Sims 3 Store Content

Post by lamortia on Wed 14 Mar 2012, 21:39

I've installed The Sims 3 and did the patch and regedit (which was already set to 2, which was in tutorial) and applied the 1.32 update. Then applied the Base Game crack witch is called TS3 but when I open the TS3 .exe file in bin it just comes up with an error: Unable to start game: Service initialization failed (0x024e424f). Then I put the # Crack which is the TS3W crack and it works perfectly fine in the bin. But I downloaded all the store content into the documents > Electronic Arts > Sims 3 > Downloads and installed them through the launchpad and it says it downloaded but when I started the game it says no addons are installed.

Thank you for the help.

//EDIT

Now the launchpad won't even read any content in the downloads folder in the Downloads folder
Admin edit: Do not double-post, use the "Edit" button on your message instead! Thank you.

Yes, I have. I believe I know what happened. I'm going to retry one last time and I'll leave a message if I got it fixed or If i can't get it to work. Should I apply the crack before or after I put the store items? I'm putting all the items that you've listed in media fire. Thank you for the help and your response time was very impressing.

//EDIT

I'm reinstalling the sims 3 then applying the 1.31 patch then let it
audo update then apply the # Crack then put the items in the documents
downloads?

I try to start the TS3.exe but it gives me the error which I posted earlier. Bit when I click the TS3W.exe it will work but it pulls up The Sims 3 - Showtimes and it says it's modified even though I never installed a mod. I installed the shop items but the extra cities in The Sims 3 - Showtimes don't seem to see the other maps, not sure if it's because of the expansion pack or not. But I would like to just play the original Sims 3 but with all the shop items, well if that's possible.

Hello,

Don't worry, we'll get this to work!
Please open your game launcher and hover your mouse over the base game icon in the lower-left corner of the screen. What version does it show? It starts with 1.xx.x.

Hello,

Yes, DO NOT update to 1.33 yet.
Even if you already have 1.31 installed, RE-DO the 1.31 as described in step 1.

Hello,

Sorry, the Fix is now compatible with 1.33. Read this: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t4178-ultimate-fix-now-compatible-with-version-133-of-the-sims-3

okay I updated to 1.33 and it still gives me an error when I try to start up TS3.exe. TS3W works fine but I don't want to play showtime I wanted to play the regular. Is there any way we could chat in like voice chat or possibly a chat room so we could communicate much quicker? Instead of posting one post per day. Sorry, I'm trying to get this to work for myself and my mom. Didn't want to waste your time.

Hello,

No time is wasted I assure you. You can always join the chatbox on the homepage if we're online.
Once an expansionpack is installed, it becomes integrated with your base game and your other expansions. You can't play the base game seperately from Showtime, if you start TS3W.exe, the game is started and the features of your base game are there with the features of Showtime, you can start your previous save game and nothing will have changed for your household, except that they now have more options.

Hello,

Please open the Fix and navigate to the "# Crack" folder. You'll see a .dll and a .exe file.
Drag & drop both files from the Fix' .rar file to your Desktop.
From your Desktop, move them to exactly: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and NOT to any other (expansion) folder.
Besides, you should get a pop-up, telling you the files already exist. Choose "Copy and replace".

The game should start fine now. We'll be waiting for the result. Good luck!
