Being the silly person I am, I've misplaced the Sims 2 disk and the casing, I've searched the house up and down. Anyway, I heard about these NoDVD Patches, which allow you to play the game without the disc in. I've downloaded the on made by The Blade, but it just quits. People say you have to modify the permissions, I know how to do this, but what to I set the permissions to? If anybody can find me a working patch, please post below. On a final note, these aren't illegal, they actually have legitimate uses, such as my own.
