Re: DO NOT update The Sims 3 to any new version higher than version 1.50 (yet)!

Post by celinelol13 on Thu 20 Jun 2013, 03:36

To My previous question, I found out that I could Play or run the game without waiting for the patch! I have some of the disks and also the newest one Sims 3 University so I figured I could do the update without the patch that helps people play without a disk. Anyways The update installed successfully and I have now ran the game the Fifth time today with the new installed update and found no problem. I do have most of the expansions through here but didn't know if that would effect it or not. 
 
 Anyone curious like me, who has the newest or recent game disk and had some of the games through here I believe you should not see any trouble installing the update without waiting for the patch. I don't know how you have your things set up though just keep in mind! Thanks-

Hello! 
So like many, before seeing this thread, I got all excited about the new patch and downloaded it...of course then experiencing the same problems. What I did to get my previous game back (I have the base retail and all the expansions I have are from G4TW), I restored my computer to a checkpoint before I installed the patch, then I used the Ultimate Fix with the manual patch for V1.50, following the instructions, even though it said I already was at that version, I re-installed it anyway. Now my game is back to working order. 
I'm now going to wait for the update to come from you guys Smile Hopefully this works for others who are desperate to get their Sim on. Razz 
Thanks for being awesome!

To all those who are patience without to wait for the new version of the Ultimate fix, is indeed recommended. I'm pretty sure the fix will be out soon, as some them who have stated.

NoCD and crack are the same thing.
Not 100% true, as the nocd is a mod, and the crack replaces game files, and as such, is more of a permanent solution (in my opinion)

I fully understand about the timing and in no way do i mean to be rude, i just generally would like and estimated time Smile
It should be done within the next few days. If you haven't updated yet, you should still be fine to play though. Smile

How did you become Helper again?
I became a helper by being polite and knowing how to help people with their problems in regards to the sims. As I said in the above post, the crack being a more permanent solution is my own opinion, and I don't expect everybody to agree with me. You have quite a few opinions of your own, and I don't make rude comments about them, now do I? If you'd like to discuss a problem with me, you can be polite and we can keep it in the topic, or we can take this to a pm, and deal with it that way. 

And if it was the other part of the comment that I posted, why are you trying to dispute that? It's a fact. And although we may know this, and may have known for a while, not everybody always realizes these things.

Oh, and thank you Shamrock. Smile

Bit of a contradiction there.

It will screw up your game unless you have a crack for 1.55. Any crack as long as it's for 1.55, although I wouldn't trust those Bulgarian sites.

I'd wait for the Ultimate Fix though.

Hello,

If your game and expansions were legit, then you should have no problem updating.  If though, you got your cracks from here then you should've waited for the ultimate fix to be compatible with the new update.  This is why Admin advised that we not update to 1.55 yet

Admin wrote:Hello everyone,

As already warned about in THIS topic, I'd still like to remind you again NOT to UPDATE to any new game version of The Sims 3. (Stick to 1.50 for now) Until, of course, we have updated our Ultimate Fix to support the latest version of the game.
When the Fix has been updated and is fully compatible with the latest game version again, we'll let you know immediately, as usual.

If you're not sure, note the *WORKING* and *NOT WORKING* on this page: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

Stay tuned! (... and DO NOT post and problems or questions in this topic, but open a new topic in the correct section instead)

Wish I read this before I updated my game.  Everything worked after I finally installed the University pack, then I ran the manual install for 1.55.  I don't know how to backtrack and I doubt reinstalling the 1.50 patch will be safe (I keep everything).  Well... keep us alerted because I'm going to wait to play Sims until this fix is updated for it

For those who accidentally patched early and are now getting the "No CD" error (and are as impatient as I am!), you can download the University Life (or whatever EP you are up to)'s .iso file and mount it using DaemonTools to play. I don't know if everyone is getting this error if they patched early but I hope it helps.

I bought my base game but all EPs I downloaded from G4TW.
