Just a simple install question please!!

Post by jsvez2010 on Sun 14 Jul 2013, 05:44

First I have read the "Read This First" fully understand it. I am dowloading everything all over again, I had installed it for my wife on her computer, but she forgot not to let it update thru Origin and it messed it all up. I thought I saved the downloads, but hell guess I did not. Well I am almost finished downloading everything, and will then reinstall everything again. But I thought at one time there was a post with the preferred install order after the base game to avoid install problems. I want to do this, install everything first, and I mean everything, then I will patch, fix and crack it as instructed. Just want to know if anyone had a best order of install.

Thanks folks, I hope I do not get flamed for this, but honestly I typed in the search and did try.

Hello there,

The thing with the "preferred installation order of expansions" is a kind of "urban legend" among simmers Wink  which is just not true. Here's how you could install all the stuff:


1) Install the base game first

2) Download and apply that "manual patch". Find it here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v155-fix-manual-patch

3) Install the expansions, but...

4) ...after every expansion installed it's recommended that you should re-apply that manual patch, even if it says that your game "is updated already".

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

Keep in mind that in your case (because you updated the game with the manual patch) you only need the contents of the #crack sub-folder in the Ultimate fix.
You need to copy the contents of #crack (TS3W.exe + TSLHost.dll) into the following location: C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Of course, when you are prompted to do so, choose "replace existing files". Wink

Also keep in mind that for the "Ultimate fix" to work, you'll need AT LEAST one of the following expansions: 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff, Seasons, Supernatural, Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry’s Sweet Treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff, Generations.

6) And that's it basically ! Very Happy

Good luck for now !
