I suggest you wait for a while, until you really un-install all that. I will think about your problem Wink, but right now, it's getting a bit late (where I am at least).

I will come back to you though later in the day or tomorrow; or maybe another Helper will have a look at this.

Until then, I'm afraid you have to be a bit patient. Wat.

I'll try it out.
If it doesn't work i'll come back.

AND F*CKING YELL. Just kidding. What a Face


//EDIT

I think i found a solution.

You know the sims 3 fix thing you download from here.

Take the exe file from the base game folder and put it in: C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin (something like that. Where you installed sims 3. This is the folder by default)


Helper edit: please do not double-post; use the "edit" button if you want to add something.

I already suggested this (see page 1), but it apparently didn't work...

OK, then. Sorry for the delay Keelii, but I also have some slight troubles in real-life; still I have not forgotten you. Smile


A few things that come to my mind:

-Have you downloaded manual patches in the past ? If yes, did you ever have similar problems ?

-Have you tried downloading that patch with another internet browser ? Did you pause the download at some point ? (basically you should NOT pause downloads).

-It might be possible that your whole game is somehow screwed up, which means we could also try a clean un-install. But I would like to avoid that for now, so please try downloading with another internet browser.

Good luck ! But I'm afraid that I have said - almost - everything about this problem Crying or Very sad.

This is the first time my game wont update through the game client so yes it's my first time with the manual patch

I'll try downloading the patch through a different browser and see if I get a different result, but no when I am downloading I don't pause it.

So I'll give this a try! Smile

//EDIT

It's working!!

I downloaded the patch with chrome but it was still giving me problems so I ran it as an administrator and then it worked!

Thank you so much for all your help!!
