Sims 3 Launcher/Game not opening

Post by Aisiee on Thu 31 Mar 2016, 06:39

Okay so I've been so excited to download these expansion packs because it was I needed to complete my collection. Everything downloaded fine blah blah but when I click the launcher it just says the launcher stopped working. So I tried to open just the game with the .exe file in the bin but then it says the sims has stopped working or whatever. I did the ultimate fix and followed all the steps but it might be because my sims folder is in the origin one but my downloaded expansions are in the electronic arts folder. If that is the problem, where should I move what?

Hello and welcome to the forum @Aisiee,


No need to "move" anything. You copy the files TS3W.exe & TSLHost.dll, from the #crack-folder of your Ultimate fix, into the following location.

C:\Program files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.


Of course, you need to replace the existing files when prompted. Then try running the game again, from that TS3W.exe.

Thank you for responding so quickly but I've already done that. It doesn't work, even if I try from TS3W.exe Sad I was thinking I would just delete my origin Sims and download the complete collection. But in the complete collection are there stuff packs as well? Because I just want the expansions so my game isn't too slow.

I was going to suggest something similar. It seems that the "newer" Origin base game of The Sims 3 cannot be mixed with the Ultimate fix from here. This newer base game version apparently requires Origin to run, and the Ultimate fix doesn't seem to work there.

However, the pirated base game version that Games4theworld provides, is based on the retail disc version. With which you can use the Ultimate fix.

And yes, the complete collection includes the base game as well as all expansions and stuffpacks that were released for The Sims 3. Smile

Okay thank you. Is there any way I could get the collection without the stuff packs? Or could somebody possibly put it together? I have a pretty low spec computer so I do not want all the stuff packs.

Well yes but the downloading takes a very long time so is there no collection WITHOUT the stuff packs Smile

I don't really see much sense in such a compilation (since almost all people want the complete pack anyway), but why not just run multiple of these separate expansions at once in your torrent client ?

If you torrent each of these expansion packs individually, isn't that (almost) the same as a "collection without stuffpacks" ? Smile  I mean, the individual expansions are slightly bigger in filesize, because the old patches and crack files are included, OK. But you're the only user so far requesting this, and (I'm sorry to say it), but most likely we won't be working on a compilation without the stuffpacks.
