Sims 3 Island Paradise (Need to insert disc?)

Post by Auror3 on Thu 07 Nov 2013, 13:18

Basically, I have a purchased Sims 3 base game but a recently downloaded expansion pack (Island Paradise). I have followed the steps on how to install the game correctly, I downloaded the new Ultimate Fix folder, and placed the Crack in Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin folder but when I start the game, it tells me that I need to insert disc? I tried to follow the steps on placing the Crack in Origin Games folder but once I click on it, it's completely empty...
Please help, I am so confused and have been at this for a while, I am close to giving up.

Can you be more descriptive and concise?

Can you also tell me the date of modification of the folder #crack from the Ultimate Fix? This will help solve the problem.

Also open skuversion.txt in the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Give me the number on the line "Gameversion=".

I have a purchased base game of the Sims 3, but recently downloaded the expansion pack Island Paradise from another website. I came to this site because it seemed to really understand my problem and it's how I got the Ultimate Fix folder. I copied and replaced the #crack from that folder to the Sims 3 base game folder. Everything seemed good until I clicked the play button from the launcher and it told me to insert a disc... I read that for the people who have a purchased Sims 3 base game should place the #crack in Origin Games folder NOT in Electronic Arts and it seemed to have worked for others, but when I go into my Origin Games folder, it's completely empty. I am just so confused.

My Date Modification of the #crack is 18/10/2013

And number on line GameVersion = 1.63.5.024002

Did you install the base game via Origin?

I installed it regularly, if that makes sense, without the use of Origin. It popped up on my screen once I put the disc in and then I proceeded with the setup.

Please download and install Teamviewer here: www.teamviewer.com.

After that, give me the ID and password from Teamviewer via private message.

Teamviewer grants me temporary control over your computer, so that I can search for the root of the problem fairly easily.

If you agree, please write a private message.
