I bought Sims 3 on Steam so. [SOLVED]

Post by julieghoulie on Wed 13 Apr 2016, 17:24

Can I still get EP from here to use with my Steam copy or will it not work?

And is the process to install/crack them different than what's in the sticky?

Thanks!

Hello,


I'm sorry to inform you that you can't use cracked expansions with your Steam copy. I do believe however, that it is possible to have your Steam version converted into an Origin version, and that will work with cracked expansions.

Thanks for the response! I decided to just not use my Steam copy and I downloaded the complete Sims 3 collection from here. It finished overnight and when I try to unpack it, it says "Could not open the archive, may be damaged." Do I just have to re-download it probably?

Are you using WinRAR ? If you don't have the program, you can get it from this site here, install instructions included. Are you also sure that the download finished 100% in your torrent client ?

You can also try this, if you still have the torrent running under "seeding" in your client, right-click on it and choose STOP. Now right-click again and select "Force re-check". Now, assuming you downloaded it 100%, this re-check can take a while to complete.

When done, please try re-extracting again with WinRAR. Good luck ! Smile
