It goes black as it used to do while starting the game but then it goes back to the desktop. I get this window that pops up and says "Unable to start game Service Initialization Failed (0x039e8474)"

//EDIT


And also in the SimLauncher it says I dont have Generations. When I mouse over the icon for the original Sims 3, it has a bunch of zeros under it.

Hi there Halogirly. First of all, did you make sure you placed the crack in The Sims 3/Game/Bin folder and not Generations/Game/Bin folder? If so, did you download the latest fix and replace the cracks you have applied to any other game?

The way the crack works with the release of generations is quite different than before. Before you had to apply a crack to every release. Now you only have to apply the crack to The Sims 3. The Generations crack really isn't a Generations crack, but a base game crack which affects all of the games installed. But it will only work if you have Generations installed, thus the reason installing Generations has become quite necessary for an easy install.

All this time Ive been trying to get the Late Night Expansion to work. I was told to download Outdoor Living and Generations... I followed the instructions that were given to me in the old fix, so I then added Generations and then followed the instructions of the new fix. The new fix had me replace files in my other expansions as well, so that might be conflicting... But it told me to, so Im pretty confused at this point....

Ok, if you wish to install Generations as well here is how I would do it.

I. Install "The Sims 3"
II. Update "The Sims 3" to version 1.22.9
III. Install "The Sims 3: Night Life"
IV. Update "The Sims 3: Night Life" to version 6.5.1
V. Install "The Sims 3: Generations"
VI. Apply The Generations Crack

*Note* The Generations crack goes into The Sims 3/Game/Bin folder, not The Sims 3: Generations/Game/Bin folder.

If you still have any problems I will continue to assist you and find a solution for you.

So should I uninstall everything? My Sims base game is a retail copy.

I have these installed on my laptop:
-Sims 3 (store bought)
-Sims Late Night (downloaded)
-Sims Outdoor Living (downloaded)
-Sims Generations (downloaded)

Thats the exact order of downloads too.

try uninstalling and reinstalling using the directions I provided. If that does not work then try downloading the Games4TheWorld Sims 3 from Pirate Bay. It seems the retail versions might not work. Can't verify that statement though.

No. Only apply the crack for Generations when you are done installing and updating everything. Apply the crack to C:/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin.

The proper Generations crack can be found here:

Yes, install Late Night then Update it. If you want Oudoors Living Stuff, then install it after Late Night and update it. If you want Generations then Install that and apply the crack provided with Generations to your base game's Game/Bin folder.

Hey, the black screen is a good sign. You need to alt tab out and press the continue button on the popup. Its a common thing as unfortunate to say, and there is no way to prevent it right now.
