hi,

i was wondering if anybody had ever enquired about a replacment sims
disk, for one they have lost. as games are getting spread across more
disks (back to the bad old days of installing 20 floppies) this
problem will likely become more wide spread, or maybe its just me.

Not personally, but as a point of interest - I wouldn't buy University if I
was you. You need S2 disk 4 to complete the install - of course, maybe this
is how you discovered your disk was missing . . . . in which case you have
my deepest condolences.

Hmmmm, what if you installed with the dvd version of sims2?
There was no disk 4 with it.

I installed twice.
Once with the patch.
Once with out the patch.

The one that I had the patch installed on did not require the DVD.
When I reinstalled it I did not have the patch installed.
It required me to put the DVD back in to finish the install.

I wasn't even aware that there was a DVD version until after I had bought
Sims 2 in the CD form. *blush*

I don't know why but I was never asked for the Sims2 disc. I have installed
univeristy a grand total of three times now and not once did it want it.

Somebody said that this is so if you have the second patch installed. I
didn't patch my new installation and it definitely asked for disk 4.

It is the patch that asks for disk 4. The patch comes with University. If
you have patched before, only University is installed, otherwise the patch
runs first.
