Installing Town Life Stuff/Generations

Post by ChaoticNemisis on Wed 06 Mar 2013, 16:50

Okay. I got My sims through a torrent by Acopyforall, which contains the base game(I easily got it to work.) and a list of others, put below. It is stated in the torrent installation that I need to install each expansion in the order that they came out. I believe this order on the torrent description to be the correct order.
2. The Sims 3: World Adventures
3. The Sims 3: High-End Loft Stuff
4. The Sims 3: Ambitions
5. The Sims 3: Fast Lane Stuff
6. The Sims 3: Late Night
7. The Sims 3: Outdoor Living Stuff
8. The Sims 3: Generations
9. The Sims 3: Town Life Stuff

I started installing the expansions and instantly was told (tried for the first 3 there) that I needed to update my Sims 3 to install them. I didn't know of this manual patch here, so I used the EADownloader to update. BTW worked fine. Was able to install everything up to Outdoor Living without incident. I installed outdoor, and got a message saying that it was out of date, and would need to be updated in the launcher (or was how I read it). Again, worked like a charm (tough didn't play because I didn't have one of the NEEDED expansions.) My generations hasn't downloaded yet, so I just jumped to TLS, but got an installation warning. I'll quote to the best of my memory.

Your Sims version is more up-to-date than this expansion. to properly install this expansion, you must download it's update (or download it itself, can't remember) from the launcher AFTER installing this(the disc).

SO I did. There was nothing to install/download from the launcher. So I thought I'd just input the fixes in the expansion folder, when I saw what I had to deal with. The 1.17(or so)GB disc installed about 130MB to the whole expansion folder. No TDLHost(or whatever it's called) or folders where in the bin file directory. I still installed the fixes, bringing size up to 135MB, thinking I might still at least be able to play. NOPE... Unless I did something wrong, but I followed all instructions to the letter. I will uninstall all the expansions to play if I have to, but I would love to run expansions, because I have never played a sims game with expansions, and thus lots more stuff. I couldn't find anything about this in the forums. I tried searching a few things, though I didn't pain stakingly search each thread that might have half a percent chance of even having something remotely about this.

HELP?

I will try that. Didn't know if it was exactly like the one I downloaded. Will see if it works. Will try it a few ways just to be sure it works. I figured it was for those whom couldn't download the patch through the launcher XP.

TY again.

EDIT: If it still doesn't work, then i will post a screenshot or two.

//EDIT

That didn't work, But I somehow managed to pull off some sort of
wizardry and it does, but Only when I don't use the TS3W crack... Wierd.
Mabee the manual played a part, but didn't work in itself.

Just glad to get it working again. TY admin. I dance the irish jig for you.

EDIT:
Wait. scratch that. It asks for the disk once i'm in the world loading
screen. think my TS3W is out of date. downloading latest ultimate fix. I
feel like a right now.

EDIT:
OKAY. that fixed everything. At least untill I got to loading my
character from before all this updating. seames to just have stopped.
Will wait 5, and try again... Just took a really long time.

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply!
Unfortunately we were not able to get back to you in time. I'd like to apologize for that.

Do you still need assistance?
