Problem with the Fix.

Post by katies on Wed 01 May 2013, 01:37

Hello,
I have The Sims 3 Ultimate Edition version of the game.
I wanted to patch it (1.50) with your Fix, but when I do everything like in the instruction, the Launcher doesn't show the main game installed AT ALL and same for a few others. I downloaded the patch and when I try to patch it, it says 'Can't be patched because there are no games to be patched'.
Could you please tell me where the problem is? I have almost all of the expansions. I've never had a problem with patches before.
Thank you in advance Smile

Hello,

The problem is most likely the "Ultimate Edition" version you downloaded and installed. It sounds like a modified installer. If it is, your PC doesn't recognize all the games as separately installed games.

To confirm this, open Computer and then click on the "Add or remove a program" and then search for "The Sims 3".
Does it find all the games that you think you have installed on your PC?

Hi,
no, it doesn't see separate games, only the Ultimate Edition as a whole. I was thinking that may be the problem. Is there any way to solve this or do I just need a normal version of the game?

Then I suggest you download the "parts" separately: first the base game, and then the necessary expansions for getting the "Ultimate fix" to work (at least one of those:70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff, Seasons, Supernatural, Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry’s Sweet Treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff, Generations).

I recommend downloading on "thepiratebay.org", or if you can't access that for some reason, then "pirateproxy.net"

I'm aware that this will take some time, but I do not see another solution to this.

Good luck!

Hi,
I know piratebay, I just wanted to know if there is any possibility it could work without downloading all of the games again. I didn't really have much choice before and that's why I ended up with this stupid Ultimate version. Smile
Thank you for your help, at least I know what to do now.
Cheers.

Mmmmh I don't think so. Any patch/fix from this website is intended for games with separate expansions.
You should probably download them all again, then it will work!
