Bittorrent isn't downloading the torrents

Post by Shaloveyouqueen on Mon 15 Aug 2016, 13:35

Hello!

I'm new here. I decided to download expansion from here because it seems like I need it for the fix to work. (My game keeps on crashing.)

So, I have this problem while downloading the torrents from here with bittorrent. I kept trying and trying but it wounldn't start. It gets stuck at "connecting to peers". 

I'm currrently trying to download The Sims 3 Pets (fixed) and the Sims 3 University life.

Please help me!  
Thanks a lot!

Hello,


Welcome to the forum.


Make sure your client is fully updated, and try to load the torrent as well as the magnet link. If that fails, you could consider switching to Utorrent.

Here's picture. It's in my native language, but layout is the same, so you should easily update it.

It says "unable to contact server". What should I do?
Sorry if I'm bothering you but I am really desperate.

Try downloading other torrent clients like uTorrent or delete download and add expansion you want to download again.

I already changed to Utorrent and I 'm trying with The Sims 3 Seasons.

The same problem is occuring.

There's no peers and it is stuck in "connecting with peers 0.0%".

Have you also read this here already, about correctly setting up µTorrent settings ?
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t11496-how-to-speed-up-fix-utorrent-downloads

About the "port forwarding"...that can be a diffcult issue, and you will need to do some research on your own router/modem, on how to open certain ports. But try changing the settings of µTorrent first, and then see if you notice any differences already. Good luck ! Smile
