That's just weird. :confused: I haven't experienced anything like this yet. But I have to be honest. I don't have Apartment Life yet (no money to buy it myself and someone seems to have messed things up at EA - causing the fansites to miss out on this one), and ever since Spore came out, I haven't played any other game. Is this an issue more people are having?

I have read about some people who ever had it on some textures. however a simple reinstall seemed to have usually solved it for them, and the error didn't show up in almost all of the basegame-stuff either.

My laptop can handle Sims 2 way better than my computer, however my laptop vid card is not supported for Sims 2, therefor EA's helpdesk is not an option. Sigh...

As noted in the MTS2 thread: this doesn't have anything to do with the graphics card - very unlikely anyway. It's missing textures, or textures are corrupt.

Few things you could try: download an AL torrent, install from that. Try different graphics settings (esp. texture quality). Manually extract the .package files from the DVD (I assume they're in a data2.cab file or so as usual) to your installation directory.

Make sure you don't install any EP to the same directory as TS2 itself!
