Hello,

Did you install the game as following:

Open the .rar file you downloaded using only WinRar, which can be downloaded from www.games4theworld.org . (If you use any other software than WinRar, like WinZip or 7-zip, the files will get messed up!)
When you've opened the file using WinRar, select áll the files in it and drag & drop them to a folder on your Desktop. When the extraction is done, close the .rar file and open the folder on your Desktop.
Now, start by reading the included "# Installation Guide.txt" and you should be able to get the game to work yourself.

Yep... Winrar is all I use. I use poweriso for the iso files to mount them. Should I copy the files off the image files? Well I re-downloaded, and checked the .rar file and got no errors, so a bit later I will try the installation again.

Hello,

No, you should keep them as an image during the installation.
Try using Daemon Tools lite. (See our free Mounting Guide on www.games4theworld.org > All our Downloads > free Mounting Guide for more information)

Ok, using daemon tools, seems to be working, Thanks again. Base game is going in. Once all is installed, and I have cracked after the final install, is it ok to let it connect through the firewall or should I block this?

Hello,
There's no harm in unblocking Origin in your firewall, it may even be required to download updates through Origin.
Unblocking the game itself in your firewall serves no purpose as it doesn't go online.

One additional question, hope someone is there to let me know. I downloaded the standalond update for sims 3 the most recent patch

TS3_1.24.3.0120xx_update.exe

Can I just install this update not using the download manager and then crack the game as you instructed. I have everything installed.

Guess being a bit overly cautious, but you gotta know my wife and you would be too.

Also, when I look in the Bib folder there are (3) launchers, should one of these be used, or is it best to just create a shortcut to the TS3 file I placed in there for launching the game and skip the launcher?

Hello,

In order to update the game safely, please use this Fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems (You must have Origin / EADM installed in order to be able to update the game)

The Fix has everything in it: original files, crack, instructions. If you follow all the steps very carefully, there's nothing to worry about.
You should be able to use the launcher without any problems.

Ok,

Just want to go the best rout.

I have followed all your instructions to the letter. I now have everything downloaded and installed all the way to Step 9.

I have installed Origin, actually did this before I had installed anything.

I guess my confusion and or cautiousness, was from the instruction in

Step 9. "Open the game's launcher and update to the latest version. (You need to download and install the EA Download Manager - now called "Origin" - in order to update!)".

I guess was more wanting to verify to go into the bin folder and double click the launcher.exe or start from the Sims 3 desktop shortcut.

Oh and I did install everything just as you instructed, thanks, I had to re-download a couple games, had some CRC errors, but I got them and all went in well, just have to update and crack the game. Oh and I installed Late Night after World Adventures, but before Outdoor Life, as Late Night was not on the list for install order, previously posted, so I hope this is ok also.

As for the ultimate fix, I downloaded and saved the cracked files from the Townlife Stuff/Generations folder, just as instructed. and will copy them into the folder. without actually running the fix...

Hello,

Don't forget where to copy the crack to. (See THIS for help!)

The order isn't really important, but just for the best result, it's recommended to use the order from the "How-to-install" page.
I assume everything is going good so far?

Yes, So far I have installed everything, with no errors once I downloaded the last two expansions I installed. I am just moving the install files to her backup drive, and then I will launch the game and try to update thru the EA download manager. then I will copy and paste the crack files into the bin folder... Will let you know how it goes.

//EDIT

Success!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I installed everything and it is working

Only seem to have lost 1 saved game of hers, so that is not too bad.

Thanks for all the help I really appreciate it.

Mod edit: Problem solved, topic closed.
