A misstep?

Post by SinisterGirl on Mon 18 Sep 2017, 23:19

Game loads fine, and everything looks great but there is a prompt asking me to connect online so that it can download the Vampire pack. It shows that I "have" it but that it just needs to be downloaded/installed.

I believe the problem came from Step 7. When I installed the Toddler update, I didn't see two game folders so I thought that perhaps I didn't have to rename the Game folder. (I went with the 'literal' picture showing two game folders, one renamed. Obviously that was a mistake and I should have renamed it and then the new game folder would have appeared as the picture showed.) 

My question is, how can I fix this? Do I just redo from step 6 with the rest of the expansions even though everything is applied or is there a quicker, more simpler fix?

Thanks so much.

Hello and welcome to the Forum @SinisterGirl,

The safest way to exclude any errors on that end is the following. Re-apply Toddlers/Vampires/Bowling. Then delete or rename your "Game"-folder again now (!!). After which you re-apply the next DLCs in the appropriate order: Parenthood -> Fitness -> Toddlers Stuff.

Good luck!

Good job!
