No Town In Sims 3, "New Game" greys out

Post by diaaamndz on Thu 05 May 2016, 07:13

Hello! I finally got my Sims 3 working (read: it finally opens) after downloading the Fix. But then, in the game's main menu, I cannot select a town. The options are blank. When I click on the big + button "New Game" it greys out and is unclickable. I cannot do anything in the game. 

I read that you should use the Manual Update for it to work but my game is updated to the latest version (says so in the launcher). Please guide me step by step on how to fix this because I'm a beginner. Thank you so much in advance!

PS: I only have the Katy Perry Sweet Treats expansion pack and that makes me able to open the Sims 3.

Welcome to the forum and sorry for the late reply,  Why.


In the Ultimate fix there is a folder named #Crack, and it contains two files: a TS3W.exe and a TSLHost.dll. These 2 files must be copied and pasted into the following location.

C:\Program files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

When prompted, replace the existing files. Then try the game again. Good luck !

Thank you! I'll try that right now and update you with the results!

Update: Failed. I'm on the latest update of the Sims 3 and I've applied the fix twice (installed it twice) and still no avail. I also get this prompt before the program starts. Something about the modification not on the same version as the game I guess? Does it have something to do with the towns not appearing?

Hello,

When you say "updated to the latest version", do you mean game version 1.69.xx?? Please open the launcher to check this, your game version is in the bottom left corner.

I changed your post's font color from black to white. Please keep in mind that selecting a dark font color doesn't work on here, given the dark background color of the forum. Smile  That said, the problem could point to a defective installation of the game. Maybe you had the game before, tried uninstalling it, but you didn't remove it properly. I've seen cases like that in the past.


Feel free to read up on the TeamViewer information here, then check the chatbox at the top of the forum's main page regularly to see if I am there. I will then try and assist you with TeamViewer. Smile
