Step by Step Help??

Post by MarshallMadness69 on Sun Jun 30, 2013 5:05 pm

Dear whoever the hell is reading this

I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to this kinda stuff but not too much of a noob, I have grasped the basics

I have the sims 3 on Origin which I have bought and The Sims 3 - Supernatural on Origin which I have bought. I have downloaded individually all of the expansions and stuff packs except for Island Paradise, which I will be doing soon. I have tried many different methods of installing all of this and getting it to work and I just fail in every aspect Noob  So I was wondering If a lovely person could give me a step by step guide on what to do. I have origin copies of the base game and supernatural and have downloaded all of the expansions from Games4theworld.org download page. Please be easy on me :newfag: 

Thanks Guys and Gals and I really hope someone can help me out!!! Badeesh! The Sims Plumbob 1

Hello,

Sure.

(1) Apply the manual patch.

(2) Download and install any expansions you want.

(3) Copy over the contents of #crack folder inside the Ultimate Fix to following: C:\Program Files\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin, not C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

(4) Run the game.

Hello,

Yes, the Ultimate Fix works fine with The Sims 3: Island Paradise.
Correction: The directory should be Origin Games instead of Origin.

Hello,

You have to wait for some moments until the manual update panel pops up.

Hello,

Of course you can use the one from the launcher. But the probability of success is not guranteed.

Hello,

Just ignore the #crack folders in the torrents. Install the games and apply the Ultimate Fix.

Hello,

Yes, there is a way to get official store items. Unfortunately, the G4TW Mediafire account is down. So wait patiently until the Admin puts up the alternative. The Admin is working on it.

Hello,

This is optional because manual patch is always provided.

Hello,

You can of course follow the instructions in the instruction guide of the Ultimate Fix (just change the step of placing the #crack to the correct directory I show you earlier). But of course, you can just replace TS3W.exe and TSLHost.dll in the Origin Games folder with the contents of the #crack in the Ultimate Fix.
