in which order install expansions?

Post by 1 lobster 1 on Fri 23 Mar 2012, 19:27

I downloaded 1 ambitions, 2 late night , 3 generations 4 hight end stuff, 5 master suite stuff, 6 world adventures, 7 town life stuff, 8 outood living stuff, 9 showtime and of course base game (I also plan update the game too).

I cant understand in which order I must install expansions (if there is order??). There are informations about that in forums and #installation guides, but it doesnt match.

Hello,

The installation guides are obsolete, so we now go by this.

Hello,

The order in which you install isn't very important, what is important is patching because EA messed up with the last few patches. Do it like this:

-Start by installing the base game.
-Now patch it to game version 1.29 with the the 1.29 superpatch.

-At this point you can decide to install everything except for Showtime, or you can patch to 1.31 first. It doesn't really matter which route you take at this point as long as you patch to 1.31 before installing Showtime.
-The incremental (small) patch for 1.31 can be found here.

To find out which one you need, do this:
-Open "Start", type "regedit" in the search box and
then press [ENTER].
- When you're in the Register Editor, navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Sims > The Sims 3 OR IT MAY BE IN:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Wow6432Node > Sims > The Sims 3 (Windows 7, Vista)
-Here you'll see a file called "SKU". Double click on it, look at the value and download the matching 1.31 patch.


-After you've successfully installed everything, download the manual patch and the latest fix.
-Install the 1.33 patch you downloaded in the previous step.
-Look at the fix and open the #crack folder, these 2 files should be applied as specified in step 13 in the fix's installation guide.

If you have any questions, let us know.

I simply install base game + expansions (excluding showtime) and after that I only use patches and crack from ultimate fix.

I am very grateful for your help, but I am very weak at english and computers. Your answers are quite difficult to understand and create more questions than answers. I hope that answer is simple.Very Happy

Hello,

I understand. What is your language if you don't mind me asking? We have members from everywhere, there's bound to be someone who can try to explain in your language.
Did the installation succeed?

I have followed this, Can i assume that in the original base you do not apply the crack as in replacing the executable file as mentioned in the install file? Secondly After installing the base i applied the 1.29 super patch and then the 1.31 patch. At this point i assume as you say i can install any of the expansions/content. However if i for example install the first expansion world adventures it asks for a serial number on install. How am i meant to overcome this as earlier in this thread you mentioned that the installation guides are all now defunct.

Hello,

They are, except for the serial keys Wink You should also change the SKU version as described in the WA and OLS Installation Guide if you get an error about the region.
