Sims 3 will not load after launcher.

Post by dylansevenfold on Sun 24 Feb 2013, 23:00

The problem came after installing Generations.

After I click the launcher it starts up, and then when I click play it closes the launcher, but nothing after that. I've applied the Ultimate Fix, and my game has the latest update.

A few other things to add;

I have all expansions, with the exception of Late Night, Showtime, High End Loft Stuff, and Outdoor stuff. I am still waiting for those four things to download. But on my launcher at the bottom it only highlights 3 expansions as being installed, and the base game is not one of them.

Also, it shows that I have the most resent game update and I know I have it because I just installed it last night and then applied the fix today, but after about 20 seconds it is telling me to update to Version 1.22 which is from May of 2011.

My computer is new, as in just a few days old, it MORE THAN meets the requirments to run Sims 3. I haven't had any issues what so ever until installing Generations. I usually can figure out how to fix issues, as I have all expansion on my Laptop, which is why I am here, because I cannot for the life of me figure out why this is happening.

If any more information is needed to help solve this problem, let me know!

Thanks.

Well, since you're already doing so, make sure to restart your computer before re-installing.

I would have just had you re-download and apply both the patch and the fix again, to see if that would help, since that's what generally causes the greyed out expansions (an outdated crack).

Fixed!

I've always tried to avoid uninstalling all the games, but I guess sometimes thats the only way..

Though, the grayed out expansions are still there at the bottom of the launcher, but I'm not all that concerned with that. The game is up and running now.

However.. I wasn't able to start via the Launcher, again not that I'm too concerned with that.. I've heard that sometimes the laucnher just won't work, true?

Anyway, if I have anymore issues when the other expansions completely downloan I will post again. Thanks!

Hello,

After doing step 2 here, the icons should be lit up again on the launcher: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly (RE-DOWNLOAD the manual patch!) - Can you confirm this?

When you try to start the game after doing the above, you'll get an "Please insert disc" error, right?
