SIMS does not start with the expansion packs

Post by Ester on Sun 10 Feb 2013, 08:16

Hello,

I have SIMS 3 original version and bought 5 disks of expansion pack,
which should have included also SIMS 3 - cracked. I installed all 5
disks, and followed their instructions to launch the game. When trying
to launch it said that no base game installed - I then installed the
original SIMS 3 and used your update and copied ultimate fix. After
the update I got the message that the game was updated successfully.
The game starts, but without any expansion packs. When I restarted the
PC there was the effort to update the origin, but it failed = error
message.

Could you, pls, suggest how this could be fixed?

Thank you.

Ester

Hello,

Did you buy pirated disks by any chance?

The expansion pack is not genuine, the SIMS 3 is genuine.

Hello,

And where did you download the expansions? Which expansions do you have?

I bought SIMS 18 in one, there are following expansions:
Ambitious, Create a Sim, Diesel Stuff, Fast lane Stuff, Generations, High End Loft Stuff, Kate Perry, Late Night, Master Suite, Outdoor Living, Pets, Seasons, Show Time, Supernatural, Town Life, World Advantures. I did not download them, I bought them IN Bangkok - Media Plaza Mall. SIMS 3 original was bought in Europe.

Hello,

Ah I see. I have a feeling that those may be a modified installer, that means you'll be unable to use a patch, or add more expansionpacks.
Would you mind making a screenshot of your base game\bin so we can see what it looks like? A detailed view is preferred.

Hello,

That's definitely a modified installer.
What if you re-download the manual patch from step 2 and then apply it: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Try to start the game afterwards - DO NOT DO ANYTHING ELSE. What happens?
