It installed without a problem. I spent some time taking
downloads out (altough I considered keeping a few - it IS pretty
cool to have a blue flashing painting on the wall! But decided
against it so to not run any risks). I lost a lot, virtually all
my paintings, which hurts, and my black easel :-( But walls,
floors and skins seem to be okay. We're going to need more
clothes soon!

Funny thing is, yesterday I started up the game after a few weeks
of playing Children of the Nile, and I had a WALL flickering
PURPLE. I finally demolished the whole house. I have no idea
where that came from.

It seems to run just fine; I'll probably run into more flashing
objects but probably no more that I use a lot.

But I can't put the music on any other than the hip hop folder!
Most annoying. I'll have to move my MP3's.

It is so easy to convert objects and even new meshes to EP ready with
the latest SimPe.
I've never used SimPE before so if I can do it, anybody can! LOL

I have my objects in folders by the creator's site and have been putting
in one folder at a time
to check them out.

I also found out that some objects that the creator said was EP ready
was NOT! So
I used SimPE to convert them to EP ready and they showed up just fine in
my game. YAY!

Don't lose your objects, get the latest version of SimPE. :)

I tried using SimPE to convert files that I have downloaded to EP
ready..took me forever because I am so odd about having households with
entirely different items from the next. I thought I followed the directions
to a T on MTS2.
Anyhow, either I had great expectations or I am not as intelligent as I
thought because my game crashed several times after I converted the objects.
My backup wouldn't work either so I had to start completely and unzip them
all again and face the flashing blue objects still. Just wondering if this
is something that will continue or if SimPE will really convert the flashing
items to what I had downloaded and I need to take more caution and try
again.

What version SimPE do you have? Is it version 027.....?
You just open up SimPE & click on plugins and scan folders. You can even
browse &
go to specific folders if you have folders inside of your download
folder.
Then SimPE tells you if they are EP ready & if not, you just click an EP
READY
button & it does all the work, then you can scan again, & they show up
ep ready.

I believe in an older version of simPE, it was different but this newest
version is better.

That purple flashing wall was amazing. But I didn't trust it.

I had music on a public lot, and it kept on playing hip hop. I
couldn't change it. Must be a way from doing it in-game... I'll
stumble into it.

All my public lots play hihphop if I put speakers on them. It's enough to
keep me away from them. I don't buy new clothes, I just tolerate the
everyday clothes the sim is stuck with, I hate hiphop that much.

Too late :-) It sounds easy, yes. I would have tried, but I'm
mightily relieved that everything went well so I'm happy. I'll
hunt for new objects. That'll KEEP me happy :-)

Doesn't the music depend on the colour of the speakers?

speaker on the wall and it churned out some GodAwful Heavy Metal lol.

Ohhh.. my SimPE version is .012. Which I could have sworn on the website it
said "If you are not sure what you want, this is the file". Will go get the
version .27 and try again. Thanks.

I'm sulking. The latest version does not scan subfolders - how am I meant to
check the GUIDs of one creators downloads against another if the damn thing
doesn't scan subfolders?!

Maybe there's a good reason not to use subfolders inside your download
folder. LOL

Now, that can't be right. I've never used a yellow speaker! The speakers
I'm using are black. And the music is atrocious!

That should be heavy metal - which is atrocious, fair enough - but if you're
getting hip hop, your game is officially weird.

speakers play which music?

It tells you in the game - when you select the speakers, it tells you what
type they are. That is if you give it time to pop up the description. I
bet you've been just grabbing the speaker and sticking it on the wall,
haven't you? Go on, admit it.

I confess, I was pulling speakers by *what matched the room*.

Grrrrr. I didn;t know that, either. I chose speakers for the colour.
None of them play Mozart, I know that much. 8((((

You can in-game uncheck all the songs and, of course, put your
own MP3's in it.
