ITF loading screen crash after applying Ultimate Fix

Post by plumbob on Sat 02 Nov 2013, 19:40

After I installed Into the Future yesterday, I got the "unofficial game modification" error every time I started the game. It always let me click "continue" and I was able to play for hours without any problems (aside from saving taking longer than usual), so it didn't really bother me. I just assumed it was caused by a mod that hasn't been updated for 1.63 yet, so I removed all of my core mods and deleted the cache files, but still got the error message. Like I said, not a big deal, but slightly annoying nonetheless.

So I checked the forum and did what was suggested to people with similar problems (like here) : re-downloaded and re-applied the manual 1.63 patch and Ultimate Fix (aka steps 2-4). I followed the installation guide PDF exactly, so I don't think I messed anything up.
When I started the game, I still got the "unofficial game modification" error and then the Island Paradise loading screen instead of the ITF one. After a few seconds the music stopped, the loading cursor switched to my normal one and I got the "has stopped working" error message.

I tried it again with the ITF crack instead, which got me to the right loading screen, but the game still crashed. 
Then I tried the patch + ultimate fix #crack method a second time, but still with the same result.

Is there anything I can do aside from uninstalling and re-installing everything (which would take me ages)?


(And yes, I always deleted the cache files before trying to start the game.)

Hello,


I'm sorry to hear you're having a lot of problems!

Can you please open the .PDF within the Ultimate Fix.rar and tell me what date you see?

Thanks for your reply!

"Updated on: 23-10-2013", so I guess it's the latest version.

Okay, it should say in the .pdf, "31-10-2013".  If it does not say this, you still have an old version!

Please go here and redownload the Fix, then reapply it:  mediafire.com download/yyj26627swhp5ye/The_Sims_3_fix.rar

Let me know if this solves your error.  ^_^

Oh, that explains a lot, thanks!^^
The one I used was from >this post< so I thought it was the newest one. 
I'll try it right away. Smile

//EDIT

Nope, sorry, still the same.

Do you have any mods on your game or custom content (CC)?

Nevermind, it works now. 

Apparently something went wrong when I installed ITF, because I just re- installed it, applied the patch & fix, and everything's alright now.

Thanks for trying to help though! Smile
