service initialization failed (0x039e8474) mac, need base game.

Post by punkfunk on Thu 18 May 2017, 16:04

Hello, I'm currently trying to install the sims 3 on my cousins mac. she didn't want all the stuff packs etc so I downloaded them individually instead of downloading the complex collection. I've installed all the base and the expansions she wants and I've used the patch and the ultimate fix, however every time I try to run it says this: service initialization failed (0x039e8474)
I think the issue may lay in the fact that the base game I have is in two iso files. I did as the mac instillation guide instructed and converted the files into a dmg file but it didn't work right. could someone please link me to a better version of the base game? I'd really appreciate it, thank you.

Hello,


That particular error usually comes up when there's a problem between mods, did you add any to her game yet? Before downloading another base game, try a "clean folder". This means going into the Documents folder (I think?) and rename the folder "The Sims 3". Doesn't really matter what you rename it to, the point is to try and let the game generate a new one.


As for a different base game, you'll need one from RELOADED to install on Mac.
