NOT to update yet! There's not a fix out yet, so if you update, your game will NOT work until Admin posts the new fix.

this might be nothing but when I started up my sims3 launcher it says there is an update "TS3EP303_6.5.1.011037" but when I click update nothing happens, I tried going into Origin as I bought most of the my sims 3 game through there but there's nothing there. And at the bottom where it shows which expansions you have it only shows up to Late night (when I have up to 70's, 80's, 90's stuff). So I was wondering if WHEN this ultimate fix comes out it will fix this or if it's something else?

you can update, Razz just, replace the crack files for original ones, then update the game, put the noCD mod, and that's it, well, that's how I did it (the thing is that I can't play from the launcher but from the application file)

not crack files, you need to have original files instead of crack files, you can download them here:
and noCD: http://nraas.wikispaces.com/NoCD
You put that on Mods/Packages folder

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply!
It's not recommended to use the NoCD Mod as a permanent solution.
Anyhow, we've updated the manual patch and the Ultimate Fix, just re-do these instructions to fix your game: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Anything else we can currently help you with?
