Ultimate fix doesn't work. [SOLVED]

Post by brooklynzmac on Wed 17 Aug 2016, 14:55

I wanted to update my game, but fix from this topic doesn't work: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems#

When I try to patch game through launcher it says I don't have installed Sims 3 on my PC, manual patch pops up the same error, running as admin doesn't solve anything.

I have Windows 7 x64, The Sims 3 with all expansions.

Hello, and welcome to the forum,  Very Happy
what exact error does pop up? Could you screenshot it or write what it says?

//EDIT

Download Ultimate Fix and follow instructions given to update game. Manual Patch isn't necessaryif you can update game from launcher. 

Good luck and keep us posted!

Well, English isn't my native language, and error isn't in english too Razz In free translation it says:



"InstallShield didn't detect any installed version of The Sims 3.


This update requires installing previous version"

This error pops up both when I try to update game from launcher (it downloads patch and then this error occurs) and from Manual Patch. Launcher says that current version of my game is 1.63.5.024002. It isn't latest, right? Could it be also conflict with non-english game?

Did you download The Sims 3 from G4TW or other uploader?

//EDIT

Your game is version 1.63 and it was installed with Into the Future. Latest version is 1.67,and for Origin 1.69. 

Manual Patch shouldn't conflict with language as it's international. Only conflict could be game from other uploader as I mentioned above.

Hello,


Welcome to the forum.


It could have something to do with the type of installer. Where did you download the games from? And how were they installed? If you used a "modified installer", that could be a reason.

Since English isn't your native language, I'll skip straight to the point.

1. Go here.
2. Get and install uTorrent. Avoid letting it install anything but uTorrent itself. (You can skip these steps 1. and 2. if you have torrent client.) 
3. Go here: ___Games4theworld__]http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/5199941/The_Sims_3_[FULL]___Games4theworld__
4. Hit "Get This Torrent" and tell uTorrent to download it. If it says stopped after a second, right click it and click start.
5. If you have a program that opens .rar files, skip to 7. Otherwise download WinRAR.
6. Run the file you get, and install WinRAR, using all recommended settings, and let it set file associations.
7. When uTorrent has finished downloading "The Sims 3.rar," open it and extract it all to a folder on your computer.
8. Run the setup, saying "Yes" to everything (chose different if you want other installation directory), and use the "#Installation Guide.txt" to get a serial key.
9. Let it finish, and make sure that you allow it to install EA Download Manager.
10. When the installation has finished, run the game, and let it update itself.
11. Click this: [url=http://tellyzone.co.uk/games4theworld/1.38 ultimate fix/The_Sims_3_fix.rar]http://tellyzone.co.uk/games4theworld/1.38%20ultimate%20fix/The_Sims_3_fix.rar[/url]
12. Open the file you downloaded, and extract it.
13. Place the contents of the "#Crack" folder into C:/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin or other install directory, depending what you chose during installation.
14. Play the game!

I hope that you found this helpful! The download of the game will probably take a long time, but it is worth it. You can find all download here: http://thepiratebay.se/user/Games4theworld/

You can download The Sims 3 from G4TW, but it's not must have. If you don't mind you can play with patch version 1.63 or download from G4TW. I reccommend to download from G4TW as it would be easier to find cause of problem in some cases. With your current The Sims 3 version you can't update tonew version easy, if at all. 

So, to delete your all-in-one installation of The Sims 3 use [url=http://www.games4theworlddownloads.org/Downloads/torrents/Your_Uninstaller!_Pro_v7.0.2010.11.rar.torrent]Your Uninstaller! Pro [/url]on Super Mode. When it's uninstalled reboot PC. When PC booted up use this guide to completely remove The Sims 3. Again, reboot PC and now you hopefully can install The Sims 3 from G4TW. 

Good luck and keep us posted!  I tip my fedora.

Does G4TW's The Sims 3 contain also expansions or only vanilla? If only vanilla, then it doesn't matter from where i download expansions?

I'm downloading it and it isn't that bad, averagely 4MB/s, and it's only 5GB, so it won't take that long I guess Razz

Damn, almost 30GB xD Well, GTA V was worse, and I somehow survived. Thanks for the link!

//Edit: It works! And I'm surprised that it supports my language! Very Happy Thanks for help, problem solved.
