Can't start the game :(

Post by hvost on Sat 22 Feb 2014, 23:27

Hi, I'm just going to describe what I already did.
First, I downloaded base game from torrent and blocked it in Firewall. Everything worked perfectly. After I decided to download Island paradise. In setup it was saying that i need to upgrade my basegame to install Island Paradise.
Ok, i downloaded the patch 1.66 and started from the launcher. After pressing the play button in the Launcher it started  and finished. But the game icon was in the taskbar, so i clicked on it and it started again. But when it finished downloading, the main menu, where it suppose to say all the cities, was empty. So I couldn't play.
I thought, that the patch is wrong and tryed 1.67, than my launcher stopped working...
After i reinstall all the games many times, installed generations, followed your instructions. But my launcher doesn'twork...

Guys, u r my last hope! Help, please!!!

Hello,

Probably you didn't apply the latest "Ultimate fix" (correctly). Please, have another look at this small guide and do the steps from #2 to #4 (don't skip anything):

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly


Please double-click on the TS3W.exe from the base game location (usually C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin). Or make a shortcut to the desktop from that file. Instead of using the launcher, use this shortcut for starting the game !

Re-start the game then. Good luck !


P.S. blocking The Sims 3 in the firewall doesn't have any benefit or effect, on anything Wink
