Ultimate Fix/ Disk Authentication. [CLOSED]

Post by sims3hope on Tue 14 May 2013, 03:02

My game keeps freezing when I click on Build/Buy mode so I saw that the Ultimate Fix would fix this so I downloaded it and first put the ultimate fix crack [University Life 90's 80's 70's stuff etc etc, then I replaced them two same files with the crack which I thought was pointless cause I replaced the file for no reason. Well, now I keep getting the disc authentication failure.
What do I do? I put the crack/Fix in the Sims 3 folder found in Program Files ( 86x)

For the game to work, you need to place everything from the Crack folder to the base game installation folder, i.e. Program Files > Electronic Arts > The Sims 3 > Game > Bin.
Without this, your game cannot work properly...

I finally got the damn thing to work but now I get that "service initialization failed. Unable to start game"
Also~
Excuse my ignorance but where is the ultimate fix folder and where do I put it?

The ONLY folder you need out of the Ultimate fix anymore is the "#crack" folder. However, your game is (sorta) running, so let that be for now.

What is the exact error message you are getting? The service initialization failed error is common, but there are different types, distinguished by the numbers/letters that follow it.

This is the error I get " Service initialization failed (0x02957b48)"

Did you get the Ultimate Fix?
Unzip it, inside is a Crack folder like invalidusername said. Drag & drop the files inside to your base game installation directory, i.e. C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.
See if the error disappears then...

I had to uninstall my games and expansion packs... I did this before I saw this message.

Oh, sorry. Be sure to restart your computer after uninstall, to be sure to wipe out any chance of registry error...
Then follow the instructions carefully:
  • Install each game/expansion
  • Open the Launcher and check for updates (if there aren't any it's fine)
  • Go on with the next and repeat

When you're done with all, drag & drop the files inside the Crack folder of the Ultimate Fix to your base game installation directory, i.e. C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.
Hope this helps!

Since you have another topic already, how about I close this one?
Is it the same problem?

I guess you could but the problem was never....actually ""Solved"".

I don't need it anymore.

Go ahead.
