Ambitions ruined my game!

Post by asc411 on Thu 13 Jul 2017, 02:29

Hello,
I had all of the expansions and stuff packs except for ambitions. I played perfectly fine without them but I wanted to get it so I downloaded it from here. I downloaded it and installed correctly, or so I thought. When I opened the launcher, it said i need to update my game. It also said I was on version 0.0.0.0 and I only had the ambitions and the high end loft stuff. Please help me. I want to play my family again.
Thanks,
asc411

Your family should still be safely stored in Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3
Version 0.0.0.0 means that the base game is no longer recognised and should be installed again.

Before uninstalling/re-installing, I would suggest trying to re-do steps #2, #4 and #5 from the guide:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

A.k.a. (re-) apply the 1.67 manual patch first, then (re-) apply the latest available TS3 Ultimate fix. If you cannot access the download links, temporarily disable your adblockers.

If you already downloaded the 1.67 manual patch + Ultimate fix in the past already, you do NOT need to re-download them though. Just re-apply them.
