Towns do not show up in launcher after installing late night

Post by PaigeBrielle on Thu 28 Aug 2014, 00:51

I have downloaded all my sims games from you guys and in the late night installation guide it says to drag and drop the files in the corresponding folders to the bin in each of the games it lists.
Ex: folder 1- late night - drag and drop all files in this folder to C:\program files (x86)electronic arts\the sims 3 late night\game\bin

The second says to drag them to the base game bin, third to world adventures(which I didn't dl due to issues all the time) fourth to high end loft, fifth to ambitions and sixth to fast lane stuff. This is where I think the problem started with the towns not showing up when creating a new game. I have also installed all the other expansion packs

My question is this what files do I need to replace or get rid of to make this work? What file do I replace them with? I have not applied the ultimate fix either.

Thank you!

Hi,

It appears you are reading how to crack the game from the folders/notepad files found within the torrents!  We strongly advise not to do this, as it will wreak havoc on your game and consequently, break it (and then twist, mangle and burn it).

Please do not uninstall any of your games, as they are not permanently broken!  Follow the steps here to the 'T', not skipping or skimping whatsoever.  Download the Ultimate Fix and Manual Patch.  Use the Manual Patch - EVEN IF THE GAME CLAIMS IT'S ALREADY UP-TO-DATE - and then apply the Ultimate Fix to the base-game's \bin\ folder.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Thank you! It worked! I ran into another issue with my custom content I had dl before applying the patch and fix. Now my cc isn't showing up in my game. It shows that it was installed on the installed content tab.

Hello,

EDIT:\\

You may want to try turning CC on and off before going into any technical fixes.

Go to the Launcher and SELECT "Run without Custom Content". You can access this by going to Installed Content.
Run the Game.
Close the game and reopen the launcher, then turn CC back on by DELSELECTING "Run without Custom Content".

Thanks,

I know its a pain but could you create a new topic for this new problem? Its so we can see the new issue and it organises the threads.
Happy to help. It sounds like either a CC/Mod error, cache or something another member should be able to help with.

Thanks,

There is no need to do so. The OP can ask questions as long as it's him/her that created the thread.
