Ultimate Fix downloads as VLC file :( [SOLVED]

Post by katpertierra on Fri 25 Oct 2013, 09:03

Hey guys!

So, obviously, the title says it all. AHAHAHAHA. Whenever I download the file, whether off this site or the mirror site, it always downloads as a VLC rar file. Any ideas? Smile

UPDATED:

Additional information. I'm honestly a computer noob, typical girl who knows squat about PCs and MACs, so, I don't care if I sound ridiculous, but the file is a rar file with the VLC logo. It's also a binary file? Eeep. AHAHAHA. I'm sorry if I come off as dumb, but, really, I don't know much. AHAHAHAHAHA. Any help would be highly appreciated! I honestly just want to play already! HAHAHAHAHA. Thank you in advance to those who read and can help! Smile

Hello dieneryn! I actually managed to find a way! I just had to delete the VLC app so the file would become a regular rar, download the iArchiver and it helped me out! I absolutely appreciate the effort that you put! Smile

Oh no wait okay! I've stumbled across another problem! I'm in step 10 of the PDF form for the ultimate fix and it says to click "show orignal" when i right click the sims 3 icon. However, show original isn't showing up. What should I do? I'm sorry for being such a 'noob' but you've got all the stars and maybe you'd know what to do! I'm so sorry dieneryn! Sad

Hi there no worries at all! If you right-click do you see "Show package contents"? That works as well. Smile

Oh! That's it?! AHAHAHA. This whole time I thought that it would defeat the purpose of the first step. It works perfectly fine! Thank you! I told you I'm quite the noob when it comes to these things! I should just stick to books, but, then again, the Sims makes me feel like a god, so, yes. AHAHAHAHAHA. Solved? You could delete this post then. :)Thank you again for you help! You are most kind!
