I need help in downloading the Ultimate Fix![SOLVED]

Post by noelleangela_53 on Sun 22 Jan 2012, 07:07

Hi! I finished downloading the Sims 3 Generations 3 days ago which was from games4world. i followed the instructions given and i believe i did the installation correctly. as i tried to launch the game, there was a message that said "unable to start: initialization error 0x024e424f".

i searched for a solution in your website and found out that i have to install this ultimate fix that should fix almost everything. it was in this site that i got the instructions: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems.

i clicked the "click here to download the fix(pc)" and was directed to the exact image shown below the page of that site. and then next thing i know, i was downloading the "ilivid download manager". i don't know what to after that. i thought i was supposed to download the fix, but this download manager appeared out of thin air. what should i do? i don't know if i was doing the right thing. please help!
?

//EDIT

so i tried doing it again. i clicked the "click here..." and the "skip ad" stuff and the "slower download". now what appeared was the error 404: page not found: The file or page you tried to access is no longer accessible. should i be a premium user to download the fix???

//EDIT

i think things just got complicated. i'm working it out now. i downloaded it using the other mirror (media fire). it's still downloading now. i hope i will be successful!

Hello,
No you don't need to be a premium downloader to get the fix. There's probably a problem with the website itself.
Good to hear the mirror link is working. If you have any problems, please let us know, but please edit your post rather than replying to it if you haven't received any other replies yet, thank you.

i got it working! thank you! i was able to play the sims 3 generations. Very Happy but, i encountered another problem. Sad i can play the game, but every time i place something (from the buy mode or the inventory) in my house, the game just crashes. before i could launch the game, a warning message appears. it said "It looks like you have installed an unofficial game modification that does not match your current version of the sims 3. We recommend that you either uninstall these game versions or get updated versions of them—otherwise you may experience crashes or significant bugs. Do you want to quit or continue?"

of course i just clicked continue. and yes, i experienced crashes. i was just wondering, i don't have a sims town life stuff. but i have the ambitions, late night, fast lane stuff, outdoor living stuff, generations, and pets. i got the generations from you. but the pets, i got it from another uploader. do you think that is the cause of the problem?

oh, and one thing. every time i try to update the game to the version the ultimate fix provides, it just doesn't. at the end of the very very long wait, it said that there was an interruption and that there's an error in updating. i think the problem stemmed from that one. is it because my sims 3 pets isn't from you guys?

Hello,

No, the Pets from another uploader is not the issue.
If you don't apply the Fix correctly (Read: follow all steps, including the updating), it won't work at all. In order to apply the Fix correctly, you MUST upload the game to the latest version. I recommend using THIS manual patch in combination with the Fix. It should work fine.

Let me know if the problem still persists.
