Expansions require CD over support files

Post by Bianca_Solderini on Wed 07 Aug 2013, 18:58

Hi, my name is... Bianca, and I'm sorry for any gramatical error I might make
Before anything I have to praise Games 4 the World for providing both amasing dowloads and for the good suport I see in the foruns. Amasing work
I've downloaded all expansions of the Sims3 up to University life. I installed and played with them no problem. Then I had to move away so uninstalled them without deleting them.
Now I wanted to reinstall all of them and each expansion except for Generation, Seasons and Supernatural won't install, even with the manual update and the ultimate fix on the base game. I've always followed the installation guides....
So... the error that appears first is the CRC files that say that some files might be corrupt, which i proptly ignore and after it repeat over at least half a dozen files it goes up to a request to put the CD 1 that contains the file game\bin\staticpages\common\communitybg.jpg. for Sims 3 Ambitions and support\readme\pt_pt\pt_pt_EULA.rtf. for almost every other. Of course I don't have the CD. So the instalation is cancelled.... 
All the instalations have been in Portuguese, my home language even if my game is in English, I don't have a clue if it matters.
I thank you beforehand and excuse me for the long mensage.

Hello,

So you get an error message that tells you to "put in a CD" during installation ? Did you download your Sims 3 games from "Games4TheWorld" ? If yes, the format of the downloads is ".RAR" - and you need to open the file with WinRAR. You can find the downloads here:http://www.games4theworld.org/downloads.html

If you did that already, try to extract the contents of the .RAR again. So make an empty folder somewhere, then open the .RAR file with WinRAR, and extract all contents into the empty folder you just made.

I'm not sure if this can solve your problem, so let me know the result.

If you have done what Carlos G told you and you still have errors, then you need the missing files or to download the game again.

I uploaded the missing files:
