Installing Expansions.

Post by SarahP260 on Wed 23 Nov 2016, 18:45

Alright, so I've been using Games 4 The World for Sims 3 for what seems like forever now, just new to the forums because this is the first time I've EVER had a problem installing any of the expansions and I've looked on the forum for help but it doesn't seem like I can find the solution for what I've got going on.

Let me explain; I've had Sims 3 and 17 of the expansions/stuff packs installed for about 6-8 months now and I wanted to add two more expansions (Island Paradise and World Adventures) from the collection to my game playing experience so in a usual manner I went to install them, and whilst doing so I came across this 'error' of sorts,  ; and I looked through the installation guide to see if there was a way to fix it, and, I attempted re-doing the 1.67 update as stated in the beginning installation instructions and although the update went through flawlessly when I went back to install Island Paradise again, it gave me the above error ^ again, so... what do I do?  How can I possibly fix this in order to play more with the two more added expansions?

Hello,


Welcome to the forum.
Always make sure to use winRAR to extract the files you've downloaded, rather than any other unpacking software.


If you're certain you've done that, have a look at your torrent client instead, maybe you're missing a small part of the file.

I always use WinRar and as I've stated, I've had this downloaded for a while now, so it's not my torrent client either.. I was able to install a lot of the expansions/stuff packs up until now and I've even uninstalled/installed packs from this in the past and it's just now giving me the issues.

Ok, try to unRAR it again.
If that doesn't work, you could try "force recheck" (or similar) in your torrent client.

Your problem may be your torrent client. Vuze Leap is a known malware platform so it may have corrupted the download. Try re-downloading the EP(s) using UTorrent or Free Download Manager .

Also be sure to follow the install instructions included in the official G4TW release.
