problem with options

Post by gugule on Tue 02 Jul 2013, 11:50

Hello, I'm really new on this forum but before posting I tried looking for an answer or something, and I found the ultimate fix. My game didn't work it was saying that the disc wasn't in there or the screen goes black with just a white mouse on it. So I tried the ultimate fix and the game started. I though everything was okay but, they said that they couldn't find my video card or something. I clicked ok and when I go in options, there's empty blue cases. I can't start a new save, I can't choose a town etc... I can't even close the game from there.
Before everything, I bough the base game, world adventure, ambitions, late night, generations, pets, supernatural and seasons. I lose some of the series code of them so I downloaded them from your site, and everything worked ! But by wanting to reinstal world adventure, I did a wrong manip apparently and my game didn't work anymore.. So I retired all the cc, mods etc but it still didn't work. Aaand I desinstalled, reinstalled billions times my games and now I'm here. I'm really sorry for bothering and the long post but, please someone help... :/





+thanks for all the awesome job you do, it's incredible !

Hello,

It seems that the WA EP is corrupted. For a clean reinstallation, you can read this. Where did you put the crack in?

Hello,

Hello,

Let me try to clarify something:

You can actually ignore the folders of different expansions in the Ultimate Fix. Please use the #crack folder in the Ultimate Fix ONLY. Copy over the content of #crack to the following: C:\Program Files\Origin Games\The Sims3 (since you bought the base game).

Gugule:
Les fichiers du dossier #Crack sont ceux nécessaires pour jouer. Les autres dossiers contiennent les fichiers originaux non mis à jour...
Les fichiers du dossier #Crack sont à mettre dans le dossier C:\Program Files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.
Au point où tu en es, copies tous les fichiers des dossiers sauf le dossier Crack, puis recliques sur le Manual Patch.
Puis reprend les fichiers du Crack!

Hello,

Did you install the base game you bought or install the base game via G4TW?

Hello,



Alright then. As shamrock said,


@Shamrock wrote:The files in the Crack # (of the Ultimate Fix) are those necessary to play. Other files containing the original files (Of the Ultimate Fix) are not updated ...
The files in the Crack # (of the Ultimate Fix) are put in the C: \ Program Files(x86)\Electronic Arts\ The Sims 3\Game\Bin
 Apply the manual Patch and then apply the Ultimate Fix . [...]

Sure, anything else we can help you with?
And was I wrong in thinking you were French?
