Can't update The Sims 3 Late Night to 6.5.1. [SOLVED]

Post by lephanaji on Fri 01 Jan 2016, 12:03

Hello. 
So I installed The Sims 3, Late Night, Generations and University Life and everything was working fine until my game crashed because there is new update for Late Night (6.5.1) (I use CLA). I have The Sims 3 early patches that I got from this site. I installed all of the patches, but it seems that game wont ?accept? the 6.5.1  patch. I opened my launcher and hovered over Late Night icon in it, it still says 6.2.4 even thought I applied the 6.5.1 patch and the game still keeps crashing and saying that I have 6.2.4 version and that I need to update it. Help please.

Hello and welcome to the forum,


Have you tried right-clicking on that "Late night 6.5.1. patch" and selecting "run as Administrator" ? Beyond that, these early patches that I posted back then are basically an additional offer, and NOT (!) essential for playing the game. I remember myself having difficulties with installing one of these earlier patches (not Late Night, but something else which I can't recall right now).

If you experience game crashes, try the solutions in this thread here for now:

Also make sure to double-check any mods for Sims 3 that you may have installed, as they can also cause crashes. Good luck for now !

Hello,


Welcome to G4TW.
With the manual patch, you don't have to update your individual expansionpacks anymore. If you've already used it, chances are that the crashes are unrelated to the Late Night patch level.

As far as I recall though, the manual superpatcher - for some reason - doesn't include the updates for the pre-"Generations" expansions/stuffpacks - such as Late Night. Maybe right now, the manual superpatcher does that too.

But at the time I wrote the above thread, the 1.67 superpatcher was long released and it did not include those early patches. But then, I may be totally wrong here too, so...

That is an interesting fix, which I didn't know about myself. Oh well.  Why.  

If you ever run into any other issues, feel free to open a new thread. But in the meantime, enjoy your game ! Problem solved, topic closed.
