Text missing in game menus :(

Post by aoywi on Sat 07 Sep 2013, 21:16

Hello! 
I have a very annoying problem with my newly installed Sims 3, i have followed all the instructions, and have installed your packages on a few computers, without any problems, so i think the problem is with some driver or something.

A few pics of the problem will explain them best:

Hello,

Please make sure you have done the following correctly:

(1) Apply the manual patch here.
(2) Download the latest Ultimate Fix here.
(3) Apply the #crack of the Ultimate Fix to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts (OR Origin Games)\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

Hello,

Usually this error is due to wrong application of the Ultimate Fix. Still I am not sure what the cause of your problem is. Can you try this? Also make sure you have applied the latest patch (1.57) and downloaded the latest Ultimate Fix and applied the correct content to the correct location.

I tried changing the language in the registry, but didn't help Sad
I will try to redownload both the 1.57 patch and the ultimatefix Smile

Hello,

Remember you only need the folder #crack in the Ultimate Fix. Simply apply the content of this folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin

IMPORTANT: If you downloaded and installed the base game via Origin, bear in mind that the base game folder should be in the folder "Origin Games" instead of the folder "Electronic Arts".

Hello,

Did you use WinRAR to extract the Ultimate Fix only?

I tried copying all the original files from the fix over to the game folders, apply the patch, then the crack, but the same thing still happens Sad
I can see it already in the start of the game, at the load screen, at the bottom, the text is all blurry, and suddenly becomes a long odd line.

Hello,

Well I have suggested this in my second or third post (I don't really remember). But anyway, I suggest you initate a clean reinstallation by Your Uninstaller Pro (available in www.games4theworld.org) with Super Mode. Afterwards, follow the following:

(1) Download all the torrents including the base game and all the expansions from www.games4theworld.org (I start to suspect you've got the base game/expansions elsewhere)
(2) Install the base game with Daemon Tools Lite and mount the virtual discs (.iso). If you have any problems regarding this, don't hesitate to ask.
(3) Apply the manual patch.
(4) Install any expansions you want.
(5) Apply the #crack of the Ultimate Fix to the base game bin folder.

Hello,

Is The Sims 3 base game installed on other computers v.1.57? Open the launcher of The Sims on each computer and give me the numbers (all computers) shown on bottom-left corner of the launcher.
