Insert disc problem while installing

Post by emxlyy on Mon 29 Jul 2013, 08:53

Hello hopefully someone can help me

I am in the middle of installing the base game and when it is installing, it stops in the middle and says 

"please insert disk 1 that contains the file gamedata/shared/packages/fullbuild1.package."

I have no idea what to do from here. 

please help thanks Smile

So you have a PC and are installing the base game, right?
Do you use Daemon Tools Lite?

Ok. If it is a Windows, you need to download Daemon Tools Lite.
How else do you install?

For the Base Game, download and install Daemon Tools Lite!
Then create a second virtual disk.
On one disk, mount the Startup.iso, on the other mount the Disk1.iso.
Then launch the install from the startup disk.

Sure no problem. Keep that dialog box, go back to Daemon Tools and mount the other disk.
Then on the dialog box for the Startup disk, click on autorun.

No problem.
For the expansions though, the process is simpler. You don't need Daemon Tools anymore.
Just double-click the setup!

just one more question it asks this....making sure i am doing this correctly...ok so i went to #crack folder got the TS3 copied it....then went to the program files (x86)>electronic arts>the sims 3> game (didnt see game directory) > Bin then i replace it.. below is what its asking just making sure i went the right direction.

9. When the Installation is completed, open the '# Crack' file in this .rar and Copy + Paste
the 'TS3.exe' to 'Game Directory > Game > Bin' and REPLACE it by the existing one.

This should be the right location.
But you don't need to do this now.
Install all expansions, and update your game to 1.55. Then move the files from the #Crack folder of the Ultimate Fix.
No need to use the crack from any torrent, they are all out of date.
If your OS is in English, please use my new tool (see here). Download the latest Ultimate Fix and the tool will apply it for you!

You can use the tool it will do it for you!
Otherwise, just the files from the #Crack folder of the latest Ultimate Fix from here.

You don't install the Ultimate Fix. It's just the files inside the #Crack folder that you copy. That's why I mentioned my tool...
And yes for the rest!
