Sims 3 installation- error

Post by floffy21 on Tue 24 Jan 2012, 12:18

Prob the wrong forum to post this, but cant seem to post in any of the other ones.


I have installed the game 2 days ago, but kept getting an error when loading saying something about it being a wrong version or something, i was able to kick continue but was warned it would prob crash.

i got to enter the game make a char, play a bit, but everytime i tried to buy furniture or move something around it crashed.

i then reinstalled but now after inserting mounted disk 1 i keep getting an error saying corrupted file fullbuild1.package

i am sure this is why it didnt work before when installed it.

any way of fixing this?


sincerly
Camilla

Hello,
Did you install any expansionpacks, and did you also use the fix? Which version is you base game? Find out like this:

The error comes up when installing the base game, so only way i can get further than install is by ignoring the fullbuild1.package error, but that results in the game crashing over and over again....


i did install it on my husbands computer aswell, when tried to, but got same error.

we have now found a new version on the game that seems to work, but the one we downloaded from here(the piratebay) just wont install.

gonna try and add the expancions when i finish the installation, so problem is kinda solved..i hope

Hello,
It sounds like a problem that was created when you extracted the files. But since you found a version that works, your problem is solved. Please let us know if you ever have other questions or problems though, we're happy to help.
