S3 Island Paradise Insert disc

Post by Small-Blue-Owl on Sun 14 Jul 2013, 02:39

Hi, my problem is that I downloaded the Sims 3 Island Paradise Expansion pack and after I followed the instructions I go to launch the game but it just says "Please insert The Sims 3 Island Paradise disk" I've downloaded the Ultimate fix, the manual patch (which was useless cause everything's up to date) and I've read tons of other people with the same problem but things just don't work. It's just a hunch but I think the problem may be starting when I copy the .exe and .dll file, idk. I really need help

Hello,

Actually, it's not a bad idea to re-apply that "manual patch", because that way you can make sure that the game files are "OK" - for a lack of a better expression.

So here's my suggestion: Re-apply the manual patch (even if it says that your game is "updated already"). After that you open the #crack folder in the Ultimate fix and copy the two files in there (TS3W.exe & TSLHost.dll). Copy them to C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin (=the Sims 3 base game location). Probably a window will pop up, in which you have to select "replace all existing files".

See if that helps. By the way, you should not use the cracks that are included in the games you download; only use the "Ultimate fix".

Can you post a screenshot of where you are putting the two files from the #crack folder of the Ultimate fix ?

To upload a screenshot here, use the "Host an image" button (select resolution 1024x). After that you should get an URL for the screenshot. Now you go to the button to the right ("Insert image") and paste the URL there.

OK, for now I have to think about other possible solutions to this. But do you have the "No-CD mod" installed ? If yes, take it out. Also add the filepath of your cracks to the "exceptions" of your anti-virus software. Then re-apply the two crack-files (TS3W.exe + TSLHost.dll).

Otherwise I will come back to you tomorrow (it's getting late for me).

Alright, then. Wat.

Open up the Ultimate fix again, look inside the folder "Base game", this folder has two files too, namely TS3W.exe and TSLHost.dll. Unlike the files from the #crack-folder, these are "original" files. Now copy the two files from the "Base game" folder in the Ultimate fix into the base game location - like you already did before.

See if that helps.

I've looked at your first post again.. and I suspect I have overlooked the most obvious thing Embarassed

In order for the "Ultimate fix" to work you need at least one of the following expansion/stuff packs installed too: 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff, Seasons, Supernatural, Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry’s Sweet Treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff, Generations.

Of course, after doing that, remove the "No-CD mod" again.

Okay thanks, I'm actually downloading Supernatural right now. Don't worry anyone makes mistakes. It'll take a long time for Supernatural to finish, I'll get back to you then.

You could always try Twallans nocd mod. Although I don't think its compatible with the manual patch/ultimate fix. I could be wrong though. Smile
