"Unknown error" The Sims 3

Post by inico on Thu 19 Dec 2013, 04:34

Hi everyone! I know it's a little bit late and you will probably read this post in a lot of hours:
Two days ago I downloaded The Sims 3 and every EP's that are available on the Games4theworld website, and I followed exactly the rules for installing the game. In fact the installations are not my problem: my problem is that when, after I install the base game and generations, I upload the game to 1.63 with the manual patch and copy the content of the CRACK folder (the one in the FIX) in the Base game folder, I obtain a message saying that "an unknown error occurred".
What can I do? Am I doing something wrong with the installation? Or maybe with the uploading and patching?

By the way, I have an early MacBook Pro Retina 15", with 8 Gb of RAM 1600 MHz DDR3, 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7, Nvidia GeForce GT 650M 1024 Mb and 256 Gb of memory.

Sorry for my english, I'm not a mother tongue!

Have a nice day and I hope you will hep me with this problem!

Hello,

Did you download your base game from game4theworld? Because the base game here is not for Macs.

Please read this: http://www.games4theworlddownloads.org/Downloads/Guides/Sims_3_Mac_Guide.pdf

In the guide, there is a download link for the base game. Please try that instead Smile

Also, you need to uninstall properly before you install the new base game. Read this: http://bluebellflora.com/the-sims-3-on-a-mac/how-to-do-a-clean-uninstall-and-reinstall-on-a-mac/

Let me know if this helps you Smile

Hi...
Something went wrong: I did everything as the guide says, but after Ambitions it stopped updating the games, I thought that wash't important so I continued with the installation. Even if I have installed "Into the Future" the launcher says the last expansion that I installed is "Island Paradise"! I copied the crack into the Bin folder, but when I try to start the game this is what I obtain:

Unable to start game

Service initialization failed (0x024e424f)

and then:

Unhandled exception 0x80000003 at address 0x0058d546
Do you wish to debug it? Y/N

Also if I stay in the main launcher for more than 20 seconds a message show up saying than I'm playing a "non final, unauthorized copy of the game"

Please help me! I think I'm going to destroy this f*king Mac!

Hey!
I patched again the game and everything was fine until 10 minutes ago, when I changed the screen resolution and it stopped working again. I don't know why but the game seems to start but I can't see anything, it just says on the desktop
