Hello I am having the same insert disc problem. I'm getting rather frustrated as I've been **** with these downloads for almost 3 days now trying to get them to work, The only time it worked for me I managed to have everything up to Generations working and I used somebody elses base game torrent + High end loft stuff + World adventures + key, but once I installed Showtime it stopped working and I had to completely uninstall everything, not only that but reDOWNLOAD everything (Which took over 24 hours) cause my hard drive is only 75 GB so I have to delete the .rars as I install the games. I started making system restore points though, hopefully they will come in handy.


So far I have everything installed in this order
The Sims 3, World Adventures, High End Loft Stuff, and Ambitions, I tried them one by one after each install, I followed the instructions in each guide perfectly and placed the crack files in the right places but so far every time I get "Please insert " " game disc" after the main title screen gets done loading and I get to the neighborhood selection screen. I read above I need at least one of a certain expansion, so Imma install Late Night then generations and see if it works after that. My current version of TS3 is 1.50.56.021002 but the launcher is asking me to update to TS3EP02_4.10.1.011031_Update.exe
I also plan on installing Supernatural, Seasons, Diesel Stuff, and 70s 80s & 90s stuff. Also as far as I know, your Ultimate Fix link is dead, it just brings me to an error page.

Ohhhh its my web browser, downloading the ultimate Fix now, from where I am currently what should I do, i have yet to install Late Night and generations and am at V1.50.56.021002. From what I've been reading, I should install Late Night, and Generations is required (or one of the others) then I should install the rest, NOT update any more? Or worry about the crack folders in the expansions, and just apply the Ultimate Fix cracks after they're all installed
EDIT: I installed Late Night and Generations and now the game just wont even **** launch ....... :I
EDIT 2: Please give me proper instructions on installing The Sims 3, World Adventures, High End Loft Stuff, Ambitions, Late Night, Generations, Showtime, Diesel Stuff, Supernatural, Seasons, and 70s 80s & 90s stuff + the Ultimate Fix These are the only expansions + stuff packs I want and I only have enough hard drive space for these. I'm running Windows Vista Buisness 32-bit and The Sims 3 installs to System:C/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 I'm close to just giving up, its not fair other people are having no trouble getting it to work but once I get to Late Night the game just wont even launch, at one point I did have all these up to Generations installed and working

Hi,
Ok, here's what you should do:
If you have everything installed already, don't uninstall anything. Just download the manual patch and apply it.
Then download the Ultimate Fix, and drag & drop files from the Crack folder to C/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3\Game\Bin.
Good luck and tell us the result!

Okay so I accidentally deleted an entire registry branch and **** up my entire computer while deleting the sims 3 registry keys for a clean install, had to do a clean reinstall of vista 32-bit, but my friend gave me his qaud core (it doesnt work) but I got 4 sticks of 2 gb ddr2 RAM out of it and a 750 GB hard drive (my OS runs off of one hard drive and my programs run off the other) I made a usb installer and upgraded to windows 7, I'm now in the process of re-downloading all the expansions and stuff packs except for Pets, Fast Lane Stuff, Master Suite Stuff, and Katy Perry's Sweet Treats, as none of those interest me.

If you could post proper instructions on how to install everything right the first time I'd GREATLY appreciate it! Thank you! ^^

Sure, here goes:
¤ Install the base game.
¤ Open the Launcher, and check for updates (if there aren't any it's fine, otherwise let the game update!)
¤ Repeat the process with the next expansion.
¤ When you're done with them all, check that your game is version 1.50
¤ Then, get the latest Ultimate Fix, and get files from the Crack folder only. Copy & paste them to C:\PROGRAM FILES(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.
That should be fine!
Good luck, and give us the result!

Hello,

First, have a look at this here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t177-can-t-find-the-sims-3-sku-fix

As soon as you get to this SKU, you should see (on the right) a registry entry named "SKU" - double-click on it and change the value:


  • 01 = US
  • 02 = World Wide (incl. Australia & New Zealand)
  • 03 = Asia
  • 05 = Japan
  • 17 = Digital Download
So these are the so-called "region codes". You probably have to change the digit to "2", but you may have to try several digits.

Yeah... how do I fix all the bugs? I made my sim, but the sim in the picture looks nothing like me, my face in the picture frame looks nothing like me, its almost as if I can't use any expansion content or something.

Wow yeah, in game all of his clothing looks like a shadow and he's got short hair (My sim had long jack White-like hair) He has the right hair when I zoom out but when I zoom in it glitches to some retarded looking sim that looks nothing like the sim I created :I

Ok, let's try and clear the cache. Go to My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3, and delete the following:
¤ CASPartCache.package
¤ compositorCache.package
¤ scriptCache.package
¤ simCompositorCache.package
¤ socialCache.package
Then, also delete the folders DCCache, DCBackup, WorldCaches, and Thumbnails. (You might loose Custom Content in the process, as long as saved games, so you'll have to install them again!)
Does this help?

There is only ONE such filepath for the "cache files", and again, in Windows 7 and Vista that is: C:\Users\(your username)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 (= basically the same what Admin said above already).

And in Windows XP it is this: C:\Documents and Settings\(your username)\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3.

Oh I was looking in program files not my documents :I derp... I think I figured out WHAT might be wrong without having to delete any files, I have 2 hard drives, a 75 GB and a 750 GB, The Sims 3 is installed on my 750 GB and my OS runs off of my 75 GB drive, but The Sims 3 folder was in My Documents on my OS drive and not the drive The Sims 3 is installed on.

Edit: nevermind, moved the folder to the proper hard drive didn;t help, people still look like shadows in family portaits, gonna try and delete all the named files, gonna back them up.

EDIT 2: Nope it didn't fix it, there's still a bald black shadow for their sim pic and they're bald shadow people in the family portraits still. Already pre-existing families look fine though :I (EDIT: Nevermind, when I play pre-existing families they also look like black shadows in game but unlike my newly made sims the shadow actually looks like their hair and body instead of a bald generic sim. Instead of black shadows for their icon pics, they;re grren and empty :I)

I really doubt it's my specs though, a pop up does come up saying my vdeo card isn;t supported but that poppedu p last time i had TS3 installed on Vista Buisness 32 bit, I had everything up to generations installed and it was working just fine and the base game and few of the expansions weren't even Games4TheWorld torrents.

The game runs just fine now too except for the fact that face pics and family portraits are looking like shadows, or the face pic loads and its just a bald head that doesn't look anything like that sim.
