World Adventures Installation

Post by SedaP on Thu 30 Oct 2014, 04:33

Hey there,

I was just wondering if you absolutely must use the games for the world Sims 3 Base Game install in order to use the World Adventures install?

I had the base game on CD already, so I went ahead and installed it. Then I got all the expansion packs I wanted from gamesfortheworld, but World Adventures won't install (I don't remember what the error box said, its been a while). I'm hoping there's a way to bypass this, as I've been playing the game so I don't want to lose the saved games I have.

Unless someone knows of a way to "store" my saved games until I re-download the game using gamesfortheworld instead of my Sims 3 CD?

Hi there, and welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Smile

No, you can safely install World Adventures even if you don't have the G4TW's base game. I installed it just fine, and my base game is from Origin.

We could try to help you if you told us exactly what is the error message you are getting during the installation. You don't need to uninstall the base game you already have for that.

And yes, you can backup your saves by copying the Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Saves to somewhere else, as all of your saves are stored in this folder. Wink

Error Message:

The setup has detected that the regional install code for The Sims 3 is different then what this expansion requires.

This product requires The Sims 3 to have the same regional code in order to be installed

I see. Please, open the Installation Guide inside the World Adventures installation folder and follow only the Step 2 of it. If you don't have it anymore, I'll copy it here:

Now open the Start menu. Type 'regedit' in the search box and press [ENTER]. Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sims\The Sims 3   and double-click on 'SKU'. Change the shown
number to 2 and press 'OK'. Close the Register Editor.

This should fix your issue. Please, let us know how it goes. Good luck! Very Happy

I don't see the folder you're talking about in the regedit

See if you can find it in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Sims\The Sims 3 then. Smile

No, there's no need to download it again. Just try installing it again. It shouldn't give you the error anymore. Wink

Please, remember that there's no need to use that #Crack folders anymore. The correct installation guide for The Sims 3 can be found here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Take a look at the Step 1, where it says: "(You may skip all the "# Crack" folders. You DO NOT need to use any "# Crack" folders!)".

I'm still waiting for the patch to download. So far, so good though.

//EDIT

Now it's asking for the Into The Future game disk

That probably means that the Ultimate Fix wasn't applied correctly. Keep in mind that you only need to use the #Crack folder inside the Ultimate Fix (ignore the rest of the folders). Copy the two files inside and paste them to Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Make sure to choose Copy and Replace when prompted.

Please, let us know how it goes. Good luck! Very Happy
