Hello,

If you have bought the base game and you only have this installed, you don't need the Ultimate Fix. However, if you want to install other expansions from G4TW, you will need the Ultimate Fix.

Hello,

Have you manually patched your game to the latest version (1.55) before applying the Ultimate Fix? The correct directory of applying the #crack in the Ultimate Fix (you only need the contents of this folder) should be Contents/Resources/trangaming/c_Drive/Program Files/Origin Games/The Sims 3/Game/Bin.

Hello,

Are you certain you have followed correctly the installation guide in Mac's Ultimate Fix (not pc's one)?

hi, yes i did.

i installed the base game from the download from origin. i applied the manual patch provided here as an alternate way of updating because the other direct way wasn't going through. i then converted the expansions to dmg and installed it, applied, copied and pasted from the folders in the ultimate fix, and then applied the crack. 

i've done this numerous times on pc, but im having the most problems now on my new mac.
