Manual Patch Download problem. [SOLVED]

Post by magzorz on Sun Oct 06, 2013 5:06 am

Hi Smile thank you so much for your downloads and tutorials, they're a great help!


I was wondering if you could put your manual patch on the 'How to intall the sims correctly' in a torrent file...(I know this might be a problem because of the seeding, but if you could divide it in some smaller files and upload it... I think other users might have this problem as well!) I live in China and downloading directly over here takes the whole day and sometimes it fails after a few hours, and the manual patch is huge!!

Thank you so much!

Hello,

If you download (from Games4TheWorld) the latest expansion/stuff pack that was released, you will also get the latest manual patch. For example, the latest release is "The Sims 3: Movie stuff". If you open the .RAR file and look under the folder Support/Updates you will see the latest manual patch too (in this case the patch 1.57.62.0230xx).

I hope this helps you. Smile

So you mean if I follow the tutorial about how to install the sims 3 correctly, I can skip that step?
I torrented University life a few days ago and installed it but I haven't put the Ultimate Fix because I was afraid of skipping that step. So I look under the extracted folder in the .rar file in the torrent and I find that?
My Sims 3 is currently up to date because it was bought with Origin but I wanted to put more expansions.
I'm going to try what you said and I'll report soon, thanks!

Yes, you can "skip" step #2 in the tutorial then. But you always have to download the latest release, in order to get the latest manual patch. Wink  As of now, the latest release is "Movie stuff". 

//EDIT

And after applying the latest manual patch, you should also apply the latest Ultimate fix too (steps #3 and #4 in the tutorial).

//EDIT2

Otherwise, if you don't want the latest expansions/stuff packs (so only the patch), then I'm afraid you have to google for a torrent on that, if you can't download it directly.

Hello,

If your game is already up to date from Origin, you may not need the manual patch at all.

Thanks so much!
The game is working without the manual patch! Very Happy
I hope I can install as many expansions on top of that as I can!

Moderator edit: if you want to have the manual patch for the next expansion, then you can just download the expansion here and look into the folder I told you above. There you'll find the patch. Otherwise I'm glad it works for you. Happy simming ! Topic closed.
