Problem with Store updates 1-26 (Sims 3). [SOLVED]

Post by GuidoZebra on Wed 10 Aug 2011, 07:19

Hello, so I downloaded the the store pack, read the installation.txt and took all the individual files and moved them to documents/EA/The sims3/downloads after that I loaded the launcher and went to downloads, they were all there, Then I hit select all and pressed install, after it was done it all said success, I then went to play the game and when I checked none of the content was on the game, Help please.

EDIT: I went to the launcher and reinstalled them and then i closed the launcher to see if that would help, When I re-opened the launcher in the downloads page all the content was set back to Not Installed. It is like the game installs them and then instantly uninstalls them. Also I never got the warning about the non compatible content mods.

Hello,
You can try installing the content manually in the way I described to the other poster in this post.
Its the best idea I've got, but maybe there's a different answer.

You could always try downloading the sims3pack files directly from the 4shared. I'm the one who manages the .sims3pack files while I simply pass on the .package files to admin to upload with his torrent.

I haven't had any problems with installing the store updates with the sims3pack files I uploaded to 4shared.

You could give that a try and tell me whether that helped or not.

You should be able to just double click the files too and it would open the launcher and then install automatically.

Alright well somehow it works now, i just re-installed them 3 times from the downloads page. The only thing I did different on the third try is logging in to my EA account, but surely that could not have been the problem could it?

//EDIT

Okay well at least I thought it was fixed, I went back to play more sims and when I checked the downloads page none of the content said installed. I am so confused.

//EDIT

False alarm the launcher was telling me the content was not installed but in the game the content shows up, weird.

I was just about to post the same thing. I just reinstalled everything to replace my other content with all G4TW uploads and my launcher wasn't showing my installed content either but everything did show up in game, except for my own custom made world, but I'm trying to figure that one out.
Good that its working for you too, I'll lock the topic.
