Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

====================================================
-------------------------------------------------------------------

This version of the AGS is outdated; the thread is locked and kept
here only for reference purposes.

For any question, bug reports etc, please refer to the
official AnyGameStarter page.


-------------------------------------------------------------------
====================================================






IMPORTANT - COMPATIBILITY LIST
The AGS works with any EP/SP among these ones:
Base Game (CD, DVD, Deluxe, Double Deluxe, Holiday Ed. 2005/06), University, Nightlife, Open for Business, Family Fun, Glamour Life, Pets, Seasons, Celebration, H&M, Bon Voyage, Teen Style, Store Edition, FreeTime, Kitchen & Bath, Ikea, Apartment Life.
Don't use the AGS with any EP/SP newer than Apartment Life, other game editions not
listed above, or EP/SP bought online from EA site (except Store Ed.)


==========================================================

WHAT'S NEW IN THE LATEST VERSION

  • Version 1.6
    • New Feature: Apartment Life - The AGS is now compatible with the Apartment Life EP: you can include or exclude it at will.
    • New Feature: Store Edition - The AGS is now compatible with The Sims 2 Store Edition (beta); for anyone curious about this, SE is seen as a Stuff Pack by the game; it doesn't add anything to the game (you have to buy/download stuff online), but there are some exclusive objects that will appear only if you have SE installed and activated. Therefore, the AGS now gives the ability to include SE in the minigame. However, I strongly suggest to deactivate it, unless you really need it: it's mostly useless in a minigame, and might cause your creations to require SE to work.
    • Improvement: [Double] Deluxe - Solved a little bug that made the "No Maxis Content" option not work properly with [Double] Deluxe.
    • Improvement: "Wrong Disk" error - The internal code has been partly rewritten, hopefully solving the "Wrong Disk" bug that some users were experiencing with IKEA.
    • Improvement: Faster loading and cleaner catalog - When using the "Mini Game (no Maxis content)" option, the hidden lots (FT and AL) are now created without any characters; they will be created automatically by the game whenever really needed. Also, all the pre-made Dorms, Hotel and Apartments have been stripped from the Lot Bin.

==========================================================




Do you want to temporarily exclude the Stuff Packs from your game? Or experience the thrill of playing a game that has only FFS, Celebration and a Christmas pack? Do you want to test an object against an odd game configuration? Now you can!

WHAT IS THE ANYGAMESTARTER
The AnyGameStarter (in brief: 'AGS') allows to create a test-game (and optionally a test-Bodyshop) including or excluding any Expansion Pack, Stuff Pack and Add-on Packs (among the ones that you own, of course ).
This can be considered a sort of "extension" of the BaseGameStarter, but it's a completely autonomous tool anyway.

HOW TO USE
The AGS installer is very easy to use; it can create up to three different games (each one with its optional BodyShop), configured according to the options you select.
The three "slots" are named "AnyGame1", "AnyGame2" and "AnyGame3"; you can create, modify and delete them at will. Your "Full" game will NOT be modified in any way: the AGS is completely autonomous from it.

Here are the 3 steps required to create an AnyGame:




Please note that the installer is "intelligent": it will display only the options that can actually be chosen; if you don't have Pets, for instance, you won't see the "Pets" checkbox in the list; also, the 'slot' list changes according to the AnyGames already existing on your computer.

Please note that every time you REPLACE or DELETE an AnyGame slot, the corresponding game is *completely* deleted from your computer.


HOW TO UNINSTALL
Use the standard 'Add/Remove Program' panel. Uninstalling will completely delete all the AnyGames, their Downloads and their Neighborhoods. No traces of the AnyGameStarter will be left behind.


GAME COMPATIBILITY
The AGS works with any EP/SP among these following:
Base Game (CD, DVD, Deluxe, Double Deluxe, Holiday Ed. 2005/06), University, Nightlife, Open for Business, Family Fun, Glamour Life, Pets, Seasons, Celebration, H&M, Bon Voyage, Teen Style, Store Edition, FreeTime, Kitchen & Bath, Ikea, Apartment Life.
Don't use the AGS with any EP/SP newer than Apartment Life, other game editions not not listed above, or EP/SP bought online from EA site (except Store Ed.)
The installer runs under Windows (from NT4 to Vista).

TECHNICAL NOTES
The AnyGameStarter creates the games in these folders:
(Documents)\AnyGameStarter\AnyGame1
(Documents)\AnyGameStarter\AnyGame2
(Documents)\AnyGameStarter\AnyGame2

Whenever one AnyGame is started, the path to the Documents is temporarily modified in the Windows Registry (it is automatically restored to the original values in 30 seconds).

TROUBLESHOOTING
The AGS is quite stable and - if properly used - should not issue any error. However, the program files are located in (Documents)\AnyGameStarter\AppFiles: if you need help, please zip the 'AppFiles' folder and post it here as attachment.


