Into The Future - No Game Disc Found!

Post by veronika_s on Wed 08 Jan 2014, 20:43

Hi!

I had previously installed the base game and all expansions up to and including Showtime, and it was working great. Today I downloaded the latest 5 expansions and followed the guide here on how to install them on macs (created dmg's etc etc). When I first tried to launch I got the "unhandled exception - do you wish to debug" and subsequent crash error. So I followed the ultimate fix, applied the manual patch and then the # Crack. But now, when I try to play from the launcher I get the "Please insert the Sims 3 Future"-error!

I'm so bummed!! Especially since it was working great before! Anyone, what do I do?

EDIT: I realize now that I didn't apply any patches or apply any cracks between the newest installations (except for at the very end of course) - Was I supposed to do that..?

EDIT2: Uninstalled Into the Future. Tried running it with Island Paradise - same result (please insert Island Paradise CD). Reinstalled Into the Future. Did all the steps in Ultimate fix again, aaand: Please insert Into the Future CD. *cries*

EDIT3 aka talking to myself: Clean-uninstalled EVERYTHING, base game, extensions, save games, everything, according to a guide linked in another thread here (so deleted files in preferences etc). Downloaded the base game recommended from this site, supposed to be cracked already? Tried 3 times to update via the launcher (ignoring first 2 prompts), but got an error message while unarchiving, so patched manually. Open launcher, press play and: "Please insert Sims 3 Disc." WHAT. Tried to paste the crack files into Bin (which I shouldn't have to right? But still), and same result. At this point I've actually downloaded sims on my iphone. That frustrated.

Hello,

Unfortunately, I believe the Ultimate Fix would only work if you have installed an expansion before Generations. Also, make sure that you are patched to 1.63

Please do the following steps:

1) Install at least one EP before Generations.
2) Reapply the Ultimate Fix (redownload if you are not sure whether you have the latest one)

Your problem should disappear. I wish you good luck! Smile

Hi! Thank you so much for replying!

I actually tried that. Installing base game, patching manually, then installing world adventures and doing ultimate fix. And same error! The thing is though: I'm not able to update the base game via the launcher. It just quits on me after trying to extract the files without an error message even. Could the manual patch be a problem?

I also tried not patching and then installing world adventures then following ultimate fix but whatever I do I seem to end up with the same error message! Strange, no?

Should I just try again or do you have any ideas what could be wrong? Thank you SO much for your help and time, I really appreciate it! Smile

What about the manual patch? Does it allow you to update to 1.63? Smile

Yup, the manual patch seems to work fine no problem.

//EDIT

Ok so I tried again and wrote down the steps I followed. Hopefully there's an error somewhere!

1: Unzip base game and move to application folder
2: Run manual patch, select base game in applications folder, change permissions
3: Make dmg for world adventures
4: Install world adventures in applications folder, get warning: "base game might be newer"
5: Step 3 of ultimate fix, paste to the base game-Bin folder, though no "replace"-popups happen, just a clean paste
6: Step 4 of ultimate fix, to the world adventures-Bin folder. Still no "replace"-popups
7: Step 13 in the ultimate fix, into the base game-Bin. Only one "replace"-popup on the tslhost file
8: Open launcher. Prompt: "do you want to update?"- NO
9: Refresh updates page, say NO to next update prompt, then click "update now"
10: Launcher restarts. Do you want to patch sims store=LATER
11: Press play: NO GAME DISC FOUND
12: Quit launcher
13: Step 13 of ultimate fix again (2 "replace"-prompts)
14: Open launcher and press play: NO GAME DISC FOUND

Soooooo any thoughts?

Hello, 

Thanks for the screenshot. I think something went wrong during the applying of the Ultimate Fix. Try following these instructions:

HOW TO INSTALL THE SIMS 3 ON A MAC (simplified)


(Please click HERE for detailed instructions!)


* If you have previously installed The Sims 3 on your mac, please do a FULL and CLEAN uninstall before proceeding.

1) Install your base game.
2) *Update your base game to the latest version via the launcher's Game Updates tab. [Current: V1.63]
3) Unzip original Expansion Pack files with Stuffit Expander(Skip Steps 3 & 4 if you have downloaded your EPs in .iso or .dmg)
4) Create .dmg files of the EPs with Disk Utility.
5) Install EPs in order of release.
6) Apply the LATEST Ultimate Fix for Mac. (Use ONLY the two files in the main #Crack folder!)
7) Enjoy your game!

Again, if you are unsure about one of the steps, please view THIS GUIDE for images and detailed instructions!

* If the update fails via the launcher for some reason, please download the manual patch instead HERE.

Sure thing, I'll try again Smile And it should be enough that I install world adventures right, and no other expansions?

Didn't work Sad

Some additional info: When I opened the game after applying the #Crack I was prompted twice about a new update being available and I declined before trying to play. The update looks like this:



When I tried installing last time I installed this update via update now, then applied #Crack again and it still didn't work.

Hello,

Please unclick automatic updates.

Next, click refresh till you see that your version is the most updated.

Redownload and apply the LATEST Ultimate Fix for Mac. (Use ONLY the two files in the main #Crack folder!)

Hi!

It's not the latest version though, as you can see! Should I click update now? Like I said, last time I tried I did update now, close, apply #Crack and it didn't work!

Hello,

Yes I can see, and from what I can see (look at the bottom left of your launcher) it is already stated as updated to 1.63.

Do try out the steps. Refresh your launcher and it should say you are already updated. If you are afraid, simply download the manual patch and have it patch over again, followrd by the Ultimate fix again Smile

Good luck!

Thank you for all your help!

I'm refreshing and actually it keeps saying software update is available! Should I still manual patch + #crack? Smile

Alright. No worries..

While you did your reinstall, did you happen to do a full and clean uninstall according to the guide I posted above?

Hmm. Do you mind trying it out with another Expansion Pack instead? Just wondering if it could be an issue with your expansion pack..

Sure Smile Done it so many times by now it's such a short process haha. Ambitions?

EDIT: Same exact result with ambitions I'm afraid.

Just to make sure though: You mean to only apply the #Crack to the Base game Bin folder, and ignore the "Ambitions"-folder in the ultimate fix altogether, right?

Honestly speaking, I have no clue as well. Sad

I wonder if it would work if you clean uninstalled everything, deleted all the files you own, and redownload everything. Otherwise I'm pretty much stumped for now Sad
