Error codes when pressing play on launcher

Post by missmarshmellow108 on Fri 14 Jun 2013, 20:23

Okay so I have a problem. I can boot up my launcher (although some EPs are missing, only goes up to Town Life Stuff), everything seems to be working fine besides the fact theres a white page that says my Sims 3 is unauthorized, but regardless when I press play this happens:

  • Sim Plumbob appears
  • Blue Screen
  • Black Screen
  • Then this:



  • Blue Screen
  • Black Screen
  • ... And then this:



  • Blue Screen
  • Black Screen
  • Sims 3 shuts down

Please help! I have a 10.7.5 Lion with a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5 processor and 4 GB of memory. I installed all expansions (weird that not all show up in launcher) and cracked with the mac version of the Ultimate Fix. I followed the instructions on the fully updated Mac tutorial, so I don't see why this isn't working...
I'm very sorry if I posted this in the wrong place, I'm really new to posting (on any site for that matter) so please correct me if I'm wrong.

Hello,
First of all, you are in the right section Smile

And for your problem, it's about applying cracks wrong..I assume you cracked your every piece of EP you installed not just the file named "UniversityLifeSeasons" and "#Crack" right? Smile

In this case, I am offering you to uninstall (sooorry) and re-install everything. And don't do anything at all after you installed, just come here and infor me, ok? We're going to do this step by step!

Alright, so it took a while to get the basegame installed since I had to redownload the torrent, but when I'm trying to update the game (without expansions yet) it says "unknown error occurred". Should I download manual patch or what? It didn't happen before...
Thanks again Smile

Hello,
Didn't I say don't do anything wtihout telling me? Razz

Okay, just go to the this page and download the MAC version of the manual patch. And patch your game with it. In this point, you can't open your game yet, so calm down Smile

Add the all the expansion packs you want, and do NOTHING after that. Just come and tell me ok?

Hello Maura,

They all installed right? After the manual patch? That's good news. Smile

Now we come to the cracking part: download Mac version of Ultimate Fix. First read the guide in it, it's good to know what is all about, it prevents you doing something wrong.

As the guide says, you need to patch all the games one by one. First you need to do just check which Expansion Packs you have. Then, start with the base game:



Open the "Base Game" folder in the Ultimate Fix rar. and copy all files and go to Applications/ The Sims 3 file and right-click on the Sims 3 icon, and choose "Show Original" .And then select "Show Package Contents" and go to Contents/Resources/transgaming/c_Drive/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin/ and paste those files you copied before, select Replace button when pop-up appears that tells you the files are already exist.

The process is the same with all the other EPs here: World Adventures, High End Loft Stuff, Ambitions, Fast Lane Stuff, Late Night and Outdoor Living Stuff. Just need to copy the files from the file named the "Expansion Pack You Installed&Want to Crack" and go to the Applications\The Sims 3 and right click to the Sims 3 icon, choose choose "Show Original", and "Show Package Content" then go to Contents/Resources/trangaming/c_Drive/Program Files/Electronic Arts/"Expansion Pack You Installed&Want to Crack"/Game/Bin/ and paste the files in it.

Just make sure not to cracking wrong files to wrong locations ok?

Then the second part of the cracking process:


For University Life & 70s, 80s and 90s Stuff & Seasons & Supernatural &Diesel Stuff & Katy Perry’s Sweet Treats & Showtime & Master Suite Stuff & Pets & Town Life Stuff & Generations, you only need to crack ONCE, not one by one. Just go to the file in the Ultimate Fix rar. named "University Life & 70s, 80s and 90s Stuff & Seasons vs" and copy files in it, then go to Applications\The Sims 3 folder again, double click to the icon and choose first  "Show Original" and then "Show Package Content" then go to Contents/Resources/transgaming/c_Drive/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin/  and paste files in this file. Not to expansions' game folder but the in the main game's bin, this is the tricky thing!

For the last cracking, open the "#Crack" folder in the Ultimate Fix rar. and copy all the files in it, then go to Applications/The Sims 3 and double click to Sims 3 icon again, choose "Show Original", and then choose "Show Package Content", go to Contents/Resources/transgaming/c_Drive/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin/ and replce the files.

And voila! You can play the game! Smile Just be careful, read morethan one time to guide and my post before doing anything wrong.

My fingers are crossed for you!

Okay, I have a quick question,
When I crack the expansion packs, do I right click on The Sims 3 icon and press show original? Or the expansion's icon?

You always double click on The Sims 3 icon. For the ones who has its own private cracks you just choose the specific game folder. For example, you want to crack World Adventures, you just go Applications/The Sims 3, double click on the icon and choose "Show Original" and then "Show Package Content" then going to 
Contents/Resources/trangaming/c_Drive/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 World Adventures/Game/Bin/ and paste the files.

But if you are cracking one of those latest expansions like Seasons or Town Life Stuff etc. you need to go to (after doubling clicking the sims icon and choosing "Show Original" then "Show Package Content" of course) Contents/Resources/trangaming/c_Drive/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin/.

Please read the Installation Guide whenever you have a doubt and don't hesitate to ask us Smile

Good luck!

Well turns out it gave me the exact same message when I pressed "Play" on the launcher. I'm so confused... I'm sure I did everything right, I followed all the instructions... What should I do?

I've been trying almost everything but nothing seems to work... 
I decided to get it for PC (since I have a lot of PCs in the house already), and everything is well, but after downloading all expansions up to University I'm having problems. I'll go ahead and post it in the PC forums.
