Sims 3: CD still missing

Post by ennandrea on Mon 09 May 2016, 21:29

I read the installation guide, downloaded the manual patch, re-downloaded the fix twice and put the crack in a million times but the game still says that I need a disc. I honestly don't know what to do now, did I **** up with the crack or with the fix? Do I need to uninstall everything and reinstall it back at pirate bay? Im at a loss.

Hello and welcome to the forum,


Did you also install at least one of the expansion packs too ? Otherwise the Ultimate fix won't work. 


Yes, if you placed the 2 files from the #Crack-folder of the Ultimate fix, into the correct location C:\Program files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin, replaced the existing files, but the game still asks for a disc, it could point to a defective installation. In that case, feel free to check the chatbox regularly to see if I am online. I will then see to helping you with TeamViewer on that, if you like. Read up here on more information about TeamViewer.

Again

Hi Carlos,

Yes I did install an expansion pack, but I did it wrong with the crack, I redownloaded it and now I am trying to install it again but it tells me I have to delete my other (already installed) version, the 165 I think, I just can't find that one anymore. Is there something I can download that uninstalls that? After that I just follow the installation guide. Thank you!

Hello,


You don't need to reinstall the game, just patch it to 1.67, using the manual patch and copy the crack. 
If this happens again, it's always a good idea to double-check that you did in fact copy the crack, and not made the common error of mistaking other files for the crack.
