Problem with CCs!![SOLVED]

Post by Zohaib Ejaz on Sun 18 Mar 2012, 18:59

So when ever I install the new DJ booth, limited edition venue. etc. (a.k.a the new stuff) it says ".successfull" When I open the game, it's not there. When I open the launcher it says "not installed" How can I fix this?

PS: Yes, I do have the Sims 3 Showtime, and no I have not tried the ultimate fix yet!



Thanks, in advance! What a Face

Are these entirely legitimate copies? If so go ahead and try clearing out your cache files, which you can find here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t2208-sims3pack-installed-world-inaccessible-or-wont-install-fix

Otherwise first step is definitely try the ultimate fix.

The problems with the CC is a patch problem. It all stems on how you got to your patch level. 1.32 was a bad patch and if you patch from 1.29 or before to 1.32, you will have these issues. The correct way to patch is from 1.29 Super patch to 1.31 incremental, which added your Showtime features, 1.32 made them unstable. If you patched 1.29 then 1.31 you may do the 1.33 superpatch and apply the fix. If not you will have to uninstall the base game, which is where the collection files are created, clean your registry and reinstall the base game and then patch to 1.29 super patcher then 1.31 incremental, skipping patch 1.32, applyin 1.33 Superpatcher and apply the fix. Let us know

Thanks guys, I appreciated your help!
Unfortunately it did not work! I have reinstalled the game just 2 days ago before installing showtime! Everything else works fine but it is still NOT working!
Should I try the ultimate fix?

Help STILL needed!

Hello,

Applying the fix is always a good idea, in combination with the manual patch, but I don't think that will solve this problem.
You may try to convert these items with this tool and install them in the packages folder, that has made the content appear in game on my end except for the venue.

Thanks Ladi ElDi!
The ultimate fix did not work, but the bright side is that my game is up-to-date now! I am now going to try that converter! Hopefully it will work. If it did not I will let you know, and if it did I will still let you know!
