World Adventures instructions if you bought the base game? [SOLVED]

Post by Velveeta on Mon 02 Sep 2013, 06:56

Hello. I'm so sorry all, if there has been a thread on this. I'm sure there has, but despite searching on the site, I haven't quite found one explaining a few things I'm confused about.
I bought the base game from origin. When I go to "Regedit" and Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE, "The sims 3" folder isnt there. :(So.. do I skip this step? I'm not sure what to do because the instructions are for those who downloaded The Sims 3 from here. What steps should I skip, or what should I change/not change or do? I'm so confused.. I'm so sorry.

Also, I read "how to install the sims 3 correctly" and did all those steps. However, when finished, it said Showtime needed a disk (never happened before.) I mounted Showtime (didn't download from you guys) and the game launcher would start but not the game itself. Looks like I messed up big time during the installation process.. So I had to uninstall EVERYTHING, and reinstall it all back. I kinda don't want to have to wait two hours again to install the sims 3. Shocked 

Help

Hello,

First of all if you don't have any problems with the installation of The Sims 3: World Adventures (And I can tell you didn't receive any errors during the installation of The Sims 3 : World Adventures right?), you don't even have to read the instructions in the torrents. But I think you overlooked something. Did you overlook this piece of information?


\"Must Read How to install The Sims 3 correctly" thread wrote:(If you downloaded and installed your base game via Origin, the crack goes into this folder instead: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin )


Please repeat steps 2-4 of "Must Read' again, but bear in mind you need to place the #crack of the Ultimate Fix to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and replace the existing files.

I did place the #crack in origin games\the sims 3\game\bin, i thought perhaps that's where I went wrong. Hmmm.. Im going to try it again. Very Happy 
But, in the World Adventure cracks, I don't need to place any of them? Or should I still do Crack 1 and 3? The first time around, I didn't do any of the cracks except the ultimate fix one, once i'd installed all the expansion packs too.

Hello,

You don't need any cracks in any Sims 3 expansion pack/stuff pack torrents.