Acknowledgements:
Thanks to Delphy for suggesting the smart solution to change the path to the Documents, instead of renaming the game folders!
And thanks to MaryLou for the beautiful icons and for being my "guinea pig": testing the AGS while in development wasn't a walk in the park for her PC... -

----------------------------------------------------------------------

CHANGELOG & HISTORY
  • Version 1.5
    IKEA_logo D_Deluxe
    • New Feature: IKEA Home Stuff - The AGS is now compatible with the IKEA Home Stuff SP: you can include or exclude it at will.
    • Improvement: [Double] Deluxe - I've finally managed to get access to a Deluxe and a Double Deluxe installations, and therefore I can ensure full compatibility with both Sims2 versions, and also provide assistance if needed.
    • Bugfixes: IKEA, EP detection and Lot installation - Under some circumstances, running an AnyGame caused the IKEA stuff to disappear from the Full Game; also, in some cases the EP/SP selector showed EPs actually not installed in the computer; lastly, the installation of lots (by Drag&Drop) didn't work fine when the screen resolution was set to fullscreen. All these bugs have been fixed.

  • Version 1.4 / 1.4b
    KBlogo ClickMe ClickMe
    • New Feature: Kitchen & Bath - The AGS is now compatible with the Kitchen & Bath SP: you can include or exclude it at will.
    • New Feature: "AnyBodyshop" - Now you can optionally add a second icon to each AnyGame, that will start the related BodyShop (i.e. a BodyShop that includes only the EP/SP selected for the AnyGame).
    • New Feature: "No Maxis Default Content" "Game Type" choice - In order to greatly speed up the game loading (especially the first time you run a newly-created AnyGame), you can optionally get rid of all the additional lots, families and neighborhoods that come with specific EPs (i.e. the "Maxis default content"): no more "Creating Pets/Weather/Exotic Destinations" screens, no more catalogs clogged with the same old lots and families! Moreover, this option will stop the intro movie from playing (even faster loading!).
      NOTE: you can still manually create colleges, exotic destinations, downtowns and everything; and you will still find all the clothings, hair styles etc. in the CAS/BodyShop.
      You can choose between the following options:
      • Standard Game - This option creates a complete game, with all the default neighborhoods, families, lots and everything; it's useful if you want to create a secondary "full game" with a specific theme (e.g. a "medieval" Pleasantville).
      • Mini Game - This option creates a game containing only the "Mini-Game" neighborhood, with one occupied house already installed and two more in the lot bin; if you want, you can manually add the Maxis pre-made colleges, downtown, etc. (or create custom empty sub-NHs). This is the perfect environment for testing your creations or building lots to share.
      • Empty Game - This will create a perfectly empty game, without neighborhoods, sub-nh, sims, lots: nothing at all. Choose this option if you want to create an entirely new neighborhood to share with other players.
        The neighborhoods created in this empty game will require the newest EP, among the ones you selected (if you deselect all the EP, the resulting NH will be base-game compatible). The size of the created empty NH can vary, but it's extremely small (a base-game simple NH: 190 Kb; an all-EP NH with college, downtown, shop district and 3 vacation dest.: 16 Mb)
  • Version 1.3
    • New Feature: Freetime - The AGS is now compatible with Freetime: you can include or exclude it at will.
    • New Feature: 64 bit compatibility - The AGS installer will automatically detect 64bit systems, and will install the proper file versions.
    • Improvement: Temporary language - The code related to the management of the temporary game language has been fixed and improved; there should be no more issues infrequent languages such as Russian or Hungarian.

  • Version 1.2c
    NoSound Tooltip
    • New Feature: NoSound - Now, when installing an AGS game, you can choose whether to mute it or not.
    • Improvement: tooltip - For better readability, the tooltip shows the info split in 4 lines.

  • Version 1.2b
    • BugFix: FullGame - Thanks to the users' reports, I've tracked down and fixed a bug that prevented the Full Game to run correctly whenever the user did NOT have all the EP/SP. Reinstalling the AGS will fix your Full Game.

    • New Feature: Language choice - Now you can force the AnyGame to use a specific language, chosen from a list of 11 (plus, of course, your original language). This is extremely useful if you are going to create something aimed to an international audience: you can see how your creation behaves in a foreign game!

  • Version 1.2
    • New Feature: Teen Style - Now the AGS works fine with the Teen Style Stuff pack, and can include this SP into your AnyGames.

    • New Feature: Drag&Drop lot installation - You can now install .sims2pack files by simply dragging the sims2pack over the chosen mini-game icon, and the BGS will let you install the sims2pack content into the mini-game, instead of the full game. When the installer opens up, just confirm the installation into the *default* path. This works with both the Clean Installer and the Maxis installer.

    • New Feature: Icon Tooltip - Unlike the BGS, whose icons have an explanatory name, the AnyGame icons are somewhat "anonymous", and so you can forget which packs you have included in that particular mini-game.
      Now the AGS icons have a tooltip that will remind you the game configuration.

