Hello,

Just install them, but DO NOT USE any cracks. Just install the games, that's it, nothing else.

Now start the game and it should all work fine.
Please let me know the result here!

Hello,

No not at all, I'll try to help if I can.
Let's see. Are the files you have in .package or .sims3pack format?
Note that you can download the The Sims 3 Store Updates (Updated monthly) here: mediafire.com ?y8uy4gu2y8jqt

If the files are in .package format, follow these instructions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfAox_PivgI

im not shure about what they are but i guess sims3packs are the ones that install them self trough launcher .. so probably my problems are with the package ones..

Hello,
To install .package files, do the following: Go to my documents\Electronis Arts\The Sims 3. Create a new folder and call it Mods, and open that folder. Inside this folder, create another new folder and call it Packages. Now you're almost good to go, you only need the resource.cfg file, you can find it using a google search, place this small file inside your new Mods folder. The packages you download go into the Packages folder you created.
And that's all there is to it! Package files that you copy to my documents\Electronis Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages will show up in game as long as you have the resource file!

Hello,

So... it should go into the Spanish folder. (If your game is in Spanish at the moment)
To prevent confusion, I recommend deleting the English folder.
