Installed right but still wont play. [SOLVED]

Post by atrain1 on Thu 06 Jun 2013, 18:21

I have the sims 3 base game store bought. I've installed pets and university from games 4 the world torrents. Whenever i start the launcher and play the game A message pops up asking me to put the disc in for the expansions. I tried putting the cracks in but that aparently moved the electronic arts folder from program x86 to the downloads folder. The crack is in the game-bin folder but i still get the same message. Any Ideas?

You need to apply the Ultimate Fix. Do not use the torrents' cracks...

Hello,

Did you use the #crack from the "Ultimate fix" ? If not, it's available here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems.

Just follow the included instructions - and everything should be fine.

I don't know how this happened or what you did, but can you move that Electronic Arts folder (from Program files x86) back to its right place then ?

Please take a screenshot of the spot where the folder should be, and where it is. Also, there is supposed to be a Sims 3 folder in your documents, it's where the game keeps its saves and installed content.

If that folder has been moved, then you have bigger problems than just using the fix. I'd recommend uninstalling it all, restarting your computer, and re-installing.
