Hi

Yes, it means that you have to wait for the Ultimate fix to be updated. It might take a day or two to update.

you can convert it back to the 1.55 im sure by using the manual fix and then installing the ultimate fix again then when the new patch comes out here update it again to 1.57

Hello,

Manual patch can be found here:

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

But I can tell you converting back to 1.55 requires a clean reinstallation. Manual patching will not work. I suggest you wait instead of reinstallation.

Hello,

You can download the 1.55 manual patch instead of updating via launcher by reading this guide. Click "Cancel" when a pop-up asks you to update your game (when you run the launcher).

Hello,

Did you apply the Ultimate Fix afterwards according to that guide?

Hello,

First thing first, please repeat steps 2-4 of this guide again even though you have done the steps. Make sure you have applied the content of the folder #crack of the Ultimate Fix correctly (you only need this folder) to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. And please DON'T update your game to 1.57.
