I can't install sims3packages and update isn't working!

Post by onyxperl on Sat 26 Nov 2011, 05:53

Hello everyone! I need help. I installed the expansion packs: the sims 3 pets (cracked) and the late night (crack) however, my sims 3 game is with orbiz. I try to install my contact and I get error saying "There is no content to be installed. Done!" I also used the crack that was supposed to fix all of the sims expansion packs. Please help me out? All of my custom stuff is in the game. And at the bottom of my launcher where the bubbles are, I hover the sims 3 bobble and get "0.00.0.0" and when I hover the sims 3 pets blob, I get "install the sims 3 pets" but I did that. Help me out as soon as possible. The Sims 3 plumbob Plus I get the update saying "update for mac/pc Pc Only" but I can't update it.

Hello,
It seems like your base game isn't installed, or at least the installer seems to think so.
Can you try a fresh install? Uninstall your Sims 3 and the expansions, restart your pc, and reinstall them. No cracks, only use the one from Pets or the fix.

Okay. Should I apply the crack for nightlife with the installer it comes with it and don't update it? Or just use the crack from the sims 3 pets(fixed) rar. ?

Hello,

This should clear up: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
Eventually you'll only need the crack from the Ultimate Fix. But if you follow the instructions on that page, there's nothing you need to worry about. Just read the instructions very carefully.

Hello,

That shouldn't make any difference, other than that the final crack should be copied to: C:\Program Files (X86)\Origin\The Sims 3\Game\Bin (Or something similar)

Wait quick question. In the fix, should I copy the sims 3 files in it and put them in the actual sims 3 bin or no?

Hello,

The first set of files are the original files of the game(s), which are needed in order to update safely. (Without getting the "Invalid File" error)
There's no harm in copying the first set of files. The only crack you need at the end, is the one in the "# Crack" folder.
So for the Fix, I recommend you just follow all instructions. If you do everything correctly, it'll always work. For more help with the Fix, this video might help: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1889-how-to-apply-the-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-instruction-video-new

So pretty much install the sims 3 and its expaions but update the manager first. Then I apply the crack for the pets 3 from its rar. File. Then go into the fix.rar. and put the folders from the sims 3 and sims 3 nightlife into the actual game bin folders right?

Hello,

That's correct. Note that the files in the Fix are no cracks. The only crack need (which you should apply only at the end of the installation, when everything has been installed and updated) is in the "# Crack" folder of the Fix. All the other files are just the original files, no cracks.

Okay cool. Install the sims 3 and update it, install the sims 3 pets crack, install the sims 3 late night, then put the fix rar. Sims 3 and the nightlife into the actual bin folders of the game. Then it should work? Also should I update the late night once I install it. Along with updating the sims 3 pets when installed?
