The Sims 3 no neighborhoods, cant uninstall

Post by meowkawaii on Fri 09 Mar 2012, 09:58

Hokay, so.

I downloaded

-base

-late night

-generations

-ambitions

-pets

-high end loft

-town life

- and master suite.

Followed all the instructions, updated game, installed cracks, ultimate fix, go to play game, and it says this:



So i click continue. The game loads normally, then it comes to the choose neighborhood screen, where i encounter this problem :



I can't continue from that point, since there are no neighborhoods to select from. WTH?

So, I assumed I must have misplaced a file along the way. So I go to uninstall the games, and THIS comes up:



So I can't get the games to work, AND i can't uninstall them. greaaaat.

So first, how do I uninstall the games, and second, what did I do wrong in the first place ?

*Please note that I don't have any mods or custom content installed

Your help is appreciated, I really want to play ! :'(

thank you ~*

EDIT: also wanted to add that i updated the game to the latest version, and used the brand new working fix. If only I could at least uninstall this stuff ;_;

Hello,
Can you check your launcher for me, to have a look at your base game version, because I think it might be version 1.32. EA has released this patch today.If it is 1.32, that explains your problems. Admin will update the fix as soon as he can.

Besides the update giving serious bugs almost viral you needed to update all your MODS to the latest version. When you get that You have installed a non official modification, you do not continue it breaks you game and is usually caused by conflicting MODS. Since you are not able to unistall you will have to do a force uninstall
http://www.iobit.com/advanceduninstaller.html

using this tool, in the options select advance and to do a thorough cleaning of your registry. It will check that there are no itms left behind. Start with the base game and then the EPs, the tool works better one a a time. Before you uninstall do a backup of My documents EA files, which you will need to replace your saves etc. When you reinstall, do manual patches to the latest stable patch. I would hold off on installing Showtime at this point, until EA resolves all the issues with ther patches 1.31 and 1.32. Then apply the lates ultimate fix, following the instructions step by step. Hope this helps, please confirm

No, do not worry about it, it also happened to me and to many others, that is the reason I am able to be of help my own and collective experience. The only difference was that I already knew what caused the screen to pup up, so, I took measures before it got worst. But we will solve your problem exhausting all available resources.

Thank you ! I'm still trying to uninstall this stuff ...
On a different note, I don't really plan on downloading show time ... I just don't really get what makes it different from ambitions except you can be a magician and a dj ... And also f*** Katy perry way to ruin my favorite game -_-

But can I still install master suite ?

Ok, I see you got it!, Great!, now let's get to work.
1. Click on browse and go to Computer> C > Program Files>Electronic arts>The Sims 3 , since I do not know your operating system I would use mine and you adapt. All the rest of your EPs will be there, so do the same for each one.
Check list: 1.You backup your my documents Electronic Arts folder to a different place under a different name. 2.You have the instalation stuff to replace every game back. 3 You have the latest copy of the ultimate fix and 4 You have manual patches for you base game and expansions. The manual patch comulative for the base game up to the patch you want to be on like let's say 1.29 ok.

On a side note Katy Perry did not cause this to your game, it was the patches to prepare for the EP. Now you will always wait before applying any patch; don't rush things, give it a couple of days or a week, so that you get from the community what it is really all about and if you can live or not with the bugs. Best of luck and keep us posted.

I understood, lol, you will be able to install this expansion, but for now is better to wait until they fix this patch issue. Hey! What really won me over was the darn pool table and dominoes! lol

Alright so I screencapped to make this easier for both of us.
By the way, im using windows vista 2007 & 32-bit operating system.
I was able to get rid of every expansion pack except pets and the base game when i did the system restore.
so i click browse>computer>C>program files> electronic arts:


so let's say I were to select the sims 3, these folders are within that folder:


and all of them are empty, and its the same situation with pets. so i still can't uninstall No shit, Sherlock.

Yeah! that is the way, and still will not uninstall? You had empty folders all this time?
Ok this is my tool of choice! If this baby does not uninstall and gives you an error, then the best solution would be to try to get the Admin to help you via Team Viewer, that way he will be able to do a manual uninstall and check your registry.

i mean it's not like there's an error message, but the program won't let me select a folder, and theres nothing in the folders to select. I tried a couple of other programs and they would either only work if I payed, or not work at all.

Do not pay. This program has worked for me very well. Let the Admin do a Team Viewer with you, since your problem at this point is out of my league and I am certain that he will get back your PC to the way it was before the patch.
I am sorry that I could not solved it in an better way.

Well, Team viewer lets you set up a team appointment with the admin. and he is able to work on your screen at a distance. So, together following his leads, you´ll be able to solve your problem. You are welcome! I am frustrated I could not solve this issue all the way for you. However I trust this Admin will solve this for you as he is very experienced and dedicated.

Hello,

When you see Admin online, join the chatbox you'll find on the home page. If he has the time, he'll join you there and you can ask him to have a look.
