I know its probably a bit late now but for other users who may have the same problem, have you tried ctrl + shift + alt. This sometimes works. I also sometimes have to use ctrl + alt + shift + c. Dont know why this happens it just does Standard smile x Hope this helps x

I am having kind of the same problem. My C key broke, but i have an onscreen keyboard, and I was wondering if it would work on that? If anyone knows any other ways to access it, that would be great!

Shiandara, Oh man.. thank you so much for finding what was causing the conflict! I have Gyazo and didn't realize it had a short cut for screen capture! I have changed the settings on that and now the input window pops up for me.

how do you enable origin in gameplay and repair the game? I can't find anything under the gameplay options that would achieve this. sorry if this is a dumb question.

I'm running the game on a Mac, i also can't get the cheat box to open...never had any issues with TS3, and I always make sure Sims is the only program running when I use it. Could it be an issue of the right shift key vs the left shift key? I can't imagine that this would make a difference since it didn't in TS3 but it's the only thing I can think of (my left shift key is broken). I did try reprogramming my keyboard to make a different button the left shift key, and that didn't work either.

Please help!

What command are you using ? CMD-SHIFT-C or CTL-SHIFT-C (which would be correct) ?

I'm having this problem on my Mac as well! 

 

The command to bring up the cheat box on a mac is supposed to be COMMAND-SHIFT-C... but it's not working. Nothing happens at all. 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

OMG MAC USERS. 

 

I was just holding down random buttons and I got it to work! 

 

Try... 

 

SHIFT-CONTROL-C 

 

I know that's not supposed to work on a Mac. But for some reason it worked on mine. Mind = Blown. 


Good luck everyone!

I am on a mac also, I've tried all of the suggestions in this post. I still can't get the cheat window to come up. I never had a problem with this in the sims 3, but couldn't open the cheat window in the sims 2 ultimate collection.
