Post by Pixxie on Mon 11 Aug 2014, 20:44

Hello.

Please help, i really need this too work.

Oh , also, my game is 100% up to date but it wont let me install custom content is says that i need to have everything up to date to be able to install.

Hello,

Are you sure you followed the instructions fully?
Did you apply the manual patch then the ultimate fix? The files in the Crack folder are most important to the game working but the manual patch is best.

I would really recommend using the manual patch then the ultimate fix if you haven't.

If you have and still have this problem, try following this video guide:

Also may I ask where did you get your games from?

Thanks,
