SIMS 3, ALL PACKS & EXPANSIONS INSTALLED, BUT WON'T WORK, EXTREMELY FRUSTRATED. [SOLVED]

Post by kazzarian on Wed 24 Aug 2011, 20:09

Ok people, i tried downloading SIMS 3 COMPLETE which is a G4TW release, but wasn't getting much speed so download some packs from her and there.......

Anyways, till this morning i had successfully installed all the packs n expansions and the game was running like a charm, BUT IT WAS THE GENERATIONS and not TOWN LIFE STUFF.

For some reason, even after installing town life stuff, the launcher wont show it at the bottom.
I figured out it was because i wasn't applying the patch for Town life stuff cuz i had already applied a patch to base game as i had updated and so the game was running fine, and so i did not copy the crack files from town life stuff and left it thinking that i already have the latest patch.

Anyways, i applied the crack and the launcher finally showed it at the bottom, now when i would click the play button, it would show me a working pointer and then stop responding. i waited.......and waited.........i left my PC like that and after 30 minnutes also it was same, showing me busy pointer and not responding.


I came to this site, read ALL THE INSTRUCTIONS.

Checked out the thread ULTIMATE FIX. FOLLOWED EACH N EVERY STEP.

STILL, the problem persists.

Note: In the PDF where it says, go to updates and install the update. I did that, but i guess i am already on the latest version which the launcher shows: 9.0.73.012001

Here are the screenshots:

When launcher is opened:


And, after clicking play button, and clicking again when it stops responding:


I am really sorry, if i have violated any of the rules, its just that i am very much frustrated and has been looking for he solution since late afternoon and its 11:40PM here.

Hello,

Could you please send me a screenshot of the folder where you copied the Generations and a screenshot of where you copied the Town Life Stuff original files from in the Fix?

yeah, the fix, i downloaded that from here.

i was downloading SIMS 3 Complete(40GB), but since i wasn't getting good speed, so i downloaded from different places, i remember, outdoor living was from mediafire links, other were all torrents.

Anyways, is there anything i am missing?
is there anything i did wrong ?
do u see anything wrong in the screenshots ? some extra files, or some unwanted files ?

Hi there,

Yeah well, the "Reloaded" file shouldn't be there obviously.
Anyhow, "Complete" packs usually cause even more problems.
I can try to see what I can do for you via TeamViewer, but if that didn't work, I'm afraid the files are modified and you'll need to download the Games4theworld versions.
Please contact me via the Forums chatbox.
