FullBuild_p15.package's purpose help please. [SOLVED]

Post by pissed and fooled on Wed 10 Feb 2016, 19:44

I've been doing research and nothing is coming up, I figured someone here has to know the answer and a way to fix this. I have an actual Sims 3 supernatural DVD for the PC here (a very scratched one, just got it). FullBuild_p15.package seems to be unreadable or that's what I'm assuming. There's also Resource.cfg that's unreadable. So I used radkill unstopable copier to get the rest. I read on a forum here that a normal FullBuild package can't be replaced just like that so:

-What exactly does it do and can I replace it/play without it?
-Does someone have that other file (Resource.cfg) to share?

I figured I could copy the files, mount them as an ISO after I've replaced the right parts and try to install that?? My knowledge is very limited....

There's also a Mac update file that isn't readable but I figured I dont need that since I'm using a windows pc.

___
that second file might actually be just my clicky finger since it didn't even try with that file

Hello and welcome to the forum,

First of all, yes, you typically need all the files that are on the disc of a software/game (if you didn't need them, the game publisher most likely wouldn't have put them on the disc Wink ). Secondly, I'm afraid the disc is too damaged to recover anything from it. Yes, you "can" try and create an .ISO from the disc, but since it's so badly scratched, you are going to end up with read/write errors. 

The best thing that I can offer now is that you download a pirated version of "Supernatural", from Games4theworld's site here for example:
https://games4theworld.org/downloads.html


You'll need a torrent client to be able to download that. If you happen to be unfamiliar with that, feel free to read up on the tutorial here. As for the Supernatural-download, follow the included instructions, but do not apply the #Crack there. Instead, do the steps #2, #4 and #5 from this guide here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly



That is all for now - good luck !

And this will work with the base game and expansions I have installed?

I can recover the FullBuild_p15.package from the original owner apparently and the other file too. The installer seems to find the files if they're in their right folders.

//EDIT


Also I didn't say this in my last message whoops but thankyou, I appreciate your help.

No problem at all. The pirated expansions of The Sims 3 work alongside the retail disc versions of the game as well with the Origin-versions. But I'm not so sure about the compatibility with Steam-based games.

If you can get hold of the disc data portions that are "un-recoverable", then yes, you don't need to re-download a pirated version.

Feel free to keep us posted about your progress here - I will leave the topic open for now. Smile

Thankyou. The files were too big to send etc. but I'm sure the original owner of the disk will be glad to hear this. I downloaded the pirated version and it worked just fine even though my sims is a mish mash pile of updated parts and non-updated parts. I dont know where I'd be without these forums. The games are just too expensive for me. I appreciate your help and your work here on games4theworld.

No problem at all, and feel free to open a new topic anytime you need more support. Have fun ! Problem solved, topic closed. Smile

Tip: save the download of "Supernatural" somewhere, if possible, for example onto a USB flashdrive or an external hard-drive. That way you won't have to re-download in the event you e.g. need to re-install Windows or move on to another computer.
