something i have noticed in other games is that if u are running xp media center or u have an infared device on ur laptop (only laptops tend to have them) then it interfers with consoles comming up in games, i suggest trying to disable any infared device and trying again
Is there a cheat that sets the hunger, energy, fun, etc... all to perfect? Is there possibly one that keeps it perfect all the time?
Use "testingcheatsenabled true", Shift-Click on your mailbox and set motives to static. They are maxed automatically and won't go down until you shut down your game (or set motives to dynamic of course).
