just some questions in which i couldnt figure out.

Post by sseurekkisenpai on Sat 06 Sep 2014, 18:40

ive recently started learning how to torrent. im not having many problems that i cant solve, but i want to ask because i cant seem to find anything to answer my questions. 

1.) i have the base game downloaded from the disc so when downloading late night, that should be fine? cause it doesnt involve any cracks right? but i should follow the directions when downloading the other games first and not apply cracks until the directions say so, right? sorry if my question is confusing. im not sure how to word it.

2.) custom content can still be downloading into the game right? i know i lose online functions but i can still use sim3packs and packages and install them through the download manager in the start up. i assume. i havent gotten far enough yet to starting to download cc. but this question was just to double check.

Hello there, and welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Smile

Regarding your questions:
1) I'm sorry, but I didn't really understand the question. You have the base game from a disc, but where are you getting Late Night from? Is it in a Disc too, is it from Origin, or you got it from here? If you downloaded it from here, you can follow the guide and you shouldn't have any problems:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
Keep in mind that you should install first at least one of the expansions mentioned in the first step, before continuing with the rest. If the Late Night expansion is from a Disc or Origin, there shouldn't have any problems installing it normally, and then following the guide for the rest of the expansions.

2) Yes, you can still download Custom Content and Store Content into the game. You can get the Store Content from our downloads server, here:
http://games4theworlddownloads.org/ts3/thesims3.html
As I understand it, if you have at least one part of the game registered you can still access the Online functions normally. And, as you said before, you have the Base Game from a Disc, the Online part should work.
Regarding the installation, yes, you can still use the Download Manager from the Launcher. But I recommend you install CCMagic, as it will help a lot with managing what you are installing and doing it correctly.

If you have any other questions, don't doubt to come back! Good luck! Wink

this may be a little bit of a dumb question. but in the installation guide for WA it says to download from Crack folder 1 but if im downloading Late night would that mean i shouldnt download it? 

here is the text from the LN instal guid

"-4. Install WA.* DO NOT APPLY THE CRACKS!..."

And the text from the WA guide

"3. Open the '# Crack' file in this .rar file and open 'Crack 1'. Run the 'sims3patch.exe' and
follow on screen instructions. Change the 'C:\Program Files\Sims 3' to: 
'C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3' before Installing the Patch! (If you have
Installed The Sims 3 in an other language, it'll be something else. Like when you Installed
The Game in Dutch, it'll be: 'C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\De Sims 3', so be sure you 
check what you have, otherwise it won't work!"

so im asking, would installing that be considered the patch? is there maybe an article on here to help clarify this? Do you understand what im asking? Ermahgerd

Yes, I understand.

You shouldn't install the games using the guides that are in the torrents. Please just use this guide:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

If you do it carefully you should not encounter any problems! Good luck! Very Happy

These should be the last questions as i am just asking them in order of what im confused about while im reading the guide. pls forgive me for not being able to understand.

im just a bit dumb since im very new at this.in the guide the guide, where i am following the directions doesnt explain in detail. like once iver downloaded the torrent and once theyve been "made"(for lack of a better term) into .rar files, what do i click to start to install the expansions packs? like there are a lot of things and im not sure what to click once i open that .rar file.

then in the next step it says redownload the manual patch. i already have it downloaded so i dont need to redownload it right?

then once i have downloaded it and get to the ultimate fix for any cracks before generations, should i copy and replace? or should i copy and replace for only the latest expansions pack? (if that makes sense) like to i have to copy and replace every single one of those files before generations if im downloading all those packs? im trying to word it right but i hope you understand what im saying. if you understood me earlier then you dont have to read after this because i will explain it again. Say i downloaded WA, high end loft stuff, then a bunch after generations. do i need to keep re-replacing those files? like re replace it 3 times since WA and highendloftstuff have different cracks then any after generations?

Don't worry! You can ask as many questions as you want. That's what we're here for Wink

After you download all of the torrents, you will be left with some .rar files. To extract them, you need a program called WinRAR. You simply need to right click the .rar and click the option "Extract to [FOLDER NAME]", and the files should be left in there.
To install each expansion pack, you need to double click the Sims3EPXXSetup.exe (or Sims3SPXXSetup.exe, if it's a Stuff Pack) where XX are the numbers of each Expansion/Stuff Pack. When you double click them they should start installing. When they are done, you will be done installing them. You don't need to click anything else, just continue to the next expansion pack or to the Step 2.

If you are sure you downloaded the latest version of the Manual Patch, no, you don't need to re-download it. It's always advised because you should install always the newest version. Make sure that it's called TS3_1.67.2.0240xx_update.exe or you would have to download it again... Sorry!
Also, be sure to download the PC version of it (if you are in PC, that's what I'm assuming).

When you get to the Ultimate Fix, if you already updated the game to the latest version, the only files needed are the ones that are inside the #Crack folder. It's the last instruction in the PDF that comes with the Ultimate Fix. You need to copy and replace the .dll and .exe found inside of it to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin
If you want to follow every step of the guide (there's no need to), you only need to do it after you installed all of the expansions. There's no need to keep re-doing it every time you install a new one.

I hope I understood your questions correctly! If you need anything else, don't doubt to come back! Good luck. Very Happy

If you right click the .rar and choose "Extract to The Sims 3 - Generations" (for example), it will create a Folder automatically. But you can also make a folder yourself (properly labeled, of course; you don't want to mix up each expansion pack Wink) and extract the files in there.

It's up to you. Smile

No problem!
As I understand, the Worlds need to be installed through the Launcher, as CCMagic doesn't support them.
Please try installing them by using the launcher to see if they work! Smile

Although I haven't really explored CCMagic that much. If you want a guide for it you can find one here:
http://modthesims.info/d/461888

I hope I understood what you meant. If not, I apologize. Please, let us know how it goes! Good luck! Very Happy
