Island Paradise Won't Start

Post by Chicago on Thu 27 Jun 2013, 03:29

Hello, 

So I wiped my Windows 7 system clean of all of my Sims 3 stuff. Then I re-downloaded The Sims 3 base game from Origin. Then I updated my game to 1.55 using the patch. From there I installed Island Paradise. After that, I re-installed the patch, then I put the Ultimate Fix files into my "games/bin" area.

Then I ran the Sims 3 launcher. I hit the play button. Upon hitting the play button, the launcher disappears & that's it.. Nothing happens.

What do I do?

Hello there,

I don't have this "Origin" thing, but I think the two files from the #crack folder in the fix (TS3W.exe + TSLHost.dll) go into a folder called Origin games/The Sims 3/Game/Bin.

That's exactly where I put it, lol. 

I previously had, Ambitions, Generations, Showtime, Late Night, Pets, Seasons & University Life & they have all worked fine. 

This one is giving me fits though

Stay calm.

What happens if you double-click on the TS3W.exe ?

The only left that I know about this, is that you (from time to time) also need to update this "EA Download Manager".

If that doesn't help, I suggest you wait for another Helper to jump in; maybe the others are more familiar with "Origin".
