Ultimate fix won't install?

Post by lauraxo on Sun 23 Jun 2013, 14:01

I tried to download the new Ultimate fix patch to Update my game to 1.55 and it went through all of the download of it and when it got to the end it said 'Unknown file error' and it didn't complete updating my game scratch Can someone help? Really want to update my game

I dragged the .exe and .dll files from Ultimate fix to Programfiles(x86)/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin so it should work?:newfag:

Ok, what is the version of your game? (hover over the base game icon at the bottom of the Launcher).

Ok. Here's what to do.
¤ Get the latest Ultimate Fix, and copy the files from the Base Game folder to C:\Program Files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin
¤ Open your Launcher, and go to the Update tab. Refresh, and update your game. If the update fails, get the latest Manual Patch and double-click on the .exe file.
¤ Once it's done, copy the files from the Crack folder of the Ultimate Fix to C:\Program Files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.
Your game should now be up-to-date and working!

When you open the Launcher, do all your expansions appear at the bottom, or are some grayed out?

Ok then. Simplest way is: do you know how to use mods?

open the ultimate fix,take the crack from the folder wich say university,70,80,90 ectra

copy them in to your folder of university life (where you have installed it) and put them in game/bin folder then you take the crack folder and ptu the crack one more time over the game/bin from the base game

Ok cool.
First of all, download this. Extract it and paste the Mods folder in Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3.
Then, inside that folder notice the Packages folder. Inside it are two mods for now: one removes the introduction, the other removes the shining dazzling animation when building things. If you want to keep any of those, feel free to delete the file!
Then download the NoCD Mod (you can also find it on NRaas website, which is where I take the link from). Put the .package file where the others are.
Does that solve your problem?

K, but I don't think it makes sense...Rolling Eyes

//EDIT

I still haven't sorted out this situation! I haven't been able to play Sims so can someone help me since it was the instructions that this site gave to make this problem happen:scratch:

//EDIT

Can someone please help! I am very annoyed!


Helper edit: Hello Laura. Please, at first I would like to ask you not to double-post. Wink  Use the "edit" button on your post if you want to add something. Beyond that, I will have a look at your problem, but maybe not today anymore. As you can see, things in the forum are getting quite "loaded", because we have so many new users here. Please, try to be a bit patient; again, I will have a look at your topic. Smile

Hello Laura,

So after reading through the topic, I'm still not sure about all the steps you tried already.

Have you already downloaded the latest "manual patch" ? It's availalabe here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v155-fix-manual-patch-updated. After downloading that file (the size of it is about 1.3 GB), just double-click on it and it will update your game to the latest version. But if you downloaded the latest expansion "Island Paradise", the manual patch is already included in there: open the .RAR file of Island Paradise, then go to Support/Updates and there you drag + drop the .exe file to the desktop - or wherever you like. Smile

After you applied the patch, download the Ultimate fix again, you'll find it here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

However, it's enough when you use the two files from the #crack folder in the fix; you copy these two files (TS3W.exe + TSLHost.dll) to C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Of course, replace the existing files.

If you have troubles with the "manual patch", try re-downloading it with another internet browser. Or if you downloaded "Island Paradise" and want to use the manual patch from there - and you have problems, try extracting the .exe file AGAIN.
