Okay, can someone help me? Before installing Showtime I decided to get up to date with 1.33 and then right when it was about to be done it said that it failed. So instead I just started the installation process and it said I needed to patch my game so I clicked okay and a little window popped up saying "Update in process. Please wait..." Well that has been there for a while and I don't have any way of knowing how far the update has gone or if it is even going. Has this happened to anyone else and if so, how long will it take to finish?
If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0.

I'm playing a magician and mostly finding it not as interesting as playing a singer.  Once I've seen her turn her wand into flowers half a dozen times, I've really seen as much as I need to of that particular animation, but she needs to do it a zillion more times in order to advance.  ???

I think it's very weird that Showtime sims can't practice their professions at home before going out into the world.  I wanted to practice in privacy and get reasonably good before performing for other sims, but no, the only way for the magician to advance from level 1 to level 2 is to perform for tips. :o  I was hoping there'd be a magician's props box or something that they could click on to skill at home, just like skilling with any of the ordinary skill objects, but no. 

Would you send a sim who'd never played a single chess game before out to compete in a tournament?  Of course not.  They practice at home for awhile.  I don't know why EA set up the Showtime careers this way.  I mean, with ghost hunting, you pretty much have to learn on the job -- there aren't ghosts causing problems that you can practice on, otherwise.  But singing?  Performing low-level magic tricks?  You can practice those in your living room.

I do love the fail for the doves trick, though.  Raining rubber duckies is pretty darned cute.  ;D

Corylea a magician can practice at home but it takes forever it seems. The bar will raise a little when you do the card and wand tricks. and the other professions can be done too.

Once the magician gets to a certain level and can do the appearing objects illusion, I just have him do that over and over again (I had one female magician who did this all the time without being told) and often he will conjure up a magic gnome. At one point I had a dozen gnomes from him just practicing at home. Plus when they get the mystery box and the glass box, you can place them on the home lot and practice.

Are there child actors?  An insane child can showoff as well as talk to self. Good for acting.

Actually I was thinking of a daredevil.  "Daredevils will receive an 'Adrenaline rush' moodlet after performing 'Watch This' social interaction."

Can a child use the outdoor stage?        I use an insane, inappropriate, daredevil child.

Hi everyone!

I just want to remind all of you that this thread was just a starter topic for Showtime before it was released.  We now have an entire board dedicated to Showtime and some of the posts here should really have their own topics on the Showtime board.  If you've got an actual issue or problem with Showtime, please post it on the Showtime board instead of on this thread. 

Thanks very much.  :)
