Sims3 Launcher keeps freezing.[SOLVED]

Post by crash254 on Sun 11 Mar 2012, 19:47

I have spent the last few weeks dl all the Sims 3 (base game, pets, generations,late night, master suite, world adventures, ambitions,showtime and all the four 'stuffs' as well as the store updates 1to26 (July 2011). I then dl the ulimiate fix and did as instructed (and before i applied the crack ) I launched the Sims 3 base game (Sims 3 Launcher ve. 12.1.273.015001) and click on Update (as instructed in the Ultimate Fix installation guide). it shows the upate as Sims3_1.32.3.015017_from_1.31.118.015017.exe. Then it freezes and absolutely refuses to work.

I then searched on here for a solution. i found where it was mentioned that i could/should copy all the exe files from Bin to DEP. I did that and still the Sims3 Base game (Launcher) doesnt work. It opens but just freezes up.

I have also tried to launch the games directly from their own exe as someone suggested but that too doesn't work.

Does anyone have any idea what i did wrong?

Thank you

Hello,

It shows you the update "Sims3_1.32.3.015017_from_1.31.118.015017.exe", you say. But, did you actually apply that update?

No. When i had first applied the Ultimate Fix and i openned the Sims 3 Launcher i did click on the Update. But notrhing happened. It just froze and has continued to freeze ever since. Even now when I try to open the Launcher it still freezes up at the Update. I m not sure if it even took or what as it stays 'non-responsive'

Hello,

OK good, please use the manual patch instead: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v132-fix-manual-patch-updated

After doing so, re-download and re-apply the latest version of the Ultimate Fix.

I assume that I wouldn't have to do the #11 instructions (noted below) but can just go straight to #12 and #13?
11. Now, open the The Sims 3 launcher and navigate to the "Update" -tab. Choose "Refresh". If a new update is shown, install it. Now you should have got the latest version of the game. (
RECOMENNED: If you get an "Invalid File" error during the update process, use THIS manual patch instead!)

Hello,

If you used the manual patch, yes, you may skip this step.

Okay it works perfectly. The expansion packs take a while to load but thats fine. Thank you so much for your patience and for your helpfulness.

Questions:

1. Should I install the Origin Installer when it pops up?

2. Should I allow for automatic updates?

3. Should I dl the New Store Content Patch.. and any other updates?

4. Is it okay to use the Downloads within the Launcher to 'Select and dl Custom Content?

5. Would i get the EA monthly Store updates or do I need to dl the store updates from mediafire.com ?y8uy4gu2y8jqt and only from there?

Hi there,

Glad to hear it's working!

1. No, you do not need it, if you use the manual patch.
2. Yes, you can turn that on, but if you have no Origin installed, it won't auto-update. So it doesn't really matter.
3. Yes, download the Store Content Patch, but nothing else.
4. Yes, you can use Downloads and Custom Content, Mods - everything you like!
5. It doesn't matter where you get them from, they should all work fine! We just provide them free of charge on our official MediaFire account.

Did I answer all your questions? If not, please let me know! (I'll keep this topic open)

Happy simming in advance!
