Sims 3 Generations/Town life stuff ultimate fix problems. [SOLVED]

Post by pie on Tue 23 Aug 2011, 09:23

First, I would like to thank g4tw for providing these games.

However, I seem to be having a problem while installing the Ultimate fix. When I go to copy the files (not the crack!) into generations or town life, I don't get a 'replace' option for TS3W and TSLHost.dll in generations, or for TS3W in the town life stuff. The files aren't in the bin folder. Should I place the files from the Ultimate fix into the games bin folder anyway, or not mess with it?

I did read the instructions, both here on the forum and the file included with the ultimate fix. I know the crack needs to go in the Sims 3 folders, not Generations/town life/what-have-you. I've tried to find a solution by looking through the forums, but I didn't see anything with an answer to this question.

Thanks.

I've included a screenshot to better explain what I am talking about.

Hello,
The files you speak of also go in the base game bin folder, not into the Generations/Town Life Stuff folder.
Don't forget to delete those files from the Generations/ Town Life Stuff folder if you haven't already.

*re-reads instructions*

Oh, god, I feel stupid now. I could have sworn that I was following the instructions. I'm just going to go hide now.

Thank you for your help.

No, not at all. But, for best result, we recommend you follow this order/instructions: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

I am obviously incompetent. For here I am with more questions.

After trying to update everything like it said in the Ultimate Fix instructions, I got an error that said the update was for the wrong region. When installing, is there a certain region I should have put? I believe I put United States when installing the base game. The launcher also seemed to think I didn't have Town Life stuff installed, when it was the first expansion I installed after the base game.

So, I've uninstalled everything. I'm re-extracting everything with winrar (which I didn't use the first time, but it seemed like everything extracted ok because everything seemed to install properly. I hadn't realized until trying to find solutions that we should use winrar.) And then off to try installing everything again. And maybe this time it will work. *crosses fingers*

Also- I know that when I installed either generations or town life, it updated my Sims 3 to a newer version- so when I tried to install Outdoor Stuff, and followed
the install instructions it said to update... But it would have 'updated' to a previous version, and I needed to uninstall the newer version. So I just ignored that part of the instructions, and it seemed to install fine. But like I said, the update in the launcher didn't install. Would this have had anything to do with it?

Hello,

Well, actually the region error is caused by a change in the registry.
Please go to this location in your registry: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t177-can-t-find-the-sims-3-sku-fix

Double-click on the icon called "SKU" and change its number to "2".
Which number does it show now?

After reinstalling the games, I did not get the region error. (I caused that myself, the first time around. I know now what I did. ^^Wink

Instead, I'm getting an invalid file found when running the update. I followed the fix, so I'm not sure what is wrong. I have not cracked any games.

The thing is that on step 3 u say to install any other expansion but skip the crack on WA.What crack?from the expansion itself?or from the instalation FIX pack ?And one more question.In that FIX pack in the instalation guide it says to replace all the files from there with the corespondent ones.but for WA and Generations the files must be put in the same place.(The SIms 3/Bin).It is correct?or should I just put the files only from generations?because it's the most recent.

//EDIT

And btw...It happened to me exactly the same thing like PIE.I followed the steps but then i received the error with the region and then the invalid file.

//EDIT

I don't know what to do.I installed all the expansions exactly as in the guide.I replaced the files from the Fix and when i try to update-it i receive the same fucking error INVALID FILE.I just don;t know what I;'m doing wrong.

//EDIT

BUt one question...the fix is for the patch 1.24?because this is the patch that to update to.

Please edit your post rather than replying to it if you haven't received any replies yet.

@bianca- WA -does not- go into the same place as generations. WA files go into the world adventure folder.

It's Sims 3, then Generations, then Town Life files that go into Sims 3\Game\bin. So if you put World adventures there, that might be part of the problem.

:.:.:

In other news, I still can't figure out what went wrong. I'm going to re-apply the fix, just in case I messed up, though I don't think I did.

Hello Bianca 29,
I'm reading your message now, and I'll get back to you in a few minutes, please hold on.

//EDIT

The fix is for update 1.24, its always up to date so don't worry about that.
All of the files from the fix have to be placed in their correct folders, please read carefully. Many people get confused by it, the key is to follow the guide to the letter. Even if the instructions don't seem to make sense.

After looking at another topic, and looking at my launcher, it seems that my launcher seems to think that 'Town Life Stuff' is not installed, even though it is. And I think Town Life is needed to get the update.

I tried uninstalling and re-installing it, but that didn't work. I also tried not putting in the Town life file fix (as the launcher said it is not installed). And that did not work. I'm not quite sure what to do.

I thought we weren't supposed to crack anything until we had updated everything?

(But yes, those fix files did go into the Sims 3 bin, not Town life or Generations)
