the sims  
Last night, after my internet connection died for some reason, I decided to play The Sims instead. I went to install the Superstar Expansion pack, but there was a file missing, and the game wouldn't work. So I uninstalled it. And it uninstalled the WHOLE GAME. As in, the original Sims game & the other EP's & all my families & everything.

I'm not sure I can be bothered to even try again. I barely had enough patience the first time around to get things set up. Also I was most looking forward to playing the Superstar EP, but it's my own fault for using a burnt copy. I have 2 new EP's (Hot Date & Vacation) that have both only been played once, but it's not even worth selling them on ebay because there are so many already listed and none of them are going for very much at all. Gah.

I think I should have stuck to saving for Sims 2 instead.

I still remember the horrors of trying to install Superstar. It worked after something like, six hours.
Perhaps I could send you my EPs? I'm never going to use them again I don't think. But on the otherhand, you need Sims 2!

if you really want the sims 2 i'm looking to get rid of mine. my ex had purchased it for me to play on his computer (it doesn't work on mine). i only got to play it for like, ten hours before we broke up, and now it's just sitting in my desk drawer. original packaging and all! let me know; i'm probably going to try and ebay it in a few days.

i was hoping to get $20 (plus shipping of course)

Depending on how much shipping would be (hopefully under $10, can we find out somehow? Postage costs can be so awful sometimes, grr), I would be happy to pay that.
Do you have a PayPal address or something? If you let me know a total cost inc. shipping, I'll send across payment :)

my postage scale saves the day!
i *think* i understood the usps website correctly; $8.40 for letter post, which is supposed to take 4-7 days. insurance is $1.85 (completely up to you, but i'd feel much better knowing it was insured). so the total would be $30.25. & i do have paypal (twentycupcakes@gmail.com).

Hon, I'm so sorry, but I can't buy the game from you after all :( I'm having a complete meltdown at the moment with money worries, and I only have 7 weeks til I go overseas now and I'm worrying so badly that I won't be able to afford to live when I get over there. I'm so sorry, I hope you can get a good price for it on eBay instead :(

Really sorry again... I hate going back on my word :(

I think I may have seen sims 2 uploaded as a torrent somewhere. Although, I could be mistaken I wouldn't know sims 1 from 2 to... whatever. *haha*
