'The license server is down' and other problems

Post by AmeliaUnicorn on Mon 13 Apr 2015, 00:45

Hello I'm new here. . First of all: thank you for the effort you put in providing us with games and helping with problems.

Now onto my issues. A few days ago I downloaded your torrent - the one with The Sims 3 with the complete expansion pack collection. I started installation with the base game, as instructed. I followed the rules precisely but the game didn't work. I later read on the forum that this problem can be caused by only having base game installed so I tried to install an expansion pack (Ambitions). I followed the instructions again but it did not work. I gave up and uninstalled the whole thing. But since TS3 is my favourite game ever, I decided to try to install it again today. I followed the instructions in the video and was very careful but my game still doesn't work. I'm pretty sure I put all the cracks in correct folder. I also downloaded and applied the fix but it still doesn't work. 

The launcher looks normal but when I press the buttom for starting the game, I get message to insert the code. I do that but it keeps popping up and then, after some time, I get this message; 'the license server is down. please wait a few minutes and try again.' 

I checked this awesome forum for solutions and tried a bunch of things but nothing seems to work. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong (I'm quite a noob in computer stuff). 

My computer specs meet the game requirements so that's not the problem.

I'm very sorry if I sound like a total noob and I know these questions have been asked many times before, but I'm really kinda desperate here.

Thanks for the help and have a nice day  Tea 5

Welcome to the forum and sorry for the late reply,


The only crack that you need is mentioned in this guide here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly


Please re-do the steps #2, #4 and #5 there. Again, the ONLY crack that you need is mentioned in step #5. You do NOT need to do anything else besides these few step. Out of interest...do you have the Sims 3 base game registered to your Origin account ?

I am having the same issue. I have tried reinstalling it all over again, downloaded the fix update and even put the crack in the right folder which is indeed game/bin. I haven't touched any of the add ons. I have just been trying to get the basic game working. But all I'm left with on after trying to hit play is EA asking for the code, which I do put in. I use the code in the instructions, the ones it tells me to use. But then it just keeps popping back up asking for the code again and again. Sometimes it will just say Licence server is down and try again later and it all shuts down. I would really appreciate help. I've been lurking around the forums but none of what I've read seems to help with this problem at hand other then this post but the only advice on this topic is "try the step again". Well I have and it still hasn't helped. Can anyone help or am I going to be redirected to the "MUST READ" page with no answers for me.

Hello,

Please install an expansion or stuff pack. Any of the newer packs (Generations or newer) will do, and then copy the crack from the fix into the game/bin.
