Sims 3 Generations

Post by bev0191 on Sun 05 Jun 2011, 11:07

Hi, Ive completely uninstalled sims 3 and have spent the night downloading all of the expansions and packs available. Before I do a complete reinstall I just want to clarify I have it right. I install the base game, followed by Generations then all the other ones in order. I update via the launcher then only use the Generations crack which goes in the base game folder. is that correct?
Thank you!

Make sure you have removed all the left over folders from the Sims 3 in both Program Files and My Documents.

For the correct and updated version of how to install all packs, go to the following link:

Make sure you read it very carefully.

ok, Ive installed all the games/packs/expansions starting with the base game, followed by generations then the rest in order. Opened the launcher, did the update and copied the crack from the generations folder from the ultimate fix in to my base game bin folder. Opened the launcher and get a no disk erroe! Any ideas?

If you don't have the CD, then you can just crack it. No need to uninstall.

It looks like even on EA, many other players who bought the Download version of the game are having the same issues:

Hello,

Please read step 4 of this guide carefully on where EXCATLY to put the crack: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly-must-read

No need to uninstall, no need to crack. There's no need to crack the base game anyway, only Generations. (However the crack for Generations must be placed in the base game's game directory, as described here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly-must-read )
