    Have to Press control+shift+C+windows button all at once for Vista. Not true, as I run Vista and have been able to enter all these cheats with having to press the windows button. I don't know what idiot came up with that.

    when your sim is stuck click shift, ctrl and c at the same time. A dialogue bar will appear( dark blue and the screen will get darker) type in 'resetsim "Sims name"'and press enter. that shud work :) (and type it in without the quotation)

    I found out yesterday. haha First: Go to the Town Map 2: Click on City Hall > Interact > Change Name. From there you should be able to choose the sim of which has the name that you would like to change. Hope this helped. : )

    hay i'm trying to find out a way of changing the sims names during game play if anybody knows can you please let me know :-)

    @GTAGIRL and Carlin724 If the window isn't popping up after pressing Ctrl+Shift+C , then the problem is probably your computer. I had a Vista before and the cheats wouldn't pop up either. Hope it helped. :)

    is this game worth 60$?
  • EddieHimself - September 11, 2010 9:23 a.m.

    also I don't really understand why the "disablesnappingtoslotsonalt" should be a cheat anyway, imo it should just be part of the game, it's great lolz

    I would like to point out that the free cop car cheat works on any law enforcement job selected at lieutenant level or above so you don't have to become a spy. Also if the mailbox cheat isn't working, you have to type in "testingcheatsenabled true" from the MAIN MENU, before you load your game!

    I have rotten food in my inventory and can't get it out, like eggs and fruit. Any ideas?

  • oryandymackie - July 16, 2009 6:44 p.m.

    @beckieboo. That actually made me laugh.
  • oryandymackie - July 16, 2009 6:44 p.m.

    I heard that you could drive cars in this game? And when is the Sims 3 coming out for 360??

  • 1bailey3 - June 20, 2009 7:59 p.m.

    i type in the testingcheatsenabled but when i try the other cheats they don't work
  • Carlin724 - June 13, 2009 2:45 a.m.

    GTAGIRL are you sure it isn't popping up. I know on my laptop you cant really see the cheat code bar. Make sure you are pressing Ctrl + Shift + C all at the same time
  • ncioffi1 - June 3, 2009 9:19 p.m.
