Ultimate Fix not working w/ update 1.32

Post by herpaderpa on Mon 12 Mar 2012, 00:44

I'm having issues opening and running the Sims 3 launcher. I have my own copy of Sims 3, and downloaded Generations and Showtime from here. I applied the Ultimate Fix and updated my game, just as the instructions told me. Everything was working fine, but I downloaded Hidden Springs and now, my game launcher opens, stays open for a few seconds, then comes up saying it stopped working and needs to close. May I get some help?

P.S. I searched to see if anyone else is having this issue, but couldn't find exact results.

EDIT: Currently, I'm downloading the 1.31 patch as instructed from here. Hopefully this will work. If not, I'll update this post with another edit.

EDIT #2: I downloaded the 1.31 patch, but it will not allow me to install it, leaving me stuck at step one of this thread. It comes up with an error saying I'm already updated to 1.32 and that I need to uninstall it to continue. How do I uninstall a single update?

Hello,

You should be able to reinstall the 1.31 patch, it will ask you if you want to reinstall it, then you have to click Yes.

After this, you can install 1.32, then apply the fix.

Well I didn't understand to good his/her problem.

Try just to use the Ultimate Fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems?highlight=Ultimate+fix

Place it in your Base-Game folder, in Game/Bin.

I have tried everything. I have redone the Ultimate Fix and it did nothing for me.
I just tried doing it again and even tried the other fix that tells you to try reapplying the 1.31 update patch and it won't install. It tells me that I'm already updated to 1.32 and won't allow me to go back to 1.31.
I still can't keep my launcher open for more than 2 seconds without it saying that it froze and needs to be closed.

Hello,

Is this issue just with the launcher, or are you unable to play your game at all. Its quite simple to bypass the launcher.
Having said that, you are already at patch level 1.32, have you tried applying just the crack from the fix?

I am having issues with the launcher, and when I try and bypass the launcher, it pops up with a window saying "It looks like you have installed an unofficial game modification that does not match your current version of The Sims 3. We recommend that you either uninstall these game modifications or get updated versions of them - otherwise you may experience crashes or significant bugs".
Yes, I'm already at and stuck with 1.32 and have tried the fix, but nothing can be done, due to being unable to either open my launcher to update the game or install the 1.31 update/patch thing.
Why do I feel like I keep repeating myself?

Hello,

Why can't you do the 1.31 patch?

Guh, how many times must I say it? I have 1.32 installed and it says I need to uninstall it if I want to apply the 1.31 patch.
This is the error window I get when I try and open the 1.31 patch:

Hello,

But if you're already at patch level 1.32 there's no need to apply the entire fix. The unofficial game modification could mean 2 things, you have:
1. an outdated crack or,
2. an outdated mod

You wont be able to run the 1.31 patch unless you completely uninstall your game, which would be a bit much for now! So if you're using mods/cc, try to disable them and see if your game works then.
And could you please show us a screenshot of the folder you copied the crack to? It would be most helpful if the screenshot showed a detailed view of the folder showing file types, date's and of course the path of the folder.
