ultimate fix not working!! HELP !! [SOLVED]

Post by jamaicantoes on Tue 02 Aug 2011, 21:00

THIS IS GOING TO BE A LONG EXPLANATION BUT I REEEALLLY NEED HELP

I currently have every sims 3 expansion except fast lane stuff. The game has stopped loading my saved games about a month ago (I don't know why). I figured since town life stuff came out maybe i can use the ultimate fix & the new 1.24 update to help my problem. I'm not sure if this is where i went wrong but while i was installing town life stuff it told me i needed to update something but i dont remember what it was. I thought it was the 1.24 update but after i installed the game and followed the instructions to the ultimate crack, it kept telling me invalid file found and won't allow me to update to 1.24!! I've read multiple different post and nothing has helped. I decided to redo the ultimate fix download for the 6th time (no kidding) and follow EVERYTHING in the EXACT order/steps but now the launcher says "there was an error during startup.please see the log for more details" and just disappears. I really don't want to uninstall anything so can someone help me and tell me what i'm doing wrong.

Hello,
Did you manage to patch the game that last time you applied the fix? Are you able to start the game without the launcher at all?
Problems regarding the "invalid file" error are usually caused by misplaced original files, you wont be able to patch the game if their placement is incorrect. Start up errors can be caused by a misplaced crack, can you post a screenshot of the folder you copied the crack to?

I am not able to open the game at all (with or without the launcher) it keeps saying "unable to start". i haven't applied the crack for town life stuff yet if that is what your asking.

Thank you so much for your patience (sorry i took so long) but i applied the #ultimate fix again. I followed steps 1-11 VERY CAREFULLY and even copied the location of each fix from the installation guide into my window explorer . The game/launcher won't start up at all anymore.




That is what it keeps saying

That is where I put the town life fix which is the last thing I put in this folder.

I haven't applied the #crack because I was instructed to do that last but I have applied all the fixes to every expansion that I have.

Hello,

Ok, this is what I recommend at this stage:

1. Completely uninstall The Sims 3 base game + Town Life Stuff.
2. Restart your PC.
3. Reinstall The Sims 3 from www.games4theworld.org .
4. Reinstall Town Life Stuff from www.games4theworld.org .
5. Apply the Ultimate Fix.
6. See if it works now.
