Can't Update Sims 3. [SOLVED]

Post by Texan21 on Sat 08 Oct 2011, 17:59

I downloaded Town Life from your torrent and I don't know how to "install" because of it's format. But the launcher works. I followed the Installation that was included in the "Ultimate Fix" and I get to the installation of the update and the game says "Files have been modified, please re-install." Here's the log for all of the errors and types of errors. What have I done wrong?

I am on a Mac so I don't know how I would install your version of Town Life because of the ".exe" file.

MOD EDIT: Moved to the right section.

When you download Town Life, or any other expansion pack for that matter, you have to use Stuffit Expander to expand the .Zip files. After it's expanded to a separate folder (usually with the same name), open Disk Utility and Image that folder. When you're done, open the new disk, and install!

After installing it, DO NOT MODIFY ANYTHING MANUALLY. Open the new expansion pack, and update it. After updating, close it. And in order to play successfully, download the No DVD Fix or patch from Gamecopyworld, or apply the Ultimate fix patch. Open the newly updated and manually modified game, and play. Just click continue playing when something pops up.

May I ask why exactly we have to download the torrent if we have the retail version? What is the significance of the torrented version to the retail version? Aren't the files the same? My issue is this. I didn't have problems updating until this latest update. I simply put the original files back to the base game, updated, and then cracked over originals. The issue this time is that this update is not only looking at the original or the base game and Generations/Town Life, but all games in between. I put the original files back from the Ultimate Fix download, but it still says the files have been modified.

In my opinion, you've mess with the file without you noticed it. have you try to re-install back?

I didn't mess with those files because I didn't know they existed. But I uninstalled and reinstalled so that was my solution. But thanks anyway.
