Sims 3 Ultimate Fix Question. [SOLVED]

Post by CIAmike on Sat 25 Jun 2011, 06:59

Just wanted to say thanks first for all the help I've gotten from this site already.

In the ultimate fix instructions step 3 it says to paste the base game files (TS3 and TSLHost.dll) in
C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin

But then in step 10 it says to paste the generation files (TS3W and TSLHost.dll) in
C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin

So wont the second TSLHost.dll replace the first one? and there will also be a TS3 and TS3W in
C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin

Is that what is supposed to happen? I just want to make sure I'm not misunderstanding the instructions.

Hello,

Yes, that is correct. Those aren't the crack files yet, those are the original files. Without those files you can not update the game without getting the "Invalid file" error.

Somewhere at the last steps, after updating, it'll tell you to do the same step for the Generation crack. (Read the steps very carefully!) This is the actual crack and you only need to crack Generations.

Thank you for the quick response. I did exactly what the instructions said to get just sims 3 and generation and its working perfectly. The only thing is when I went to update it (before applying the crack) it said it couldn't connect so it showed there were no updates, but its still working fine. Maybe it didn't connect because I didn't download the EA download manager during the install?

If I get other expansions in the future (not new ones but the stuff already out) can I:
replace the crack with the original generation files
apply all the fixes in the ultimate fix
update via sims 3 launcher
apply crack again

or will it be better to uninstall sims 3 + generations and start everything from the beginning again?

I'm sorry if I was supposed to start a new thread since this is kind of a new question, If you want to close this then I'll know to post a new thread. Thank you for all your help so far, I really appreciate it.

EDIT:
I'm almost done downloading all expansions and stuff packs. Once they've all been downloaded I'll install them, apply fixes from Ultimate Fix, update, then put crack in the original sims 3 program files. Hopefully nothing will go wrong, I'll write update on here when I finish. For now I downloaded the EA download manager which is called Origin now, installed it, and it updated properly this time.

Hello,

No, not at all. Feel free to post all your questions in one topic.

What I recommend is that you manually install the EA Download Manager and then re-apply the Fix. The updating should work now.
When you decide to install any other expansions, just install those and when finished re-apply the Fix.

Please let me know if you have any more problems / questions!
