(MAC) Sims 3 has quit unexpectedly

Post by Nymphet on Mon 24 Nov 2014, 12:09

Noob The Sims 3 plumbob I'm new here.
I have a torrented Sims 3 on my MacBook Pro. The launcher works, Create-A-Sim works, and the town view works. My issue is when I attempt to buy a house and actually go to live mode, the loading screen shows up, the music stops, there is a frozen moment and then the entire game shuts down. Next, a window that says "Sims 3 has quit unexpectedly" shows up, I have all the Problem Details are hidden at the bottom if you'd like to read them. I have no clue what any of it means so if someone can inform me it would be much appreciated. 

Here are my specs:
Mac OS X
Version 10.7.5
Processor 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3

I have more than half of my storage space available.

Here are some steps that I already attempted:
- Play game without CC 
- Clear caches, thumbnails, etc
- Re install everything (I even tried another torrent, both had the same issues)
- Download Wineskin Winery
- Download XQuartz

I did some research on my own, and I am aware that Sims 3 is hardly compatible with Mac. If anyone knows how to help me, I would appreciate it greatly.

Hello,
 Well since you download it from piratebay, I believe the file maybe corrupted. Therefore, I'm unsure if my help because I never associated with the file, other than the games4world. You should download games4world file, and see if that helps.

With games4world, you do not need to associate with winery / cider.

So can I just download it from the all files page? It doesn't say whether the only sims 3 download link is compatible with mac or not.

Please read the guideline on how to install the Mac provided by game4world here!
http://www.games4theworlddownloads.org/Downloads/Guides/Sims_3_Mac_Guide.pdf

Just simply download, and make it into a .dmg ad you will be all set. If you want to add expansion, please refer to the other guide that was provided.

I would also like to remind you not to bump in other threads about your Mac issues please. I just deleted your bump post from here:

So I completed the entire guide, along with installing Sims 3 Town Life expansion pack. I created a DMG for the expansion, used the program asked to extract the files, and I also cracked it with the sims 3 fix for mac. When I double click sims 3 to play, a message pops up saying "an unknown error occurred"

ok so i followed some steps on this forum to fix this issue, and it caused a new one that isn't resolved for mac users.
a box says
"unable to start game
service initialization failed (0x024e4e424f)

//EDIT

Okay so I talked with the lovely LoriliHime for like an hour or more about this issue, and I'm pretty sure we resolved the issue! The sims 3 ultimate fix for mac is not compatible with mac. I sent her a screenshot of the crack folder contents after I download it from both the original link and the mirror link and both contained an .exe file. It would be super rad if someone can send me a link to the mac's ultimate fix that actually works with mac. :~)

Have you download the MAC fix ultimate version??
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

Please read the instruction carefully (that is part of the Ultimate Fix download) and we do need the .exe file to REPLACE the .exe file in the directory.
Therefore, it is compatible because I used this ultimate fix on my Mac.

All you need to do is copy the items in the #Crack Folder and replace the existing in the directory (look at the instruction).

We did manage to get her game working. She will download and install the rest of the expansions that she wants whenever. I also instructed to reapply the ultimate fix after installing to make sure it works properly. It is not always needed but it is always good to be sure it will work.

Oh yes, it is most needed to apply the ultimate fix afterwards , to make sure!
Also make sure to install the expansion in release order! It's very crucial for the mac.
