PříspěvekPředmět: Jak opravit chyby ve hře bez přeinstalování The Sims 2 / prevence   13/01/18, 06:55 am

Narazila jsem na tuto stránku, kde jsou rady, jaké kroky podniknout k opravení hry, aniž by se musela celá hra přeinstalovat. Jsou tam i tipy, jak předejít chybám. Hned se jdu do toho pustit.
Článek je jen v angličtině.


Reinstall? Why? Rose/Miros's Thoughts on the Subject (and other Musings)

http://www.woodensimolean.com/node/41

IMHO, reinstalling is pointless! Yeah, it'll get your game running... then you'll put your backup back in... and the game won't work again, because the problem was in the My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2/ folder. Or you've lost all your neighborhoods and downloads and get to start over, because you didn't make a backup ( http://www.woodensimolean.com/node/148 ). If we wanted a game that you have to start over, we'd play a First Person Shooter, not The Sims!

Errors hardly ever affect the files in Program Files/EA Games/The Sims 2 (etc.), with very few preventable exceptions.  Follow my tutorial on preventing file corruption ( http://www.woodensimolean.com/node/45 ), and you should never need to reinstall again, since the game cannot corrupt its own files after this.

First diagnostic method: Go to My Documents/EA Games and rename your The Sims&nbsp.2 folder to something obvious, like The Sims 2 Safe Place.  Reboot  your computer.  Run your game.  If the game runs, it's something in your neighborhoods or custom content; keep following this tutorial.  If the game crashes, you need to reinstall, but your 'hoods and custom content are mostly in a safe place.  Only your Scriptorum files need to be backed up.

Note: You may be able to stave off a reinstall by replacing potentially corrupt game files with Zirconia Wolf's patched object files ( http://www.simbology.com/smf/index.php?topic=6505.msg128027#msg128027 ). Can't hurt, you've reconciled yourself to reinstalling, haven't you?

Most likely really corrupt files: accessory.cache, groups.cache, and cigen.package Suggested fix: go to My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2 and rename groups.cache to groups.cache.bak, and similar file names. Run the game. You'll be surprised at the number of times this fixes your game! And you've got your old file on the odd chance that it was something else.

Next most likely corrupt file: NeighborhoodManager.package This file can be deleted without harming your game in any way. Apparently the game ignores it except to crash if it's corrupt.

Third most likely corrupt file(s): Thumbnails folder  If you delete or rename the whole folder, the game will copy the thumbnails from the game files, then add the thumbnails for your custom content.

Fourth most likely corrupt file: Exported Sims in SavedSims   Maxis premade Sims are notorious for this.  If BodyShop will still run (a sure sign that this is the problem), resave exported Sims and delete the original exports.  If BodyShop crashes or hangs as well, drag the exported Sims out of SavedSims and run the game or BodyShop again.

Fifth most likely corrupt file: Something in Downloads  This is a little tedious to track down, but here's a tutorial from the MTS Wiki for the 50-50 Method.

Beyond that, if your computer crashed during a save, it might manage to corrupt real files in My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2. You can simply rename that folder and let the game create a new one. You can even attempt to salvage your old 'hoods and Downloads if you like once you have a functional game again.

Miros' #1 Rule: Don't delete! Just drag custom content out of your game!
Reasons:
1) It's probably perfectly good, so why delete it?
2) You might not be able to get another copy of it, so it could be gone for good...

Now for my recommendations on what to do:

Do make backups.

Do write protect your files!

If your game insists on corrupting the groups.cache file, try this read-only file from Caleb_71!

BoilingOil suggests two ways to make your own read-only file.

Just make an empty txt-file, name it groups.cache, and make it read-only.
Open the existing groups.cache in a good text editor and delete all content. Then save and make read-only.
Drawbacks to the read-only method:

These files were intended to speed up game load  times.  Without them, the game will have to harvest this info from the CC files and slow the load slightly.
Checking the size of groups.cache is a good way to tell if your Downloads are getting out of control.  Keeping the file by selective weeding to under 500kb will keep your game loading fairly quickly and help prevent future corruption of this file.  (ZephyrZodiac)
(Written so I don't need to keep retyping the darn thing every time someone says why do you tell people reinstalling is pointless?)

Back Up -- Protecting Your Sims and Custom Content

http://www.woodensimolean.com/node/148

How would you feel if your Sims suddenly vanished?  What if you really did have to reinstall your game?  You need a back up!

1. Go to My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2
2. Right click the Neighborhoods folder and zip it (exact wording in the context menu depends on which zip program you're using)
3. Right click on the Downloads folder and zip it
4. If you create custom content with BodyShop, right click and zip SavedSims and Projects too.
5. Change the file names to have the date in them (such as 2010-06-01 Neighborhoods.zip)
6. Use the right mouse button to drag the zips somewhere safe, such as another hard drive or partition or an external drive or burn them to a CD or DVD

If you have custom lights installed, you also need a back up of Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Lights.
If you have custom walls, fences, arches, arches, modular stairs, or fireplaces, also back up Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\Scripts\

Protecting Your Game From Itself

http://www.woodensimolean.com/node/45

Under certain circumstances, the game can clobber its own data files, for example killing or vampirizing Mrs. Crumplebottom. Certain modding tools can be misused to produce the same effect, such as modifying resources in situ rather than cloning them. Apparently, BodyShop itself can be used to delete the ugly Maxis clothes, destroying the data files containing them in the process.

To prevent this:

1. Navigate to Program Files/EA Games/. That's Program Files, not My Documents.
2. Start a Search based on this folder by any method you prefer. I like Ctrl-F.
3. Click "All Files and Folders."
4. Type *.package in the Filename box.
5. Make sure that the box to include subfolders is checked (under Advanced Options).
6. Click the "Search" button.
7. Wait a while.
8. When the search is done, select all the files in one big batch. I use Ctrl-A.
9. Right click on one file and pick "Properties" from the context menu.
10. In the Properties dialog, click the box next to "Read Only" until a check mark appears.
11. Click "Ok."
12. Wait a while.

Your files are now safe from the game, yourself, and BodyShop!

Zirconia Wolf also suggests doing this procedure on your Downloads folder. That's My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2/Downloads, not any other file or folder associated with the game, and definitely not the Neighborhoods folder, or your game won't be able to Save!

When to reverse this: Remember to unprotect the files before applying a Maxis patch or uninstalling the game.
