legal base game, trying to install university life

Post by blueicecreamxo on Fri 30 Aug 2013, 04:28

Hi everyone, I just have a couple of questions regarding the downloads.

I bought the base game as an actual CD & I have downloaded seasons, generations, & late night (also legally) through Origin.
I want to get UL to work, but the first time I tried I had to uninstall every expansion and sims game I had because the UL download and crack was just giving me a black screen every time I tried to play before my game crashed on me after a while.
So now, after a night of re-downloading everything, I just want to get things straight.

1. if i have the legal base game i DON'T put the crack in the folders?? or do i still have to do that?
2. right now, i basically installed my sims 3 base, generations, seasons, the pirated UL, & my legal late night (in that order bc someone said that it would work if i did that) WITHOUT the crack, but when i try to play it says that the UL disc is missing or isn't validated?

& basically, i just need help. should i add the crack or shouldn't i? did i do it correctly or am i missing a step.

also, my game is fully updated to v1.55

Thanks in advance~

Hello,

If you have "mixed" bought and downloaded game versions, my guess is that you would probably need a disc for the latest expansion that was released. But either way, we recommend to use the "Ultimate fix". Please, have another look at this here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Especially at the steps from 2 to 4.

Hello,

And that includes the crack. UL has overwritten your original TS3W.exe, and needs to be cracked.

Hello,

Just repeat steps 2-4 of this guide again and your game will work as normal.
