Blank Menu

Post by Bihem on Wed 05 Feb 2014, 22:30

Ive never encountered this before. Theres no option to select a town nor are there any menu options. I have the base, LN, GEN (CD) and the last 4 eps (torrented) which I updated 1.66 prior to cracking. I tried the ultimate fix; it didn't work. Im also getting the "unofficial modification" notice. I honestly don't know what to do. Im think its the Into the Future ep i download from here. 

Any help would be great.

Hi, Very Happy 
In the blank menu situation there are most commonly 2 ways that might have gone wrong:
1. You used the outdated crack
2. You applied the ultimate fix incorrectly Smile
 So please try doing steps 2, 3 and 4 in this article:

If that STILL doesn't work just let us know please! Smile
Good luck!

Hello, Smile
So I'm pretty sure your game is from Origin right? (just double-checking)
If your game by any chance is from Steam the cracks WON'T work.....
In situations like this I totally ran out of ideas to give but let's wait to see what others say.... Facepalm

There not on origin either, Im not really sure what to do. I did alittle reseach and I think it may involve the 1.66 patch, does it get fixed in 1.67?

EDIT - No steam either.

Hello,
If you DON'T have the manual patch that updates your game please get it here and just run it and let it update to latest version (1.67):

I think the ultimate fix only works with the latest version! Smile

Hi there, update your game to version 1.67 then copy the files of the crack folder of ultimate fix to C:Programmefiles(X86)/electronicarts/thesims3/game/bin

Hello,
I think you meant C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin, right?
If I'm wrong correct me but I don't want to make confusions for anyone....
