Help Please

Post by court99 on Sat 13 Jul 2013, 05:48

Obviously I am a total newbie at doing this. I need to make sure I am doing it right. 
Last night I downloaded all the games and expansion packs using utorrent.. tonight I downloaded winrar to extract all the files and Damon Lite tools Ultra to mount. 
Now, I am doing the first one, just the Sims 3, and I have extracted everything and mounted. My question is.. do I need to copy and past the 'TS3.exe' from the crack file now or do I need to instal the manual patch first?

If anyone is willing to chat with me back and forth to make sure Im doing this right it will be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Please follow this guide instead of the one in your torrent. Bear in mind that you will need at least one expansion mentioned there to work.

Hello,

I recommend this way of installing: (by the way, you don't need to mount anything, just extract the contents of the .RAR to empty folders; namely one empty folder for each separate game/expansion).

1) Install the base game

2) Apply the manual patch: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v155-fix-manual-patch

3) Install the expansions

4) After each expansion installed, always re-apply the manual patch, even if it says "your game is updated already". So let's say you install "Ambitions", then you need to re-apply the manual patch; then you install "Generations", you need to patch again; and so on.

5) Apply the Ultimate fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

You just need to extract the #crack folder of the Ultimate fix with WinRAR again (ignore all other contents). Copy the contents of the #crack folder (TS3W.exe + TSLHost.dll) to C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Replace the existing files of course.

OK, that's maybe quite a bit of new information, but still, give it a try. Wink

Good luck !

P.S. Never use the cracks that are included in the expansions you download; only use the Ultimate fix.

Hello,

Yes of course. Just follow Carlos G.'s instruction and you will be fine.

Hello,

After downloading the manual patch, a panel will show up and you can follow the instructions shown on the panel. Not much actually, just click "Next" or "Ok" and follow what the panel shows you.

Ok and one last question for now, Carlos had said to keep reapplying the maual patch each time you install another expansion. Does that mean that i have to download the manual patch again or can I use the same one again and again.
