Sims 3 Installation (I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING!!)

Post by airtraffic on Sun 12 Jun 2011, 10:08

so i have been trying to install the sims 3 plus the expansions for a few days now and keep coming across different issues. i finally read almost every single thread on here and went step by step with the instruction guides, i finally got it to open to the "It looks like you have installed an unofficial game modification that
does not match your current version of The Sims 3. We recommend that
you either uninstall these game modifications or get updated versions of
them – otherwise you may experience crashes or significant bugs."
message, i pressed no like some previous mac users had suggested when it asked if i wanted to quit and instead of the game working like it did for others i got another message saying it was unable to start game and it was a service initialization failure.

i have no idea what to do anymore, so any suggestions would help. i don't want to give up!!

Try reinstalling the games in order. Make sure to update every game to the latest patch then apply the generations crack to your Sims 3\Game\Bin folder. If any problems persist feel free to ask for more help.

To be fair mate, it honestly does not matter on the order you install.. However, saying that, make sure you install generations as there's the latest crack for that and I know that it works Razz

If you keeps getting problems I think I'll have to make a disk image from my sims 3 base game for mac users to download.

I have this problem too. I made my own forum about it, but I'll watch this one too.

Dale is going to be making a copy of his base game so hopefully that will solve some issues!

hey everyone, please check "best clean installation order for mac" thread, where i went through pretty much all the issues you had too, but at the very end, thanks to mcqueen and dale, i was able to install everything properly and have everything running smooth, using Dale's dmg copy... so check that out if you haven't, specially the last thread page.
