Cannot open game from either launcher or ts3w.exe

Post by musette9999 on Fri 05 Jul 2013, 00:27

So I have been trying for the past 2 days to get this sorted and I can't figure out where I am going wrong.
I have a copy of the base game and world adventures that i bought through origins ages ago on a different pc. I installed them on my current laptop, then when opening them the launcher opened but then it asked for a security code. I tried entering the one I got when I purchased the game but it didnt work, so I found one online. Then it came up with a message saying that the licence limit had been reached. I do have the base game installed on a different pc, but it is really on its last legs and incapable of running it, so i opened up the launcher on that one and tried to deauthorize that machine. Logged back onto the pc i want to use, but still no luck trying to run the game, i got the same licence limit message. 

Searching for ways to fix this online I found the ultimate fix, and following the instructions saw i needed to have a later expansion installed as well for it to work, so i downloaded and installed pets as well. Then I followed the instructions for how to install, including the manual patch, and then copying the crack over. I no longer get the licencing error message, I can open the launcher just fine as before, but when i click play the launcher closes, my pc seems like its about to do something, but then nothing happens. Checking in the task manager I am certain the game is not opening at all. I have also tried running it straight from the TS3W exe, but that has the same result.

Ideally I was hoping to get these working and then install some more expansion packs if I think my pc can take it, but at the moment I don't seem to be getting anywhere. I have read some other threads of people who had similar problems to me, and tried following their solutions, but to no avail.

I hope someone has some ideas of what I could try, I would really like to get playing again.

Hello,

I'm not sure if I understood you correctly, but I suppose you get these "enter security code" prompts because you have this "Origin" thing installed ? (I don't have that).

If yes, the two files from the #crack in the Ultimate fix go to C:\Program files(x86)\Origin games/The Sims 3. Copy and replace the exisiting files.

Hello,



Are you sure you applied the Ultimate Fix correctly? The directory of placing the content of #crack folder in the Ultimate Fix should be C:\Program Files\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

Hi, thanks for the reply.

Yes I'm sure I've put the files from the crack in the right place, they replaced the original files in the game>bin folder. I have tried this multiple times in case they didn't copy over correctly, but still no luck. The game simply wont open, whether I try from the launcher or the TS3W exe.

Hello,

Have you tried applying the manual patch?

yes, I have applied the manual patch, it worked and my game is now up to date I think. The launcher says it is version 1.55.4.022017.

i have also tried running the game as administrator but that seems to make no difference.

Hello,

Please apply the manual patch again, since I have experienced the same as you. I have patched my game manually twice to get it working.

Hello,

I think The Sims 3 of yours is corrupted. Try to use Revo uninstaller to uninstall everything and attempt a clean reinstallation.

Ok I will try that, thanks for the help.

I'll let you know how it goes.
 
//EDIT


Ok so I uninstalled the base game and both expansions using the revo uninstaller.

I downloaded the base game and pets, the games4theworld torrents on tpb. Both installed fine, updated during the process, cracked, and then ran the manual patch as well. I am still getting the same issue though. The launcher opens fine but then when I click play it closes and nothing else happens.

Hello,

This problem usually occurs when you're using an outdated Ultimate Fix.
Please RE-DOWNLOAD the latest version! In other words, RE-DO step 3 and 4: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Good luck!
