Problems with update 1.50

Post by Spankydoodles on Mon 18 Mar 2013, 11:49

I am having problems getting all of my expansion packs to work right since updating to 1.50. I followed the steps on this web site and the steps that came with the Ultimate Fix the first time I updated. After I updated and applied the fix I tried to install some new worlds on my launcher and my launcher would freeze and close. So instead I tried to just go into the game but that too froze and closed. So I completely uninstalled all of my expansions, original game and put all my custom content in other folder out of the way. I first installed my original The Sims 3 (which is store bought with original code) and I tried to update that before I installed any of my downloaded expansions. Origin would open and appear to be downloading but when it stopped it would just bring up the launcher and say that there is a software update, would you like to update, yada yada. I did this at least three times. So I downloaded and manually installed the update. That went fine. After the update installed I added my expansions (Generations, Late Night, Pets, Supernatural, and Seasons). I than applied the Ultimate Fix taking the two files from the folder that includes Supernatural and Seasons, and put them in the original game folder bin, and NOT the expansion folder. I than opened the launcher again. Down at the bottom where it shows you which games you have installed I am missing Supernatural and Seasons. Tried again to start the game to see if Supernatural or Seasons show up, but instead of the Seasons start screen I only see pets. Than it freezes and quits. I have went through the steps over and over again but it's not working.

I could use some advice on this, or maybe someone who has had this problem and fixed it. Thank you for your time.

Well, the fixes folders are all but useless (with our instructions) anymore EXCEPT for the #crack folder. The rest are only there for if you want to try updating through the launcher, and don't need to be touched. So overwrite what you did by putting the #crack where those files are.
