The Sims 3: How to downgrade from 1.26 to lower version?

Post by Thespian24 on Sun 06 Nov 2011, 08:05

Good day Games4theWorld and gamers!

I just want to ask how to downgrade The Sims 3 from 1.26 to 1.24. As everyone knows, 1.26 has messed up the whole game. Custom contents are not working properly anymore. There are a lot of bugs and glitches too. I have tried Google but most of them say it can't be done. Reinstalling the game instead will fix all the problems.

Thank you guys in advance.

Hello Thespian24!

Actually it's not possible, no. Though, there's a workaround:

1. Completely uninstall The Sims 3 + All expansions.
2. Restart your PC.
3. Reinstall The Sims 3 base game.
4. Use a manual 1.24 patch and do not update to 1.26 when prompted.

Although, this means you may not install Pets, because it'll automatically update your game to 1.26 . I think it's the same for Generations and Town Life Stuff.

Thanks for the feed back.

I am going to reinstall the whole game. I have one question though: in installing The Sims 3, isn't the game auto-updates itself?

And if I'm not mistaken, before 1.26 is 1.24, right?

Hello,
That's right, we were on patch 1.24 before.

But does it update itself?

Hello,
No not unless you check the "automatic updates" box in the launcher.

Hello
Well if you're going to install Pets, your game version will be 1.26. But if you don't, you can keep version 1.24 as long as you like.

//EDIT

I just replied to your other topic as well, it may be useful.

Are you sure? What if I delete the update in the Pets folder before I install it? Do you think it will do the trick?

Hello,
No, you'll be unable to install pets if you did that. The update is vital.

I remember when I installed Pets, I manually updated the base game from 1.24 to 1.26. I'm not sure though. Anyways, I have already uninstalled the whole game. Wish me luck! Very Happy

edit: I just finished reinstalling. Yup, you guys were right! It automatically updates itself! Basically, I just wasted time. Very Happy
