About installing

Post by xHers on Tue 25 Feb 2014, 23:06

This is on piratebay, Ambitions:

1. Completely uninstall The Sims 3 + All expansions.
2. Restart your PC.
3. Reinstall The Sims 3. DO NOT APPLY THE CRACKS!
4. Install WA.* DO NOT APPLY THE CRACKS!
5. Install HELS.* DO NOT APPLY THE CRACKS!
6. Install Ambitions. DO NOT APPLY THE CRACKS!
7. Install Fast Lane Stuff.* DO NOT APPLY THE CRACKS!
8. Update the launcher to the latest version.
9. Apply these updated Cracks: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/fixes-f18/the-sims-3-latest-cracks-download-t656.htm
10. The Game should work fine now.
What i wanna know is, what is "WA", HELS, and lastly, after installing ambitions and fast lane stuff like it says above, do i just install the rest of the expansions they way the guides say or does there have to be a specific way? Just making sure i don't screw up this time cause last time i tried installing Island paradise something went terribly wrong with the game... xD

Helper Edit: I strongly suggest you to choose an appropriate font color because the one you have used makes your post hard to read.

Thank you very much ^^

1 more question;

1. Install The Sims 3 and all expansions you like, but install AT LEAST one of the following expansions: 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.* (You may skip all the "# Crack" folders. You DO NOT need to use any "# Crack" folders!) If you get an update error when trying to install any of the expansions, do step 2 first and then continue with step 1 again. Base game installation video tutorial

2. After you've installed all the games you want, RE-DOWNLOAD and RE-APPLY this manual patch: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v167-fix-manual-patch (The Mac version of the manual patch can be downloaded HERE)


Ambitions,  High end loft stuff, Showtime, Outdoor living stuff,  Into the future, Island paradise, Master suite stuff, Movie stuff, Seasons, Supernatural and University life are the expansions i have on now(nothing installed). Say i install everything the way it says here, can i normally install the other expansions i'll download later or do i have to un-install anything? c:

Hello, Very Happy
You can install whatever you want later on, there's no need to uninstall, just make sure you do the steps of that article properly! Smile 
Hope that was the answer to your question cause that's what I assumed! Embarassed
Good luck! Wink

Hello,

Well i hope i'm doing this correct, this is what i did so far lol;


Installed Sims 3 the way i was supposed to, put Island paradise on and now i'll be installing the rest of the games i have. After the install of all games is complete, i'll re-download the manual patch and use it again(do i actually have to? I downloaded it yesterday and used it today to update the game to the latest patch lol), and after that i'll do the Ultimate fix thingy. Correct or am i doing something wrong? xD


P.S sorry for teh font color LOL it was automatic, didn't change it xD

You can install the expansions in any order and then (re-)download and the (re-)apply the manual patch.

After that (re-)download and (re-)apply the Ultimate Fix as per instructions.

Good luck and let us know if you need any further assistance!

Hello there,

No bumping, please.
Where exactly did you get the .Sims3Pack file from?
Did it install successfully on your Launcher or did you get an error like "Update your Game"? (Something like that)

This is it, the DL link is in the description. I downloaded it, double clicked on it, it opened the launcher, said there's a "Store patch" avaiable, asked if i wanna patch it, first i clicked no cause i just wanted to go to Downloads and install the house,(when i clicked no, some script error also popped up) but the house wasn't there. Later i opened it again, installed the store patch but the house still wasn't there lol. Now when i open the house file nothing happens, the launcher opens but ther's nothing there xD

P.s i don't think there's a prob with the file, this guy's got loads of houses for download and they seem to work for others c:

//EDIT


Sorry for double posting... Installed all the expansions now, game works fine but the file still won't install. Here's the error i get:



I've also gotten this(which is new, i've only been getting ^ till now c:):

Hello and sorry for the delay,


This error in the screenshot can be ignored; and it doesn't have anything to do with your issue with the .sims3pack. Smile 


Next, in My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3, delete the following stuff:



-CASPartCache.package
-compositorCache.package
-scriptCache.package
-simCompositorCache.package
-socialCache.package
-plus the contents of the folders "WorldCaches" & "Thumbnails"





The compositorCache.package is the most important one to delete here, but make sure to delete all other files mentioned too ! Then, try again installing the house with the launcher.


If that doesn't help either, and if you really want that house, then look at this (more radical) solution here: 


http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t2208-sims3pack-installed-world-inaccessible-or-wont-install-fix





Keep in mind that after doing that "solution", you'll basically have to re-install all your.sims3packs. If it's really worth it, is another question though. Feel free to ask if you need more assistance !


P.S. please click on the "edit"-button of your post, in order to add stuff to your original message. Do NOT post multiple times in a row, please.
