Starting base game problem- no game disk found

Post by Robinfeather on Thu 12 Dec 2013, 15:59

Hello, 

I'm trying to install and play the Sims 3 on my Macbook Air, but have come across a problem. I have followed the mac guide to downloading the Sims 3, and everything worked perfectly, until I tried to start the game using the launcher. Then a pop-up saying "No game disk inserted! Please insert the Sims 3 game disc before proceeding." appeared. I have not installed any expansion packs or stuff packs. 

Any help would be appreciated. ^^

Hello,

It means you didn't crack your game Smile Where did you get your base game?

The base game I used is the one linked in the mac guide on piratebay, named "The Sims 3 (Mac, cracked)". Sorry, I can't post links yet. :/

Hello,

It's one of the few base game versions which works on macs without problem. But it looks like you patched your game from the launcher? Wink

By doing so, now your game needs crack for the new version. And you need the apply Ultimate Fix. But before that, you need to download or install any new Expansion Packs, up from Generation to be able to use Ultimate Fix.

Did you download any Expansion Packs?

Nope, but I'm currently torrenting one (it's going to take a while). So all I have to do is install at least one expansion pack up from Generations and apply the Ultimate Fix, right? 


If so, thanks for all the help, you're super awesome. Very Happy I'll rely again on this forum if I come across any other problems. Thank you very much.

Hi again! 

The game works fine now. Very Happy I installed University life and used the Ultimate fix. However, I came across a snag which I solved myself, if I followed the instructions on how to crack the game using the Sims 3 Mac Guide, instead of the Installation Guide in the Ultimate Fix, a pop-up saying "Unhandled page fault on read access to 0xbeab8ac4 at address 0x7c47106c. Do you wish to debug?" appeared. However, after following the Installation Guide in the Ultimate Fix, the game works fine now. I thought maybe it would be helpful for future downloaders by stating this. Super excited to start playing!

Also, thank you Phoebe, you were really very helpful. Very Happy I appreciate you using your own time to help others. ^^

I am glad to hear that your game works now! Smile And thanks for letting me know that fact, we wouldn't want anyone have that error so I'll read the Mac guide and make some changes.

You're welcome! We're are here to help, so please let us know if you need anything again Smile

Happy simming!  The Sims Plumbob 1
