Ultimate fix and new expansions... [SOLVED]

Post by DozeyRosie on Fri 02 Aug 2013, 18:30

My downloads speed is so slow that I've been downloading them one by one, installing them and playing. I've only 5 so far and I installed the first 3 along with the base game. I had trouble with installing seasons properly yesterday and now I am unsure of the correct way. 

Do I have to apply the ultimate fix cracks and/or other files as and when I install the expansions, or do I just install the expansions and leave the cracks? 

Also, my laptop won't allow me to copy and replace, it will only allow me to move and replace, (something to do with memory) so do I need to repeatedly download the ultimate fix in order to install new expansions and apply the correct cracks?

thank you!! xxx   Help

Hello!

The steps ypu should follow are:

- Install an expansion.
-
Apply he manual patch.

Keep applying the manual patch after evrry pack you add.

- Apply the 2 files that are in the #crack folder within the Ultimate Fix. (So do NOT use those that come with the EP)

Do not bother about the other files inside the Ultimate Fix.

I hoped this helped! Sorry for any grammatical errors, I am writing this from my phone.

Tell me if it worked!

EDIT of first post ( No edit button on mobile version)

Make sure that if you add an EP you re-apply the manual oatch AND the files insde of the #crack folder of the Ultimate Fix.

Edit again: If tou don't know where to apply the crack, by default it is: C:/My Document/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin

 It's not in the Documents string, it's in C:/Program Files(86)/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin. 

Also, the best (most efficient) way to install is install the base game, apply the manual patch, install all the expansions you want, re-apply the manual patch, then use the #crack folder from the ultimate fix.

Yes, exactly. I was writing from my phone yesterday, it's a bit inconvenient.

 I figured, since you had said that elsewhere about the editing posts not working on mobile. (If you don't mind me saying, if you do have a smartphone, many of the browsers will now let you choose to request the desktop page, or leave mobile somehow. I can't stand to be on the mobile page for this forum because of all the restrictions.) But that's why I figured I'd just correct it, so that OP didn't get messed up with the crack. Smile

Ye, that was totally right to do. Also, I indeed can browse the full version, but it won't let me type in the textboxes.
