Sims 3 won't start

Post by LooWr45 on Tue 27 Dec 2011, 18:09

Hello,
I bought the base game and downloaded all the other stuff from you. Now i've done everything in the untimate fix. Then i've manually updated the game to version 1.29. It worked one time and now it says that i have to place the disk of Sims 3: Pets.
What can I do?


Thanks a Lot
Hannelore

Hallo,

Opent u het .rar bestand van de Fix en navigeer naar de "# Crack" folder. Open vervolgens de folder ín de "# Crack" folder. U ziet, als het goed is, een .dll en een .exe bestand. Select en sleep beide bestanden naar precies: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin en selecteer "Vervangen" op de pop-up die verschijnt.

Hallo,
Ik weet zeker dat ik dat al zo had gedaan maar ik heb het nog eens gedaan en het werkt, dat is het belangrijkste. Mijn Sims launcher heeft wel nog een probleem. Er staan rode lijnen op en wanneer ik een item wil installeren zegt hij dat hij de procedure niet kan vinden..
Alvast bedankt!

Hallo,

U had waarschijnlijke de verkeerde bestanden gekopieerd naar de game\bin folder.
Kunt u misschien een screenshot posten van beide problemen?

Rode lijnen

Post by LooWr45 on Tue 27 Dec 2011, 20:43

Hallo,
Het probleem met de installatie heeft zichzelf op miraculeuze wijze opgelost.
Er zijn echter nog steeds rode lijnen te zien.

Hier zijn ze aan de zijkant te zien, maar soms zitten ze helemaal over de launcher.
Mvg,
Hannelore

Hallo,

Dat waar bij u het kruisje zit, zit normaal het scrollbalkje. Zie hier:



Is het heel vervelend of kunt u er wel mee leven?
U kunt het volgende proberen, ik weet niet of het daadwerkelijk effect heeft:

1. Update Java; https://www.java.com/nl/
2. Update Adobe Flash Player: get.adobe.com/nl/flashplayer/ (Haal eventueel het vinkje voor "Ja, installeer McAfee Security Scan Plus (optioneel) (0,98 MB)" weg!)
3. Herstart uw PC en kijk of het heeft geholpen.

Succes!

Hallo,
Over het algemeen is hij ook heel traag de Launcher maar ik kan er wel mee leven. Ik vond het gewoon raar dat dit opeens was.

Hallo,
Ik heb dit nog nooit gezien, maar lukt het wel om de optie "alles selecteren" te kiezen voor het installeren van downloads?
Dat de launcher traag is ben ik wel bekend mee, in principe heeft u die niet nodig om het spel te starten, dat gaat zoals hier beschreven is.

Hi,

I have the same problem that was described in the first message - it says that I have to put the Pets disc in? I have copied the Crack files to the game bin like it says in the instruction manual of the ultimate fix, and I think the difference is that it didn't ask me to replace them, just copied them in?
How do I fix this?

Hello,
That's your clue that something went wrong when you copied the crack. Make sure that it is the files from the #crack folder that you copied to the bin. People often mistake the original files found in the fix for cracks, and that's where things go wrong. The fix has only one crack. If the right files are copied to the right folder, you should always get asked if you want to replace this with that.

I dragged and dropped the two files in the Crack# folder> Pets & Town Life Stuff & Generations to the base game, game bin. I know that it was a sign that I did something wrong when it didn't tell me to replace them but I can't see what I've done... Also when I dragged and dropped, the files went completely out of the Crack folder so I can't even see which ones I did wrong... Sorry for being such a novice! Not sure what to do now!

//EDIT

I've actually just rewatched the instruction video and have moved the
files back into the Crack# folder. I've come to the conclusion that the
original files aren't in the game bin to replace... What have I done to
cause this? It's very confusing!

Hello,
I think you have to re download the fix to get the files back. Copy/paste them instead of dragging&dropping so you will always retain copies of the files.What concerns me is that your original files are missing from the bin now.
Can you post a screenshot?

Hey, ok I can do that. And I shall attach the screen shot for you.
You're right, the files in the bin are now the ones from the Crack# so I
don't know when or where the original ones went... I'll have a go at
downloading the fix again and applying it in the meantime, thanks a lot
for your help Smile.



//EDIT

Ok, it's working Very Happy. Yay! But... it crashed. I'll have another go and hopefully it'll not do it again. But thanks for your help!

Hello,
Crashing isn't necessarily related. Look here for possible solutions.
