Sims 3 downloads

Post by LCDelaney on Tue 13 Jul 2010, 04:55

I've followed each instruction step by step, I've been working on this
for days, and every time I finish downloading ambitions everything
downloads correctly and when I go to start the game is crashes and I get a message
saying:

"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 modifications or get update versions of them - otherwise you may experience crashes and significant bugs. Do you want to quit?"


and then it gives me the option to quit or continue, when I click continue it crashes. I've restarted my computer and the game and I've reinstalled all the games repeatedly, I've clicked refresh updates and it says that my game is up to date, I've read through some other posts and I didn't really see anyone with the same problem, so I'm assuming I did something wrong at some point. Also I noticed that in my Sims 3 launcher the Ambitions and World Adventures icon on the lower left hand side are bright whereas the Sims 3 icon isn't, could that be part of the problem?

Please help!

It didn't work. I got the same message, I tried it twice. I didn't mount the game, I burned it to 2 separate cds, could that be the issue?

Well, it's easier to Mount them. But did you apply the Cracks at all? (And then take out the discs, because you don't need those when you apply a NoCD crack)

But can't you play the Game at all?

I'm really not sure if I took out the CD, I may have tried that. However I followed the walkthrough and I mounted the games, I'm downloading them again and hopefully it works.

No I couldn't play the game, it would just give me the message I stated earlier and if I clicked continue it would just crash.


Hopefully it works with the mounting.

Hello,

Well, this is an odd problem / error I never heard of. If you don't know how to Mount, just read our free Mounting Guide on www.games4theworld.org under "All our Downloads".

Hi I have the same problem and I have followed everything the installation guides say to the letter. Even when I try to install any downloads it gives me that message.

Hello,


Have you used any mods / hacks / cc (custom content) in the Game? And, can you run the Game at all? (Does the Game works or you can't play at all?)

Well I did have another version of the sims that I got from a different torrent that I removed. The trap effects and other such things stopped working after I downloaded awesome mod. I decided to remove everything and start again with your torrent and so far the game won't start because of that message. Oh and I am trying to install the downloaded cc from the sims site which gives that message as well.

Please don't edit, but delete your old post and place a new, updated, one, so I get notified when it's updated.

Hello,

There's currently no fix for this error. Neither does EA have a fix for it. You'll have to wait for a fix, sorry.

Hello,

No, this is a problem caused by an EA patch, so we'll all have to wait for a fix.
