How does one install multiple EP's (Re-applying cracks)

Post by myhatrules on Sun 17 Aug 2014, 06:21

I can't find any threads on re-applying cracks. I've downloaded the ultimate fix (the one with all of the different files for the EP's) and I've installed Supernatural (no problems). If I'm going to install another EP, how do I re-apply the crack? DO I re-apply the crack? Because the other crack files are for older EP's. Does that final crack (the one for everything after generations) work for all EP's? Thank you to anyone who can help or redirect me Smile.

(just copying and paste what I wrote long time ago)
--I figured out how to make the sims work + updating + installing the other expansions via games4world--

-UPDATE FIRST!- If done, ignore these steps.
1. Download this torrent (ignore.. lol)
2. Download games4world Ultimate Fix (make sure it's up to date)
3. Update the sims 3 via Launcher (when it ask you to update, cancel it and then force update it)
4. Follow the instruction in the Ultimate Fix
--if having trouble--
-Go to the #Crack Folder
- Copy the two files
-Paste the 2 files in the destination folder in the instruction guide.

--Congratz! you just update your sims! It should work and you will have no problem with 'no cd" message…


How to install other expansions:
-------------------------------------
/ make sure install the expansion in order!!/

1. Follow the guide in games4world converting it into the .dmg
2. Install the expansions
3. Use the #Crack that was provided in the expansions folder that was part of the download
4. Open Launcher (Check if the expansion was successfully installed) if not, try to reinstall.
5. Close Launcher
6. Now use the crack in the #Crack folder in the Ultimate Fix you download from Games4world.
7. Done! Very Happy Happy playing!

So yes.. I advise to re-apply the final ultimate fix crack again, after you successfully install the EP.

I'm using a base game that i purchased from Amazon, so it doesn't require a CD. With that bit of information, what would you say I should do now? Also, do you mean I should install the expansions in order of when they came out? I have World Adventures, Town Life Stuff, Late Night, Ambitions, Generations, Supernatural, and Master Suite Stuff. Do I install them like

1. World Adventures
2. Ambitions
3. Late Night 
4. Generations and so forth?

Yup, you can google all the release date for each EP, that's how each EP properly work without error.
Anyways, back to your crack question, just apply the crack like normal (as stated in the instruction) after you successfully install EACH EP.
-more specifically use the crack in the "#Crack" folder.
If you are still unclear, let me know.

After I install all of them, if I wanted to go back and install another, then what do I do? Do I uninstall all of the EP's and SP's?

If you're installing another EP out of order, then you do need to unistall, and reinstall in correct order. However, if the EP release date is after you latest EP installed, you do not need to uninstall anything. You can simply install normally(instruction I gave), and apply the ultimate fix crack.

Do I need to uninstall ALL EP's, or just up until the one I want to install. Say, I'm installed up till supernatural, and I want to install pets. Do I uninstall all others?

Hello,


I hope I am not too late.
No need to uninstall anything. Just go with the install of the new expansion.
Then make sure your game is up to date. Download the latest Ultimate Fix and copy the files from the #Crack folder.
That should do it!

Ok, So I installed my desired packs, but after installing Town Life, everything went buggy. It won't show any other EP's on the icon list on the bottom, and it won't let me start my game. The downloads and installed content folder are all buggy too.

Hm, did you install in order or out of order ?

In my experience, when I try to install out of order, it doesn't work for me like what you described. Um, did you follow "how to install other expansion"? I experiment it before, that the EP icons won't show, because I didn't use the crack that provided in the download. When I used the crack, it successfully appear at the bottom of the list. When I saw the icon appear, then I used the Ultimate fix crack (so replacing the previous crack).

- this is my personal experience when I try to install the expansions on the mac after 12930394 times attempts. Haha

I made sure to install them ALL in order of when they came out. I did World Adventures, Ambitions, Late Night, Generations, Town life, Master Suite, and Supernatural. Only after Town Life did it start acting buggy. Is my base game messed up now?

Hm, I'm not sure. Maybe Town Life is corrupted? So if you uninstall Town Life, does it work fine?

--EDIT!
Wait, I think it's Supernatural is probably causing the problem? I don't have that EP cause I remember having problem installing it.

It was only after Town Life that the problem started showing. Sad I'm afraid that uninstalling it won't help, and I'll have to re install my game again.

I'm assuming that Town Life maybe corrupted.. Hm, sorry I can't really help you as much. D:

I scanned all of the files with ClamXav to make sure they didn't have viruses. I've had this problem before, but I thought that it was because I installed them out of order. Now that I've installed them in order, I have no clue Sad

Perhaps you should install  (The Sims 3 Complete (Eng - Mac OS X) on piratesbay?
I installed this file, which has most of the expansion installed already (stopped at Showtime). After showtime, I continue to install other expansions with the guide I provided. It took me couple of years to figure out how to install other expansions. Haha.

Make sure you backup your /Documents/ Electronic Arts / The Sims 3 folder! So you can replace your saved content, cc , and other junk and replace it later on when you successfully install everthing.

Do you suggest that I start over? As in, uninstall my base game and the EP's along with it, and re install everything BUT Town Life? (Also, admins, if you're reading this, can you check the Town Life thing to see if there's a bug in it?)

Well if you want to, I'm just suggesting my method that worked for me. By downloading the (The Sims 3 Complete (Eng - Mac OS X) on piratesbay. This download has Town Life included! Since, the download has successfully cracked with base game and all the expansion up to Showtime. You don't have to crack anything, but you do need to update it (follow my guide), since it's really outdated. After the update, it would be easier to for you install the other EP as normal.

SOrry if you have uninstlal and reinstall again~ It's a really tedious process for us mac users. >:

Currently, everything is going OK. I haven't installed Town Life, and everything is cool. But if I were to install EP's later, do I install them (I might get UL and seasons later) and then re apply the crack from the #Crack folder or apply the "everything after and including yada yada" first and then the #Crack?

Going to copy paste again. Haha
How to install other expansions:
-------------------------------------

1. Follow the guide in games4world converting it into the .dmg
2. Install the expansions
3. Use the #Crack that was provided in the expansions folder that was part of the download. (crack that came in the download)
4. Open Launcher (Check if the expansion was successfully installed /see if icon is listed/) if not, try to reinstall.
5. Close Launcher
6. Now use the crack in the #Crack folder in the Ultimate Fix you download from Games4world.
7. Done! Very Happy Happy playing!

Note, I did not install the crack in "everything after....." (if you're referring in the Ultimate fix)

OK, new problem. I've installed everything, but I didn't use the cracks that came IN the dmg files. I used the cracks in the Ultimate Fix folder. Also, I'm stuck on the black screen of death.

Yeah that's the problem. That's why I specially state the crack in the dmg file. >_<
