Freestanding Rack works but, when a sim goes to buy the game(it appears on the buy list), nothing appears in there hand, they walk to the counter to pay(still empty handed), then the action just goes away and nothing else happens(they gitter for a split second then stand there for a bit and go of and do sumthing else). went back over it dozens of times and dont understand where I went wrong.

This is definately the hardest turtorial I've come across yet, probably because I have never needed to clone a object, a pity as got all my 128x128 avi video-screens all ready, then started this turtorial, I get completely lost on Part 1 Step 2, about giving inquire, GUIDs, I suppose this turtorial is surprising to advanced for my knowledge, I think I go back to basic MESH modifying with MTS2 Mesh tool.

Hey, for people who can make their own videogames, can you please make it without an exe installer so mac users can use them too? You'd be unhappy if mac users made them so windows users couldn't.

I don't know if you can, but if you make a SECOND videoame, can you make it so that there is only one custom rack object but sells both Custom Games?

I found this today and was going to give it a try, but hit the same problem... I can't actually find the texture in the video game package I cloned (or the other ones. I assume I have perhaps missed something simple... anyone able to help?

Cheers,

Same texture situation here. There is none to be found.

this tutorial is good, despite not being very descriptive (texturing-wise).

I do not do requests; please don't ask!

I am having a hard time making the game buyable. I can't find the stuff under the game rack to make the game buyable. I even had a config ready. I don't know what's wrong. Step 4 i. is not there. there is no Array operation. Please help.

I don't know if anyone still has this question, but the texture image DOES appear if you clone one of the SSX 3 games. I think there are 2 and it's in one.

Default Hmm....
Assuming that I can figure out how to do this, I have three important questions:

1 - how would I make sure my .avi files are 128x128 and how could I resize them if they're not?

2 - would this technique work on the standup arcade games? Or Pinballs?

3 - if #2 is a yes, would the new games be interactive and playable by my Sims?

As an Arcade Technician, I have lots of access to original games and could probably mod any classic game ever made. Would be nice to include original sounds and movies.

here's and online converter that i use. It allows you to convert almost any video file to any other format, and resize as well as set the FPS under the AVI option. All you need to do is go to the link, choose the filetype thatyou are converting, then go lower and select AudioVideoInterleaved(avi) or something like that and then re-size and set FPS to 15. Works for me and ll pf my videos work in sims. Here's a link:

I don't have any particular requests, I was just wondering why there weren't any custom games besides this one. That's a good idea, though. I've got FRAPS so I might just make my own stuff.

There's an arcade game for GTA: San Andreas, and console versions Hulk: Ultimate Destruction and Smackdown! vs RAW 2006.

I thought Exnem? made buyable versions of a few games like Quake and Doom. I remember having a Star Wars game from here too but I can't remember who made it.

Paladin has made many arcade games.

I think the reason more people haven't followed this because Open For Business broke alot of custom games and pretty much made this tutorial useless. I don't know if it's been updated to correct the OFB problems or not since I haven't really tried it since OFB came out.

The problem with OFB is simply that you cannot sell custom games in your businesses but they work fine on non-owned community lots. They'll have a max sale price of $1 and will disappear similar to what true_predator described. If you have OFB and are trying to follow this tutorial and are running into a brick wall (if it hasn't been updated for OFB) feel free to clone either my Hulk or SVR games to use as a base. Everything should be done for you except for changing and replacing the guids, texturing the game and game rack, and the videos and ini files of course. Your games just won't be sellable on owned community lots unless someone is aware of a way to correct this problem.

hexxer, the reason for installers is simply because without them the end user would have to manually place several different files in many different folders in order for the game to work, plus they need to modify ini files, etc. Most people will either give up or eventually make a mistake when dealing with so much work to install one game.

skiingiggy the missing stuff for making the game buyable is one of the problems with OFB. I assume you have that, which is why those options aren't there. As far as pulling the game texture uncheck "remove useless files" when cloning and SimPE should pull the texture for you.

daisyjean0117 for "would this technique work on the standup arcade games? Or Pinballs?" no, this tutorial won't work for the arcade games but this one will and yes they would be playable by your Sims. As far pinball, I've never even thought about looking into doing anything to them so I can't say at the moment. It's an interesting question. I think I'll go have a look.

Default Hopefully a minor problem:
Oh, I hope this thread is still alive, it's quite old.

I seem to be a bit stuck with part 2 step 4.
When I go into "CT – Set Selection", some of the things I need to change are not there, and at that, there are no where near as many as there are in the screenshot you have given.

I assume I have done something wrong during the cloning process like I did when I tried to find the texture file, only to find that I had "remove useless files" ticked (although i would think a texture is quite important, but oh well)

So I was just wondering how to rectify this problem, I am new to SimPE, so please don't drown me with complex terms.

(Oh, and I don't mind if I have to restart, now that I know how to do the first few parts, it's pretty easy to get back to where I was... I had to restart once already... )

EDIT: And I don't know if this is important, although it probably is. I am using SimPE v0.62.

EDIT AGAIN: Also, I was thinking of perhaps downgrading to 0.33, if it is available. But I wanted to make sure if it was a problem with me cloning the item, or something version specific.

My username is pronounced "Six-Woah", not "Kicks-Wow".

Projects completed: 3
Projects working on: 1

Current project: Buyable version of "The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion" videogame.
Progress: Around 25% (A little stuck at the moment, still awaiting assistance, PM me if you think you can help.)

Okay, you're going to need to be a teensy bit more detailed before we can help you. Which step are you on at the point where you're having trouble? Which folder can't you find? That sort of information would be really helpful. It's also a good idea to attach your partially complete file so we can see exactly what you're seeing.

Default Problem with this.
I am following this video game tutorial (took me awhile to figure out what was going on but it made sense eventually), but I am a bit confused as to the movie part. I don't have a [installdir]/TSData\Res\Movies\Games folder. I have a [installdir]/Movies/Games folder. Is that weird?

I have OFB and Pets installed- would that affect anything?
