Sims 3 HELP Game not working! Screen freeze! [SOLVED]

Post by ekind on Fri 27 Dec 2013, 19:17

Hey guys! So I've been obsessed with all this Sims 3 stuff and I have downloaded many ep's in addition to the base game by following the instructions on this forum through torrent and they worked perfectly fine after a while I discovered that my launcher would not work. I have Ambitions, Into The Future, Island Paradise, Late Night, Pets, Seasons and the University life already downloaded and I didn't encounter any problems and all were smoothly uploaded. I have also downloaded some custom stuff from other websites. I only played the game once or twice to see if it was properly working or not. Everything was fine. A few weeks ago, I tried to open the game, the icons were seen in the dock but there was no image. (I'm a Mac user) I researched it a bit, but couldn't find any solutions apart from changing the info.plist thing. I've already patched the ultimate fix and manual patch for almost three times now. Still doesn't work. After changing the CedegaGameName to C:\Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin/TS3W.exe the image attached appeared but didn't go any further. I've tried almost any patch available but it didn't seem to do any good. The screen sort of freezes right there. No game, no loading. I really don't know what else to do Sad



I know that you guys are awesome so I'm begging your  Help 
I would appreciate your efforts and valuable suggestions. Thank you so much!

Hello, 

Where was your base game from? Also, are you able to show me a screenshot of your launcher? Smile

Hey,
I'm unable to share the link since i'm a newbie  Embarassed  I downloaded the torrent from thepiratebay.se on games4theworld downloads list (I trusted those because it had the *games4theworld* sign and all the other expansions are from the same site with the same sign with them.)
I can't access the launcher! Most probably because i changed the info.plist document but even before doing that, there was no launcher. The launcher has disappeared!

Hello,

Thanks for the update. Unfortunately the base game from games4theworld is not suitable for Macs.

Firstly, please do a proper uninstall by following this: http://bluebellflora.com/the-sims-3-on-a-mac/how-to-do-a-clean-uninstall-and-reinstall-on-a-mac/

Next, refer to the mac install guide here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t11808-brand-new-how-to-install-the-sims-3-on-mac-os-guide-read-it-here-now-new

A link is included in the mac guide that will lead you to the appropriate base game download.

Finally, simply follow the guide to install your game.

I hope that helps Smile
