Sims 3 Error.

Post by Agent Sin on Tue 17 Sep 2013, 04:45

i got a problem similar to his. so when i followed the instruction to update i downloaded the manual patch that your linked in the file in the ultimate fix rar. long story short i got a message saying "it looks like you have installed an unofficial game modification that does not match your current version of the sims 3." now this only happens when i put the files from the #crack folder into the sims 3 folder. when i run the original TS3W.exe the game runs without saying the error message. i just get the fake sims 3 message on the menu screen.
 
P.S: i downloaded the update from origin and got the same error when adding the files from the #crack folder.

Hello,

Did you redownload the Ultimate Fix after patching your game? Do you have any mods? Please remove all the mods before patching and cracking.


Also instead of patching via launcher, please patch via the manual patch instead: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v157-fix-manual-patch. Afterwards, redownload a new version of the Ultimate Fix and apply the #crack from the new Fix.

Hello,

The Ultimate Fix is updated everytime a new patch is released. Did you try redownloading the Ultimate Fix?

In case you are not sure what I am talking about, here is the link: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems.

What EPs and SPs do you have installed and where did you obtain them? From us (G4TW) or another source? Can you post a pic of the game launcher so we can see what patch level you are at now?

You should be able to update to patch level 1.57 by copying the original TS3W.exe and TSLHost.dll files from the last expansion pack you have installed. They are in the other folders included with the Ultimate Fix. Depending on which of the EPs you have installed you should use the original files from either the Game name folder (i.e. Ambitions, late night, etc) or if you have Generations or newer, use the files from the folder marked "All expansion packs after and including Generations". Once you have copied the original files to your Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin folder, apply the Manual 1.57 Patch and then apply the Ultimate fix.

Hello,

Can you tell us the source of the download of the expansions/stuff packs? I suspect they may be the cause of the crashes.

ok then thats your problem. Razor does a good job on other games but their Sims3 files are very iffy because they are a repack which means they were edited. The same is probably true about the "others" you got.

Try replacing the Razor versions and the "others" versions(s) with our release. This should fix the problem.

Hello,

Reloaded is fine. And by the way, can you disable in-game store in the Options? That may help solve your problem.

So I've been noticing that at some points the game freezes then starts to respond in like 5 or 8 second.this might be because of the whole razor version thing or because i have sim detail on very high.

Hello,

This could be of the world you may be playing in too. Are you playing in Isla Paradiso? Also try lowering the in-game settings.

Hello,

Windowed mode may help, although I doubt it helps much. You can try to lower "Detailed lots" from 4 to 1.

Ther are several things that can cause those short lags, the amount of Expansion/Stuff packs you have installed, the amount of Custom Content installed (i.e. store content), how many and what types of mods you have installed, running background programs, CPU type and RAM, etc.

There are things you can do to decrease any lag such as closing any unessential programs and services while playing, setting all your game settings to high (yes sounds wierd but it works), using the 4GB Patch so the Sims can access more RAM and using a game booster like Razer Game Booster. Personally I use the 4GB patch and Razer for my game (All EPS and SPS installed and a ton of CC and Mods) and have almost 0 lag, once in awhile I get a bit of lag using the CAW tool but as for justplaying the game I get no lag at all on my single core 2.8 GHz CPU and 4 GB of RAM.
