Help Installing The Sims 3...again.

Post by miiya1993 on Tue 11 Feb 2014, 03:03

So something happened where I had to do a factory refresh on my computer and now I need to reinstall all of my sims 3 games. Luckily I was able to retrieve all of the files since I saved them. I updated my game to the latest version, applied that crack, applied the cracks to all of the packs that I had before actually installing the packs. I tried to start the game but it asked for a registration code. What do I do?

Hello,
Have you tried the Ultimate Fix?
Since you said "applied the cracks to all of the packs" I would assume you haven't tried the Ultimate Fix yet! Wink
Please re-do steps #3 and 4 in this article:
 http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
Try that and see if it helps.... Smile
If you still have any problems at all NO hesitation PLEASE! Very Happy

It still asks me for the registration code
do I need to remove the cracks or something?

Hello,

Please make sure you haven't overlooked the #crack folder in the fix.

Ok so I applied the crack that was in the base game folder, updated my game to the latest version and applied the ultimate fix crack but when I try to start it, it still asks for the registration code. There are 2 launchers  in my game, Sims3Launcher and Sims3LauncherW does it matter which one I use?

Do you have one of the expansions as mentioned at step 1 on this page?

Ok so I kind of got it working. I can start it up and I've installed Seasons, Generations, University Life, Supernatural and Master Suite Stuff. still having problems with the other downloads though, but I'll download the other expansions to see if that fixes it. Anyway when I open the launcher and start the game, it skips the intro because I have mods installed, which I wanted to see, however, it doesn't show any of my old saves or the towns even though I know they're there.

All of my expansions work now but the New Game button is grayed out, no old saves and it doesn't show any towns.

Hello, Very Happy
When your menu is blank it USUALLY means you applied the ultimate fix incorrectly.
If your game is not updated to latest version do steps #2,3,4 in this article.
And if your game is update to latest version just skip step #2.
That should do it!
Good luck! Wink

Ok so I followed those instructions again but it didn't work. I thought maybe I didn't apply the fix to the expansions so I reapplied it but nope.

Hello,
Do you have at least ONE of the following expansion/stuff packs?
Into the future,Movie Stuff, Island Paradise, University Life, 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff, Seasons, Supernatural, Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry Sweet Treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff, Generations.
If not please download at least one of them.
Re-apply the Ultimate Fix and when your done go to Programfiles(x86)/ElectronicArts/TheSims3/Game/Bin and make a shortcut of TS3W. exe to desktop or wherever you want.
And start the game directly from TS3W. exe!

Hi,
Please make sure you haven't overlooked the #Crack folder in Ultimate Fix. Smile 
You have to copy the content of #Crack folder and paste it in ProgramFiles(x86)/ElectronicArts/TheSims3/Game/Bin.
There is nothing else I can think of right now but the only way you can get it to work is make sure you do every step of this article. Smile 
Good luck! Wink
