It's recommended that you have a No-CD/Cracked executable of Sims 2 M&G to use this launcher!

Custom Sims 2 Launcher that includes some quality of life changes, customization, more modern in-game graphics, a real fix for Firstborn Syndrome, and more!

This is a custom launcher for The Sims 2 that includes a lot of new customization and modding options. You can enable Rich Presence so your friends on Discord can see what you're up to, play in borderless mode to easily alt tab, change the price of the design tool to your liking, among other things.

All features below are modifiable via a Settings application that will launch automatically the first time you boot Sims2RPC.

Better Live Mode Camera
Like in The Sims 3, better, less restrictive camera rotation controls.

Discord Rich Presence
If you have Discord open, it shows what you're up to on TS2 on your status! (Live mode, who you're playing as, how much money you have, what neighborhood you're in, buy mode, build mode, etc.)

First-born Syndrome Fix
Perhaps one of the oldest bugs in the game, the random sequence for genetics in The Sims 2 is not properly randomized, this leads to your first born, second born, third born, etc. babies in your play session to always come out the same. Up until now, we've had to do workarounds like going into CAS and hitting randomization a few times, no more! Included in this launcher is a file that gets injected into Sims 2, and via memory editing it alters the function inside of the game's executable that advances this broken random sequence to be actually completely random! Now babies will always be different and varied, without you having to do anything weird!
In-depth explanation

Borderless Mode
Quick alt tabbing!

Improved Graphics
Higher resolution shadows and lot imposters can be toggled via the settings.

No more "Too many Iterations"
The SimAntics too many iterations limit has been bumped up, so this error should no longer be an issue.

Design Tool custom pricing
No more $15 recolors, unless that's what you want!

EP Choosing
Experimental feature that allows you to disable EPs from the launcher, allowing you to, for example, create CAS lots.

The installer version of the launcher will automatically download the latest version and locate your Sims 2 folder with just one click, then prompt you to create shortcuts and launch Sims2RPC. If it's your first time booting the launcher, you will also be prompted to configure it to your liking.

Installation (Manual version):
  1. Extract the contents of the zip file in your Mansion & Garden TSBin folder, located in "The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection\Fun with Pets\SP9\TSBin" for Ultimate Collection users or "The Sims 2 Mansion and Garden Stuff\TSBin" for disc uesrs.
  2. Every time you want to play with these fixes, launch the game via Sims2RPC.exe.

Usage and Configuration:
  1. Every time you want to play with these fixes, or every time you want to play Sims 2, launch the game via Sims2RPC.exe.
  2. You can configure the features by opening the Sims2RPCSettings.exe application.
  3. You can test the Firstborn Syndrome fix in-game by going into CAS or a family and playing with genetics/having a baby, babies should now always be completely random, no need to roll the pacifier or generate random Sims anymore!
  4. You can edit the config.txt file to completely customize the text displayed on Discord Rich Presence!
  5. You can make a shortcut to Sims2RPC with command line parameters and they will get passed to The Sims 2.

Troubleshooting and FAQ:
  1. Enhanced imposter quality might cause crashes for some people. If this is the cause for you, try switching to Medium instead.
  2. If the launcher crashes, you might need to download the latest C++ Package from Microsoft: https://aka.ms/vs/16/release/vc_redist.x86.exe
  3. If the updater or settings app crashes, you might need to download the latest .NET Framework from Microsoft: https://dotnet.microsoft.com/downlo...ramework/net472
  4. If resolution looks stretched/too low or weird in any way: Fix instructions
  5. Make sure the launcher is in TSBin, and not in its own folder.
  6. You can try repairing the launcher with Sims2RPCUpdater.exe.
  7. You can download updates manually from https://github.com/LazyDuchess/Sims2RPC.com/releases and replace your RPC files with those.
