Sims 3 Pets- I'm guessing I'm being an idiot, but I can't get this to work

Post by ethanwdp on Sun 20 Oct 2013, 17:44

:newfag: Noob <-- Before I accidentally unleash a frothing mob of angry people

So I downloaded the Sims 3 Pets from you guys on PirateBay and followed the instructions that came with the file. I did the "No disk 1 en-EULA file" fix and installed with no further issues. I put the crack .exe and the .dll into the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin"
I launched it from the cracked .exe, assuming that's what it is for, and upon trying to click play it came up with "Sims 3 Pets disk not inserted."
The instruction manual had never mentioned the need for mounting and dismounting files with Poweriso or Damon Tools, and I couldn't see anything in the downloaded Pets .rar that I could mount. So I had Origin (Not linked or active or anything, as I normally don't buy anything that EA pops out) and I remember finding out that my lost Sims 3 disk had been recorded as bought in Origin and I downloaded it from there. Mkay, so I put the crack into the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin" folder. And I can't even launch the launcher from there now. I'm obviously being a moron somewhere here, but I don't know where I went wrong. Anyone know where I messed up?

Hello!
You shouldn't have two base games, so either your Origin location or the EA one are fakes... Please only use one or it might confuse the game.
Also, just to make sure, but when you launched from the .exe, you mean the file you copied right? Not in the Ultimate Fix folder?

To clear things up, if your OS is in English, please use this tool.

Thanks, I had time to test it this weekend. And thanks for helping a newbie out, most forums bite my head off.

Did you get it to work? 

The crack is supposed to go into 
Computer > Local Disk (C:) Program Files [x86 if you're running on 64 bit] > Electronic Arts > The Sims 3 (not any of the expansion packs) > Game > Bin [ here is where you place the two files here with that came with the ultimate fix which you can get here. ]

(I thought you had put it into the documents folder at first but I misread)...

There is nothing to mount it has already been done all you have to do is install (the Admin has already done all of this for you ^^)

Hello,

Please extract the Sims 3 Pets expansion pack one more time, then use the Setup.exe file.  In other words, open the .rar file, create a folder somewhere (I prefer Desktop) and then drag and drop ALL the files from the .rar. into this folder.  This SHOULD fix any problems. 

IF not, your best bet is to redownload the expansion, making sure that is the only torrent you are downloading. This is necessary so that the torrent gets full bandwidth, just to ensure it downloads 100%! 

Let us know if this fixes it. :3
