Island Paradise "please insert disc" error..

Post by himei_kyomei on Wed 26 Jun 2013, 02:09

Hello-
I just installed Island Paradise, and when I went to play the game I was prompted to insert the disc for it.
I've downloaded many expansion/stuff packs from G4TW before, but this is the first time this has happened.
 Does anyone happen to know how I could fix this? ._.

Hello there,

Try re-appying the "manual patch". Then re-apply the "Ultimate fix" (the two files in the #crack sub-folder are enough).

If you have this "No-CD mod", then take it out again from your "Mods" folder. And you might even post a screenshot of where you are trying to put the two files from the #crack.

Do you know how to post screenshots ?

To make a screenshot, press Prt Scr which is ( USUALLY ) next to F12 , on top of Insert , and next to Scroll Lock. Then you open, for example, a program like "Microsoft Paint" and select the option "Paste". Now you should see your screenshot - then you save your picture.

To upload a picture here, click on "Host image", then select your screenshot. After that you should get the URL (the "internet link") for that picture. Now you go to "Insert image" (the symbol on the right next to "Host image") and paste the URL.

Now I would like to see the following screenshot (in "Host an image", please select "Resolution 1024x"):

1) go to C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and make a screenshot.


One small thing perhaps: put the filepath I just showed you (the path where the two files from the #crack belong to) into the "exceptions" of your anti-virus software.

OK, so far these are my thughts. Good luck!

Maybe an Origin folder if you installed through Origin?
That is fishy though, it should be there since you installed games from here...
Did you change the install location?

No, there isn't an Origin folder, or anything of the sort.
I never changed the install location, either.. but all of my game files are in My Documents. Is that where the "typical install" puts them? Wat.

himei_kyomei,

Try looking in this path: Computer >> OS[C:] >> ProgramFiles[x86] >> ElectronicArts
Wink

If that doesn't work, have you partitioned your PC?

i am having the same problem! can somebody please help me? i am so anxious to play this EP!!!

i'm sure i probably am/have been doing something wrong. my games have always worked and have never prompted the "insert disk" message until i installed this one.

since i am a new member i cannot post external links, so if somebody could kindly PM me (because i am not sure of who to PM for this), i will send the link to a picture of what my folder looks like!

I've been having the same issue with mine. I tried re-applying the manual patch and ultimate fix. :/

I'll post a screenshot if that helps.

Oookay.
I applied the fix, and now the launcher isn't showing that I have Island Paradise installed (the little icon on the bottom is grayed out) and it's asking me to insert the Showtime disc. Facepalm

EDIT: Well, this is odd.

I closed out of the launcher and reopened it, and the Island Paradise icon was filled in again. I got a message saying I could update my Store content, which I did, and then everything was fine. The game starts without any problems. .____.

I really don't understand how that happened, but I'm glad it did.. xD

Hopefully I don't run into any more problems now. (I probably will, just because I said that.Rolling Eyes)
