Unable to start game: Service initialization failed (0x024e424f) [SOLVED]

Post by kachy on Thu 14 May 2015, 10:27

Hi!
I need help because I can't start my Sims3 after installing Generations. 

I have original base game, after what I installed succesfuly your expansions and packs(in this order): World Adventures, High End Lot Stuff, Ambitions (I've tried to play game after each instalation because I'm adding it slowly) but after I installed Generations no matter how many times I started the game I would get black screen and info service initialization failed.

I followed all steps mentioned in instructions that came with games but something went wrong after Generations. Was I supposed to install Fast Lane Stuff, Late Night and Outdoors before Generations?

Can I fix it somehow without reinstaling all of it?

Game is 1.67 version. I don't know if this matters.

Thanks! I don't have error in Game launcher. 

But I have really stupid question: Where to get patch and should that patch be for Generations or for Sims 3? Facepalm

Hi,

You can use the manual patch provided here. It will update all TS3 and all of the expansion packs.
