Launcher opens but game won't start

Post by edajbee on Mon 17 Jun 2013, 19:50

Hi there,

So I've installed everything correctly and applied the ultimate fix and manual patch, however my game won't start past the launcher. I've applied the 4GB patch as well as the other suggestions but I can't seem to figure out what's going wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Please post a screenshot of where you're trying to copy the files from the Crack folder of the Ultimate Fix.

Ok, sorry, sometimes people do it wrong...
Try to double click the TS3W.exe file in there. Does the game start?

Ok. What is your game version then?
Open the Launcher, then hover over the base game icon.

Ok. Now make sure your graphic card drivers are up to date.
Can we get details about the graphic card you have?

The graphic card I have on my laptop is called Intel(R) HD Graphics. I don't really know where to find more information on the graphic card. I updated my graphic card drivers and I'm still encountering the same problem. However, I just noticed that when I open the launcher it says that I don't have the expansions packs I torrented (Seasons and Supernatural) installed, but when I click the setup to install them it shows that they are in fact installed...

That means you didn't apply the Ultimate Fix correctly. Please copy the files from the Crack folder and paste them in the directory you showed.

With the icons not showing as lit up, it means you should re-apply the manual patch, even though you're already on the correct patch level. So apply the patch, then re-do the fix, and your game should work. Smile
