Sims 3 Can't Update/Launcher has stopper working/Patch links not working

Post by sumospandas on Fri 14 Mar 2014, 14:52

I always get the same problem whenever I try to download the Sims 3 and I can't ever seem to get past it. Okay, so my base game is always "Razor1911 Final MAXSPEED" downloaded from thepiratebay. After installing it and replacing the proper files, it works. Problem? The version is 1.0.615, aka the oldest. And now if I try to update it, I can't find a good patch, and the links you've provided aren't working for me. 

Every time, the ea one goes "oops! google chrome could not connect to akamai.cdn.ea.com". The mega one says that there's a temporary error, and never recovers. 

Say, if I do find a patch, like the crack provided from your ultimate fix from step 11, the launcher doesn't open and a pop-up says "sims 3 launcher has stopped working". 

Also, you said that we must have an expansion pack installed for the ultimate fix/to install sims 3 correctly, but how can I install one of those expansion packs if it's not updated? I've tried to do it, and as I thought, it says my game needs to be updated.

 I don't even know what to keep as a title for this, because I'm not even sure what's wrong. So... I guess you could provide me with different links to a patch? ...and also tell me the solution to the "sims 3 launcher has stopper working" problem?   Thanks!

Hello,

As for the MEGA-link, read up on this post here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870p100-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v167-fix-manual-patch#114792

Maybe it can help you. And as for the other link, can you try again later ? If it still doesn't work, you might have (unintentionally) screwed around your hosts file, which, if it contains the "appropriate" entries, will block you from entering particular sites. Read up on my tips in this older topic here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t13831-unable-to-download-patch-157-solved

Many game/software crackers recommend to modify that hosts file I mentioned in that topic, in order to prevent your computer from "reaching" certain sites/servers, so that games/software don't get blacklisted. Also, modifying that file is often done during maintenance of websites...but enough of that for now. Razz

If you don't feel confident enough to modify that file yourself, just back it up to a safe place, and then DELETE or move the file out of its original location. After that, try again. Or use a different computer if you can.

That's it for now - good luck !
