After installment question!

Post by xtph on Wed 13 Mar 2013, 22:32

First I apologize if this's been asked before, I looked around the forum but I didn't find any answer related.

So, I'm currently installing the S3 plus 3 eps, following (of course Very Happy) Admin's wonderful instructions , but I have one question left: what if i want to install another ep in the future??

I've played the S3 in the past but this is the first time I'm adding eps, so i don't want to overwhelm my game (and cpu) with everything at once...

Please

.....And
would it help if I save a copy of the files to be replaced by the
ultimate fix? ...I just dont want to reinstall the whole game every new
ep i add. (supposing that's the answer to my prev question)

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?

Well I'm more sorry about my even later reply!
But yes, I would really appreciate your assistance, I promise I'll keep up with the thread this time Smile

I just downloaded Generations (and of course I'm also expecting the new EP soon to be released!) and I promised my lil sis I was going to try to install it for her.

That been said
Thank you in advance
I know you're busy with RL so I really appreciate your interest in taking into account this post.

It's perfectly fine to add on expansions, just follow those installation instructions (steps 2-4) again, and there shouldn't be any issues. Also, when applying the fix, just do the #crack folder. The rest of the files are the original game files, so that you could update using the launcher, and are wholly unnecessary when using the manual patch. Smile

Please let us know how it goes for you, and if you have any problems.

Oh! It's also recommended to backup your save files "Documents/Electronic Arts/Sims 3/Saves" just in case anything weird does happen.
