Original The Sims 3 - Can I install torrent expansions? [SOLVED]

Post by SmallAngel on Fri 30 Mar 2012, 04:19

Hello everyone!

I'm quite new to this, so excuse me if it is a stupid question.. Smile
I have a legal, The Sims 3 disc version, registered and all.. But loosing my job last month didnt make me desire the expansion less, but not having the money for them, and now LOOOOOTS of time, I would like'em.. Can I just download and install the torrents as described, without having any impact when it's all registered and all? And what about a "no disc" crack for my original The Sims 3 too? Is it just the file in the pack from you inhere?

Thanks in advance!
Sabi...

Well I never downloaded anything using origin but I also have a legit base-game and the torrent expansions work fine. Base is still registered with EA. Hope that helps you.

Hello,

That will be no problem at all and your registered base game remains as such. You'' have to crack your game with the fix, which requires at least one of the following expansions: Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff, Generations.

So, if I download'em ALL, because you have been so awesome to share them, I can just leave the base-game as it is, and it can still update and all? Wink

Btw. I had a friend make a no-cd crack to my base-game it its newest version: 1.33.2.015002 - it worked perfectly, but I couldnt find it anywhere so I will be more than happy to share it if you need it? Smile <------ Does it have any effect on installing the expansions?

Hello,

Yes, but in order to update safely, you'll need the latest version of our Ultimate Fix, which gets updated after each new game version release: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems
No need to insert any discs, no need to mount anything, no need to use any cracks except for the Ultimate Fix. (It already includes the latest working crack)

If your game is cracked already, it won't affect the installation of the other expansions in any way.

Please let us know the final result and don't hesitate to let us know if you need any more assistance!

Hello,

Assuming your base is already up to date, you can start with any of them. Don't use any of the cracks though!

Okay, so I start out with the fix that Admin linked, and then just install everyone of the extras and expansions, without crack? Smile
(Just to be sure, would be shame if I did it wrong after all... Smile )

Hello,

The fix is applied when you finish installing all the expansions. It has the only crack you'll need, so there's no need to apply the cracks that came with the expansions.

I will... Smile Btw, I have a question.. My niece told me that after installing expansions I have to run The Sims 3 from another shortcut than the base game, fx. Sims 3 Pets, (she has them all in original) is that correct? Thanks in advance.. Smile

Hello,

You can start from the launcher icon on your desktop, or the TS3W.exe in the base game\bin.

Okay, I'm now ready to use the ultimate fix, but I wanna hear if I have to replace the files in every expansion and base game, when my base game is original? Thank you.. Smile

Hello,

Replace all that apply. It may not be needed but it's best to avoid any mistakes.
