it was a huge upgrade from her old computer:
OLD
1GEN AMD Athelon dual core black edition
3G DDR2
500g ATA cable HDD
radeon 5770

NEW
i3 3.6ghz
8G ddr3 1600mhz
500G 7200rpm SATA HDD
SATA CD rom
Radeon 5830

i already noticed a huge improvement :p
plus i got the i3 for 75 bucks. only had to buy the mobo, processor, ram and cd rom...for a total of 128 cant complain. Razz

i used to be a hardcore amd guy but there recent cpus are falling well below standards...i might go back to amd in the future but they need to revise there FX CPU's.

ANY WAYS

so i just finished downloading the expansion. Sims 3 is retail install. Do i just normally install the expansion like a normal game and drag n drop the contents of the #crack folder in the main sims 3 folder and run sims 3 via the new TS3W.exe?


Or is there more to it?

What if you downloaded the retail game through Origin? Will the torrented expansions work?

The expansions will work if any are installed through origin. If your base game is through origin, you just have to place the crack in "C:/Program Files(86)/Origin Games/Sims 3/Game/Bin"
