Store bought base game causing problems.

Post by clarecolleen on Thu 04 Aug 2011, 23:28

Hey so I bought my sims 3 base game in store, and its caused me nothingbut problems trying to make it work with the torrented expansions. but basically ive uninstalled all of the expansions because they wouldnt work even with all the right cracks and patches applied. ive read the "must read installation order must read" thing, but my question is what are the different steps to take if the base game is store bought? as in installation order , cracks, updates etc.. ? it's really hard to find info on that anywhere unless im just not looking hard enough. i appreciate the help, thanks

Hello,
You can follow the exact same steps for a store bought base game as you would for a pirated version. Don't forget to use the ultimate fix.
If you still experience problems, it can be helpful to download G4TW base game.
Please let us know if you run into any problems along the way.

That's probably even better advice, never miss an update or new release for The Sims 3 again.
