Hey!
So, the fix has two uses (btw, please use the latest version of the Ultimate Fix):
  • The Crack folder contains the files needed to play. You need to drag & drop these files to the base game installation folder, aka C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. With these, your game cannot be updated.
  • The other folders contain the original files. You must drag & drop them in their respective folders in order to update the game. But with these, your game is not playable.

I hope this will help you!

Yep, i used the latest update and fix u guys provided and my problem was the error in updating. Fortunately, i found a video by G4TW to fix this and it is done now. Still , thanks for your help Very Happy gladly appreciate it.

Also, i was wondering that let say i have the sims 3 and the sims 3 university life now. Is it the sims 3 university life already provide all the features in others the sims 3 expansion pack e.g pets, seasons , supernatural etc. Which means i do not need to download and install the other expansion pack anymore ?

Hello,

No, if you want features of the other expansions, then you have to download and install all the other expansion packs (you want) too
Wink. Keep in mind that for the "Ultimate fix" to work you need at least one of the following expansions installed: 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff, Seasons, Supernatural, Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry’s Sweet Treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff, Generations.

Yes, there are so-called "collections" of Sims 3 games, which contain several expansions ("Black Box", etc.).

HOWEVER, I do not recommend using such a "collection". I strongly suggest you download all the expansions separately (I know this sounds "old-fashioned"

What he said. strongly agree. Expansions are not that hard to install, you just need to launch an .exe file. No mounting anymore like for the base game.
Just use the Ultimate Fix to put back the games you have to their original state (using every folder except the Crack one).
Then install expansions one by one, and check for updates after each one. Or install them all and do the manual patch at the end.
Once it's done, just drag & drop the files from the Crack folder.
Then you're done!
