Sims 3 Freezes at unofficial game mod warning. [SOLVED]

Post by schmitty8 on Sun 17 Jul 2011, 14:49

Hey,
I downloaded + installed all of the Sims 3 + expansions according to the ultimate fix guide, and when i open the sims launcher and select play, the screen goes black, as it does with the sims, and the 'unofficial game mod' warning pops up. but when i select 'ok', the computer freezes. i can't minimise or anything, i've tried leaving it for 10 minutes, but i end up having to do a forced restart. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you for all the downloads, and thank you in advance for any advice. Very Happy

Hello,

Ah, another strange problem. Do you have any Custom Content / Mods?

Hello,

Ah, that one sounds more familiar. Could you please post a screenshot of the folder where you copied the Generations crack to?

i can't do a screenshot sorry, as I don't know how to do one without a keyboard. don't laugh lol, my son spilt something all over it today, i've been using the on-screen keyboard. but i put it in program files> electronic arts> the sims 3> game> bin. i've figured out how to bypass this error, you open sims directly (not through the launcher) by goung to prog files > elec arts> the sims 3> game> bin> ts3w. it loads the game, but once i get in now, it's asking for the disc. all i have mounted is the 2 base game discs as i didn't know which file to mount for the other games because i'm blonde. sorry about that lol.

Hello,

Sorry, I tried not to laugh when you talked about the keyboard thing.
Anyhow, first of all; there's no need to Mount anything. I'm 99,99% sure that you copied the crack to the wrong folder. Please re-check, you probably copied it to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 Generations\Game\Bin
instead of
C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin


Please tell me the result.

Hello,

There's no base game crack needed. I think you mean the original files.
Here's what you should do at this point; apply this Fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly-must-read
Read the included "# Installation Guide.pdf" VERY CAREFULLY on where to put which files.

//EDIT

Ah ok, please let me know the result!
