1.29 Update Problem. [SOLVED]

Post by smokeytaboo on Sun 18 Dec 2011, 05:11

I only have the base game and Pets currently on my pc. I have already installed the temp Ultimate fix and its not working. It gets to the neighborhood loading screen and then says Windows has encountered a problem with Sims 3 and crashes :/
Any idea what might be wrong?

I have the same problem. Before you start the game, does it say "It looks like you have installed an unofficial game modification that
does not match your current version of The Sims 3. We recommend that you
either uninstall these game modifications or get updated versions of
them - otherwise you may experience crashes or significant bugs.

Do you want to quit?"

If I click Continue, it does exactly what you're talking about.

I haven't got that error but at one point it did say that I needed the Sims 3 Pets disc and it'd close. But after installing the Ultimate Fix it now just crashes when it starts to load the neighborhood

I've gotten the Server Initialisation error when I open TS3.exe and the Modification popup when I open TS3W.exe

I'me kinda freaked, because I followed the instruction video PERFECTLY and I just don't know what the cause of this problem could be.

Yeah, I hope someone helps us soon as well, I finally managed to rid my game of bad custom content last night, and I was really looking forward to installing the fix and having 6 hours of gameplay, or more. BUT then this came up. Sad

Hello,
I've found and tested this method myself, I'm currently downloading the one Admin uploaded to have a look at the files and the installation guide to see if there are variations.

The instruction video doesn't apply to the temporary fix.

Hello,
I'm not sure if it matters if some of your games are legit and some aren't. Unless you own digital copies, it might not work with digital downloads because this fix is intended as a no cd for retail versions as to keep the original copy from getting damaged so it basically removes the disk authorisation scripting that wouldn't be present with digital retail copies, obviously.
So far the files in the temporary fix are exactly the same as the ones I used, and I updated manually, no problems whatsoever with my game. I have all G4TW, the complete series.

My base game is retail and the Pets is G4TW.

I tried reinstalling Pets and that didn't work either, it still crashes when I try to load any of the neighborhoods.

Hello,
Did the 1.29 update go well? Is your base game a disk or a digital version?


GreenEyedPotato wrote:So what do you think we should do?

Hello,
You are the person that followed the instructionvideo right? In that case, remove the mods folder from the place where you copied them to, and place it in C:\Documents and Settings\your pc\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 instead and try again.

Hello,
Have you tried playing the game with Pets installed before updating to 1.29, with the crack that came with Pets?

That's exactly what I did and this still happened.

Edit:

That's what happens when I open TS3.exe

//EDIT

This is what happens when I open TS3W.exe

http://i41.servimg.com/u/f41/17/11/60/87/sims3310.png

//EDIT

When I open from TS3.exe I get the error you get when you open TS3W.exe

//EDIT

And this is what happens if I click 'continue' on the last one. This is when I'm loading the family.

Hello,
You could try uninstalling, restarting, and reinstalling, but turn automatic updates off in the launcher. That way your game will be version 1.26 after installing Pets and you can test it using the crack found in the files.

Hello,
If you reinstall, that problem should go away as long as the game isn't updated to 1.29 and as long as the crack is in the right place.



GreenEyedPotato wrote:Okay, thank you in advance.

Hello,
Are you using other mods? If so, try disabling them for the moment, there might be a conflict.

I had other mods in the folder yes, custom content such as makeup, furniture, accessories, but most of my game mods were Twallan ones.
I tried playing with all in, didn't work, took them ALL out, no difference.

Hello,
The ones from Twallan should be compatible anyway since the temporary fix uses his noCD mod.
I'm kind of running out of ideas for the moment to be honest.
But as I'm looking back at previous replies, I see you have only downloaded stuff packs and all your expansions, including the latest one, are legit. Are they disks?

1.29 Update Problem

Post by JuliaSWESUB on Sun 18 Dec 2011, 12:04

I have applied the new (Temp.) fix and I have all the Expansions and Stuff packs, but when I'm trying to update the game to the 1.29 version It just tells me "Update: Incorrect file found". What have I done wrong?
