Manual patch won't download. [SOLVED]

Post by gittelbug on Tue 02 Jul 2013, 05:16

Hello,
I'm trying to update my game via the ultimate fix. It gave me an error when I followed the steps on the directions, I went to the patch but the patch won't download.
Thanks,

Hello,
 

I think you are making mistakes. Ultimate Fix is not a patch. Follow the instructions on http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly.

Yes, but look at step two of Admin's post



Admin wrote:If you get an update error when trying to install any of the expansions, do step 2 first and then continue with step 1 again.

2. After you've installed all the games you want, RE-DOWNLOAD and RE-APPLY this manual patch: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v133-fix-manual-patch (The Mac version of the manual patch can be downloaded HERE)

That is the patch i'm referring to. I go through all the steps of the ultimate fix but my game still says I have to update. So i updated and it gives me an error message and stops. So I go to the patch linked above but it won't download to my computer. I even left it going all night to see if it'd start up.

Hello,



Please wait until the manual patch pops up. After patching, you can copy over the contents of #crack folder in the Ultimate Fix to C:\Program Files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 \Game\Bin and replace the original.

 But that's the problem the patch itself won't download/pop up. The program won't download to my computer it's been sitting idly waiting to download since last night.

Hello,

This is odd... Is it working now? If not, go to Tools -> Internet Options -> In the General Tab, click delete -> click ok -> Do the same (clear browsing history of all web browsers and try again) for all browsers -> close the web browsers -> reopen one web browser and try again.

Hello,

If you can find it in hidden icons (bottom-right hand corner), you will able to open it by clicking on it.
