Sims3 game crashes in buy/build mode.[SOLVED]

Post by Moonshadow on Sat 14 Jan 2012, 12:12

I know... I know, there is a plethora of information on this subject in the forum. I have looked through the majority of them and it comes to no avail. Although I face the same in-game issues, I feel as though my problem is generating from an alternate source. You see, as I was applying the Ultimate fix and toward the end it told me to update the game through the Sims 3 launcher. So I started up the Sims 3 launcher using the Sims 3Launcher starter application, instead of the Sims3 icon on my desktop. As I tried to update it said I was already running the latest version. So I applied the contents of the #Crack folder into my Sims3 base game directory. As I started up the game through the Sims3 desktop icon, the launcher appeared, notifying me of the latest update. I started to download the update, and toward the end of what seemed like ten minutes, I was gifted an error notice, as seen in on of the pictures. Eager to play the game, I applied the #crack anyway and hoped for the best. And it works...until you enter buy or build mode....help please. Also, I receive an error on start-up, seen below.

The patch error:

Hello,
The crack you applied requires the latest update to work. Since you couldn't update through the launcher (which is quite common), use this manual patch in stead.
You'll have to reapply the entire fix though, since you already copied the crack. When you get to step 13, execute the manual patch instead of opening the launcher to update.

So re- apply the entire fix step, by step? or apply the manual patch, then re-apply the manual patch?

Im sorry for another question, but thanks for that.

Hello,
Since you already tried the crack, you should reapply the entire fix, or the update may not recognize your game. Just apply all the steps, but when you get to the part where you're asked to open the launcher to update, don't. Just execute the manual patch you downloaded. When its finished, copy the files from the #crack folder to the right folder and your game should work.
