Please help! No Solutions work.

Post by mxzh on Fri 02 Mar 2012, 16:17

Hello, first of all just want to say thanks for providing all these fixes etc. But I have a massive problem. I spent the last 2 days installing and uninstalling Sims 3 and all the Exp. packs. At first I only had the Base Game which worked perfectly. Then I downloaded "High End Loft Stuff", "Late Night", "Generations", and "Pets". I tried every available fix and solution. Nothing works. When I'm at the loading screen, when it's about to finish it crashes and says "Sims 3 has stopped working". I think it's something to do with Pets. I just saw your "Pets (fixed)" file and downloading that right now, hopefully that works, because I'm seriously frustrated after 2 days of complete failure.

Thanks in advance.

*EDIT:* Just uninstalled Pets and started the game (was Generations), and I still get the error. Probably because I didn't completely uninstall, but I'm gonna do that once I finish downloading above mentioned file.

Hello,
If you just uninstalled Pets, your game should load so I don't think this issue has to do with Pets.
The "fixed" Pets version has to do with a missing file that was needed to install the game, so if you installed it before, there's no reason why the "fixed" version would do you any good. But lets think.
What kind of base game are you using?
Prior to installing the expansions, did you uninstall the base game at any point?
Did you use this fix?
Are you using any mods/cc?
What is your game version? You can find out as shown in the image below.

I downloaded the base game from Piratebay, it was extremezone's version. (razor1911).

I had the basegame, which worked without any problems, then installed Pets, which didn't work. Since then I found your site and the fixes. Yes I tried the ultimate fix and it didn't work.
No mods or custom content.
Version is 1.31.118.015002

Hello,
That base game will work fine, but your game version will not, unfortunately. The fix is compatible with game version 1.29 and I doubt there are any cracks for 1.31 out there at the moment.
You have 2 options, either wait until Showtime is released and compatible cracks will be available, or reinstall your entire game, taking care not to patch past 1.29 and applying the fix.

How would I not patch it? Whenever I install an expansion pack it asks me to update, and also where it says update from the Launcher, maybe it's cause of that that it updates to 1.31 instead of 1.29?

Hello,
The latest expansion requires patch 1.29 and when it came out, the new fix was released. This 1.31 patch is new, EA released it a couple of days ago and it will show up in the launcher when you're applying the fix.
Not patching isn't difficult, simply neglect to install EADM/ORIGIN and use the manual patch instead of the launcher to update.

Hi,

I've been following this guide all day, and last night. I have all the Sims 3 expansion packs downloaded, and of course, the base game.

I' couldn't even tell you how many times i've tried to get this working by uninstalling and re-installing the game. I then saw this thread, and uninstalled everything again, then reinstalled while i was waiting to see if you could get your game working.

So i did everything. Followed the Ultimate fix guide, and replaced step 11 with your manual patch you posted here.

Still having an error message appear saying "The base game is incompatible with the expansion packs..." I honestly have no idea what else to try.

And yes, my base game is the same version as mentioned here--Razor 1911

Please respond A.S.A.P with a way to fix this, before i blow my brains out!!!

Thanks,

Robyn

Nope, it's a fresh install.

Also added it to my DEP, and running it in Windows 95 Compatibility mode.

Hello,
I don't recommend using DEP or win95 compatibility mode to prevent crashing, only to cure it. Some people got problems after making these changes you see.

Disabled DEP and the Compatibilty modes and it seems to work now, thanks Very Happy

One question though, I downloaded Master Suite overnight, can I just install it or do I have to reinstall everything?

Hello,

You should be able to just install it. Install the game itself, but do not apply any more cracks.
Install the game and run it too see if it works. Good luck! (Also, DO NOT update the game when prompted to)
