Advisor panel bug

8 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody! For some reason every time I play sim city 4 on my computer my city planner, public safety and health and education advisors will give me advice. But my financial, utilitiy, traffic and environment advisors won't! This may sound stupid considering that the advisors are annoying. But i always did like the way the utility advisor shook his fist at you. And the game doesn't feel like itself anymore. Could anyone help me with this please?

    In a resintall, only the Program Files folders are overwritten.  If there is data in the Documents folders they remain untouched.

    I do recommend regular archiving of personal stuff however.  One of the cheapest archivers you can get is either winzip or winrar.  If you create a file with either of these, you will almost always be able to unpack it on any system.  I suggest you keep archive files on an offline disk (CD-RW, DVD-RW or an external hard drive).

    J-man-42, did you try the game without any plugins? I ask because I think the "Stupid News Ticker" mod did something like you're experiencing. Did you ever use that? Just a thought...

  • capt city: I use the stupid news ticker mod yes but Ive moved it out of the plugins folder already. A nonny moose: I will see if moving my archive files to cd-rw or dvd-rw works. Brb!

    EDIT: This thread is VERY OLD and should probably be locked by now, I fixed the issue anyway.
