Install Renaissance Faire without launcher?

Post by Karenev56 on Sun 09 Jun 2013, 04:04

Since I have only treadmills and none of the objects, etc showing when I install the Faire (and not showing up in build/buy), would it work to try to turn it into a package file and install it in the Library folder? I'm afraid I gorked it uninstalling and re-installing it earlier. Someone told me that doing it through the launcher is what messed it up. Hope this question makes sense, thanks for any replies!

Actually, what happened is, the file is "decrapified", meaning the encryption that EA placed on it was taken out so that you could install it. In order to get those items back, you have to have the store fixes. As far as I've heard, they haven't been updated for this set yet, at least not fully.

Got the store fixes from KT at MATY, which are supposed to up to date. Even if I uninstall it and take it out of downloads, when I redownload it & install, the launcher says already installed. The Faire is there but no items, just treadmills and the other things with the faire (archery, violin, hobbyhorse, grill, etc) are not shown and not available in buy/build.

Thanks, Admin, but does this mean all my content (it says reinstall all sims3packs) would have to be reinstalled?

Hello,

I'm not completely sure, but yes, I think it'll remove everything.

Hello,

Ah... would it be a problem to reinstall all of them? (Just put them in "Downloads" folder, start Launcher and choose "Select all" and "Install" - then just get yourself a good cup of tea or something)

Probably not (problem to reinstall, that is). Am anxious to get the Faire to work. Maybe wine instead of tea! Thanks for your response and help.
