Sims 3 Showtime "No Game Disc Found!" [SOLVED]

Post by tenrec4tea on Thu 15 Mar 2012, 22:40

Whenever I try to play Sims 3 it tells me that I need to insert Showtime's disc. This is what I did...

I had the base game and Pets already installed on my computer.

I downloaded Ambitions, Generations, Late Night, Showtime, and World Advantures. I figured that since the Ultimate Fix was just copying cracks over I'd be fine, so I didn't uninstall them. I followed the Ultimate Fix directions. I copied the cracks to all the correct folders (I didn't put anything in the showtime, pets or generations -- I put it all in the base game's bin), opened the launcher, had it update (went smoothly), closed it, then copied the files in the # Crack folder to the base game's bin.

It told me I needed the disc.

So I looked on these forums to see if I could solve the issue. I tried going through the manual patch (http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v132-fix-manual-patch), but it says...

"The setup has deteched the version 1.33.002 of Sims is already installed. Setup installs an earlier version..."

I decided that maybe some patch i originally had in Pets was still lurking, so I uninstalled it, reinstalled it, used the manual patch to check if it needed to be updated (had the same results), and tried the launch the game to have it tell me I need to put in the Showtime disc.

I've tried launching it from the Sims luncher as well as going into The Sims 3 > Game > Bin > TS3W.

I was thinking I might need to mount a file in Daemon tools, since that's how I've run Sims 2 before, but I don't know what I would mount...

Help?

EA just released the 1.33 patch today so the Ultimate fix you are using is outdated yet again. The only thing to do would be to wait for admin to Upload an updated version or reinstall everything and use the ,manual patch to update to 1.32

...

Is there a way I could use the cracks that come with each individual download, even if I have to remove some of the expansion packs?

There is a temporary download at the download page

Although it works it is not recomended until there is a fix for the patch you've just installed.

Hello,

Probably a few days at most, Admin's on it.
