do i need the Ultimate Fix? or Manual Patch? [SOLVED]

Post by Calmflipper on Tue 19 Aug 2014, 20:07

i have the sims 3 from a cd. I've got the sims 3 deluxe so the cds are original. now the question is do i need the manual patch? while i was reading in the forum i thought that the manual patch is only for when you download the base game from online or as a torrent. another question, when i downloaded seasons torrent by g4tw, the game started running really slowly. even though with the ambitions it didnt have a problem. i tried some of your methods but none worked. i downloaded the program that's supposed to make games run smoothly but it didnt work also. i also downloaded the ultimate fix even tho i dont know what it does, ive followed the steps. it still was slow. i then uninstalled ambitions bc i dont like it but the game was still slow. so i uninstalled the whole game from my pc and im now downloading it again but without the ambitions so i can download generation also from g4tw. but they asked for an update for the game. i still havent downloaded generations and the game is still updating. do i need the manual patch or ultimate fix? confused


thanks Smile

Hello,

Since you already have some expansion packs installed, yes, we highly recommend using the manual patch, as described in step 2: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
Remember, DO NOT skip any steps if you want your game to work afterwards!

As for the lag, it can be caused by Mods and Custom Content too. If you have any, temporarily remove ALL of them and try again.
You can also try using GameBooster from www.iobit.com/gamebooster.php .
