Confused and still crashing!! :(

Post by DozeyRosie on Thu 01 Aug 2013, 15:05

Hi there guys,

I'm really sorry and feel like a complete hat for not being able to sort this out myself (Noob ). I can see you have put A LOT of time and information into sorting it out for everyone. 

I've read and followed your instructions from the 'Must Read' page, installing the base game as well as pets, generations and island paradise. (Pets with the base game, generations a few days later and island paradise later that week.) It's been running brilliantly - if a little laggy which I assume I can put down running it off a laptop? 

My problem lies with the seasons expansion. I installed it today - very excited about the weather - but since I have finished and applied the cracks it won't even load before crashing. 'Sims 3 has stopped working' (checks for solution) 'A problem caused the program to stop working. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.' 

This morning I searched your site and tried a number of things, changing system commands... (bcdedit.etc), DEP, EA official support options. It all seems like it might work at the time but it's still crashing. 

It could just be my luck but I really really really really love this site, and this game and everything and well please.... I'm desperate!! 

If there's anything you can suggest to help, I'll be forever in your debt!!

Thank you in advance,
Dozey Me!! XXX

Hello,

What crack have you applied?

I'm not sure if this is what you mean, but this is what I did.. :?

3.After the installation finished, open the "# Crack" folder in this .rar file and 
drag & drop (or copy) the "TSW.exe" and the "TSLHost.dll" file in there to exactly:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin (SO NOT THE EXPANSION'S INSTALLATION
FOLDER, BUT THE BASE GAME'S INSTALLATION FOLDER INSTEAD!!!)

Hello,

So you applied the crack from the Ultimate Fix? Have you downloaded the latest Ultimate Fix and manual patch (1.55)?

That was from the seasons folder after I had installed it.

The installation guide from the ultimate fix I downloaded and applied said it was last updated 23/6/13 (so I assume so) and I applied the 1.55 manual patch, but neither since I installed Seasons. Is this maybe where I've gone wrong?

Hello,

Don't apply the #crack in The Sims 3: Seasons folder! Apply the #crack in the Ultimate Fix instead!

So I don't need to apply the manual crack again, just the Seasons crack in the Ultimate fix? 

I really don't have a clue... just realised how much older than you I am as well!! haha...
thank you so much though!!

Hello,

You don't need the #crack in Seasons torrent, just drag and drop the contents of #crack folder of the Ultimate Fix to C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Replace the existing files whenever neccessary.

Right.... So I did the wrong thing by using the seasons #crack and replacing the files in 'C:(blah blah blah)Game/Bin' folder, which would have been those from the ultimate fix from the initial install?? 

So I should re-download ultimate fix and use that crack again??

Yeah?? lol xxx

Hello,

If the Ultimate Fix is up-to-date (compatible with 1.55 of the base game), then you don't have to redownload again. But for safety (in case you don't know if it is up-to-date), you should redownload the Ultimate Fix again and apply the #crack inside the Ultimate Fix.
