Can't start the game

Post by Drago on Sat 22 Feb 2014, 22:39

Hi everyone, so i recently got back to the sims 3 after a long break, and decided to download the sims 3 into the future.
Now when i opened up my launcher before the download was done, it said that there's a 1.67 patch, ignored that and left the launcher open, along with the download...
Now i come back, and see origin open, and the patch download done..
I tried opening the game after, it said "no disk inserted blablabla" 
So i go to the forums and foolishly install the ultimate fix, witheout really reading much about it... 
when i start the game now, it says "you have unofficial modifications" when i click continue, after the loading, the game stops working and crashes. 
So i said "maybe installing the newer expansion pack would make it work!" well no, i installed into the future, still didn't work, unofficial modifications. 

now i m kindly asking for your help to help me fix the game again, as i really want to play it. 
Should i download and apply the manual fix? Can someone tell me what to do exactly? 
All replies would be much appreciated as i really need your help.

Regards,
Drago

P.S: Expansion packs i have: World adventures,ambitions,pets, showtime, island paradise, supernatural, university and recently into the future.

Hello, Smile
A small question before I start saying anything:
Is your base game from here or Origin or is it a disc?
So here's what you need to do:
1. Get the manual patch from here and run it (double-click on it) and let it update your game to latest version (vr. 1.67).
2. Get the Ultimate Fix from here.
3. In Ultimate Fix go to #Crack folder, and copy the content of that folder and paste it in Programfiles(x86)/ElectronicArts/TheSims3/Game/Bin
BUT if you got your base game from Origin then paste the content in:
Programfiles(x86)/OriginGames/TheSims3/Game/Bin
4. Open your game to see if it works! Very Happy 

Hope that answers your question!
Good luck! Wink

Thank you for taking your time to reply to me
My base game came from a disc, obviously a cracked one Razz 
But all my other expansion packs came from Games4theworld and they worked fine.
I m gonna start downloading both of these, and will update you about whether it works or not.
