Problems installing Sims 3 Pets - my game doesn't work anymore? [SOLVED]

Post by Anasthasiya on Thu 26 Dec 2013, 08:48

I installed successfully both Sims 3 base game and Sims 3 Showtime and it worked well. Now I wanted to install a Sims 3 Pets (Fixed), and it caused me allot of problems. All games are downloaded from Torrent.

First time I installed it, I did everything just like it says in the download txt, and it said there is compatibility problem. Okay, I tried to reinstall it.

Next time I reinstalled it (I had to uninstall Sims 3 Pets and do it all over again), right before I would copy #Crack files into original game folder, the Launcher opened saying I should update the base game. So I did and closed it. Then I finished as it said in the download txt, and it seemed like everything went well. But it didn't. Everytime I wanted to start the game (any of them), it opened me a Launcher, and I don't want Launcher, because when I tried to use it with the Sims 3, it entirely blocked my game (since it's not original version) and since then I try to avoid it as much as I can. 

I then deleted the Launcher from my desktop and instead created shortcut for TS3EP05.exe of the game (Pets).  When I tried to open the game, it won't launch at all. I also tried to open other games like Showtime or basic version, and either won't open at all. 
Maybe I shouldn't delete a Launcher at all, but had not had any other option, since it wouldn't launch it anyway (because it only launches original games). When I was installing Showtime (from another source), I had to actually delete launched version on desktop so I could launch it at all. Or maybe there is some compatibility problem, although I had read on the Sims 3 forum that updates are from now on only for base game and not for expansion packs, so there should not be any compatibility problems anymore. I'm not sure of that.

What should I do? Does anybody have any idea on how to fix that kind of problem? I would like to play the game and it won't open anymore!

Thank you!

Hello,

Please try using the LATEST manual patch (version 1.63) and then the LATEST Ultimate fix too. This means, do the steps from 2 to 4 here:

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

After you've done step #4, make a shortcut to the desktop from that TS3W.exe file. Use this TS3W.exe shortcut to start the game from now on. Wink 

Good luck and let me know if that worked !

Well, what I did... I uninstalled it all, and then installed all the expansions at once, and followed the steps in Ultimate Fix. So then game started working normally and I didn't have any problems since then. Thank you! Smile


Mod edit: good to hear that ! Smile  I'm closing the topic now - if you have any other issues, feel free to open a new topic.
