hey fellow simmers! I have made new videogames for your sims to play with! This set includes:

Mario Kart Wii:


Stepmania:


Counter-Strike: Condition Zero



|IMPORTANT|
For the this to work you need to download the video files. I couldn't upload them here because they exceeded the upload limit. Download the file on this post first then download the video files from: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=LOAZ7ARY

Thanks for downloading. I hope you like it. :D

All games are played by me, except mario kart. :]

|OTHER INFO|
-I am taking request for video games, but you have to supply me your own videos of your
game.

-You have to give 6 videos:

- yourgamename_ATTRACT.avi - a short movie with the game logo;
- yourgamename_INTRO.avi - the game's intro;
- yourgamename_P1WIN.avi - the movie played when there's only one player with good skills;
- yourgamename_P1LOSE.avi - the movie played when there's only one player with bad skills;
- yourgamename_P2WIN.avi - the movie played when there are two players and player 1 wins;
- yourgamename_P2LOSE.avi - the movie played when there are two players and player 1 loses.

-The movies should have a size no greater than 128x128 and a maximum frame rate of 15 fps.
To make sure you have the right settings for your videos go to this tutorial:
http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=84234

-The first 2 videos: ATTRACT & INTRO, should not exceed 7seconds!
-The rest are up to 7min.

-PM me if you have any questions-

!UPDATE!
Seems i have left something out in the Readme.
Its to make the Wii.avi work.
Once you have put the Wii.avi in C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Movies\Games\esrb
You need to go to C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Movies\Games\INI
There look for the "esrb configuration settings"
Open it and you should see something like
[Broadcasts]
0=vgs_ea_games
1=vgs_esrb_e
Etc.
Find where it ends. Mine ended on 4, so i added: "5=vgs_wii"
Whichever number it ends on, add the next line.
Most of you will end with 3, so add "4=vgs_wii"
Then scroll all the way to the bottom and add:
[vgs_wii]
IsGames=1
Folder=Games/esrb
File=wii.avi

Now the wii.avi should work.


Additional Credits: SimPE otherwise this wouldn't be possible.
Adobe Photoshop for the textures of the game case.
Raquelcesar and Exnem for inspiring me to make this.

161 mb? That's a bit large for only 3 ingame games now isn't it?

Remember the larger the download folder..the slower the game will run!

No complaints here! I've definitely been wanting some more games for home consoles and I'll anxiously await more (if you make them).

Thanks, but isn't it odd that Sims have to pay for a game we can get for free IRL?

thank you so much! as a serious gamer myself, i always thought it was so boring for them to have to play the same game over and over and over. and the animations are just not right for the sims 3 game, lol. thanks very much, i will definitely look forward to any more games you put out.

Great idea! More variety for my gamer sims. When I finally get around to making a sim of my BF, he'll have his Counterstrike. Can't wait to see more.

Ok how the heck do you get the video files because I keep getting the big runaround from the site... I believe your mod would be great but when I can't get the video files then your mod will not work.
Please post some sort of instructions to get these files and avoid the frustration.

#14 Old 6th Aug 2008 at 9:09 PM
No Madden, oh well...

Still, it's great to get more games. I'm sick of SSX3.


Anyway, if you want some video footage of some games I have KOTOR (I & II), Star Wars: Battlefront (I), Splinter Cell: Double Agent, and America's Army.

At the top of the page to the link that was given, there should be three letters that you need to type in. Type those letters as shown and hit "download". Once you get to the download page there will be 2 sections, premium and free. You have to wait 45 seconds for the free download to become available; the box will turn gray. After it turns grey, then click "free download" and it should start downloading.

Tested all 3 games; they work fine, but the Wii.avi logo isn't working when I go to play Mario Kart.

I originally placed it in c/program files/EA games/sims 2/TSData/Res/Movies/Games/esrb and it was just flashing blue when I started it up.

After that, I tried placing it in My Documents/EA games/Sims 2/Movies/Games/esrb but it had the same result; flashing blue instead of showing the wii.avi clip.

So, am I doing something wrong? Can I just remove the wii.avi clip it play the game without it?

If I knew where to find the video files, I'd request Sonic 2. Always a good single (and multiplayer) game with graphics that shouldn't take TOO much space.

Also, excellent job on this! Us game freaks need more games for our sims!

My bad I left somthing small out of the readme:
Go to C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Movies\Games\INI and find the esrb configuration settings. Open it and under "broadcast" you should see something like:
"0=vgs_ea_games" go to where it ends like mine ended on 4.
So i added "5=vgs_wii"
do that, then scroll all the way to the bottom and add :
[vgs_wii]
IsGames=1
Folder=Games/esrb
File=wii.avi

it should work then. Sorry for that :D

Oh sorry, I don't have any sports games right now. haha srry no madden.

Sure i'll take your videos, but are they in the right size and format? look in my |OTHER INFO| in my post to read about that.
I'm going to need any 3 games of the ones you listed. You choose, because the game rack ingame can only hold 3 games.
