Quick clarification about cracks and expansions please :)

Post by Sakura67 on Thu 26 Dec 2013, 11:19

Hi guys first of all Merry Christmas Smile ! Thanks for all the work you are doing for us. I've been trying to download the game and the expansions last year but probably because i did not follow your guide thoroughly my game ended up bugging and i gave up on the sims Sad

So i want to make sure that this time i do it correctly. 99% of the guide is pretty straightforward for me I just wanted to make sure that I understand the step 4 as below :


4. Open the "# Crack" folder in the Ultimate Fix and drag & drop the .exe and .dll file in there to exactly:C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin   and choose "Copy and Replace" on the pop-up that appears, telling you the files already exist in that folder. 
(If you downloaded and installed your base game via Origin, the crack goes into this folder instead: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin )
Ultimate Fix video tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TrRrF5ysPa8

So assuming i have all the expansions, does it mean that : 

A) I only need to use the crack and crack the base game and not worry about cracking the other expansions ?

B) I need to repeat this step for all the expansions ?

From the instructions i would say A but from the video it seems like its more B…

Thanks in advance for helping a  Noob  Razz

I install base game, patch it, crack it and after that I install every expansion or stuff pack I want.

Hello,

It is fine to just use the crack for the base game and not worry about cracking the other expansions.

IF, for some reason it doesn't work, there is a guide that comes with the Ultimate Fix. Just follow that and you'll be good to go Smile

Happy Holidays! Your appreciation is heartwarming for all of us Wink
