Help with Registry Errors. [SOLVED]

Post by jodogg7 on Sun 12 Feb 2017, 02:20

So before I installed the G4TW version of the Sims 3. I had the origin version with Ambitions, Late Night, Generations, Pets and University Life and I uninstalled all of them and reinstalled them all with Seasons and Fast Lane Stuff following the Sims 3 Install Guide carefully that's here on  the forums. I got the "unable to start game service initialization failed" Error and I assumed it was probably cause of stuff from my origin install and i followed a guide on how to clean up the registry files and I was stupid and figured maybe if I deleted all the EP registry keys that it would work...My game launched but only the base game started...But even weirder my Sims 3 Pets family from my origin install was still there and it wasn't saying the family wasn't compatible. I wanted to start the game but I figured I'd ask here...How do I fix it?

Edit: Realized I put this in the wrong section. Move it please.

Hello,


Welcome to the forum.
When you deleted the registry keys, your game stopped working. Well, let's see. This could become pretty messed up if we won't fix it right the first time. 
I would suggest uninstalling everything now, then reboot your PC. Then, go into the registry to see if there are any leftover entries. 
Now, you can reinstall everything and it should work.

I think it's much easier to leave the registry-job to Origin.
Log in to Origin and repair your game of even re-download.
When that's finished add the other DLC's from G4TW
