Sims 2

Okay, I don’t know anything about downloading illegal copies of games, software, etc. But, I desperately want SIMS 2. I would buy it, but its too expensive. I sorta understand emulators and know that you need to have certain programs to make/run bootleg copies of stuff.

So what I would like to know from you guys is this:

  1. Where is a link to a downloadable version of Sims 2
  2. Once I download then I install it, do I need to have Alcohol 120? What else?
  3. What is an emulator exactly and why are there so many diff progs for running this one game? I never had this much trouble getting an illegal rom of Pokemon yellow 3 years ago.

Thank you so much if you can help me. I’ve been searching the internet and most everything I read, I can’t even understand the process I will need to have a working copy on my pc. verdana
