Explain like I'm five?

Post by Quood on Sat 16 Nov 2013, 22:07

Hi, 

I'm new to this site. I saw a post about it on reddit.com/r/thesims and since then I've been trying to download Generations. My computer skills are basic, so I'm really confused about everything I'm supposed to be doing. I thought I was following the directions correctly, but well I'm lost now. I'm trying to go by http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly But, it's not working out. Any help would be appreciated. 

Thanks, 

Quood

Take a look at this: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t13615-the-sims-3-noobs-guide


Anyway:


1. You should install The Sims 3 Base game first.
2. apply the latest patch: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v163-fix-manual-patch
3. apply the Ultimate Fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems (just the files in #crack) (& the ones in base game folder)


What are your computer specifics anyway?

He means specs as in your processor speed, amount of RAM, system type and graphic card. Your RAM, processor speed and system type can be found in your control panel.

Control Panel > System and Security > System

Are you using Windows 8 or 7? Your processor is nice and you have more than enough RAM, so everything looks fine. You can definitely "run" it.

I'm on Windows 7. I have bought the base game and two other EPs, but when I found out you could download them, I decided to give it a go. I thought I followed the instructions exactly, but I don't seem to have the Generations EP.

Do you still have the Generations torrent? Are you getting any errors?

I thought so. I went to www(dot)games4theworld(dot)org/downloads(dot)html and clicked on The Sims 3: Generations. A file loaded, but it says windows can't open the file.

(Sorry for the annoying link - it won't let new members post them for 7 days)

Ok, that's the problem if you click this link, it will automatically download. After you're done downloading it click the Sims 3 Generations torrent from our site and when you try to download the torrent it might say that the torrent may contain harmful files but ignore it. The files are safe.

Okay. I downloaded utorrent. When I went back to download generations, it downloaded just like before. Is there another step?

Nope, for now let it download which should take about 3 hours depending on how fast your internet connection is.

My pleasure! It's what I'm here for! Please report back when it has finished downloading and we will continue to download Generations!

Ok! Good, seeding means that it's "sharing" or "sending". Seeding does not affect anything with the torrent. Anyways make a new folder on your computer. Name it whatever you wish or Sims 3 Generations. Next, right click the torrent and click "Open containing folder" you should then see the torrent in your "downloads" folder and click the Winrar file that says "Sims 3 Generations". Once you have done that copy and paste EVERYTHING in that winrar folder to the folder you created earlier it will take about 5 minutes for it to copy and paste. After that click the "setup" file and it should start to install, once it asks for the code click the "how to install" notepad file and the code should be in there COPY and paste it. 

Do you even have "Winrar" ? If not do that right now.

sorry for not explaining to much in the first post.
- your computer is good for the sims 3 experience.

- you should know more on what bitttorrent is: [url=en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent]en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent[/url]
now that the download is complete you have to open the .rar file using WinRAR (you can also find it on G4TW if you dont have it) (sims3hope explained the process) during setup it will ask you for a key you can find it in ''Installation guide'' and it will ask you to update the game.
after that open that folder with the name ''#crack'' and copy the files to the base game direction which is in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin
thats all for now.

Yes! I do have Winrar! And, I have all this done now. But, when I open the notepad, the only code is ProductGUID=E6B88BD6-E4B2-4701-A648-************ (without the asterisks). That's too many for the registration code. So.... What do I do?


EDIT: Just kidding!
