Article Update
(updated October 11th)

Just a note to say that I have updated this Extra with a couple of new observations, mainly to do with Windows XP Service Pack 2 (and the NTFS filesystem). In a nutshell, and in my own experience, this seems to be causing Sims 2 to stop working under certain hardware combinations in WinXP. I would be interested to know if SP2's new drivers killed your game - please also include which graphic card you have as well. Forget not to read the revised extra too :) A little revision about the indexing options as well that become available on an NTFS formatted drive.

I have not experienced any new problems since I downloaded the SP2. The graphic card in my PC is a DDR ATI Radeon 9800 PRO.

My game used to crash and restart the game before I installed SP2 when I updated the drivers so I had to roll them back just to stop the game restarting. It's because my Graphics driver is a Geforce 460 so i'm getting a new one anyway.
