Launcher doesn't recognise EP's

Post by katia1993 on Wed 12 Jun 2013, 20:28

Hey everyone,

Today I installed new EP (Seasons and Univeristy life). I also downloaded the patch and installed it. After installing the patch I installed the fix and crack. 
Now I opened the launcher to start the game and I saw that he didn't recognise my (older) EP's! I can see them in the applicationsfolder but not in the launcher. 

How can I fix this? 

This is what I see in the launcher:


This is my applicationsfolder:


Thanks for helping me!

Hello,








It looks like you may have old cracks in place, did you use the entire fix?

Yes, I did the whole fix for all the EP's. But this is the first time I do the fix, so the other EP's got an old crack. 
I normally replaced those cracks with the fix right? Do I need to fix it again?

I'm having the same problem. Have all but Ambitions, Supernatural, Katy Perry, and 70s 80s 90s. Launcher is showing only a few of the EPs being installed and only up to Outdoor Stuff (not even showing 70s 80s 90s, University icons).
I tried starting the game and received an initialization error.
Troubleshooted using the forum search, but no luck so I'm in the process of installing from scratch again (in order) and then applying the crack.

It seems I get problems like this when I install an EP from an earlier date (say Ambitions compared to University) after a newer EP is already installed and cracked.

Would be nice to add to the guides how to add more EPs after already being cracked because I never can.

I'll report back on whether this fixes it or not.

I started the game and all my EP's are working in the game! This is really weird. They don't show up in the launcher, but they work in the game ...

Well, what about opening the guide and delete everything says Night Life and fill the blanks with which EP you want to install then read it through? I'm sure you get it at last? 

We all adding new EP's over a cracked game, like soon Paradise Island will come out, and all I'm going to do is downloading it, installing it, if there's a new update, updating the game, applying the Crack by copying all files in the folder named "Paradise Island&UniversityLife&Seasons" over "Base Game"s bin folder. Then I will copy all files from the file named "#Crack" over the same "Base Game"s bin folder and hit the play button and play.

You see, it's the SAME way, and we have been telling this for a really long time, but still people come and tell we aren't descriptive or our guides aren't clear or etc. etc.

I can't explain it more clear then this, otherwise we all need to come to your place and install it ourselves. If had budget, I'm sure Admin and Lady ElDi would love to, as they help people regardless their attitude.

My problem isn't adding EPs over cracked game. My problem is adding EPs that are older than the ones I already have installed. That is what I believe messed up everything.
Nevertheless it is fixed now that I have reinstalled everything in chronological order.
