Sims 3 fix doesn´t work

Post by Imoen on Fri 13 Jan 2012, 21:51

Hi guys,


i just downloaded the sims 3 Ultimate fix and did everything what i´ve been told in the INSTALLATION GUIDE:
I have the Expansions: Ambitions, Late night, Town Stuff, Outdoor Stuff, also the pets an Generations.

I putted the Fix into the base game and also the fixes for each expansio in the expanion game/bin folder as adviced. I wanted to update the game with the launcher, as point 13 advied ->

"13. Now, open the The Sims 3 launcher and navigate to the "Update" -tab. Choose "Refresh". If a new update is shown, install it. Now you should have got the latest version of the game."

There was an error...sims 3 should be updated and it started to update with origin and after that, it told me it was not possible to update sims 3.

I thought "okay, hum" putted the Fix of "Pets & Town Life Stuff & Generations" into the C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin
and wanted to start the game....but now just sims 3 & pets does work and all my builded houses and families are erased Sad

What did I wrong??

Hello,

First of all, you must update your game for the Fix to work. Please use this manual patch: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v129-fix-manual-patch
and then continue the steps from the Fix.

HI, I have the following expansions :-
1. Town Life Stuff
2. Generations
3. Pets
4. World Adventures
5. Ambitions

I did exactly as mentioned in the forum and applied the ultimate fix. The problem is that the launcher is behaving weirdly and when i start the game the launcher stops responding . Also an update of the game is available but when i try installing that update the launcher again stops responding. Please help

Hello,
You can update manually instead of with the launcher, then continue with the fix.
If the launcher continues to act weird, you can always bypass it to play the game.
For future reference: Its always best to open your own topic so its easier for us to keep track of individual problems.

Okay, i updated manually and it worked - Thank you Smile

Now my first question: Is it possible to add new packages like maybe "late night" to the game, after using the ultimate fix?

And today I have a Ingame-problem: Sims 3 started and i was at the maiinmenueu, i wanted to start my favourite town with my family...and there was an error "bad problems with sunset valley.sims 3, please restart the application. What happened Sad((

Hello,
You can easily add expansionpacks after applying the fix. But depending on which one it is, you'll need to reapply the crack. This goes for: Generations, Town Life Stuff and Pets.
Its possible that your save game is corrupted. Try the game without mods/cc first, if you have any. If it still wont work, you can go to your saves folder and find the sunsetvalley.sims3.backup folder, rename your bad save and loose the .backup part in this folder.

Hi,

i tried to find that save at the sunsetvalley.sims2 folder, but there are no saves called like my family.

There is also another problem, i installed a lot of expansions, but there didn´t appear any new towns Sad

How can i fix this? I wanted to play the late-night town...

Hello,
Your save game isn't named after your family, its named after the neighbourhood you were playing, or, a name for the save game you've given it if you selected "save as ...".
Are you sure there are no new neighbourhoods? Just start a new game and pick the town you like.