    • New Feature: Collections - Now the BGS installer copies all your collections from your full game to each mini-game; this won't harm nor slow down your mini-game because the collections are just small files that contain references to the actual objects: if the mini-game doesn't include the EP needed for some objects to be displayed, the collection will appear empty (e.g. if you open the "Nightlife stuff" collection in a OnlyUNI game, you won't see any object inside).

    • Improvement - Screen resolutions - Implemented in the AGS the same feature of the BGS, that allows you to set a resolution for your AnyGame (3 standard and 2 widescreen resolutions are available)

    • New Community Lot in catalog: a ready-to-use lot, useful for quick tests, created by MaryLou for all of us to enjoy


30 SEPT 2007 - AnyGameStarter v.1.1b
Fixed a bug that affected only some users: when starting
the mini-game, actually the Full game started; or the game
complaints about not running the right game.
If you are not experiencing this bug, you don't need to redownload.

Hold it. Let me get this straight: You can choose WHICH expansions you can use with the game, including Bon Voyage, and the fewer expansions you use, the FASTER the game will run? I just want to make sure I'm understanding this right...

SAGGG, yes, that's right; but again, the "AnyGame" is a separate, stand-alone game, different than your normal game; as soon as you install it, it's very fast because:
- it contains NO dowloads
- it doesn't need to load (and manage) all the features from all the EPs.

If you exclude Seasons, for example, the game won't create weather casualties, and therefore it will run faster. But if you include many EP's and then copy into the AnyGame folders all the custom content you have in your normal game, then the AnyGame will load and run slowly just like your normal game.

This is what I've been waiting for... for a real long time :D
I've missed the option to package lots using only the EP's - A lot of people don't buy the stuff packs, now I don't need to tell people that they need to install my lots using Clean Installer only

Thank you so much for this Num, I don't know how you find both energi & time to all your wonderful creations, but I'm glad you do :D

To clarify can I use this instead of the 3 user accounts that I have made to create three different "themed" games?

If I have the "Medieval" world loaded up as AnyGame1, the Victorians as AnyGame2, and the sci-fi loaded up as AnyGame3; loading game 1 will not load any CC or the neighborhoods that are Victorian, they belongs only in AnyGame2?

This would save me quite a bit of hard-drive space. The separate user accounts do tend to bloat. I think I understand, but I want to be sure before installing this and moving stuffs around.

Yes, this is an other grate use of the AGS, you can install the 3 games to run only what you like.
So in AnyGame1 aka "Medieval" you should copy in the new folders all its components, like Downloads, Neighborhoods, Lots, ecc ecc
Go to MyDocuments/AnyGameStarter/AnyGame1/EA Games/The Sims 2, you can see al the "usaully" folders about the game.
Make the same for the are two games.

You can also custom the name of the icons, if you like, just re-named them.

When you'll run the AnyGame1 aka "Medieval" you'll play only that game that will not load any CC or the neighborhoods that are Victorian or sci-fi, they are located in AnyGame2 and AnyGame3.

Remember that you have also the real game that start with the Maxis'icon.

Move the stuff, run the games to make sure all it's fine. When you are sure you can delete the previous ones and also the user accounts to save a bit of hard-drive space.

Take in mind that if you want uninstall the AGS you'll lose all the games because uninstalling the AGS means delete ALL its folders, so before make a backup. If you'll replace one of the AnyGame you'll lose all its folder and get new empty ones.

If you like my creations, you may consider to make a little donation to support my site and my modding activity.

Hey,

I just installed this and I'm getting a "conflict" message when I try to load the game.

I had it set to load all of the games excluding Pets, Seasons and Bon Voyage.
I tried using the CDs from H&M stuff and Open for Business but I get the conflict message regardless.

DOEreoh - In the beginning I created the BaseGameStarter purposely to test objects, and this is the main usage for me, still today. The AnyGameStarter has the same scopes.

You can therefore test objects in both games (BGS or AGS): the only difference is that the BGS has many pre-made games, and is quicker to use (no need to run the installer every time you want a new game); but if you want to exclude an EP "in between" (e.g. including OFB and Seasons and excluding Pets), then the AGS is the only choice.


Spookimuffin - Can you please report exactly the "conflict" message?
I see from your profile that you have all the existing EP and SP, and therefore the game you have created should start with the H&M CD in the drive...


Kaddel - There is no need for another Legacy BodyShop; there's already one in the BaseGameStarter.

I put my H&M CD into the drive, double click on the "Start AnyGame1" icon on my desktop, and then a box appears that just says "conflict" (see below)

That message means that the game has detected a "virtual CD emulator" installed on your computer.
Some EPs, even when we put the real CD in the real CD drive, refuse to start when they detect an emulator installed on the PC. The fact that the emulator is inactive is irrelevant: the bare existence of the emulator is not tolerated, you have to uninstall it.

If, on the other hand, you have NO emulators at all (and mind that programs like Nero can create an emulator without explicitly warn the user), then I don't know what to say to help you...

Well, I was using my H&M CD but daemon tools was running in the background. I closed it and it all seems to be running fine now.
Thanks.
