Problem With Sims 3 Seasons

Post by sarah.sim9213 on Fri 12 Apr 2013, 23:28

I'm not very tech savy but I love the Sims and I love this site for possibly enabling me to play the way-too-expensive game, but to the point, I need help. I just downloaded the Sims 3 Seasons and followed all the instructions really carefully. It installed fine but whenever I try and play it a message pops up saying "looks like you have installed the unoffical game modification that does not match your current game" and it says if I don't uninstall it the game will face serious bugs or crash. If I hit continue, the game freezes on the loading screen. HELP PLZ....

Did you re-apply the fix after installing seasons? It sounds like you put the crack in that came with seasons, which is outdated now.

What is your base game version? It can be found by hovering over the base game icon on your launcher.

I think it's Showtime
At least that's the disc it always tells me to insert

Tried it, same problem. It tells me to insert the Showtime disc which I have, so I do, and then nothing happens. It looks like it's gonna load, like the launcher goes away, but then nada.

Try backing up and removing "Documents/Electronic Arts/Sims 3" Just to make sure there's nothing in there that could be causing this crash/non-load.

Thank you so much, that worked, now I can play. The only problem is now build/buy mode won't work. The catalogue won't show up no matter how long I wait, and I waited a while. Is there a fix for that? I really just wanna play the game....lol
