What is the serial number for The Sims?

The serial number for The Sims 2 and its expansion packs is located on the back of the booklet that came in the box with each game. The serial number for The Sims 1 and its expansion packs is located on the back of the CD case for each game. You will know it is your serial code because it is a long mix of numbers and letters separated by dashes that seem to make no sense at all, usually 16 characters. Each and every game has its own serial number.

You will not find "free" serial codes for a pirated copy of The Sims (or expansion packs) on WikiAnswers. This is just as illegal as pirating, even if you already own the game legally but need a new serial (read below on how to obtain one if so). Anyone found posting serial numbers on WikiAnswers may be blocked from this site and reported to the proper officials and/or EA company.

You cannot install these games and their expansion packs without the serial number. When installing the game, follow the on screen instructions. There will come a box that asks you for your serial number - this is where you will enter the number and installation will continue. You can't play the game at all if you don't install it with a serial number. You must also use this same serial number in order to register to The Sims website where you can interact with their forum and download free community objects. You can't register there without that serial number.

If you lost your original serial number for your game or expansion packs, contact EA Games at the website below and they will help you to obtain one. You may need a copy of your original sales receipt, but they will give you more instruction on what they will require before allowing you a new serial number. If you registered your game during a previous installation, you can also recover your serial number from the EA web site.

Where can you download Pixel Shader 1.1?

Pixel shader 1.1 (and later variants) are hard-coded into the video card and its drivers. If you have a fast processor and a good amount of ram, you may be able to get around the pixel shader requirement by downloading "3DAnalyze" and "Swiftshader 2.0" to emulate pixel shader.

More likely, the best option is for you to simply replace your video card with one which has native support for pixel shader. The above answer is dead on target! Let me add to this fire....... Although there are work-arounds to the pixel shader, it is ill-advised to download a patch or third party software to achieve what comes nativley in the newer vidio cards. The compitition is so tough in the industry, what would have been a top of the line video card last month, is now the cheapest card on the shelf! Remember that even if you do get a third party software to achieve what it is that you want in a display, the OS and computer will have to work harder to maintain the demands of not only the third party software, but any additional workload that the software generates. Memory allocation is reduced because the demand of the third party software is memory intensive. Thus, reduced performance. Emulatores do not work with every game, applications or systems. Not to mention, calling on the drivers to perform out of their scope, can also lead to corrupt system files and fragmentation of the system partition. Emulators temporarily "change" critical system and driver files per demand, to allow the system to adapt to the new drivers and dll files offered by the emulator. After the emulator is no longer needed, some times, the files don't get "put back" or restored to the defaults, and you have a mess on your hands! Listen to the answerer above, and get a new card! You need to get a better graphics card. However there is a way around it.

has a tutorial for getting over the problem Pixel Shader is a hardware capability. Therefore, it is not possible to download it - it must be supported by the graphics card. To answer your question directly, you will need to install a graphics card that supports Pixel Shaders to be able to run games which need it. Most modern games utilize Pixel Shader 2.0 or greater, so it would not be advisable to purchase older ones. The following cards support Shader Model 1.x: - ATI Radeon 85xx Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 9000 Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 9100 Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 92xx Series (1.4) - NVIDIA GeForce3 Ti (1.1) - NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti (1.3) The following cards support Shader Model 2.0: - ATI Radeon 95xx Series - ATI Radeon 96xx Series - ATI Radeon 9700 Series - ATI Radeon 9800 Series - ATI Radeon X7xx Series (2.0b) - ATI Radeon X8xx Series (2.0b) - NVIDIA GeForceFX Series (2.0a) The following cards support Shader Model 3.0: - ATI Radeon X1x00 Series - NVIDIA GeForce 6 Series - NVIDIA GeForce 7 Series The Vertex Shader and Pixel Shader are hardware capabilities, and therefore cannot be downloaded. A new graphics card, with the Vertex Shader and Pixel Shader technology, is the way to solve the problem. However, an Emulator can be downloaded in order to use games that require it. These programs are hard to find, and are mostly slow.

Can lesbians have children?

Yes, lesbians can have children in many ways:

1. Artificial Insemination, in which sperm is injected into the uterus of the lesbian

2. In the case of a couple, the two women can decide to take the egg/s from one of them, fertilize it with a donor sperm in a test tube (in-vitro), and then implant the fertilized egg (embryo), into the other woman's uterus. This way, the baby has both a birth mother and a genetic/biological mother.

3. Many lesbians choose to adopt children.

4. Many lesbians who want to skip the whole medical thing can have utilitarian sexual intercourse with a male friend (often gay, too).

5. Many lesbians end up in relationships with lesbians who already have kids from previous (failed heterosexual) relationships and can choose to adopt them and co-parent.

And, though currently illegal in the U.S., research is currently being conducted on mammals in which they use no sperm at all and can successfully merge two eggs from two females. In the next few years this type of research will become less controversial and hopefully lesbian couples will have the opportunity to birth their own biological child with the half their genetics from one mother and half from the other.

There are many options available. Most of them are controversial to varying degrees. Adoption is probably the most common option. The adoption can be anywhere on the scale from a legally sanctioned private adoption to a completely informal adoption (not a very good idea). In some cases, one of the women may simply have a non-committed sexual relationship with a man in order to get pregnant.

With modern technology, lesbians have many more options than they used to. They may have a child with another man through IVF (Invitro Fertilization) (ie. a test-tube baby) in order to avoid the sexual non-monogamy which some couples may regard as a form of betrayal. There are some very early experimental methods that can allow two women to both be biological parents of the child. They involve taking eggs from both of the women, using chemicals to transform one of the eggs into a sperm, and then fertilizing the egg with the sperm under a microscope. Then the embryo is implanted back into the uterus of one of the women.

Whatever option they choose, there are many legal problems for homosexual parents. It is important to ensure that BOTH parents have legal custody of the child. There have been some very sad situations where one parent has died or lost custody of the child for some reason, and the other parent has had no rights to the child. In this situation, the child's custody will go to the legal parent's next of kin, who can legally make the decision to separate the child permanently from its loving parents, even against the child's will. This type of situation will continue to happen until America (and other countries) allows EVERYONE the right to legally marry the person the love, regardless of their orientation.

What are placeholder sims for?

Well, when i use a placeholder sim it's usually for a story or a sims challenge. in most cases the "Placeholder" is just there because you can't have a sim without being related to an adult sim. so for instance,

you make a female teen and her mom, and then you make a male teen but you don't want them to be siblings. you can make a placeholder sim be the male teen's parent so he is not related in anyway to the female teen.

Is the Sims resource legal?

No, in fact, it is not.
