A problem hide another. Completely desperate...

Post by etitiennep on Mon 23 Jun 2014, 18:40

Hey,

so, i was enjoying the sims 3 on Origin ( real copy of the game ) and today i wanted to play a little further with the "World adventures" expansion. I downloaded the addon, installed it but cant make it work. So, after searching the net for solutions, i found your guide  and followed it perfectly ( i installed "Master suite" just for that ).

So, now i have the base game, world advetures and master suite installed, the game load, no error message of any kind but my main menu was totally blank... After searching that, i found this thread where someone had the same problem ( wanted to post the link but i can't. The name of the thread iThe Sims 3 - Empty Start up screen. [SOLVED]

Apparently, re-applying the patch in the guide worked, so i did it. I re-applyied the patch for version 1.67.2 even if it was already installed. And, indeed, that fixed the problem because my saves were in the menu and the menu was ok. BUT, now the game ( in the menu ) says that the CD of the game is missing.... He ask me to use the master suite CD.

I supose it's because now that i applyed a patch, the crack was overwrited. But if i reput the crack, the first problem with the blank menu is here again ! So, i have 2 different problems and solving one bring up the other one !

I'm desperate and i dont know what to do now... 
Can someone help ?

PS : Sorry for my english, i'm french Sad

Hello,

You probably didn't apply the correct crack. You ALWAYS have to make sure to use the latest available patch and the latest availalbe crack too. So if you carefully re-do the steps from #2 to #4 here, your game should work then:

Basically you can add more expansions, at any time. Just make sure that AFTER you finshed installing new games, that you re-do these steps from #2 to #4. Smile  Just let me know if you need more help with anything - I will leave the topic open.
