No Game/Bin

Post by flyingorangutans on Wed 11 Sep 2013, 05:25

Hi, I saw a similar thread but I found the Electronic Arts folder but can't find the games/bin one. I bought the sims 3 base game and generations but downloaded other expansions from here. Also I used the ultimate fix last time but I completely forgot how and why I used it.

//EDIT


also! I'm reading other threads and now I am confused... is the ultimate fix and patch separate? Do I need to download the patch too? Sorry for all the questions!!

Hello,

Did you buy the base game via Origin? If yes, the base game folder should be in C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games. And please follow steps 2-4 of this guide and try again. Make sure you have read this in the guide:


4. Open the "# Crack" folder in the Ultimate Fix and drag & drop the .exe and .dll file in there to exactly: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin   and choose "Copy and Replace" on the pop-up that appears, telling you the files already exist in that folder.
(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 )

Thank you! But to make sure, I have to do the second step of the guide (re-download&re-apply the manual patch) each time there is an update?

Hello,

Yes that's what an update is. The Ultimate Fix will only work when you have suitable (latest) update installed.
