Ughh this makes me wish I hadn't deleted my old Sims 2 families. Back when Sims 3 came out and I was strapped for HDD space (before 1 TB drives were affordable), I uninstalled the game thinking that 3 would naturally be better than 2. Boy was I wrong.
Is this locked to a specific computer? The article about it on EA's site (http://help.ea.com/en/article/how-to-get-the-sims-2-ultimate-collection/) says, "Log into Origin and download and play the game any time you want ." I'm wondering if that means you can redownload it again on another computer, so long as you have access to the Origin account.
Also, I'm waiting to get my Mac back up and running... assuming there IS a Mac version of the Ultimate package, if I download this on my Windows systems, can I download the Mac version on my Mac? :)
Ah, okay. At least, if you can download it whenever you want, I don't have to worry about trying to free up a bunch of space on my main system now. :) (I'd have to remove some other, old games, that's all.)
My Mac actually has far more available space, but if I can only download a PC version, it wouldn't help. :D
Now if I could just fix those shadows without downgrading my nvidia drivers I'd be all set. The game takes forever to load on my i7. I am scared to see how long it takes to load on my old XP machine but it might render better as it's only using the 314 drivers, but it's also a 9600gt so the framerate might suck.
