, then the blue 'The Sims' screen but thats it, am I missing something out here? Do I need to install a crack? If so how do I do that?
Sorry if this all seems a bit dim, been trying to get this sucker for my 13 year old daughter for 3 days!!!
can anyone out there help me?
