Please insert disk?? [SOLVED]

Post by damnit847 on Sun 13 Oct 2013, 22:51

Hi again Facepalm , Fixed my problem with the manual patch and now when I did apply the ultimate fix after installing the patch I get an error asking me to please insert the island paradise disk when trying to open the game?  I have had this problem before but was when I did not apply the ultimate fix correctly and applying it again correctly was what fixed the problem before so I tried a second time and this time it did not fix the problem?? stuck and not sure what to do from here.

Is your base game from Origin?
If yes, you should paste the files in C:\Program Files(x86)\Origin\The Sims 3\Game\Bin
Otherwise, to C:\Program Files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.
If this is what you did, you can try the No-CD Mod by Nraas.

I dont think my game is from origin, I did check and do not have the sims 3 game in the origin folder. I just tried the No-CD mod from nraas and still have the same pop up?

Hello,

Please, re-apply the "manual patch". After that, double-click on the TS3W.exe in the base game location.

If you placed the NoCD-mod correctly, it should work.

If the mod is not working, then something is wrong with your install.
Did you re download the Ultimate Fix? It is not the same...

Please do. You'll need to apply the Ultimate Fix again.

As a sidenote, you cannot have the NoCD-mod and the Ultimate fix at the same time. So you either have to choose my suggestion above OR Shamrock's method.

Plus, you need to download the latest NRAAS NoCD-mod (the one that is compatible with your base game vesion).

not sure how to do the noCD mod correctly so I did not try the method, just re applyed the ultimate fix and did not work scratch    even checked which fix it is to make sure it was updated and was not using an old one but was the new updated one....so confused.

1) You need to set up a "Mod framework" for mods to work. Look here. Then go to "guides" and read through the "how to install .package files"-guide. You should then know where to put the mod. And again, re-apply the manual patch, put the mod in the right place and double-click on the TS3W.exe in the base game location to start the game.

2) If you still want to try the "Ultimate fix", then take the NoCD-mod out again. Deactivate your anti-virus software completely. Then try again - of course, when you copy the two files from the #crack-folder in the Ultimate fix (only this - nothing else) to the base game location, you should replace all existing files (choose "copy and replace" for both files).

Otherwise, this is all I can say. We constantly see lots of people with the same problem as yours - and in ~90% of the cases, the two files from the #crack in the Ultimate fix were not placed correctly. To repeat, look at step #4 in the link in my signature saying "Must-read: how to install the Sims 3 correctly".

Thank you so much! I tried the fix one more time and payed more attention to what pops up when moving the files from the folders to the matching expansion packs and before I was clicking the check mark below and clicking allow but this time clicked move and replace instead and it worked! not sure why it made a difference but glad it worked! feel silly now that it wasnt something so complex Embarassed  lol but thanks!

OK, so the game is working now ?

If yes, is there anything else - or can I close the topic ?  For future reference, always check this topic here - I strongly recommend (to everyone) to bookmark the following page:  http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
