Service Initialation Error (Solved)Good advice here!

I used the suggested stuffit expander (2009) and expanded the programs. I created disk images of each one, except for the base game which I made the iso requested. I applied the fixes. I applied the crack. All to the proper folders. But when I boot the game first I get this:


Then I get this when trying to continue:

Hello,
I have the same exact problem (Mac as well). I followed the instructions here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly-must-read With Sims 3 first, generations second, then every other game in order.
Applied the fixes correctly according to the instruction PDF and now I have the same pop-up.

Do I have to reinstall everything again? I have LittleSnitch, disabled while attempting to launch the game.

Oh, I'll tell you what happened. After that, I installed the new base game that Dale uploaded for us on this one.

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1142-update-read-before-posting-anything-related-to-the-sims-3

Then you reinstall everything.

After that I still got the pop up saying it was a unofficial game modification, but when I said "no" it popped up working perfectly fine! So its all good.

To download the sims 3 base game from dale's website I had to have a download manager installed or it tried to stop at around 1gb instead of the full amount. I used the firefox add on "DownThemAll!" and it worked and it was pretty speedy too compared without them

Do I have to stop it at 1GB or can I download the whole dmg?

Download the whole thing. Its just mine stopped automatically, it was a safety net built into the browser to keep too big of files from crashing it. A download manager fixes that. Sorry for not being clear. You need to download the whole thing but without a download manager it might automatically try to stop. It did that on two separate browsers for me.
