Can't run Sims 3 Updated to 1.29 !!

Post by PrincesaCereza on Wed 22 Feb 2012, 02:11

Hi!!! First of all, thank you for the job you do. I SWEAR I did
everything (3 times so far!) that the Installation Guide says. But I
still get this screenshot (is in Spanish, but is asking me for some sort
of serial). It seems I'm doing something wrong. I tried with cracks
from this and another site, but it keeps popping. I have the
11.0.84.014017 version installed. In the Sims 3 Icon says 1.29.55.014002

So
I HAVE the lastest update, but I dont know really what Im doing wrong. I
used to have Windows 7 64 bits, but I had to format the PC, and now I
have the 32 bits installed. I'm asking because you specified to put the
files in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts folder. I know is
silly, but I really want to play and dont know what else to do. Thanking
you from the bottom of my soul!!!!!!!!!!!!!

//EDIT

I forgot to say: my BASE GAME is an original CD. All of the expansions
are downloaded, but the base is original. I have never had troubles
before, though

Hmm all i can find on that is it is a version of a base game here http://www6.modthesims.info/d/printthread.php?t=409829&page=28&pp=25

i know this post is worthless though.

Hello,
Which expansions do you have, and did you use this fix?
If you did, can you show us a detailed screenshot of the folder you copied files to during step 13? We need to see the files, file types and date modified.

Hi, Lady ElDi!!! I'm currently at work, but I DID use that last fix. The one from that link. Only thing I can tell you right now is I have ALL expansion packs. Once I arrive home I'll post the screenshot. Could you tell me how ? 'Cause I tried to paste and image but it only says host.


Thank you so much!

Hello,
You can upload your screenshot to a site like imageshack, then post the link here. You probably wont be able to post a link, but if you replace the dots with spaces, we can fix the link for you.

Hello,
Well of that looks just about right so that shouldn't be the problem.
But if it is asking for a registration code, I think you can use the one that came with your base game.
You can also try bypassing the launcher by doubleclicking the TS3W that you see almost on top in your 2nd screenshot.

Hi. Thank you again for your time, but it isn´t working. This 3rd screenshot Im showing you, is the one that, either if I open the launcher or use the TS3W icon, pops up. I translated from SPanish so you can see.

Hello,

Are you sure you installed the expansions? If yes, where did you download them from?

I'm a 100% sure!!! And I couldn't tell you. I have the expansions since a long time ago. But the last ones I downloaded them from here www.thesimstg.com
Is a Brazilian website. I downloaded the last one, Master Suite Stuff and Pets, since I didn't have it.

Hello,

Ah, I'm pretty sure those are modified. Please remove them from your PC and download and install a non-modified version. For your information, all ® Games4theworld versions of The Sims 3 are non-modified.
Be sure to remove all of the modified The Sims 3 games from your system and then download and install a non-modified version of that game.

If you want to be sure everything goes exactly as it should, please follow these instructions:

1. Completely remove The Sims 3 + All expansions, using Your Uninstaller! Pro, which can be downloaded from www.games4theworld.org .
2. Run a CCleaner normal and registry scan on your system. (www.ccleaner.com)
3. Restart your PC.
4. Download all The Sims 3 games you want from www.games4theworld.org .
5. Install the downloaded The Sims 3 games, following these instructions very carefully: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Good luck!

Question! I downloaded all of the games, except for the base one, I have the original. I´m extracting them at the time, so I was wondering (´coz in the Installation Guide, point 2. it says: Install AT LEAST Generations, Pets, Master Suite. And THEN install the other expansions.
I thought you had to install them in ORDER or release.
1 base game, 2 world adventures and so on.

Is this right? Thanks!

Hello,

The installation guides of the downloads are out-dated. You are recommended to follow these up-to-date instructions/order and ignore the installation guides that come with the downloads: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

I really wanted to reply that this finally worked, but it didn´t. I´m going to die over here. I REALLY want to play. I´ll leave the last screenshot. I did EVERTHING EXACTLY (I´m lying, I don´t know if I had the launcher opened in the system tray. I checked it and it didn´t appear, so I cracked it). It starts, but a few seconds, black screen and the screenshot. It just crashes. I downloaded ALL the games from here, except again the base one. And I was following the instructions from that link you gave me. I was asking the expansion thing ´cause that´s what it says. THe blue-highlited one. So I installed after the game base, Town Life Stuff, and THEN all of the others. I had to patch a few times or it didn´t let me keep installing.

Updated on: 25-01-2012

1. Install The Sims 3 base game. (If you've already installed the base game, ignore this step!)
2. Install AT LEAST one of the following expansions: Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff, Generations.
*
3. Install any other expansions you like. Do not apply any cracks (at
all) and when installing Late Night, ignore the Installation Guide,
which says you need to reinstall everything. This means that you do not
need any "# Crack" folder for installing the expansions.

Mm it doesn´t let me "print screen", but it says THe SIms 3 had a problem and is going to shut down. So, I put the original files I download from another website, cause I didnt have the HEAD to copy mine, just in case, and re-cracked it. Still the same.

I REALLY dont know what else to do. REALLY.

Hello,
For future reference: except for the ones found in the #crack folder, the fix consists of original files. So there's no need to fetch original exe's elsewhere.
Can you confirm that your base game is version 1.29?
