Cant even get past the base sims; says cant find the StartDisk. [SOLVED]

Post by Tzalim on Sun 28 Apr 2013, 09:56

Hello,

I tried several times to do it but failed... Ok, I downloaded the base game, The Sims at games4theworld.org and got daemon tools and followed the Installation Guide to the T until I got to number 7 where it says "When, during Installation, the Istallation asks for Disk 1, click 'Browse' and select the StartDisk you have Mounted. (NOTE: In 'My Computer' or 'Computer' the StartDisk is called 'SIMS3')" and it acted like I wasn't doing it right or maybe I wasn't. Ok, when it ask me to insert the Disk 1 (StartDisk) I couldn't find it. And I mounted both iso's, but I couldn't find the StartDisk. I even tried to do it manually, no help. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'm on Windows 7, if that helps. Any help? Anything I should be doing differently? Thanks

Michael

Spoiler:
NOTE: BEFORE STARTING, EXTRACT ALL FILES TO A FOLDER ON YOUR DESKTOP!


1. Mount* or Burn the 'The_Sims_3_StartDisk.ISO'.
2. Do the same with the 'The_Sims_3_Disk_1.ISO'
3. Now start the StartDisk you just Mounted. (NOTE: In 'My Computer' or 'Computer' this .ISO is called 'SIMS3')
4. Start the Installation and folow on screen instructions.
5. When asked for a Registration Code, open the 'Serial.exe' in the '# Crack' file in this .rar and click 'Generate'.
6. Enter the Registration Code shown and start Installing the Game.
7. When, during Installation, the Istallation asks for Disk 1, click 'Browse' and select the StartDisk you have Mounted. (NOTE: In 'My Computer' or 'Computer' the StartDisk is called 'SIMS3')
8. When again asked to insert Disk 1, click 'Browse' and select the Disk 1 you have Mounted.
9. When the Installation is completed, open the '# Crack' file in this .rar and Copy + Paste the 'TS3.exe' to 'Game Directory > Game > Bin' and REPLACE it by the existing one.
10. Start the Game and... ENJOY playing!

Lady ElDi,

lol, you're going to kill me for this... But I didn't know you can do multiple virtual drives, so I paused the video and all went smoothly. Thanks
