Game keeps asking me to insert Disc.

Post by Shinezu on Thu 06 Feb 2014, 09:56

Hello,

New here. Every time I open my launcher and press play .. I always get an error message telling me to insert game disc for Sims 3 Into the Future. I've reapplied the crack, restarted my computer a few times, and I've even tried downloading it, again. I keep getting the same error. 

My current update is 1.62. I'm currently still working out it to see if anything else fixes. 
Please, help when you can.  Help

Hello,
Please download the Manual Patch and update your game by launching it.
Then download the Ultimate Fix again, and copy the files from the #Crack folder to the base game install folder.

I just updated it to 1.67 and had put in the ultimate fix. Restarted laptop. 
Still nothing. Sad

The cracks that come from the games : I reuse them and put them in the game folder for the Sims 3 - Computer folder, not documents. It'll gray out certain ones until I put "Base game" crack back into they all glow away. But then it says Please insert disc for Into the Future WhatDidUJustCallMe?

Hello,

Usually, there's not much behind this "apply the Ultimate fix"-thingy; and experience usually tells me that this error is due to the fix not being correctly applied.


First of all, completely **** down your anti-virus program. Also, if you use the "NRAAS NoCD" mod, please remove it now.

Then, have another look at this (simplified) guide: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

And do the steps from #2 to #4 (if you already downloaded the 1.67 patch, then you don't have to re-download it of course). Please follow these steps as precisely as possible.

Pay attention to step #4 in particular. When you paste the #crack files from the Ultimate fix into the base game location, you also have to OVERWRITE all existing files. This means, just choose "copy and replace" for all files, when you are prompted. This will delete all of the old files, and put in the new ones.

Then make a shortcut to the desktop from the TS3W.exe file. Use that shortcut then to start the game.


Good luck ! Smile

Oh, sorry for the late reply. I fixed it. I just redownloaded Sims into the future. It works, now. Very Happy 

Thank you so much!

That's interesting...re-downloading the game shouldn't be necessary, but OK. And I assume you also did the "steps from #2 to #4" I mentioned ?


Can we help you with anything else then ? Smile
