Do I need to patch? [SOLVED]

Post by DozeyRosie on Tue 20 Aug 2013, 16:14

I'm installing Outdoor Stuff pack and in the instructions it tells me I need to run TS3_1.19.44.010001_Update. When I do I get an error message reading that it is an earlier version and I'll have to uninstall first. 

I've currently got 4 expansions and v1.55. Do I have to patch? If so how do I go about uninstalling?

Thank you, much love! xx


Also I've already changed the value in the registry editor, will this need changing back?

Hello,

Everytime you install an additional expansion, it's recommended that you do the steps from 2 to 4 from here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Please ignore the patch "1.19"; these instructions are obsolete now. Wink  Always use the current patch 1.55 (see the link that I posted).

Just to check, when you use the manual patch do you simply run the application?

So I just corrected my spelling to realize you've just quoted it!! Haha. Razz 

It is most definitely solved; it installed happily, starts smoothly (seems quicker than before actually WhatDidUJustCallMe?) and runs pretty well!! 

One elated girly!!  THANK YOU!! xxx


Moderator edit: I interpret this as 'problem solved'. Smile  OK, have fun with the game ! Topic closed.
