Your Island Paradise torrent doesn't work on MAC :(

Post by Truthsims on Sun 23 Jun 2013, 21:36

I'm downloading Island Paradise from your website, but i saw, it's the .rar file.. and on MAC OSX works only the original .iso file.. Mac only allow installation the .iso file.
Will be some next download file for Mac? WhatDidUJustCallMe?

Sorry for my english.. Sad

Hun, all you will need to do is extract the .rar file into a folder. Then just click the setup.exe file and it will install just as it would on CD. You may not even have to extract it into a new folder and just click the setup program, but sometimes it may be picky about using it that way. It is made into a .rar (zip) this way so people will not have to use a program to open it.

I hope this helps.

Hello,

First of all, calm down. Second of all it isn't the Censored of Mac. You just need to read our Mac guide before blaming everything else Wink
Just read carefully, and more than one, and read all about creating a .dmg(disk file) so the installer should work.

Good luck!

Hello,

You actually READ the guide that I sent the link? Because in that guide it explains the way of turning a file into a disk image.. I am sorry but if you don't read anything I can't help you.

Let's do it then with my instructions:

First go to your Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility. Hover over the Disk Utility prefences above the screen on upper dock and choose File/New/Disk Image from Folder. 
A window will pop up and ask you to choose a file. Choose the file of Island Paradise you downloaded (the whole file, not installer etc.)
Then choose the place where you want to save the .dmg file (desktop is a good choice), name it and wait until the process is over. 

When it's over, just double click on the .dmg file you just created and saved on desktop and it'll open a window which contains Island Paradise's installtion app, and a crack folder. Just click the application, installation will start.

Take the .RAR file and make a .dmg 

NOT THE SETUP/INSTALLER ICON

Are you being sure to use Stuffit Expander and not any other unarchiver? The Mac Guide specifically says use Stuffit Expander. It's available on the Mac App Store or if you don't mind a larger download from Stuffit's website.
And yes, it's free.

I downloaded Island Paradise on my Mac and it works perfectly... I updated my game first, applied the ultimate fix and the manual patch. Installed Island Paradise, applied the ultimate fix and the manual patch again. And that's it... :/

Is your base game updated to 1.55? Additionally your .dmg only seems to have two icons where mine has several, this is how my .dmg looks (it is the one on the right!) I just click on "The Sims 3 Island Paradise Installer.app" and when prompt for the code, I enter the one in the "Installation Guide".

see the 1.55 update won't work on my computer and i've downloaded the ultimate fix and the manual patch but neither will open, when i try to expand the folder it says it is corrupt or that i don't have permission and should try on a windows computer. also, my original sims 3 is off the disc, will that change anything? island paradise is the first game i have downloaded

 You must use Stuffit's Expander to unzip the file, other programs will not fully unzip. Additionally you can update to 1.55 using the manual patch here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t3597-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v155-fix-manual-patch-updated

you can get stuffit at: http://www.stuffit.com/mac-expander.html

Then click on the grey download button under "Stuffit Expander Continue without free download".

After that you only need to enter a e-mail address, I always use a fake one such as: g@y.net and click the green download button and the green download button again.

Unless you have an odder mac that is not OSX 10.6.8 and up OS 10.8.x Compatible, if so you select one of the other options and click the green download button.
