Sims 3: Where is the crack?[SOLVED]

Post by erica12 on Wed 26 Oct 2011, 09:51

I downloaded the Sims 3 Complete torrent with all the expansions, and then I downloaded the link on this forum that was the "fix-all" and I still can't find the crack file in the .rar. I was able to install everything, but it won't let me run it because, I am assuming, I didn't put in the crack file. Yet...I can't find it. Even after searching the forum and download the "fix everything" file. Help, please?

Hello,
If you unrar the fix, you should see a number of folders. All expansionpacks and the base game are listed. Look at the folder on top, you can't miss it. It's called #crack and inside are the files you need to crack your game.

When I click the the .rar this is what I get



I'm not that new to torrents. But don't have a lot of experience. So maybe I am missing something obvious?

Hello,
Not obvious, but simple enough. You're using winZip, and you need to use winRAR to unrar G4TW files. If you don't have winRAR, you can download it from G4TW.
I can see the crack though, both files are located under the #Installation Guide. But it would be best to extract with winRAR before proceeding.

And now that I put it in a screen shot I can see the #Crack. Of course..

//EDIT

So once I download winRAR, where exactly do I need to start? I really appreciate the help. Movies and albums I can download...games...not so much.

Argh. Now it is all installed and seems to be in good working order, but when I click play it is just showing the loading thing foreverrrrrr. (Whereas it used to say "insert disc 1 etc etc".

Hello,
If you're on a low end pc, it can take a very long time to load. Try closing any non essential programs in the background, a free tool like Gamebooster will do it for you.
