Sims 3 Ultimate Collection Help!

Post by ricansim499 on Sun 01 Mar 2015, 07:47

So I downloaded the Sims 3 Ultimate Collection and I'm having a problem with downloading expansions. I already have the base game downloaded. I tried downloading the Sims 3 Pets expansion. I copied the TS3W.exe and the TSLHost.dll to the game bin. When I try to launch the game through the launcher it says the Sims 3 Pets disc could not be found. Can someone please help me with this. I don't know what I could be doing wrong..

Hello ricansim and welcome,


Did you make sure to patch the base game with the manual patch inside the #crack-folder, of the Complete Collection ? Is your base game up-to-date (version 1.67) ?

Also, where exactly did you copy + paste the TS3W.exe and TSLHost.dll to ? And did you make sure to choose "copy and replace for all files" ?

Please paste the two files into C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and REPLACE all existing files (choose "copy and replace"). Good luck for now and keep us posted !

I copied the TS3W.exe and TSLHost.dll to the right place but when I go to launch the game it says could not find disc to sims 3 pets please insert disc. Does it matter that I installed the base game to my D drive? I don't have that much space on my c drive. I need step by step help Sad

Hello again,


http://games4theworld.org/contact.html


Read up on the "TeamViewer" information there, and then try and catch me on the forum's chatbox (usually on weekends), and then I will try and help you via TeamViewer.

Other than that, there really isn't much left for me to say about this. From my experience though, it's usually better if you install everything on the C: drive at first. And then also patch the game + apply the Ultimate fix. AFTER that, you may try to move the game folders elsewhere and edit the registry entries. But this is a dubious procedure; and lots of things can go wrong if you don't know what to do.

For now, please make sure again that you actually applied the Ultimate fix correctly. Smile  If that doesn't work, please try on your own to un-install everything that is related to Sims 3, and then re-boot the computer.

After which you free up some space on your C: drive, and then install Sims 3 + Pets there. The reason I ask you to do this is because that TeamViewer session would be too long if I need to do all of that myself (too). Good luck for now !
