ERROR when starting the game. (0x039e8474)

Post by jumarques on Thu 15 Jun 2017, 23:40

I donwloaded and installed separately the The Sims 3 Base Game + Seasons pack available on the downloads section of Games4theWorld website.

Everything was fine, and I installed the ultimate fix + crack too.

But when I click on "Play", the screen becomes black and few minutes later this error appears and the screen closes:



It's in portuguese but says: "It's not possible to start the game. The initialization of the service failed. (0x039e8474)"


I'm using MAC.


Any idea of how can I fix it?  Why God.

Hello,


We don't offer official Mac support, but we'll try. 
Usually this particular error comes up when 2 or more mods are incompatible with each other, but I'm guessing you don't have mods (yet). 


In which case, I suspect that you may have used the fix for PC, rather than Mac.

hey, I had the same problem and figured it out.
You need a base game which works for mac, the one on G4TW doesn't work. 
Try 'Sims 3 reloaded' in mac games on pirate bay.

I made a post outlining all my steps to successfully install sims 3:
