No Towns Listed in Town Select

Post by richardnasty on Mon 20 May 2013, 19:14

I looked through the forums, and couldnt find anybody else with the same problem! Ive installed The Sime 3 with nearly all expansions (all being games4theworld), at least 5 times in the past, never had this kind of problem

Yesterday i installed the full package on my friends computer(with games4theworld fixes and updates), ran flawlessly, made me wanna install it on my computer once again. So i did, ran the exact same steps as always, and when i got to the Town select, where you start a new game, and there were no towns to select! There were 0 towns listed, this has never happend to me in the past, although i did accidentally put the cracks for generations, town life stuff, and pets in the expansions folder, but i realized the problem right after i ran the program, so i exited, applied the cracks in the base game folder, and re-launched. No towns listed, not even ones in the base game! the only thing i did differently was install the cracks for generations, town life stuff, and pets in the expansion folder, as well as the base game folder.

i also tried uninstalling,and reinstalling pets (last expansion installed btw) and recracking it in the base game folder, fixed nothing.

so my question is, did installing the cracks in the expansion folders as well as the base game folders(referring to generations, town life stuff, and pets) **** up the whole installation?

if so, could a fix be as simple as uninstalling and reinstalling generations, town life stuff, AND pets? or must i do so with every single expansion D:

No. You should only need to apply the crack from the Crack folder of the Ultimate Fix, the cracks in the expansions torrents don't work.
If this is what you did, try deleting your cache (DCCache and DCBackup folders in My Documents/Electronic Arts) and then restart your game.

no i installed the cracks from the ultimate fix, i was saying i installed the cracks for generations, town life stuff, and pets into their program files folder, and not into the base game programs files folder, but once i realized i had done this, i applied the crack to the base game in the programs files folder.

could applying the sims 3 pets crack to:program files x86/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 Pets/Game/Bin, AND Program Files x86/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin mess it up? (etc. with generations and town life stuff)

I will also try Deleting Cache to see if it works

//EDIT

Deleting the Cache didn't work. How do I post photos on mobile device, and ill show you what it's doing

Ok.
Anything contained in the Ultimate Fix that isn't in the Crack folder is only meant to be used to update your game. They are original filed, and your game cannot play with them.
Please only copy/paste the files from the Crack folder into the base game, and tell us if this works.
