Confused with the installation

Post by krist1234567 on Wed 14 Mar 2012, 04:19

i already got the base, WA , Ambition and Late Night, soon I will get the Generations, Pets and Showtime
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly#20623
ryt there it says, we should install the base and one of the list ( generations or bla bla bla) do we have to crack for those games ( base and generation) or just leave it (for step 1&2)
and continue to the next expansion ?

and do we install the base, and other expansion based on the installation guide from the download??
or just leave the guide and keep adding without crack until the last expansion and applying the ultimate fix??

this is what ive done so far and i cant even open the launcher and playing it ..
from based (w/o crack)> generation (w/o crack) > WA (w/o crack)> Ambition (w/o crack)> Late night (then i apply the crack based on its installation guide)
but when i opened the launcher , it says "has stopped working" and cuz of that im trying to use ultimate fix and do the exact thing it says but still cant open the launcher....

Oh yea one more thing when I go to regedit, and Local_MACHINE> SOFTWARE and there is no Sims in there @_@


REPLY AND HELP PLEASE! step by step installation @_@

Like it says in the guide install the base game first and put in the crack that comes with it.

Next install one of the listed EP's and put the crack that comes with it

After install any other EP' you want BUT DONT PUT THE CRACKS

After youve installed all the EP' you want THEN use the Ultimate Fix found HERE

Make sure to follow the steps completely when using the fix

As for the regedit are you using 32 bit or 64 bit system? Are you using Windows 7 or Vista?

Hello,

It's recommended not to use any cracks at all during the installation of the base game and the expansionpacks. Exactly as it says in that post.
If you patched your game, the late night crack isn't going to work.

Hello,

These are indeed the most up-to-date instructions: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
The ones that come with the downloads are out-dated. Only use those for the serial code to install the game and for instructions on how to change the SKU code, which is not part of the crack and is not related to your gameplay in any way.
This means: do not use any "# Crack" folders, except for the one in the Fix. You may do the SKU part, since that has nothing to do with the cracking.

Hope this clears up. Good luck and please let us know if you need any more assistance!

now im downloading the patches manually ,
cuz when I open the launcher and accepting the patch, it keeps freezing

oh yea before i got to the patch ,
i experienced launcher problem, it says
"error and please see the log" so i browsed from
other forum and i fixed it,,,

and then im still missing the EP showtime,
when i get it , will it work if i crack the grame already??
and if it does do i have to reapply the patch from ultimate fix??

THANK YOU AND SORRY FOR MY TARDINESS

//EDIT

1 more, is it better to get EP showtime original or katy perry?
or original also included the katy perry ?

and do SP the sims 3 change the gameplay or just add
some objects???

lastly, i found some downloads for additional things like
neighborhoods and new stuffs for EP showtime and pets also the updates store,,
when i install them, it will be in the neighborhood (for stage in showtime or buildings in the pets) or i have to put them first???

TY ONCE AGAIN

Hello,

When you install Showtime, you may have to reapply the crack from the fix.
It doesn't matter which Showtime version you get, the extra content are available as sims3packs.
If you want to use extra content, it depends on what kind of files they are. Sims3packs are installed by putting them in My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads, then open the launcher and go to the downloads tab to install them.
Package files are installed differently, look here.

Hello,

No, no you don't have to reinstall.
I think your game version is not the same as the crack version, please check your launcher to see what your version is as shown in the image below.

Hello,

Ok, please redownload and reapply the fix carefully. You may have an outdated crack.

Hello,

You only need a new fix when a new patch comes out, the fix has been updated not too long ago so maybe you want to redownload it here just in case.
