Yippe Yippe Yippe!!!! Me and my low tech self(LOL) found out what I had to do to get the files recognized. When I deleted the files and replaced with the copies it worked. Don't if that is the way to do it but it worked.
I'm off to Hidden Springs now to put my family in and hope no freezes.
I forgot to say that I had put Town Life on too, but I hadn't had any freezes until Hidden Springs.
I keep the testingcheatsenabled true on most of the time should I turn it off with false. I read that some where that it can mess with the game, only saw it once.
