Error reading game files - The Sims 3 Pets

Post by Bianibi on Tue 25 Oct 2011, 19:57

I've posed this as a part of another thread in this forum (sorry), but I thought it would be better to make a new thread since it's a problem I haven't found any information.
When the installer for The SIms 3 Pets begins everything's ok, but as soon as it starts reading files to begin the installation I get this error Error reading game files $INSTALLVOLUME/Support/Readme/cs/ctimne.txt
I've tried reinstalling the game, making a fresh .dmg, but nothing works, I've also looked for the folders in my directories but there are none (which I think is precisely the problem, but I don't know how to correct it)
Can anyone help?

Hello,
Did you use the fixed torrent? There are 2 torrents, the fixed one is complete but if you got the other one you might need this.
But it may be best to get the fixed one if you don't have it because I can't guarantee that the abovementioned fix works for MAC.

hello, i've managed to fix the problem by starting again from the beginning - deleting all that i had done, and re-expanding the file, i did mount the file differently though, using this method http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t775-the-sims-3-mac-the-integrity-of-the-installer-cannot-be-verified-fix
hopefully this will help you also!

Thanks!

Yes, I managed to fix it using the Fixed version (I had downloaded the normal one), and I had to patch my game manually since I had an error message that said my game wasn't updatable. Thank you for the tips!

I did as you said but now it says this expansion is incompatible with base game version
