Sims 3 Won't Launch after origin updated my base game.

Post by kendrakitty on Fri 13 Nov 2015, 16:35

So I installed multiple expansions last night off G4TW. When I finished installing them all, origin installed the newest update all by itself. Now the Sims 3 Launcher will not run. Is there any way to get past it? Any way to fix it?
Thanks!

Hello,


Try re-applying the "Ultimate fix" for Sims 3 again, to where you have your base game of Sims 3 installed. Typically C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Replace the existing files when prompted. Get the fix here:

Then try starting the game again. Good luck !


P.S. try running the game from the TS3W.exe, in your C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin-location.

No matter what I do, it always opens origin.

OK, I was hoping that the previous tip would already be enough, but it isn't sadly. The reason it opens Origin is because you got one or more Sims 3 games on your Origin account. The first thing you should do is learn how to turn off game updates in Origin. See this:

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t20385-a-note-on-automatic-game-updates-for-owners-of-the-sims-4-on-origin


That is written for Sims 4, but is valid for all games basically. And when you turn off these automatic updates, then you shouldn't update the Sims 3 on origin either - namely manually.

After you did that, you will have to uninstall all your Sims 3 games, and then re-boot the computer. After which, you start over with installing them again. That's the best I can tell for now. Good luck !
