High End Loft Stuff Did Not Install Properly

Post by bmandrummer on Fri 08 Feb 2013, 03:43

I followed your steps in the "how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly" post, installing Sims 3 and Master Suite Stuff. The game launched and i was able to play it fine with no problems. I then downloaded / installed Diesel Stuff. It worked fine as well. I then downloaded High End Loft Stuff. However, when i launch Sims 3, the Diesel Stuff splash screen still shows, and the new items for High End Loft Stuff are not in my game. This is very frustrating. I like Sims, but my wife likes it even better. She had a stroke and spends a lot of time playing games on Facebook, but she gets annoyed with the server-sided games there (maintenance, etc). So i wanted to get this working (with all of the expansions) so she can enjoy life a little more. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance!!

The diesel stuff loading screen would show, since it's the most recently released game that you have installed. Are you sure that the HElS items aren't in your game? If you're unsure, one way to check if it installed properly is to open your launcher, find the HELS icon on the bottom (It's a green one) and see if it's highlighted, either just by looking, or by hovering over to see if it has a game version.

Thank you for your quick response. The HELS icon IS at the bottom of the launch screen. All of the EPs that i have installed (Master Suite, Diesel Stuff and HELS) are all highlighted - as well as the Sims 3 base game. I will go ahead and launch again and see if the items from HELS are there. When i installed HELS, the installation guide said that after the EP is installed you will need to launch Sims 3 and do the update before copying / pasting the .exe and .dll files into the Sims 3 base folder. However, there was no update when the launch page came up. I will go back into the game and check on those items. Thank you again!

Hello,

The installation guides that come with the downloads have become obsolete, so please follow these up-to-date instructions at all time: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Thank you and good luck!
