SecuROM and The Sims 2 have a very notorious history, and although EA recently released The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection for free, SecuROM (a form of DRM) is attached to the game. The folks over at ReclaimYourGame.com have some details and instructions on how to remove the DRM from your game.
As you may know, EA released a full collection of our beloved Sims 2 and decided to give it away free to anyone who had Sims 2 registered in their Origin account… then because of the high demand, they decided to give it to anyone who had an Origin account. What they didn’t tell anyone was that they had implemented SecuROM into the mix.
So, EA did their usual and didn’t inform us of them doing this, and here I was worried about having to have ORIGIN on my PC… I didn’t even think to check for SecuROM.
When Maryh mentioned to me that some simmers were asking if there was SecuROM in the new Sims2 version I decided to take a look under the hood. I then found EA had put SecuROM Version 07.40.0009 in their nice Free Sims2 Ultimate Collection which they plan to sell in their store soon.
