Join Date: Dec 2009
I've recently downloaded a lot of stuff and have them unzipped and installed except... when I go in the game, most of them don't show. So I went in my folders to see what was wrong, and re-downloaded a new sims2pack cleaner and now some of them don't even show up as readable (keep in mind I was in the folder and clicking each separately). BUT when I manually open the sims2pack cleaner and go into the file, I see the package files picture and wording but can't install them now.
What I did when I downloaded the files was extract them from my into my download folder and double clicked the item to install but error message appears saying sims2pack can't read it. All the files that don't work all have the type PACKAGE File.
Went online, read all the info on sims2pack files, downloading for fracking idiots (cuz now I believe I am one lol), googled helps, even went on yahoo answers,searched the TSR forums AND MTS forums but nothing... So what did I do wrong? : (

The has several different modes.
In install mode, you double click on a Sims2Pack file and the will extract the packages from the Sims2Pack and place them into your Downloads folder. This mode requires a Sims2Pack. If you double click on a package file, the will give you an error.
In Browse mode, you open the and then specify which folder you want to browse. The will examine all of the package files within that directory (recursively, if desired) and tell you what they are, to the best of its ability.
If you want to install a package file, just copy it into your Downloads folder (or into a subfolder of Downloads). You do not need the to install a package file.
To answer your questions more specifically:
Sims2Pack files should not be in the Downloads folder; when you double click on a Sims2Pack file, the will give you the option to install the packages within the Sims2Pack into your Downloads folder.
Some advice: Your post is a bit difficult to read and understand. Giving us the exact text of any error messages is usually a good idea.
