Hey Everyone... I've had the Sims 2 for a few months now and have been playing off and on. Starting a couple days ago I'm having some problems with it that prevent any playing. Once the game gets started the control area in the lower left corner will not show up unless I have my cursor set to one of the outside edges of the screen. When I move the cursor away from the edge, the panel disappears, so the CP is virtually unusable. Any ideas? I don't want to lose my game so I'm really not wanting to do a re-install, unless theres someway to save what I have. Thanks, allison.
