Help with expantions. [SOLVED]

Post by Ashley:) on Tue 19 Mar 2013, 05:17

Hi everyone!
I really want to download the new University pack but after downloading the torrent it said "This program cannot be run in DOS mode." Which I belive means that this is supposed to be for Windows only?
Can anyone help? I already have the base game and I have read the "How to install The Sims 3 correctly." but I already have the base?

Thanks in advance Smile

Hello!

Did you use Stuffit Expander to unzip University Life? Is your base game an original game?

Nope I used iZip

If by original you mean I actually got it in stores/payed for it then yes. I also have no other expansions just the base game. Thanks!

As it's said in other posts, it is necessary to use Stuffit Expander to unzip the EP. It's the only application that really extract every item correctly.
After you extract them using this program, you have to create a DMG and copy all the items (NOT THE FOLDER ITSELF!) into the DMG ordering them by kind, so the Installer of the game is in first place.

Thanks so much! I did what you said and now it works Smile
Honestly though your a life saver!

One last question though. Can I eject the DMG/ disk image or would that mess it up?

You're welcome! Very Happy
Yes, you can eject the DMG because the game is already installed and (I guess) the crack is where it has to be.

Happy Simming!
