Icon bouncing on dock and then closes fix.

Post by FreeNoodles on Sun 06 Nov 2011, 12:41

This is Sims 3 (Reloaded) with all expansions (Games4theworld) except Pets

So after 3 days and frustratingly long nights of tinkering and researching, i finally found out why my sims 3 wont run at startup. The launcher starts up but not the main app. At first i thought it was a problem with how i installed everything, but i tried almost every step and everything checks out with pretty much every install instructions i found here in the forum, and i think i've tried them all.

okay, to the solution..

GO TO > APPLICATIONS > The Sims 3 > The Sims 3.app (right click, show package) > Contents > INFO.PLIST (open this file in text edit)

And look for this line "C:\Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin/S3Launcher.exe"

Then change "S3Launcher.exe" to "TS3W.exe" and save the document. But if you're only running on Sims 3 without expansions type this in "TS3.exe".

This is basically an optional missing step on the instructions for those having problems with starting up the game.
HAVE FUN! CUZ I KNOW I AM!


[color=blue]THIS MIGHT ALSO WORK FOR THOSE WHO ARE GETTING THE "Sims 3 quit unexpectedly" CRASH AT STARTUP.
