Can't open the game

Post by maquisl on Wed 11 Apr 2018, 20:32

Hello! Every time I try to open the game, a message saying "no game disc found. Please insert x game disc before proceeding"  pops up and it wont let me open it.
At the beginning the error said "University Life game disc" so I uninstalled to check if I made a mistake during the installation, but it didn't work and now it says "Seasons", so I guess the EP are not the problem. Any idea what the problem may be?  Help

I re-installed the game like 3 times, followed every step but I still get the same error, the only thing that I didn't do was the crack step on every installation (I followed the main site's up-to-date instructions, not the instructions included on every file). Only once I was able to install the game well and play.
Thanks in advance

What patch version is your game on? If all the EPs and SPs are from us then you need at least patch 1.67 installed in order for the latest "crack" to work.
You can find your patch version on the lower left corner of the Sims 3 Launcher.

You only need to apply the latest crack once, after you have installed all the EPs and/or SPs you want. Also check that you installed the latest crack to the correct directory . . . C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin (for x64 systems) or C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin (for x86 systems).

The only time you might need to re-apply the crack is if you install more EPs/SPs later. Then just copy the cracked files back to the install directory before launching a game.
