Cant find right folder for cracks?!

Post by cxoxo on Tue 02 Jul 2013, 06:25

Okay so im sure this has been asked a millon times, and Im sorry! 
I just downloaded/installed Island PAradise and am now trying to move cracks to the C:\programfile etc folder. I can not find it. However, If I go into my computer, click on the sims 3 it opens up the folders. I clicked on caches and there is a folder named bin. Is that the same thing?! I bought my Sims 3 base game at Walmart, so I have the actual copy of it. And also have bought several of the EPS(if that helps) sooo if that's not the folder, please help me find it because Im so lost =( Help

Hello,



If your copies are retail/Origin, the correct path of your base game folder should be C:\Program Files\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

 ohhh.. hmmm? I brought up run, and pasted the one that says Electronic Arts and it popped up. Should I look up the origin one instead or can I put the crack files into the ea one since I finally found it?

Hello,

Since you bought your base game in store, you should see the base game folder in Origin Games. Apply the Ultimate Fix there.

thanks for your help!
I completely forgot I used a serial code from a keygen so it would make it the ea one

Hello,

Have you installed the expansion using the setup? And don't forget to use the Ultimate Fix instead of the #crack in the Island Paradise torrent.

Hello,

You can extract them to a blank folder and then drag them to destination folder.
