PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP! URGENT - THE SIMS 3 WA

Post by liacpaa on Sat 12 Apr 2014, 01:09

Hey,


So, I've read all your posts on how to install correctly the sims 3, however, I have one question. HOW DO I INSTALL WORLD ADVENTURES?? I've read the Installation Guide, bu I don't get the 3rd point:

"Change the 'C:\Program Files\Sims 3' to: 
'C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3' before Installing the Patch! (If you have
Installed The Sims 3 in an other language, it'll be something else. Like when you Installed
The Game in Dutch, it'll be: 'C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\De Sims 3', so be sure you 
check what you have, otherwise it won't work!"

Hello,

I've split your post. Wink

As for your issue, I'm not 100% sure if that problem is outdated, buzt what language do you want to install The Sims 3 in ? In English - or Portuguese ? (seeing that you're from Portugal). If you want to install The Sims 3 in English, then there's no big deal behind it. Just install The Sims 3 in English, and then go on with the other expansions.

If you install the game in Portuguese though then name of the folder in C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts will be Os Sims 3. You need to change the folder's name to The Sims 3 after installing the base game. And after you changed the folder's name, go on with installing the other expansions.

Also, refer to this guide here, too:

Good luck, and please report back to us if you have more issues with that ! Smile

Hey Carlos!

Thank you for explaining, after all it was a simple thing, but I think that it wasn't much clear what to do, or at least for me.. Razz

I'll try intalling them all correctly now and hope that everything goes well... Otherwise I know there's always some "magician" ready to help! Ahahahahah

Thank you for replying! Smile

You are very welcome ! So did you successfully install "World Adventures" now ? And did renaming the folder help you ? Also, do check out this topic here too:

So, unfortunately I couldn't do it... I installed the base game in english and portuguese, I changed the name as you advised, and even if in an "alien" language I managed to instal the patch, but.... only to, when doing step 5, at the end it said "file not found".
Can I ask if even using the WA from another uploader will I manage to use your manual patch and ultimate fix? Sorry for the question, but maybe it's the quickest way for me to get the game running.

I'm now not sure what's happening in your installation. Step 5 ? I assume you mean step 4, the application of the Ultimate fix ? If so, how exactly did you try to apply that fix ? I honestly don't think this is related to "World Adventures" from Games4TheWorld, but let's see.

The way it's supposed to be installed is this:

1) Install base game


2) Apply LATEST manual patch


3) Install all expansions


4) Re-apply latest manual patch


5) Install Ultimate fix (= step #4 in the "must read"-guide I posted above, please re-read that guide).


And there shouldn't be a big deal about this, normally. If you really can't get it done, you may download and install "TeamViewer":

http://www.teamviewer.com/download/TeamViewerQS.exe


And then get in touch with me via PM, so that we can arrange a "TeamViewer session", in which I temporarily take control of your computer, and have a look at that myself. If you don't want that though, then it's OK too, of course. Smile  But then we'll have to do this via the forum, and I'm really unsure what is happening in your installation.

You may even include some screenshots of the issues you are getting.
