I don't know where my launcher is?

Post by brassmonkey1314 on Fri 03 Jan 2014, 23:05

I just finished downloading the base game and most of the expansions as per the instructions on the 'must read' thread. But now that I'm ready to play. I don't know how to start the game. I went to My Computer and clicked the disk drives and that pulled up the launcher but it then gave me a message saying that I didn't have a disc, which I obviously don't. Have I missed something?

Have you installed the crack file for the most recent expansion you have? also make sure your completely up to date. When you select the desktop icon, the launcher should open.

The last crack I installed was for the big fix. I am completely up to date. That's the problem, I don't have a desktop icon. I tried re-installing the patch, twice, but it has errored on me both times.

Go to the game bin in The Sims 3 and create a shortcut of the TS3W file to your desktop, it won't pull up the launcher but you will be able to start the game.

That worked. 

But now, nothing is showing up correctly. I'm at the first screen where I choose a town, and I can see buttons, but no words. When I click a button that has another screen pop up, the text is gone from there as well.
