Sims 3 Fast Lane Disc Error, even with NEW ultimate Sims fix!! Please Assist!

Post by AshAsh83 on Wed 04 May 2011, 02:11

Okay, I'm a bit new to the whole world of torrents and winrar and that good stuff, but I believe I've got the basics.
For future purposes, I run on Windows Vista 64bit.

Anyways, to my problem.
I previously downloaded the Sims 3 and the World Adventures Expansion pack with store bought discs. Unfortunately, I no longer have the original Sims 3 disc anymore, but I do have the WA expansion pack disc, and I usually just leave it in to play the game. I think I registered both games, and have a Sims 3 account.
So, recently I looked into downloading copies of the Fast Lane and Late Night Expansion packs from the website, because I wanted to see whether they were worth going out and buying the copy, I support EA games so I would eventually like to buy them if I like them. However, they download reaaaaallly slowly using u-Torrent, and it takes hours. Eventually, I just decided to download one at a time.
First I did Fast Lane and I followed the helpful little instructions note that was in the pack after I unzip or winrar-ed the file or whatever. I went along, installed the game with the little set-up thing, then let it go. I got to the point where it wanted to update my original game, and then when it had just about finished uploading....it gave me an error message.
Mad Mad
So. I came to the website, and LUCKILY there was the ultimate Sims 3 fixer upper or whatever, so I dowloaded that and then used the codes and such there to reinstall my game. THANKFULLY the game fully uploaded this time.
But, just when I go to play it, I get a disc read error message going on!!
Am I not meant to even experience this game?!

Just so you know, I'm still downloading the Late Night expansion pack in my u Torrent, so hopefully if I can get an answer I can bypass all errors with that game and just play the dang thing already.

Admin help would be much appreciated. If you need me to elaborate or anything just ask.
However, remember, I don't have the original Sims 3 disk to download the whole game again, just the WA disc.

Admin edit: Double-topic-post, one deleted. Topic moved to right section.

Hello,

First of all; welcome to this Forum and the world of torrenting.
Well, for the fix to work, you also need to install our Outdoor Living Stuff and Late Night expansions, I'm afraid.
This is the correct order (Ignore if you have already installed one of the game):

Hello,

Please do as following:

1. Install The Sims 3 base game.
2. Install Outdoor Living Stuff.*
3. Install Late Night.*
4. Install any other expansions you like. (For WA, just skip the "# Crack" folder)
5. Apply this fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-latest-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems
6. Your game should be working fine now!

* = These expansions must be installed in order to make the game work.

Please tell me if something is not clear enough. Good luck!

Okay. So should I uninstall the fast lane game and then reinstall the games in that order for them to work?
If so, I will go download them and try it, although with my connection speed, I probably won't be able to tell you the results until tomorrow, but I will definitely try it.

//EDIT

Rolling Eyes At the moment its saying like 3 days or some nonsense for ETA of the Late Night game. Sheesh. I haven't even started the Outdoor living stuff yet.

Hello,

No need to reinstall anything. Just skip the steps that you have already done.

Okay, I installed the game and what not, but it still comes up with a "please insert disc" error.
Since I didn't have to install the base game or WA, was I still supposed to change the files, but not the ones from the crack, that were in the Ultimate fix package for those games as well? I'm going to try it anyways...

//EDIT

Nope. That didn't change the error message either. UGh!
Okay, i downloaded the torrents, going in order from outdoor, to LN, and so on.
Then I installed the games.
Then I opened the fix files and copy and pasted them in there.
I opened the game, checked for an update, and it said i didn't need one. it was like 7 somehtin'.
Then I closed up the game, and put the cracks in to replace THOSE files.
Annnnnnnddd nothin.

Hello,

Please note that you need to put each file to an other, different folder. Read the included "# Installation Guide.pdf" véry carefully on where exactly to put WHICH files. If you do that correctly, you won't get the "Please insert DVD" error.

Okay, in the guide, for each game it says put the corresponding .rar files into their own C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\"whichever games"\Game\Bin.
I did that for each game. Then, I opened the #crack for each file and did the same, copying over the files I just put in it, like it said in the instructions. What am I doing wrong now??

//EDIT

I did not apply the cracks in the base game and world adventures though, cause they were bought. But I did apply the .rar files.

Hello,

First of all, excuses for my late reply.
No, the guide doesn't say that you need to put the .rár file in those locations, bút the Cracks (a .exe and a .dll file). You shouldn't do anything with the .rar files, just leave them on your Desktop. Read the instructions very carefully.

Please tell me if you still have any problems.

"For The Sims 3 - Late Night: open the "Late Night" folder in this .rar file and drag & drop both files in there to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 Late Night\Game\Bin and choose "Replace" on the pop-up that appears, telling you the files already exist."
Is what the instructions said. Nothing about leaving them on the desktop.
And then:
"Open the "# Crack" folder in this .rar file and apply all* cracks for the game(s) you have installed on your system. (Just do as described in step 1 to 9, but now with the folders in the "# Crack" folder)"
which looked like the same types of files.
So what I did was open the place where it said in the instructions and copied and pasted the two files from the folder of the game from the .rar file into that place, for all the games, then went back and did the same with the cracks.

//EDIT

Ugh.
Is there another step by step thing I can do with your guys, because there is obviously a communication problem here between me and the installation guide. No

Hello,

You're clearly misunderstanding the guide; "For The Sims 3 - Late Night: open the "Late Night" folder IN THIS .RAR FILE (So not the .rar file itself) and drag & drop both files in there to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 Late Night\Game\Bin and choose "Replace" on the pop-up that appears, telling you the files already exist."

But it's OK, I can fix the problem for you via TeamViewer. You should join the chatbox when I'm online on the Forum. I'll then join you too in a few minutes. Also, you can send me a remind via PM. If I do not respond, I'm probably already away and my account is still showing as "Online".

Hello,

Yes, on the Forum you'll see the little "Online" banner over my avatar. On the website though, the Live Support service isn't working any more.
No need to uninstall anything, I'll fix everything that's necessary.
