Sims 3 fix won't update - launcher or manual

Post by harrylewish on Sun 23 Jun 2013, 18:24

I have been using the previous version of the fix since 1.50 I believe, and I saw there was a new update some I came to get the new one and update, however, I followed all the instructions in the readme and attempted to update through the launcher, "invalid file". Tried the manual way, "invalid file" again.

The issue may be because I have most expansions installed, but they do not show up in the launcher.
I cannot post a screenshot of this as forum rules won't allow me.

Thanks for any help.

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!

Done this trying to update using the launcher 3 times, and trying to do it manually updating 3 times.
Still does not update my game and both ways give me "invalid file"

Try to download the Patch with Chrome, and extract with WinRAR.

The link you sent is the same as the version I already downloaded. 
I have tried the new download link, and ran it, still does not help my update.

Starting to think it might be easier just uninstalling and starting installing all my games from scratch...
Help

What you linked me is the manual patch, yes?
I have used this and it does not work.

Nope. What I've linked you is the incremental patch, from 1.50 to 1.55. The Manual Patch is the super patcher, from anything to 1.55...
Sorry then, I'm out of options...
