Do I need to download a NON G4TW version of the basegame of THE SIMS 3?

Post by Aiaiaiai on Tue 27 Dec 2011, 22:08

Hi,

I have been trying to get the base game to work and I keep running into

Unable to start game

Service initialization failed (0x039e8474)

I have the complete collection of the sims game from this site, I got the stuffit expander and used that to extract files, I am running on a mac so I have created a new ISO image following the directions on the site, I have done the serial keygen included in the #crack, I have replaced the Crack files, and I still get the same message. I must have uninstalled and installed a dozen times by now.

Is there anything that I am missing before I go and download another version of the Base Game? and will other base games work with these expansion packs I downloaded from here?

Thanks again in advance guys :-)

A

//EDIT

Oh! it installs fine but I cant seem to run it I keep getting the error message.

Mod edit: Topic moved to the right section.

Hello,
I know nothing about MAC, but as far as I know, you need a different version of the base game, but all the expansions from G4TW should install on MAC.
I recommend browsing the MAC support section for more information, specifically the stickies and announcements on top.

Please download this version of the base game from this thread which is already put into a .dmg file as ripped it from my original copy. The torent from the g4tw doesn't work on mac's.
