So I'm getting the same issue, and I've tried everything!

Post by aurora16 on Thu 24 Mar 2016, 03:23

Hi!

So I'm getting the same issue, and I've tried everything!

I downloaded Showtime, Movie, Diesel, and 70s as these were the only ones I didn't have.

I followed all the instructions to the T, and even downloaded your "Ultimate Fix", replacing all the .exe and .dll files in the folders, and it's still coming up with "Sims3Launcher not working".

I've even tried running TS3W.exe to bypass the launcher, and it still comes up saying "Sims3Launcher not working".

Please help!

//SPLIT

Hello and welcome to the forum @aurora16,

I split your post into a separate topic. I'll assume you applied the Ultimate fix to a legit Sims 3 base game ? And that Sims 3 base game needs Origin to run ?

I did. And it does.

I've tried uninstalling the downloaded games, and it's still not working

Uninstalling the pirated games isn't going to solve the problem. What you should do now is to uninstall that Origin base-game of The Sims 3, and then re-boot the computer. Uninstalling the game can be done from within Origin I believe, by right-clicking on the game in the library and selecting "uninstall".

You will then need to download a pirated Sims 3 game, for example from G4TW on this site here; please scroll down to the bottom of the page and look for "The Sims 3 (HOT)". If you download that base game, you will need to mount .ISO files. If you are unfamiliar with it, feel free to have a look at this guide

So install that base game, apply the 1,67 manual patch on top of it, and then add the expansions that you like to have.  

Good luck !

Will this affect any of the expansion/stuff packs that I haven't downloaded?

No, why should it ? You can later on add all the (pirated) expansions and stuffpacks on top of your base game, that you like.

Hello,


It won't, when you reinstall the base game following the instructions, it should all work normally. Don't forget to restart the PC after uninstalling the base game!
