Base Game [SOLVED]

Post by SpiritAnimal on Sat 23 Apr 2016, 20:19

I already have The Sims 3 base game downloaded on my computer from a physical copy that is registered with origin. Will this be a problem when downloading an expansion back from here?

Hello again,


I can't really tell if it's going to be a problem. Some users say it works, others don't. So your best bet would be just to try it for yourself. Make sure you follow the guide here:

Good luck !

I use it myself and it just gives you notifications before launching the game that you have illegal base game or expansion pack.
Happy simming!

Help?

Post by SpiritAnimal on Sun 24 Apr 2016, 13:40

I keep making forums here, but I finished installing TS3 Seasons and TS3 Island Paradise. I have the base game and Generations, which were bought. I looked all over and I can't find a way to get rid of it.

I finally got everything working when the main menu was empty. Not the Launcher, but once you get passed the first loading screen. I can't choose a neighborhood or create a new family. The buttons are missing. Anyone have any help?

//MERGED


I merged your topics. Let's keep all problem-discussions about The Sims 3 in just one (1) topic for now, instead of having multiple (and unresolved) threads. Smile  

As for your current problem, please do steps #2, #4 and #5 here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

If you already downloaded the manual patch and/or Ultimate fix, you don't need to re-download them of course. Just re-apply them. Start with re-aplying the manual patch, then followed by the Ultimate fix. As for the Ultimate fix, make sure to only use the two files in the #Crack-folder. Copy and paste them into the location C:\Program files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and replace the existing files when prompted. Then try the game again.

Glad to hear it's working now!
Not dumb at all. The topic wouldn't be there if you were the only one making that mistake. Razz

Enjoy the game and please let us know if you need help again. Wink
