Sims won't launch after extension download. [SOLVED]

Post by Inuzak on Sat 27 Jun 2015, 10:03

I've got the Origin's disk brought Sims 3 along with torrented Pets 3 which have always worked fine... however after downloading your Supernatural expansion torrent the game won't start!  Embarrassing...:

Download went fine, followed the instructions, but now when I click sims it opens the launcher, I click the blue start circle, the launcher disappears and the game doesn't start.

The only thing I did in the download that I could pinpoint was when the instructions told me to put the TS3W.exe application into the original Sims game bin folder, and when it asked whether to copy or replace I hit replace... but if they were identical files I don't think there could have been an impact?

Thank you!

ETA: I downloaded the Ultimate Fix, the play button at least started responding again telling me it couldn't find the supernatural expansion disk.. I then did your crack again and the disk authentication error has stopped but it is back to not responding/launching game.

Hello and welcome to the forum,


Just to make sure..please re-do the steps #2, #4 and #5 here, and make sure to do them properly:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly


Note that if your base game is from Origin, you need to copy & paste the crack files (TS3W.exe + TSLhost.dll) into the location C:\Program files(x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

Good luck !
