Can't start game/won't work properly

Post by anika.kuss on Thu 12 Mar 2015, 22:29

I already had most of the expansion packs installed (some downloaded, some bought) and after applying the ultimate fix it all worked properly.
Suddenly I started getting a message when starting the launcher: script error, the object won't support "easy slider" (??????)
Then, when I started the game it said I had something unofficial installed and I'd better update/delete it or it would harm the game. Regardless, I could start the game but it really didn't work... I can't select a town (the names don't show up), my previous family doesn't show...
Even after updating the fix it didn't work. I uninstalled the game, deleted all the CC, etc. Re-installed the base game and seasons (from disc) and it worked fine (except for the script error which was still showing up), then I downloaded and installed "into the future", applied the ultimate fix --> got an error message that the disc was missing. installed the #crack, same as before: unofficial changes blabla game doesn't work. 

now what do I do??

Welcome to the Forum!

Try renaming the "Sims 3" folder inside of your Documents to something else, then restart the game and see if the error persists.

Please let's know after.

Hi! Sorry for my delay!

Please, follow all the steps on the guide below very closely, since the error you are talking about means that your crack didn't "take in", probably because you didn't overwrite your game files (at Program Files folder) with the Ultimate Fix.

Let's know how it turned out, so we can give you a better assistance, and have a happy simming!

Is it necessary to download the base game and the expansion packs when I already have them on disc?

No, it isn't. You can just follow the ultimate fix steps (you can find a detailed step by step tutorial HERE) and replace the necessary files AFTER installing everything. That should fix the "no disk" error.

About the script error on the launcher, it's an issue that seems to be happening with (almost) everybody, you just ignore it and you will be fine, since it should not affect your game play.

Please let us know if you got your problem solved or if you need further assistance.
