Sims 3 Pets - No Disk?[SOLVED]

Post by Tammyara on Wed 01 Feb 2012, 23:06

I all, I'm new ^^

I'm experiencing problems starting up the sims 3 pets (the fixed version). The installation process went swimmingly, I dragged and dropped the cracks into the base sims 3 game bin (on desktop as, for some reason, I don't have the bin in my sims 3 folder. Oh well). Dragging and dropping them into the icon on the desktop worked for ambitions, though, so I don't see any reason as to why it didn't work for this WhatDidUJustCallMe?

I followed all the instructions in the installation guide and it's like this for all the others I've tried like High End Loft Stuff among others.

Help? Smile

Oh, and thanks so much for the sims download stuff <3
Really - it's great what you're doing! Very Happy

//EDIT

Oh, and if it makes any difference at all, I bought the base game and also the late night expansion.

Hello,
Welcome to the forum.
I'm a little confused here as to why your game\bin would be located on the desktop. If you installed The Sims 3 and its expansions to the default location, the bin you're looking for is in C:\Program Files\Electronic arts\The sims 3\game\bin.
I have a feeling you've copied the crack to the files needed to install the games instead.

But I'd downloaded The Sims 3 Ambitions expansion and coped and pasted it there and the Ambitions works absolutely fine :S
And when I hover over the icon it says Location I:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin

//EDIT

Argh... I just tried installing Generations so I could try the ultimate fix thing, but even that says no disk found, so I can't use the ultimate fix.

Hello,
Can you post a screenshot of the folder you copied the crack to?

Sorry I took so long to reply. Preliminary exams. Sad

Thanks for replying, btw Smile

It's the icon right above Little Foot.

Edit 1: Sorry! I thought I could just copy and paste. Yes, I'm a complete noob with technology and stuff. Noob
Here's the picture!

Hello,
Can you open the folder you copied the crack to, and show us the folder?

Lady ElDi, I don't have a bin folder. That's what I copied the crack to (the one in the screenshot). Here's a link to a picture of my Sims folder. I have *no* bin. Sad
http://i44.servimg.com/u/f44/17/24/23/47/untitl10.jpg

But the icon says that it's the bin when I hover over it.
And I've searched for the game bin with the windows search tool to no avail. Noob

It's getting quite frustrating. I managed to download Fast Lane stuff, though. But I'm guessing that's because I had to copy the cracks to the expansion folder and not the base games. (I just copied it to the Fast Lane Stuff icon on my desktop and it worked)

Hello,
That's the folder in Documents and Settings, what about your install directory, did you make any changes when you installed the base game, or did it install to the default location? In that case, you should look for it in C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3.

I don't get what you mean... I just let it do it's own thing, so I didn't change anything. I don't have a C:\ drive or whatever it is. My sims automatically saved to drive I:\ and i've searched multiple times using the I:\ one.

I'm so confused. Sad

Help

Thanks for trying to help.

Edit:
I have an idea, but I won't be able to try it out until tonight (as it's now morning). Would it be possible to avoid having to use the cracks by mounting it with powerISO? Now that I think about it my ambitions is still mounted, but I heard you didn't need to mount them now... or do the cracks do other things, too?

Hello,
Did you by any chance buy your base game online?
Mounting isn't going to help.

No, I have the disk, but I used a G4TW code as I lost mine a while ago

Edit:
I think I've FINALLY found my game bin. I added the cracks, clicked replace and started the game in the sims 3 launcher. The black screen came up and the sims 3 minimised and said that I'm using an unofficial version of the game and that it could cause problems. I just clicked continue. Will it matter? And is there a way not to get the message to come up?

Dangnabbit. I tried loading it up just there but now it's closing down while it's loading up with an error message saying that an error has occurred and the game needs to close giving me the options to send or not send an error report. Sad

//EDIT

I just tried re-installing it and it still won't work!

Okay, I'll give it a shot, but my game's already at version 1.29 and it's also a legal disk copy. Will that matter?

I can see that! Very Happy
Thanks so much - problem solved. Everything works brilliantly!
Again, thanks!

//EDIT


A new problem arose... Arghhh!!

The
sims suddenly closed gameplay and a windows message popped up saying
that it needed to close and gave me an option to send or to not send an
error report.

Since then, the sims 3 pets symbol on the launcher
is GONE and now whenever I try to play the game an error message just
comes up saying this:



//EDIT

OMG! I just uninstalled the sims 3 pets so I could play it again. My game doesn't work anymore!!! :'(

Please help Sad

Admin edit: Do not double-post, but use the "Edit" button on your message instead! Thank you.
