Sims 3 Complete Collection .RAR Damaged. [SOLVED]

Post by raeviejayvie on Thu 25 Aug 2016, 20:59

Hello!

I finished downloading all 27+gb of the Complete Collection (THANK YOU!), but for some reason when I go to unpack the .rar file each program gets to the 70s pack and stops, citing that the file may be damaged. I haven't been able to unpack the collection after 5 tries. Any ideas? Not having all of the files is preventing me from playing even the base game...I'm assuming this because I tried installing and applying the crack, but I get asked for a registration code every time I try to load the game.

Here are some specs:
Windows 10 v1607
Intel Core i3-5020U CPU @ 2.20 ghz
64bit w/ 6GB ram
about 400 gb still free on the drive

It's not much but it should be able to run this program...
Thanks a bunch in advance,

raeviejayvie

EDIT**
The programs I've used to unpack are WinOpener, RAR Opener, Z-Opener, and 10 Zip RAR Archiver

Hello and welcome to the forum @raeviejayvie,

I moved your post to the appropriate section. Smile  That said, try using "WinRAR" for extracting. You can get it also from Games4theworld here:

Good luck for now !

Opening topics in the main-support sections should be possible though:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/f38-the-sims-3-downloads-support-pc
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/f11-the-sims-3-in-game-support


You probably tried opening a topic in the "Tips" or "Fixes" section. Smile  But yes, do keep us posted, and good luck !

AFAIK t looks like WinRAR has everything unpacked, thanks! Amazing the difference between those programs. I will research my installation issues and open a new topic if I can't find an answer. Ya'll are helpful. I've been stumped installing this huge program.

Nice to hear. Smile  We always pack our downloads with WinRAR, hence they should be unpacked with WinRAR too. These packing programs typically use different algorithms with which they (de-)compress data. Meaning, they all have different "methods" of their own. In case of doubt about a torrent or download, ask the uploader what program he used to compress the download.

Feel free to open a new topic anytime again. Very Happy  In the meantime, have fun ! Problem solved, topic closed.
