DCBackup. [SOLVED]

Post by winterluna on Thu 28 Feb 2013, 19:38

So I downloaded The Sims 3 Store Fixes that was offered through this site and opened up the installation guide. I was doing good until I got to number 2:

2. Open (My) Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\DCBackup and find a .package file called "ccmerged.package".
If it’s not there, unrar "ccmerged.package" and place the .package file in this folder. Never rename this package!

When I went to try and find the DCBackup, it's not there. No folder at all. Have I done something wrong in the initial setup for the game or something?

If there's no such folder, that means you haven't yet installed any ".sims3pack"-files (like store items, etc.) and for that you don't need the store fixes Wink

Yes, there will. But apart from the "ccmerged.package"-file, the other files are unnecessary and can be deleted once you istalled ".sims3packs". Wink

So really the only thing I need to focus on is the ccmerged.package?

Well, in addition to that you need to prepare your "Mods" folder for .sims3packs or .package-files: read up on this here:

Hello,

Glad to hear it does.
Enjoy your game and let us know if you need more assistance!

Ps. Next time please keep all your problems regarding the same game in one topic, instead of opening multiple topics! Thank you.
