The sims 3 complete collection Help needed?

Post by Chantelle02 on Mon 29 May 2017, 19:11

Hi,

I really need help, I have no clue on how to work files and whatever else, total dummy when it comes to these things! Sad I had my friend download the sims 3 complete collection for me on bittorrent and now they have downloaded I cannot seem to find what to do next. I have read I need to install the base game first but I don't understand how. Can anyone help me with "simple" instructions IAmSoHappyEmergahwd Or is there a video that will show me exactly what to do from the step I am at? 
Pleaseee someone help this dummy out. IAmSoHappyEmergahwd Facepalm 

I'm new here. Help

Hi there!  Smile


There should be an installation guide inside the complete collection folder. To install the base game, just click on The Sims 3 folder -> Sims3setup.exe. The serial code can be found inside the Sims 3 folder (installation guide).

Thank you for your reply.
I am on this stage..

3. After the installation finished, open the "# Crack" folder in this .rar file and drag & drop (or copy) the
"TS3.exe" file in there to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin  and choose "Replace"
on the popup that appears, telling you the file already exists.

Ive gone into the crack file and there is only TS3W.exe not TS3.exe I transferred it anyway and I didn't get the "replace" pop up I got something about administrator which I clicked continue and when I pressed the icon to play I got this message come up. See attached photo.
Also in the photo in the left hand corner you can see the ts3w not the ts3 and then the bin where I dragged it in too.

Hello,


Did you install any expansion packs?

Looks like you've installed the base game though, and are trying to run it with the 1.67 crack. That doesn't work, you need expansion packs or stuff packs to use the crack.

My friend had a look and redone step 3 as I must of done it wrong. She also installed pets and everything was going fine but after an hour and a half of game playing I had the message "the sims 3 gas stopped working" and the game collapsed? She followed all the steps so not really sure why that happened..
