Package Testing

Filed under: Uncategorized — masteralphonso @ 12:47 am

Package Testing is a popular feature of WooHoo and a large subject. And since this feature has been (mostly) unlocked it makes sense to have a separate page for it. (The exact error is shown in the package viewer and is still locked out.)

Post here your success stories, questions, suggestions, insights, comments and desires about package testing. I’m sure everyone would be interested in your experiences with package testing.

Note: Package testing is not an exact science and will be continuously enhanced as new embedded files become supported by WooHoo and new information is acquired. Currently these file types are tested: package; png; txtr; dir. All embedded files are also tested for decompression errors.

A quick package primer:
A package file is basically just a container. It contains any number and kinds of embedded files. These embedded files contain the intelligence that creates a feature in your game. Hence, there can be an infinite variety of package files. The package file can have errors in it structure and each embedded file can also have errors. These errors may or may not cause your game to crash, behave strangely or maybe even have no apparent effect.

Please see the ‘Quick Start’ page for testing instructions.



  1. _EnableColorOptionsGMND.package duplicate directory entry

    Everyone is probably wondering about this error. This file has two different embedded files that have the identical ID’s. This error will cause one of the embedded files to be inaccessible to the game. HugeLunitic found that one of them is a underwater pool light. I assume this error will prevent that object from being recolorable. I’m not sure if the author (Numenor) knows of this issue or not.

  4. I have installed Woohoo on my Mac and it crashes every time I try to run a test. Also I would like to know how when I do a smart back up I lose a lot of the files I downloaded from a previous back up? I do a lot of downloading from other Sims2 sites for Clothes, objects etc. so I am constantly doing backups of the new downloads. How do I keep all my downloads together when doing a back up? And if I were to uninstall WooHoo, would I lose all my files? If someone can answer these questions I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
