Can't install Games4TheWorld World Adventures.[SOLVED]

Post by tommyparker on Sun 08 Jan 2012, 21:51

I'm having trouble installing World Adventures. I've installed all other packs except this one. Admittedly when I first attempted I hadn't read the Installation Guide correctly and made some errors. I didn't change the SKU to 2 and I ran the patch without changing it to C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3. I am unable to read the patch because it look like this [/url] so I can't read the directions and I'm pretty stuck. When I attempt to run Sims3_1.2.7.00002_from_1.0.631.00002.exe it gives me dfc-gorilla error Invalid File Found. Completely stuck here, could somebody please help?

P.S. I'd like to add that I've installed every other pack and they all work to perfection. You guys truly are great at what you do.

P.S.S Ok big problem now. I seem to have broken my entire game now as when I open the launcher, it says "There was an error during startup. Please see the Log for more details" so yeah...please help =/

Hello,
That doesn't look good.
Try this: Get the latest ultimate fix, you'll find the link in my signature. Use winRAR to extract, then start applying the fix according to its #Installation Guide. Read carefully.
After applying the fix, you'll have restored all the original files, and patched your game to version 1.29. If you get an error during the update, try this manual patch.
Now, try installing World Adventures again. Disregard the #Installationguide, it has become obsolete. Only change the SKU if you need to, if you don't get a region error during installation, you don't have to bother with it. Don't apply the crack.
After it finishes installing, try starting the game.
Please let us know the result. If your game is still broken, we'll help you fix it.

WA installed but this seems to be in vein because the launcher still wont open. I redid the Ultimate Fix and am still getting the same Error message. Maybe it has something to do with one of the Stuff Packs? I believe one of them involved me manually patching my game to 1.19 or something. I haven't ran it with the stuff packs so I don't know if they are the problem. But all the expansions worked prior to today

Hello,
Did you use the 1.29 update after that?

Hello,

Actually, it's normal that the patcher looks like that.
But, you do not need it at all, due to the new updates. The instructions for installing the games have slightly changed. Please read them here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Note that for World Adventures you may completely skip the "# Crack" folder. (Same for all other The Sims 3 games)

I got WA installed and I downloaded the manual 1.29 patch. Got the launcher back up but now im getting the infamous "No Game Disc Found! Please Insert the Sims 3 Pets Game Disc before proceeding" error haha. But this one should be an easy fix correct?

Hello,
Yes, get the fix I mentioned earlier, and copy the crack to the right location.
