Hello,
Your base game, is it also pirated? Are you able to play it?

Hello,
How did it go with the update? The fix only works with game version 1.29, you may want to make sure your base game is that version.

Hello,
Did you try the patch as part of the fix? Its possible that your base game isn't recognized because it has been cracked. The fix solves that issue because it has the original game files the patch needs to be compatible.

in the ultimate fix, it says i have to download the sims 3 pets from the link. but i cant download from piratebay cos i think its blocked. i tried using the fix for the base game without installing the sims 3 pets as according to the 2nd step but my launcher just crashes. i tried the patch too, says the same thing, no sims 3 installed

Hello,
The fix will probably work with the Pets version you have. The fix doesn't work with just the base game because the crack is incompatible. Here's what you do:
Open the fix and go to the folder called base game, and copy the 2 files in that folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.
Download and use the manual patch, it should work.
Now, install Pets. Since your game is now version 1.29, you shouldn't be prompted to patch the game prior to installing this expansionpack.
After it finishes installing, go to the fix again and this time, copy the 2 files from the #crack folder to the same folder you copied files to before. You should get asked if you want to replace this with that, click yes.

Hello,

This is a known issue. Could you first tell me, where you got the base game from and how?

Hello,

Ah, that explains everything. Those DVD's sold in shops are modified 9 out of 10 times, which means your PC won't recognize them as a separate (The Sims 3) game. You'll need to uninstall the version you have now and install a non-modified version of the game.
All ® Games4theworld versions of The Sims 3 are non-modified.
