    Hello, I purchased the sims 2 and the nightlife expansion a few months ago for my powerbook g4. Both the game and expansion worked fine for all this time until now where it refuses to even start up. I have tried everything I know to try to get it to run again. I repaired disk/disk permissions, reinstalled the base game and patch then nightlife and nightlife patch again, still no good. Finally I did a complete uninstall (preferences, game saves, etc.) and just installed the base sims 2 game. Still nothing works. When the logo is on the dock it bounces once or twice and then stops.

    A couple of things of note:
    I recently upgraded to Tiger (yes I have the latest revision 10.4.10 as well)
    I recently installed new fonts/a new font manager
    I have a powerbook g4 with 1.25gb of ram and 1.5ghz Power PC Processor

    I hope someone can help me with this cause i'm really stumped. I don't understand what the crash log indicates but maybe some else here can.

    (I apologize for the length)

    Sadly, I had the same problem. Aspyr was absolutely no help to me, and I did that so many times it isn't funny. Only one thing worked, but you won't like it: Hard Drive erasing and starting from scratch.

    That was the only thing that allowed it to work.
