[SOLVED] having trouble with the sims university expansion pack :

Post by mochizouu on Fri 17 Jan 2014, 05:23

Hi, I am having trouble with the Sims University expansion pack :\ . Firstly I have the original purchased Sims base game and I am trying to install Sims University. I downloaded the expansion pack off thepiratebay from games4theworld and installed the game using utorrent then extracted it with winrar. I then followed the installation guide which told me to copy the crack from Sims University and paste it in the bin folder from the base game. I went into games which led me to a bin but it also had another bin folder (if that made sense). Anyway i just pasted the crack in the first bin folder and it came up with a window asking if i wanted to replace the following, which i did. In the end i loaded the game and it asked if i wanted to run the crack i had pasted and then crashed, etc. At the moment i am currently downloading the manual patch and the ultimate fix, and the instructions say to copy and paste the exe. from the crack folder from the ultimate fix into the base game bin but there is only a folder named mod.

Point is, I am confused and I have absolutely no idea what I am doing. If anyone could help that would be wonderful D: .
Also sorry for the long paragraph, just thought the detail could maybe help C:

Paste the 2 files from the #crack folder from the Ultimate Fix into your game directory.
If you're using Origin then paste the 2 files to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin - If you're not using Origin then it'll be C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin

I don't believe so... try without pasting the patch. Isn't the manual patch an .exe? You just need to open it up and it patches your game Smile

Ahh I see what you're doing now.. When you open the launcher, don't download the latest update, you need the 1.63 Patch to play (until the games4theworld team has made a fix for the new patch 1.66) You then need to download the Ultimate Fix, not the temp version.

Manual Patch for 1.63: Here
Ultimate Fix: Here (Don't worry about the fact it says "Not Working")

P.S Try not to double post Smile - Just Edit a post next time.

If it's working then I would just leave it as it is ahaha! Basically, because EA have just released a new patch, the crack needs updating so that it can work with the new patch, just keep checking on here to see when it'll be fixed. When it is, feel free to update your game through the launcher. But like I said, i'd definitely leave it at the moment if it's working.

I'm glad I could help you, a moderator will be able to mark the thread as Solved Very Happy

Are you using Origin? If not then just use that crack folder that you mentioned. The one with the mod and package folders inside (It's the one that has the NRaas mod inside right?) Just place the Mod folder with all it's contents inside your Sims 3 folder. That should fix it!

I've downloaded the first link called 'akamai' from the link you've given me for the manual patch. As for the ultimate fix, in the beginning i downloaded the last one which wasn't recommended since the first two had not working. I've already download the first one which u mentioned for the ultimate fix, should i replace the crack files and delete the old one (the mod)? C:

The one i'm on about should have 2 files inside #crack, TS3W.exe and TSLHost.dll. Paste these 2 inside the Sims 3 Folder (not the mods folder) It'll ask you if you want to replace the files, click yes. The second one shouldn't be needed tbh. They say "Not Working" in reference to the 1.66 Patch.

just replaced the files, no wonder, its because i used the wrong ultimate fix v.v , anyway one more thing, if i were to download more expansion packs, i wouldn't need to download the manual patch and ultimate fix again right? i would just need to update the ultimate patch every now and then? also if i download more expansion packs do i need to paste the cracks from their file to the base game bin? because i think the instructions online said you don't need to? so im not sure :3

If you download more EP's, just install them and then that's it. If for some reason it says you need to insert the disc, just copy and paste them 2 files to the base game again. You won't need to download the manual patch or the ultimate fix again Smile

Just keep your eye on this site for when the Ultimate Fix is ready for 1.66, when it is, update your game through the launcher and then just use the new fix.
