You could download Showtime but i would also download the Updated Fix and apply all the new fixes just in case. I applied every single fix and my game didnt give me any problems

Hello,
Actually, if you managed to install Showtime all you'd have to do is apply the crack that came with Showtime. The files in the fix are original files for the most part, that you need to overwrite any cracks you may have used in the past before you can update. The actual crack (#crack folder) is the exact same one from Showtime, so if you have that EP from G4TW, you don't need the fix. The fix is for people who don't want Showtime, but do want to install the latest patch.

A lot of compatibility issues will be caused by outdated mods, so remove the entire mods folder from My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 and try the game. Alternatively, you can also remove the The Sims 3 folder in its entirety by copying it to (for example) your desktop an removing it from My Documents\Electronic Arts. This will also effectively take care of bad cache files since the game generates a new The Sims 3 folder when you start the game.
If it works, you can simply copy your saves folder from the The Sims 3 folder you copied to the desktop and paste it in the new one.

Yea that's true but if your like me the game wouldn't start until after I put in all the fixes. Don't know if its the same for everyone but that solved my problem

Ok, got it. Thanks Sugarbomb and Lady Eldi.

Shame about the mods. Everytime I get one EA comes out with a way to break'em with new updates.

Hello,
The mods should work.
I have a bunch of (updated) Nraas mods and am about to test them in game.

Hello,
Consider combining them in a few larger packages, that has been known to really speed up the game. I've recently posted a link to the tutorial and the program you need, I'll go ahead and fetch it.
Well I can't seem to find it at the moment but I will post a new link.

Edit: There you go http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t3840-combining-cc-in-package-format#24919
