Sims 2: Family Fun Stuff, The - NOTES


Total votes: 56
Some new Cheat Codes were added to "Family Fun Stuff" expansion.
Some of them do not exist in the previous Expansion Packs.

Most of the Cheat Codes listed here will function on the Original game
& all of the Expansions Packs. However, these codes were found
specifically in the "Family Fun Stuff" executable file. Certain
options for certain codes may Require some or all of the Expansions t
be installed. And a few may only be usable on this expansion itself.

[purge if else elseif endif set]
There are many alias/scripting related
commands, but we do not believe they will help
you cheat.

1. Start the game.

2. Open the game Cheat Console:
Hit Ctrl-Shift-C hold Ctrl & Shift, then press C.

A CONSOLE window should open with a cursor.

3. Enter your codes.

You may type PART of a command such as the first few letters and then hit
the TAB key to fill in the best matching command ala 4DOS/4NT woot woot.
Also, the Up/Down arrow keys cycle through previous commands.

The various Codes can be ineffective in certain areas of the game.
For instance, some Codes are only effective on the Neighborhood Screen,
while others require a Family to be loaded & a person to be selected.

4. Type "exit" / "hide" or hit the ESCAPE key to leave the console.
