the sims 3 installation ok but...

Post by garod on Fri 20 May 2011, 02:10

Hello!

First of all, i would like to thank you for all your work and your help! I'm new to download games (this was my first time) and after i read many of your posts i manage to download the sims 3 and all the expantions.
Only that, i uninstall the ea manager. will that makes me have problems in the future? if yes how can i install only ea manager? (the game runs great!)
I have an other question or issue... (I moved in Sunset Valley,dont know if matters but i mention it) as i read, if i go for dinner,drink or somewhere else, not seeing inside the buildings is normal. But... i went to 2 friend's parties and i could only see people standing outside of the house.Couldn't interact with anyone or see anything inside the house! That's normal too??? (i had the walls off)
Sorry to ask but i find it very strange and i dont think i did something wrong with the installation... (i didn't get any updates from launcher,but i think that was because i uninstall the ea manager.

Did you click on the house to ask the owner to get in? Because you have to be invited inside before you can see anything.

No i didn't... Doesn't count the invitation my friend did me some hours ago? when i arrive in his house i must ask permition to get in? I'll try it ...

Welll i went to an other party and nothing... I respont "i'll be there" in the invitation and i confirmed an hour before the party but still remained outside of the house and couldn't view anything inside it! I put the cursor in the stairs,doors and in all the house but "no actions available" (i thought maby...)! I had to go to my friends tab and call out the owner of the house to talk! what can i do???? plz don't tell me i have to reinstall everything! Sad

Hello,

I'm actually not familiar with your problem, but try updating to the latest version, using THIS Fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-latest-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

If it says you need the EA download manager, just search for it on Google and then try the steps in the Fix again. Maybe it's a bug.

Hello,

Then I recommend you do a complete clean install, as this should fix your problem(s). Also, DO NOT apply any custom content and/or mods, as these will mess up your game.

Here's the correct order for a clean installation (If you've already installed one of the games, just skip that step):

1. Install The Sims 3 base game. (If you've already installed the base game, ignore this step!)
2. Install Outdoor Living Stuff.*
3. Install Late Night.* (Ignore the Installation Guide which says you need to reinstall everything)
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! If not, álways feel free to reply to this e-mail with your problem.

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

Good luck and please let me know if you still have any problems / questions!
