Legal base game but need disk for downloaded expansion.

Post by Koekeldoedeltje on Fri 20 Jan 2017, 21:24

Hello

I'm very sorry if this question has been asked allready, but i'm new to this.

So i had bought the base game with a gamedisk now i've downloaded the expansionpack 'pets' and did what the installation guide said, i'm really sure I did everything right. But when I want to open my sims game (with the original disk in my laptop) it says it needs the game disk of 'pets'.

I've tried it too without het disk in my laptop and it didn't work too.

It would be really nice if someone could help me, and i'm sorry if this is in the wrong section.

Having a genuine bought base game, you are most probably on version 1.69 for the Sims 3
I don't know where you downloaded Pets from, I presume G4TW.
Have you placed the provided crack correctly in the base game
No crack means that the program always asks for the CD of the highest installed expansion.

Hello,


Welcome to the forum.
Did you use the crack that was provided with the download, or the one from the fix? The one that came with your download is now outdated, and will result in the same error. 
Also, open your launcher for a bit to check on your gameversion. The value is found in the lower left corner on the launcher. It'll be 1.67.xx or 1.69.xx. 
I have heard that the crack will sometimes work with 1.69.xx, but you need gameversion 1.67.xx.
The only way to revert to a previous gameversion, is to reinstall your base game (and prevent automatic updates).

My version of the sims 3 is still 1.67.
But I don't really understand your comment, I downloaded 'the sims 3: pets [FULL/FIXED] from piratebay. Do I have to download something from the fix?

The crack included in these expansion torrents is outdated. Something that a lot of people underestimate: once a torrent is out you cannot modify it anymore. The Pets-torrent is from 2012 I think?

So yes, please re-do steps #2, #4 and #5 here:

But my version of the sims 3 base game is 1.67 and in step 2 you need to update to 1.67? Why should I download that? and step 4 is that for all the expansions or for the base game only?

After installing expansions there can be small "glitches", so it's still a good idea to re-apply the 1.67 manual patch. And steps 4 and 5 are for *everything*. You apply that crack only to the base game folder, but it will work for the entire game, if you installed at least one (1) expansion.

If you go ahead and follow all of the steps in the ultimate fix, your game will be fixed and you will not need a disk in orde3r to play your game. I hope the team has been helpful. If you have any other questions, we are more then happy to help!
