problem installing the fix in the sims 3. [SOLVED]

Post by nicolas2021994 on Sun 17 Aug 2014, 14:32

hi, 
I've followed all the steps but my game still doesn't work :/ . once the charging part is done, it tells me to create a new town (I lost my towns ...  ) and there's nothing I can do . Plus all my game is up to date (as it was said in the tutorial). Can someone help me ? I'm lost right now.

PS : I applied the fix as it was said in the tutorial . I ALSO FOLLOWED  the instructions inside the Ultimate fix .pdf. But I saw in another post that it was not needed to follow these instructions. so what do I do to step back and get rid of what I did wrong.

I tried that http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t15765-how-to-recover-saves but it still doesn't work and the menu box is totally empty. 
//EDIT 
I think I used the wrong part of the ultimate fix, which I pasted in the different expansions' files. How can I get back the original files? :/

Hello and welcome,


Please keep all you have to say in one post. You can edit it if you want to.
This does not matter, just apply again the files from the #Crack folder.
Also, try this guide (I hope this is your problem): http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t859-the-sims-3-text-balloons-not-showing-missing-fix

My problem is exactly this one : "
Just installed Into the future today, did exactly what the guide told me to do, got crack up and everything. The problem is when i start the game, a pop up shows saying my expansion is not an official one, prompting me to either quit the game or continue. Once i click continue the game will continue to load but when i get to the neighbourhood everything is empty, including the menu to quit. The only way i have to get out is to force crash on it. I tried the ultimate fix but when i start game it says no disk is on. If i re-install crack provided with the "Into the Future" expansion the neighbourhood problem persists. Please tell me what i'm doing wrong and how to fix it! ". However, once I noticed i did wrong, I followed again steps 2 to 4 and it still doesn't work. What should i do ? I bought VIP, generations and downloaded seasons and into the future. The problem is that I can't update the game after patching since I already updated it :/. I already put the #crack files in the bin folder

Ok, did the guide help you?
Please make sure your game is up to date (other wise use the Manual Patch).
Then download again the latest Ultimate Fix, and copy the files from the #Crack folder to your base game install folder.

This should help.

Yes my game is up to date : When I refresh the update window nothing changes. Do I have to patch the game again ? Maybe I used the wrong patch. Where can I get the latest one ? (I used the one in the step by Step guide). Thanks for your help

Do it again with the #Crack files only.
If you need, we can use TeamViewer.

Look here: http://www.teamviewer.com/en/index.aspx
It enables me to take control of your PC for a while, for the time of the session.

Oh wait, you are on Mac?
//MOVED
Well then did you use the Mac version of the Fix?
And no, TeamViewer is useless, I cannot help you with Mac...

but I have team viewer for mac. Yes I downloaded the mac version :/. I think the problem is that my version 1.67.2 is too recent because this patch http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t3597-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v167-fix-manual-patch is for 1.67. What do you think ?

I'm sure you're much better than me Smile that would help me so much ! the only thing which is different is the bin folder location. Application -> sims 3 -> open the package -> contents > resources > transgaming > c drive > program files > Electronic ARts >the sims 3 > Game > Bin

Normally, just the Fix: files from the #Crack folder.
Do not use the cracks from the torrents, they are out of date.
