Game isn't working

Post by inestorres1010 on Sun 24 May 2015, 18:34

Hey, so today I downloaded some new expansions packs and I (tried) to crack them and I think I followed everything right. However, when I clicked to open the game, it says the sims 3 isn't working and it just gave me the option to shut it down or Windows would look in the internet for me. I tried to take the items that I added in the Bin folder, but it didn't work. 'm stuck now, since I can't play the game. What do I do? Thanks already.

Welcome to the forum and sorry for the belated reply,


You probably used one of the cracks that came along with the expansions you downloaded. But these cracks are all outdated. You need to re-do the steps #2, #4 and #5 from here, and your game should work fine then:

Good luck !

You're welcome, Smile  but at the time the expansions were released, the included cracks were of course "new". But after the next expansion came out, the crack from the previous one became outdated...

Beyond that, cracking TS3 shouldn't be a big deal, if you follow the guide I linked to before.
