Please help!

Post by SamuelPack on Sat 08 Oct 2011, 21:56

I've followed every step on the instillation guides, disk utility everything like that. I have retail versions of WA, FL, TS3 and High End Lot Stuff. after i bought them i decided to start downloading on my pc to save the time of going out and buying it physically, then i realised after getting my Macbook Pro i can't actually download them because silly EA, have decided to make Origin windows exclusive, idiots! So i decided to get the rest for free instead of re-buying, i go to install town life after using disk utility all that jazz and it just bounces in my dock for a while, when i click it it just disappears. Guidance anyone? I'm stuck here....

Retart your PC, and try again?

It should not be a problem actually, since your problem it's different. You cannot install the town life right?
HUrm, actually I'm doing research about your problem at google. Unfortunately I still not found any solution. But, have no worry mate. Your problem can be solved soon, just give us some time Smile

Patient is the key Smile And I believe you do have it.

P/s: You also can take a look at the Mac section. Maybe there will be some problem familiar to your problem.

Thanks, i'll just have to wait... i extract the rar in to a folder on my desktop, everything is in there, go to disk utility and click make new disk image, once i've done that i open up the dmg, click the installer and it bounces, inside the installer isn't much just a few folders, does that sound all correct is that right?

What software are you using to extract it?

By the way, I really demand you to install your SIMS 3 with the guide given at THIS topic.

Hello,
Please try the link to the topic that was posted before. We don't officially give Mac support but other mac users have been helping each other out a lot. I'm afraid I don't know much of anything about it.

That didn't help either, i can't figure this out, maybe its because its not installed in the order its supposed to, like uninstall all sims, install retail sims 3 then install town life then any other expansion?

Hey Samuel, I'm going to try to use these other torrents which say PC, but I thought, "The Sims 3 boxes say WIN/MAC meaning, if the torrent is the .dmg, it'll be PC and Mac!" I'll tell you what happens when they're done.

//EDIT

They work, the torrents for Sims 3 that say PC are also for Mac.
