How I got Sims 3 and Expansions to work on MAC

Post by sammyjojames on Wed 24 Aug 2011, 02:19

To be clear I am running mac os x snow leopard. I did have lion but couldn't get anything to work so I went back. I own the base game. I downloaded the no cd crack from somewhere. I applied the crack to the base game I then installed the EPs in order the EPs came from games4theworld. I didnt do SPs. So World Adventures, Ambitions, Late Night, and Generations. I used the Serial numbers in the instructions but did not apply any cracks!!! Then after all of them were installed I used the Mac fix opened the crack folder open the town life/generations folder put the crack in there in the base game bin replacing the ones currently in there. Thats it... When I first pull it up it gives me a notice to take off any mods. I just click no and finish loading it.

so did you follow the whole mac fix installation guide? or did you ONLY do the crack?

As I am very new to mac I am not sure how to check which version of OS you have I do know though Lion is the newer one and it just came out in june (I think). So your probably running snow leopard unless you know youve bought a new os lately.



And I think stuff packs should be fine my only recommendation is installing them in order. I know i found the order somewhere in the sims 3 . com forums.
