SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT INSTALLING SIMS CORRECTLY!!!

Post by ruledarkman on Wed 27 Mar 2013, 02:11

Hello I have been having some problems understanding how to correctly install Sims 3. I read the must read file but have some questions. :newfag:
First of all, got the Sims 3 base game. Just the original game. Can i follow its read me instructions and play it while the expansions are downloading and then do all that how to install correctly stuff.
Second, it says you don't NEED to download the cracks. If i do play just normal Sims 3 for a while I'll need it so can i do it and replace it later. It says you don't NEED it, it doesn't say you can't have it.
What does that mean anyway. Install all expansions without getting cracked. Do you mean just download the torrent and leave it. Or do you mean do all the steps except the one where u switch the file with the cracked file. I already got the Sims 3 cracked file. I haven't gotten the actual game yet. Just gotten the torrent and extracted from winrar to a Sims 3 folder.
If I do not download the cracked and do every step except the replacing, I can't. I need the serial.exe in the cracked which is smack in the middle of the instructions.I know this is alot but again :newfag:
What does it mean by re-download and re-apply patch. By re-download does it mean just download again or do i have to delete the existing one. If so tell me where it is please. Or does it mean download it and download it again. I have no idea what re-apply means.
Again the ultimate fix, re-download, what? Thank you for reading and please help me out.
One more thing, are stuff packs the same as anything else. Or do they have different download info. Currently downloading all expansions and most stuff packs. Haven't read any read mes except the original Sims 3 game one.

All right. Explainy tiem!

You may download all the expansions and stuff packs all you want. When you are done installing the ones you'd like (example late night and ambitions) you install the base game, late night, and ambitions. (doesn't matter what order, just make sure you do the base game first!!) Just, don't run it yet. Download the patch; this will allow it to update it to the latest version (1.50 and no, not 18.xx.xxxx. that's the launcher version) of the game. Then you apply the Ultimate Fix. You navigate to the late night folder of the sims, you navigate to the late night folder of the fix, et repeat, for ambitions. then you go to the '# Crack' folder of the ultimate fix, and plonk that into the BASE GAME, the folder with just The Sims 3. Now I think everything should be working, and do a test run. If not, feel free to reply and ask moar questions. I love helping people. Wink

The 'Re-Download' stuff is for people who already have the game up and running, and if there's a new expansion pack/update, we'll supply a new patch for that/the torrent for that, and in order to make them work properly, you'll have to download the patch/ultimate fix again, hence re-download.

Sorry for the wall of text, but at least I hope this clarifies. Good luck!

You copy the contents of the crack '# Crack' into the base game folder, including the TS3W. You have to have at least one expansion pack installed, because TS3W.exe is created by expansion packs. Just install your expansion packs, then go to the ultimate fix, copy the contents of the cracks in their respectful expansion packs. (Late night in ultimate fix into late night in the game folders, ambitions in the ambition folder of the game) Then, afterwards you installed all your expansions and cracked them, you go to the '# Crack' folder and copy the contents in the base game folder. If it asks to replace everytime, say yes.

Good luck!

Alright thanks so basically I just actually follow the instructions and then get the patch. Then get ultimate fix. Put in corresponding folder in install instructions. Replace at any time. Then put in #crack of ultimate fix and play. Yay thanks for help

You don't go to the disk, you go to the folder you've installed the sims 3 in. I assume in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.
If not, then it's in C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.
Check those out Wink


Edit: And yes, that's how you do it Very Happy

Hi! I'm new here ^^
I've just installed TS3 base game, now I need to clarify Some passages I'm not sure about:

1- After installing The Sims 3 (base game) I crack it copying files from # Crack (of The Sims 3 installing folder I downloaded from this site) to The Sims 3 'bin' folder...right?
2- Then I install all my EP WITHOUT craking them?
3- I run v.1.50 patch and I uptade the game
4- Afer this, I use 'Ultimate Fix' and I copy files from expansions folder (inside ultimate fix) to 'bin' folder of expansions I've installed?
What if my EP are University, Pets, and Generations? There is only one folder on ultimate fix for all of them...in witch one I copy the files? Inside all of their 'bin' folder?
5- At the end I copy file inside # Crack folder of ultimate fix to 'bin' folder of TS3?

I misunderstood something? I swapped a few steps?
I wrote it in a hurry so sorry for spelling (and maybe grammar) errors..
Waiting for your answer before proceeding Smile

Hello,

You only need the crack from the fix, so there's no need to use the crack for the base game after installing it.
Then, yes, install your EP's without using the cracks. You may want to run the patch before you install any EP's so you won't have to deal with updating again during that process. Though you may still want to run the patch again after installing everything.
Then, you don't have to apply the entire fix, just the files from the #crack folder to the base game bin.

Thank you very much for answer!

I just install EP's without making any changes in crack?
So the only crack I need is the one from the #crack folder to copy in the base game bin? That's all?
