This is made for UNIVERSITY ONLY! The thing we fix in here would make OW useless!

Ok, let's begin then! Open up (default location!) C:\Program Files\SimPE\Data\folders.xml. This is the only file we'll need. I'd make a backup just incase.

See the lines similar to: <path root="game">TSData\Res\Objects</path>?
These are for the original The Sims 2. Delete all the lines which has root="game", and save! That's all there is too it!
Make sure to keep the following;
<path root="game">TSData\Res\Wants</path>
<path root="game">TSData\Res\UI</path>
These's weren't duplicated, so you still need them! You need both!

If you want to know why this quickens OW up, here's a short explaination;

The EP1 files feature all of the TS2 files in them too, basicly meaning you'd be loading them twice, which would be loading like 5000 files. This way you're only loading about 2000. Much quicker right?

Hope I helped you!

Basically right, BUT: the Names for the wants & fears were not dupliacted in the EP, so you still have to leave the follwoing line sin if you use the w & f Editor.

<path root="game">TSData\Res\Wants</path> 
<path root="game">TSData\Res\UI</path>

The hint Path looks strange tho! Normally it is an absolute Path to the Windows Registry (which isn't better for multiple developers!)
