Requires a software update?[SOLVED]

Post by iamgamersjc on Fri 17 Feb 2012, 20:22

Hi Games 4 The World.

I have a question, just a few minutes ago. I downloaded a file from the "The Sims 3 Store Updates". It's actually the Ford Focus Thrill Seeker set. So what I did is the standard op., put in the Downloads folder and install it via the Sims3Launcher. After "installing" a message appears.

"Requires a software update. Please make sure your games has the latest software updates."

What do you think should I do?

Kudos to the entire Games 4 The World staff.

EDIT: What I have is...

The Sims 3 > The Sims 3 - WA > The Sims 3 High-End Loft Stuff > The Sims 3 - Ambitions

Hi Admin. It still doesn't work, but I'm not stopping. Gonna do it all over again. Smile A message appears that I have installed a unmodified thing.

I did steps 3 to 7. Just installed Fast Lane this morning. Smile I have a question. Because I have The Sims 3 > The Sims 3 WA > The Sims 3 High-End Loft Stuff > The Sims 3 Ambitions > The Sims 3 Fast Lane
Do I still need to copy the crack for every expansion that I have or just do it for the most recent version (only do steps 7 for The Sims 3 Fast Lane)?

And I don't have an internet connection in my room (broken router, hihi) so I think what I'm gonna do is download the manual patch instead.

Thanks admin and Games 4 The World! Smile

Hello,

Yes, it's always recommend to use the manual patch anyway.
Please read the Fix' instructions VERY carefully and notice that you need AT LEAST one of the following expansions for the Fix to work: Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Generations, Town Life Stuff.

Hello,

You're welcome!
Yes, you'll have to apply the Ultimate Fix at the end, when you finished installing all the games you want.

I'll keep this topic open for you; let us know the final result. Good luck!

Hi Games 4 The World / and mr. Admin.

Guess what? It worked like a charm. Smile

I tried it as soon as I got [downloaded] all the expansion packs and stuff packs right after ambitions, except The Sims 3 Master Suite

The Sims 3But when I installed Pets, the freezing problem happened. Until I did the ultimate fix. Doing it step by step. And it worked! Now I can also install custom content from The Sims 3 Store. Smile

Thank you so much mr. Admin and Games 4 The World!

Wait, I have a question. Would there be any conflict if I installed the ultimate fix first followed by The Sims 3 Master Suite?

Thanks again Games 4 The World!!! Smile

Hello,
You can install Master Suite stuff without reapplying the crack, just don't use the crack that comes with Master Suite stuff.
In the event that a problem occurs after installing, just reapply the crack from the fix you downloaded.

Hi Game Master and Games 4 The World. What I did was I basically re-installed everything. Just a personal preference [OC on some cases] on my side, hehe.

The game works fine now. Thank you so much! I can't wait for your next game release. Smile

Again, kudos to the Games 4 The World team and more power!
