Sims 3 Error During Start-Up After Installing Torrented Stuff Pack. [SOLVED]

Post by mayahalo on Sun 05 May 2013, 12:31

I have a legit copy of The Sims 3 and all expansion packs I have are legit, apart from University Life which was torrented. I installed UL and my game worked perfectly, then I tried to install Fast Lane Stuff (torrent) and I get this 'Error during startup, please see log for more details.'

I have absolutely no idea what to do and couldn't find a thread like this. This is pretty much my first time torrenting so I was very pleased when UL worked.
The game won't start directly either (not via the launcher).
Any ideas would be appreciated, but I'd rather not have to try uninstalling everything.

Thanks!

Hello,

When you try to start the game from TS3W.exe in the base game\bin, do you get an error? Did you by any chance use the crack that came with your Fast Lane Stuff torrent? If you did, you may be able to solve this by applying the fix.

Whenever I click on the TS3.exe application, my cursor loads for a second and then nothing happens Sad

That's not technically an error Wink But it's still helpful to know.

Can you open the launcher and have the launcher work fine, just not run the game?

Ok wait, rereading everything, I got a question: what happened to the "Error during startup" message? Do you still get it? Is this fixed?
And what about the Launcher, like invalidusername said?

Yep still getting that stupid 'error during startup' messafe. And the launcher won't work at all! Only pops up to show me that message, I click ok and it closes the launcher.

Hello,

You already linked to that video in your first reply.
But watch it carefully, if you didn't already.

If that didn't work either, please let us know where exactly you got all your games from.
