The Sims 1 problems :(

Post by nonstopdisco on Sun 11 Dec 2011, 21:46

I extracted the winrar file to a new folder on my desktop. I followed the installation guide and it still doesn't work. When i copy the cracked .exe to the sims folder (as directed) it just makes a short cut.. and when i try to launch the game it says "no cd in CD-ROM drive. please press OK and restart".. I'm very familiar with torrents, but i'm having a bit of trouble with this one.

Thanks in advance. Smile

Hello,

Could you please post a screenshot of the folder where you copied the crack to?
And, did you right-click on the crack and choose "Copy" and then paste it in the game's directory? (Instead of drag & dropping)

Good day!

It seems that this topic haven't resolved yet and I happen to have the same problem. I installed the game using the setup, typed in the serial numbers, and copied the right crack into the correct destination folder (which is Computer > Program Files (x86) > Maxim > The Sims). But whenever I try to open the software, my screen goes black and then after a few seconds, it returns me to my desktop. I also tried opening it via The Sims Creator but a message pops up saying "no cd in CD-ROM drive. please press OK and restart". I even tried uninstalling and installing the game again using the Start.exe and found no luck Sad
I could provide screenshots if it will help you guys to solve my problem but unfortunately I dont have any idea how to attach a screencap.
Hoping for a quick response from anyone! I really want to play this game again.

thank you! Smile

Hello,

Please read my previous post(s).
If possible, also provide a screenshot of the folder where you copied the crack to. (You can also link to the screenshot, no need to attach)

Hi all,

I am having a similar problem. I followed the directions to the tee, I go to start it it shows a black screen with music for about 30 seconds then closes out of the game. I know I put the crack in the right directory, I even tried looking for another crack but nothing seems to be working. Black screen...music...close.

Hello,

I see. Both of you, please try this: games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-update-16-12-2011

Refer to step 2 and be sure to add ALL OF THE .exe files from this folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Maxis\The Sims

Every single .exe file must be added to the DEP!

I am getting the same problem. After installation, it never asked me to register. It seemed fine but I get an error message that says that I installed another expansion after makin magic, and to please insert that disk to continue. I followed your directions here to no avail. What should I do?

Expansion pack..?

Post by tradedtoracine on Thu 05 Jan 2012, 23:22

I followed EVERY instruction in the readme file. I copied the crack to C:\Program files\Maxis\The Sims which is where the original was installed. When I went to launch the game, I got a message saying that I installed another expansion pack after the Sims makin magic, and that I need to insert that CD, which I obviously don't have. None of your forums or the video were helpful in my case. I know I copied the c rack to the right place. So, please post a response asap. Thanks.

Ive tried everything...

Post by AngelaRain on Sat 07 Jan 2012, 06:04

I downloaded the sims 1 collection. i watched the video on how to properly crack and install it. i followed that exactly. when i went to play it, it would do the black screen for a few secconds then go back to desk top thing. So, i changed the compatiblity to windows 95 and even tried windows 2000. then did the DEP thing. Now, it lets me go to the opening screen. if i click 800x600 or 1024x768 or sims creator it does the black screen then back to the desk top . Then i tried screen resolution. same result. I dont know what else to do. If anyone could give me some guidance, that would be awesome. Im using a windows 7 asus laptop.
