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:

Good luck Smile
