Question about the ( Sims 3) version updates

Post by Tubs on Fri 16 Mar 2012, 14:42

Hi there!! Very Happy

I want to thank you for all the downloads and instructions!
I've been experiencing some problems with the Sims 3, but I didn't install it correctly, so I'm going to follow your instructions and re-install it.

I have a question, since I didn't see anything about it in the "How to install the sims 3 correctly", I figured I should make a thread before installing everything over again. (I also didn't find the answer when I searched).

-- Is it necessary to update the game to any version to make the games and the ultimate fix to work?
-- Can I even do update it if I don't have any original cd of the Sims 3? (not registered in the sims site)
-- Also, what are the version updates for, exactly?


I know. hahah

Thanks!

Hello,

The fix and patch need to be the same version, the current fix is for patch level 1.32 which can be done like this. It's recommended to have the latest patch as long as the fix is compatible, which means that it's not recommended to patch to 1.33 yet, read more here.
It's no problem to install updates if you don't have an original copy, as long as you use the fix.
What are the updates for? Well, EA tends to release the game and expansion packs before it has been properly tested and bugs start showing up that can range from slightly annoying to making the game unplayable. Patch 1.32 for example was designed because the new social features that came with Showtime also came with the fatal flaw of installing cc a sim on tour (through simport) brought with him into someone elses game.

Thanks so much!

So, Should I install the 1.32 version before or after installing the ultimate fix?

Thanks for keeping it open.
I followed every step, fixed it with your ultimate fix, updated it and cracked it.

- Now, I want to install some "packs", like Riverview and others I've seen at your mediafire account. Do I need to do anything else? Can I install it simply run the game?

THANKS A LOT!!

No, just download the packs from the account and install like you normally would install any Sims 3 Pack. Let us know if you need further assistance

I've been playing the game, and it still crashes some times. Maybe that's "normal",Since it happened all the time before too. Other than that the game is working fine.

Kind of normal, yes. You could try these.

Brilliant! =D
I tried the 1st step. And I think it's much better than before in terms of the crashes. The only problem I'm having is that when I try to save the game, the error 16 comes up, I saw a topic where someone had the same situation, so I tried saving AS. instead of save only, It works that way.
But this error doesn't come up from time to time, it comes up every single time I try to save it normally... Do you think it's because I did something wrong?

Hello,

No that's just The Sims 3 being buggy. You can read more about save errors here.

I do. I don't think it has a number like it did before, with the saving problem.

It's in another language, so I'll just post what it says translated to English.

"A severe error occurred while loading "starlight shores.sims3" we strongly
recommend you to restart the application."

This happens every time I try to load a family from any neighbourhood.

Also, when I removed the custom content, wasn't it supposed to eliminate all the families I had from Riverview or Hidden Springs? They are still there, but (at least I think) I deleted those neighbourhoods.
