Installation Instructions!
Each archive contains a new start-up screen for:
The Sims - Livin' Large!

The contents of this archive should be as follows:

Setup.exe - Self-extracting installer
DFReadMe.Txt - The file you are now reading!

*********************************************************
Automatic Installation Instructions!
(if you used the
default Sims Installation location)

The automatic installation assumes you used the default
location when you installed "The Sims", which is:

C:\Program Files\Maxis\The Sims\

If you used the default location, then simply run the
executable (Setup.exe). This will install the bitmap
into the correct location!

*********************************************************
Manual Installation Instructions!
(if you used a
Different Sims Installation location)

If you installed "The Sims" into another location, then
you will need to extract the bitmap (Setup.bmp) from the
self-extracting archive (using WinZip). You will then
need to create two new folders "
UIGraphics" and "Other".
Place the two new folders in the following location:

C:\Program Files\Maxis\The Sims\UIGraphics\Other\

Place the "Setup.bmp" file in this new location. The final
result will appear as follows:

C:\Program Files\Maxis\The Sims\UIGraphics\Other\Setup.bmp
