No game disc found after installing Sims 3 generations. [SOLVED]

Post by enciel on Fri 27 Sep 2013, 05:51

I have sims ambitions, sims seasons and then I tried installing generations. This error pops up even if I already applied crack in C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and also tried latest fix

When i open launcher I noticed too that sims3 seasons is not listed on the toolbar below as installed? even though it is in the installed directory. So I tried uninstalling generations and now it says ambitions do not work Sad


What do I do?

Hello,

At first, download and apply the "manual patch": http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v157-fix-manual-patch

Then, re-download the "Ultimate fix": http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

Open the #crack folder only, copy the two files to C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Choose "replace existing files". And that should help you. Good luck ! Smile

Hi! 

Thanks for the prompt reply. It's working now!  I updated to manual patch but I downloaded using the EA manager. Do you know where it gets stored? If I add another expansion pack do I need to do that step again? Upgrade to 1.5.7 then use Ultimate fix?

Hello,

Yes, after installing another expansion, re-apply the manual patch and then the two files from the #crack folder in the Ultimate fix. And I'm glad it's working. Smile

I'm sorry, but I can't help with that (maybe another Helper can). Indeed, updating with the "manual patch" (the one that I posted) is the safest way.

But do you have any other questions maybe ?
