Sims 3 loading issues

Post by ula_q44 on Sat 22 Feb 2014, 06:52

Hello everyone, I have recently downloaded sims 3 and the pets one using the pirate bay and torrent and powerISO. 


Everything was working fine until I downloaded items and sims from thesimsresource.com and I downloaded all kinds of things which probably was alot for the program to handle and when i was launching the game it took for ever to load and then worked fine, but when I tried to open the house hold creator it won't load and i tried restarting the game and even deleting some of the items that i downloaded it still won't work. So i tried restarting my laptop, which lead to a bigger issue. Now the whole game won't work (i have not turned off my laptop since i downloaded the game). Now the sims 3 would tell me  “Disc Authorization Failure. We are unable to verify that your disc is a valid copy of The Sims 3. Please contact customer support.” 




I need a solution for both problem ASAP !  The Sims Plumbob 1 
Your help is much appreciated <3  Help 




Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Looks like an interesting problem, but first of all, please (re-) do the steps from #2 to #4 from this little guide here (do these steps as precisely as possible and don't skip anything !)

After you've done that, don't start the game with the launcher. Instead, go to your base game location, which is usually in C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Or when your base game was bought from Origin, then
C:\Program files(x86)\Origin games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

Look for the TS3W.exe file and make a shortcut to the desktop from it. Use that shortcut then to start the game.

Let me know if this worked for you ! Smile  Good luck.
