No text showing on The Sims 3 Main Menu?! :(

Post by pizzaandpugs on Sat 13 Dec 2014, 15:01

Okay so I installed The Sims 3 base game and the Seasons expansion, as per the guide and I only used downloads from games4theworld..
First time I tried to play the game, everything loaded perfectly, til I got to the part where you choose to start a new game, continue a saved one & choose the town etc.. there's no text! I already downloaded and applied the manual patch and the Ultimate Fix, so I don't know why that happened.. Thinking I must have missed something, I completely uninstalled and deleted everything Sims related, re-downloaded everything and spent hours of careful reading and clicking to make sure I didn't miss out anything on the guide..
Just tried to play the game again and I have the same problem.. I searched the forum and found the solution about regedit, but when I try to navigate to the path, the "sims" folder isn't anywhere to be found in "software". Can anybody help me with this as it's really annoying me now.. I've re-installed TWICE now and I'm still having this problem Sad
Thanks!

Hi there,

First of all, welcome to the Games4theworld Forum!
That problem usually occurs when using an outdated crack.
Can you kindly post a screenshot of the folder where you copied the crack to? (Preferably in "Details" view mode)

Thank you!

Hey,
I used the crack that the guide links to, I'm guessing/hoping thats the right one?
I tried to post a screenshot, but it says the message is too long WhatDidUJustCallMe? But basically it went into This PC > Acer (C:) > Program Files (x86) > Electronic Arts > The Sims 3 > Game > Bin (sorry if that doesnt help aha, it wont let me post a screenshot)

Thanks!

Hello there,

I actually wanted to see the creation dates. Can you give me the creation dates of the TS3W.exe and the TSLHost.dll files?

What "guide" are you referring to exactly?

Hello,

Thank you for your screenshot!
That's what I thought: you are using an outdated crack. Please re-download the latest version of the Ultimate Fix, as described in step 4-5 here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Can you re-apply the 1.67 manual patch first ? And THEN, you only take the folder named #crack, inside the Ultimate fix download. Copy the contents of the folder #crack (TS3W.exe + TSLHost.dll) to the base game location, usually C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

You will get a prompt now. There, please choose COPY AND REPLACE for all two files. After that, the old files will be replaced - then try the game again.

Sorry for the late reply, but are you familiar with "TeamViewer" ? If not, read up on this here:
http://games4theworld.org/contact.html


Then try catching me on the forum's chatbox (at the top of the forum's main page), if you see me online there. I'll then try and assist you with TeamViewer. Smile
