It has bugged me that the M&G items never showed up in my version of SimPE (0.72 something) even if the check-box for M&G is under preferences, so when I found the patch I tried it out (the installer, as the manual installation only confused me, and I read that several had troubles with it).

 

After the install SimPE works as it has always done, so the installation can't have messed up anything, but the M&G items still don't show up.

 

I've looked for the "folders.xreg" file, but there is no such file in the SimPE folder, even after I've run SimPE at least twice. Searching for it doesn't come up with anything.  

 

The only files with "xreg" I find in the "Data" folder are these:

"xreg.xsd"

"expansions.xreg"

 

There are however some folders (directly after the AL ones) named "(missing) Folder: {Absolute}TSData\Res\..." under the "advanced settings" tab under "File Table". Could those be for M&G? And how do I fix that?

 

I'd really appreciate some help with this, as I've got some plans for the M&G flowers, among other things.

I would try version .73, which is listed on the home page.

 

Make a folder for it

Extract the files into the folder

Open the folder and locate the SimPE.exe file

 

Use that to run it, or make a shortcut to it.

 

 

It is already set up for M&G without the patch, so that will confirm that any problems are not related to patching it.

I installed it (ran it from the folder), and it seems M&G items are finally showing up now.  

I did see the 0.73 version on the front page, but must have misread the text as something else.

 

Thanks :)

You'll only make the data bigger than it already is.

If you have M&G, you need the version of SimPE that can handle it.  .73 is the one that was designed for it. It's not a question of how much more data it adds, it's a question of how well it can handle your game.  If you don't use it on the same computer where your game is installed, or you change the file table so that it's not finding your game, it still loads with blinding speed.  Of course if it can't find your game you can't edit your sims or your saved game, but if you aren't planning to use it for that it works quite nicely.  (And yes, it does load anything it can find every time, even if you are only planning to make recolors or mods.)

Yes, there is one. :)

 

How delightfully random to be mentioning it here.
