Crack

Post by matausas on Sat 31 Dec 2011, 11:42

Hello, I'm new here. I just downloaded sims 3. Now I want to ask should I apply the Base Game crack if I want to install other Sims 3 expansions? In one of your video I read that if I want to install The Sims 3 expansions I don't need to apply the base game crack. I'm confused. If I install Generations/Town life stuff/Pets do I have to apply their cracks to the base game or the base game crack?

Hello,
This will probably answer your question.
Although if you want to start playing the Sims before adding any expansions, you'll have to use the crack that came with the files you downloaded.

Okay, I want to ask It says: "3. Install any other expansions you like. (When installing WA, just skip the "# Crack" folder AND when installing Late Night, ignore the Installation Guide, which says you need to reinstall everything)"
I want to ask: I don't need to apply the sims 3Wa and The sims 3 Late night crack?Do I need to apply or not the other expasions cracks?
For example The Sims 3 Fast Lane Stuff in installation guide it says:
4. When done Installing the Game, open the "# Crack" folder in this .rar file and open the "Crack 1"
folder in there.
5. Copy + paste the "TS3.exe" and the "TSLHost.dll" to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and REPLACE them with the existing ones.

6. Now, open the "# Crack" folder in this .rar file again and open the "Crack 2" folder. Copy + paste the
"TS3SP02.exe" and the "TSLHost.dll" in there to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 Fast Lane Stuff\Game\Bin and REPLACE them with the
existing ones.----------Should I do what it says?

Hello,
No, just install the base game, install Generations or Town Life Stuff or Pets first, then you can install them all in no particular order.
All of the older cracks have become obsolete, you really don't need them. Now, get the ultimate fix. I recommend patching manually once you get to step 13 to avoid the "invalid file error" we get so much these days. Because this is a fresh install and you're not applying any cracks during the install, you can skip all of the previous steps in the fix because these steps replace crack files with original files. in a fresh install, the original files are already present.
Anyway, get the manual patch I mentioned, use it to patch the game to the latest version and open the #crack folder in the fix and copy both files to the location specified in the installation guide.

Okay, Thanks. I just have one little question. So I only have to copy the crack folder in the fix and no other expansions?
I'm sorry but i'm that kind of person you have to explain like to a 4 year old.

Hello,
No problem, we're here to help.
Yes just use the 2 files found in the Ultimate Fix's #crack folder and no other cracks.

Hi, I was installing The Sims 3 Outdoor living stuff and I opened the installing guide. It said:

2. When you're done installing the base game, open "Start", type "regedit" in the search box and
then press [ENTER].
3. When you're in the Register Editor, navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Sims > The Sims 3 OR IT MAY BE IN:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Wow6432Node > Sims > The Sims 3 (Windows 7, Vista)

4. Here you'll see a file called "SKU". Double click on it and change the value - which
should be "2" or "7" - to "1" and press "OK". Now close the Register Editor.
5. Open the "# Patch" folder in this .rar file and double-click on the "TS3_1.19.44.010001_Update.exe"
in there. The wizard will now patch your The Sims 3 base game to v1.19.44.010001.
If you get an "Invalid File" error during the patching, please apply step 1 to 10 of this fix:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-latest-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems (Putting
back the original files, so you can patch the game)

and in the WA installation guide it said:
2. Now open the Start menu. Type 'regedit' in the search box and press [ENTER]. Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sims\The Sims 3 and double-click on 'SKU'. Change the shown
number to 2 and press 'OK'. Close the Register Editor.

3. Open the '# Crack' file in this .rar file and open 'Crack 1'. Run the 'sims3patch.exe' and
follow on screen instructions. Change the 'C:\Program Files\Sims 3' to:
'C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3' before Installing the Patch! (If you have
Installed The Sims 3 in an other language, it'll be something else. Like when you Installed
The Game in Dutch, it'll be: 'C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\De Sims 3', so be sure you
check what you have, otherwise it won't work!

4. Open the 'Crack 2' folder in the '# Crack' file. Copy įll the files in that folder
to: C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and REPLACE them by the existing ones.

5. Now open the 'Crack 3' folder and start the 'Sims3_1.2.7.00002_from_1.0.631.00002.exe'
patch.

6. Do the same with the other .exe Patches in the 'Crack 3' folder, from up to down.
7. When you applied all the Updates, open The Sims 3 Launcher. You'll be prompted to Download
the EA Download Manager if you haven't already Installed it. So, if you don't have it, Install
it. When you've Installed the EA Download Manager, click on 'Refresh' on the Game Updates -tab.
A pop-up will appear, telling you that there's an Update for you Game. Click 'OK' to Download
and Install the Update.

8. Now completely close the Game including the EA Download Manager from the System Tray. Open
the 'Sims3EP01Setup.exe' in this .rar file. Follow on screen instructions to Install the
Game. When a Serial code is needed, use one of the following Serial codes:

Do I have to do it?

Hello,
For outdoor living stuff, you should probably change the SKU (steps 2, 3 and 4), not doing so can cause a game region during installation and you'll be unable to install. The same goes for step 2 in the WA guide.
You can disregard the rest though.

Hi, well I did all that. At first Sims 3 crashes. I got a DEP problem so I fixed it. Now it works but it works VERY VERY VERY slow so I don't think I'll be able to play it. Other games don't work that slow on my computer so I don't know what the problem is.Could I do anything that it wouldn't work that slow. Help please.

Hello,
Are you experiencing lagging, or are the loading times just that slow?

Well the loading is very slow. At first items load very slow. The live mode is the slowest. My sims just freeze every 2 minutes and don't move.

Hello,
Does your pc meet the requirements? Are all its drivers up to date? Particularly your graphicscard and its drivers.
I'm on a low end PC myself and while it takes forever to start the game and load the save game, gameplay is fine.

Hello,
You can find out if you meet the requirements here. If you have Pets, its probably best to find it in the drop down menu because system requirements have chjanged a little with the introduction of that expansionpack.

It says
RAM
Minimum: For XP 1 GB RAM / Windows Vista and Windows 7 1.5 GB RAM (For NVIDIA ION computers, the game requires at least 2.0 GB RAM)
You Have: 1.0 GB

It's the only thing I failed. What should I do?

By the way I have Windows 7

Hello,
That's probably the cause of the slow game play. You could try lowering all the quality settings, increasing your virtual memory, playing in windowed mode and closing all unneeded applications running in the background.
But that doesn't guarantee anything.
If possible, you could upgrade your hardware. Memory usually isn't very expensive.

Hello,
That's found in the options menu under video options (if I'm not mistaken) its a check box that you can check and uncheck to switch between windowed anf fullscreen mode.

Hello,
I think so yes. Do you have xp on your pc as well?
I remember a good few years ago I was running 2 OS on my pc because of 1 game I wanted to play. Never any issues, but I didn't want to suggest doing something like that because I didn't know if it was even still possible.

Hello,
Don't use the crack that came with Generations at all. It wont be compatible with your game version.
I recommend getting the Ultimate fix, it'll allow you to patch your game to the latest version.
