Hi.

Does anybody know if the Sims 2 works while Remote assistance is running?

If not, know how to make it to work?

Don't see why not but as that game is very heavy on system resources, might might not be any processor time left to respond to any remote assistance requests :tazz:

RA starts, but all the person assisting me can see is a big blue window where the Sims 2 is. I also checked memory and CPU usage and they seemed okay.

Does it have some kinda piracy protection thing built in? :tazz:

I don't think that would be protection that would be RA unable to display it.

Have you tried running the game in windowed mode?

Right-click on The Sims 2 icon on your desktop and choose Properties.
On the target line at the very end add a space and then type -w.
Click on Apply, then click ok.

Oh... lol. I'm creating a sim for my friend and they want to know what i'm doing. I've also tried using application sharing, but that doesn't work either.
