New issue: " Service initialization Failed " After applying crack.

Post by hemmymomma on Sat 18 Feb 2012, 07:06

Ok, I have been at this for 3 days and I am getting discouraged. I downloaded and installed the sims 3 reloaded and the ultimate fix. Game works perfect....SO I download expansion packs night life and generations ( still working on downloaded the others ) I extract the file with keka. I click on the installer and nothing happens at all. So then I downloaded CrossOver thinking it would run it correctly. It starts to open but then it says that sims 3 needs to be installed to use. I am just at a loss. I just downloaded stuffit...I am too tired to even think about what to do next. I'm not entirely sure if I need it or not. Please please help me !!! This is plaguing me while I sleep ! lol I just need to figure this out. Thank you SOOOO much !!!!! - Shannon


EDIT- I have a new issue now. I was getting the insert disk error when starting the game. So I went back and reapplied the mac fix. After that the game opened and acted like it was going to start but then crashed and I got the error " service initialization failed ". Help ( new screenshot attached )

Also, I Only have Sims 3 ( base game ), World adventures, High end loft, and Generations installed at the moment. I can't get the others to download Sad

Hey, I'm no Admin, but did you read Dale's guide on how to make expansions work for mac?


http://games4theworld.org/Guides/The_Sims_3_MAC_Guide.pdf

Just scroll down and follow the Late night instructions.

And install generations first. Smile

Hello,

Are you sure you didn't use any modified version of the base game?

I read his guide after I had installed according to the installation instructions that was with it. I tried installing generations first and it did the same thing. Then I read somewhere that I would need to install late night first. So I am not sure which is correct. Maybe I just need to uninstall and start from scratch according to Dales guide. Thank you !

I don't think so; I downloaded it right here from games4theworld.

//EDIT

You now now that I think about it, I didn't download it from here. I
searched it on Pirate bay and got it there. I only assumed that it was
the same one.

Hello,

Don't download our version of the base game for Mac, since it doesn't work on Mac's.
I recommend looking for a Mac specific version and installing that one.

Well I figured it out somehow ( and can't remember how for the other expansions ) by messing with mounting a disk image and changing the region number. It all installed but when I hit play it says I need to insert the world adventures. Not sure what to do now.... Thanks for your help !

//EDIT

I don't know what I am doing wrong.. I just can't seem to get any of
this right. I can only get a few of the expansion packs installed by
mounting as a disk image. but it only worked for generations, world
adventures, and high end loft. but the game won't even play. It just
says service initilization error. When I try to install the other
Expansions via disk image the same way I did the others it just says "
integrity of installer not verified ". I'm so frustrated.
