sims 3 installation errors?

Post by cel on Sun 03 Aug 2014, 21:37

hello i recently downloaded the sims3 game and im having issues installing the base game. ive gotten to the end of the installation almost((?)) and it keeps telling me that specific paths cant be found and insert the correct disk (so i swap from start disk to disk1) this usually happens with sunset valley objectcache and something to do with build0/1?? how do i fix this so i can get the game to install fully. last time i downloaded the games wasnt through iso-ing?? and i had no problem with installing them )-: the installing bar has been loaded fully from what i can tell now for almost 4-5hrs with no progress still. any help would be greatly appreciated.



*after searching through the forums i only found one other person with the same problem im having right now. i closed all my torrent programs and anything else i wasnt using via task manager so i knew they werent running and im still having errors see below

Hello,

If you downloaded the base game from G4TW, you got a .RAR file initially, right ? What did you use to extract the .ISO images from the .RAR file ? You should ALWAYS use WinRAR for that.

Or just try re-extracting the contents of the .RAR (with WinRAR), and re-installing from those newly-extracted .ISOs. Good luck and let me know if that worked !

The mounting software you are using...is it up-to-date ? In some (rare ?) cases, you need to re-download and re-install more recent mounting software, to avoid issues. Also, the next best thing I can suggest is that you re-download the game with a different torrent client. Besides the popular uTorrent, there are also BitComet, Bittorrent, and many others you may want to try.

Other than that, I'm afraid I'm out of explanations...but good luck again !
