Sims 3 supernatural wont launch and update. [SOLVED]

Post by lil_enjeen on Thu 26 Sep 2013, 09:35

Hi,

I've been searching this thread but couldn't find the fix for my issue.  If this topic shouldn't be here, pls have it moved to the correct one.
I always check this site but this is my first time to register and post a topic.

So my problem is with Sims 3 supernatural pack.

I installed the base game then installed the pack and copy the crack to the base game folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin) when I launched it, it downloaded all the necessary updates via Origin. and all installed correctly.  Rebooted my PC just in case.

When I launched it to play the game, it wont launch.  The game launcher works fine but when you click the play button, it will disappear and will just say that the launcher is running in the systray then will disappear again.

My Sims3 version is 1.57.62.023002
When i mouse over to supernatural, the version says 15.0.135.018001

I did some search and check how i can update it to version 16 because of another thread and the instruction for that is to do a manual patch but the patch is for the base game. (file says To-9210-1.57.62.023002.tgz)

I also tried the ultimate fix where you need to copy the file to the base game and that didn't work either.  I can play the university pack but not the supernatural and I really wanna play this pack more than the others.

I dont know what to do.  Please give me some ideas.. Sad

Hello,
What do you mean by "you can play University but not Supernatural"?
The loading screen is always the last expansion out, so it will stay University Life even if you install former expansion packs.
You should check inside the game for items from those packs and special abilities...

Hello,

The inroduction screen is The Sims 3 University Life because the latest expansion pack you installed is The Sims 3 University Life. And all of the features of the expansion packs/stuff packs are integrated into the base game. If you don't believe me, make your sim explore every nook and cranny of the University Town and see if there are supernaturals. Also go to Create-A-Household and see if you can change your sims' occult to other supernatural forms. Go to Buy Mode also to see if there are any items that are labelled with Supernatural icon. If not, please let me know.

so that's how it works? well..i originally have university life then installed the supernatural and the movie stuff.. when i clicked on the supernatural icon, it launched it but showed me the movie stuff screen.

So i wont really get the supernatural screen? i uninstalled all packs and reinstall just the supernatural and it wont open anymore. i guess ill try installing the other 2 and see if i can get the supernatural sims feature.

Yes, that's how The Sims 3 works. The latest stuff pack/expansion pack you have is The Sims 3 Movie Stuff, so that's why you have The Sims 3 Movie Stuff as the intro screen. Have you repeated steps 2-4 of this guide after installing expansion packs?

//EDIT

Big EDIT: The introduction screen showing the latest stuff pack/expansion pack doesn't mean you cannot play with other features regarding other expansion packs/stuff packs.
