The Sims 3: cracks/order/updates etc help me? [SOLVED]

Post by sinkwash on Sat 02 Jul 2011, 12:10

I've installed and uninstalled the game and expansions twice. So there's something I'm doing wrong.

I know you've spelt it out in one thread that there's no order of installation, aslong as you install the base game, followed by Generations.

I just want to know something regarding the cracks.

I take it that you don't apply any cracks at all now, apart from those included in the '#crack' folder, in the fix package you've previously provided? (i.e. just follow steps 10 - 14 in the installation guide you provided in the fix package?)

Therefore, is the proper process to follow:

1. Install Base game - dont apply any cracks
2. Install Generations - don't apply any cracks.
3. Install other expansions, in any order - don't apply any cracks.
4. Follow steps 10 - 14 in the installation guide

Please help...

Hi there,

That's right, you just install everything without applying any of the cracks provided with the download, then follow the steps for the fix to the letter.

Please let us know if you run into any other problems!

So I follow all the steps on the guide, if I'm installing all the expansions? Or is it just steps 11 - 14?

I ask because I read another thread where a user got the lot to work by only adding the cracks from the #crack folder - i.e. just following steps 11 - 14.

Hello,

You could also do that, if you like. After all, you ONLY need to apply the Generations crack.

1. Install everything in the correct order, but do NOT apply any cracks.
2. When all the games are done installing, only apply the Generations crack, which can be found in either the "# Crack" folder in the game's .rar file you downloaded or the Fix' "# Crack" folder. The files are the same.

Please note that you should copy the crack to the base game's installation folder and NOT to the Generation's installation folder, all as described in their included "# Installation Guide.txt"
