How to get NRAAS Integration to work?

Post by weirdicat on Mon 30 Apr 2018, 06:35

Okay so I am desperate to use Master Controller Integration because it will allow me to use compact mode in CAS anytime and that will help me speed up CAS, but I've recently learned that Master Controller Integration will make your game crash if you have pirated content in your Sims 3 game, which, is sadly the case for me, most of my expansion packs are from Games4theworld
But I'm not sure if some genius already has the solution for my problem or if I'm just stuck. Help?

I've been using NRAAS' mods for years with no problems on both my legit and cracked games. Just make sure to use the Master Controller for your patch level.

Welcome to the Forum @weirdicat,

Just out of interest. May I ask who told you the following/where you 'learned' this?

@weirdicat wrote:(...), but I've recently learned that Master Controller Integration will make your game crash if you have pirated content in your Sims 3 game.

The statement that "mods don't work (properly) in pirated games" is a common misconception spread by useful idiots and/or people on the payroll of EA and related companies. We all should be careful about what we believe. The effect is augmented by being repeated and spread to the various subreddits/Twitter-accounts/Facebook-groups/major Sims-Forums. What they intend to do is obviously to discourage people from pirating stuff. And since the average person does not necessarily have the technical knowledge to get behind these things, these scare-off stories tend to be successful, unfortunately.

The truth is: mods do not "care" about whether a game has been cracked or not. Mods modify default game functions, they don't care about the DRM of a game. And to the best of my knowledge I have never heard of a mod, at least not in The Sims, which requires the game to be legit.

It's also worth noting in this context, again, that you should only seek Support about pirated stuff, on sites which support piracy. Simpler said: never ever mention that your game is pirated, unless you know for sure that the site you are posting on condones piracy.

Edit: if none of that applies to your case, and your game just happens to crash, see here for possible tweaks:

If you use a version of the mod that works for your particular game version (most likely that's going to be 1.67), then indeed you should be fine.  Very Happy

Hello,


I've been using a number of Nraas mods for years myself, including MasterController and its modules. Your game might crash, but it's not more likely to crash with or without mods, though it could be argued that some mods reduce the chance of crashes, because they fix a number of bugs in the game.


There are a lot of people who despise piracy, and they will tell you these lies to make you think the pirated game will even wreck your computer. While it can be dangerous for your system to install pirated stuff, you can be sure that the software and games that we provide you with, are always 100% safe.

I learned this from an NRAAS Moderator after I contacted them about my problem. If it has nothing to do with the expansion packs I installed then I don't know what the problem could be, I've done everything I can to fix it, but it still crashes. There is one thing like, my expansion packs aren't fully up to date so there may be an incompatibility issue there. Thank you for the information though.

What patch level is your game at? 1.67? (Origin Only) 1.69? Look at the lower left corner of the game launcher to see.

If its lower than 1.67 then download the [url=akamai.cdn.ea.com/eadownloads/u/f/sims/sims3/patches/TS3_1.67.2.0240xx_update.exe]1.67 Full Update[/url] and then apply Our Fix. (Note: This is for the 1.69 patch but it should work with 1.67. If it doesn't let us know and I will upload a 1.67 G4TW fix.)
