please guidance for more expansions. [SOLVED]

Post by rockin on Fri 30 Mar 2012, 12:19

thanks to your wonderful help, we installed, around middle of dec. 2011 the sims3 and the pets expansion.
it works fine .
our current versions are - sims3- 1.29.55.014017. pets- 10.0.96.013001.
we would like now to add more expansions.
late night , ambitions and generations.
I'm afraid that if we will do it incorrectly it will harm the exist game.
i saw that there is a new updated fix.
but i understood that it's refer to the new version, i think 1.33 .
my doughier want very much those expansions even at the price that we will have to install everything from the beginning.
i made a copy of the 'saves' in the game.
please your guidance for it.

Hello,

If you want to add those expansions, you don't necessarily have to patch to the latest version. You can install those expansions, and simply reapply your current crack.

is there any useful update's in the new version?
i'm asking it because if we already work on it, maybe it's a chance to update everything.
or do you think it doesn't worth the effort/risk.

Hello,

Well the updates 1.31, 1.32 and 1.33 are mostly for Showtime and the use of Simport.
For some people they cause a lot of problems, from cc that will no longer install or show up in game, to a game that wont start.
So if you're not planning on installing Showtime yet, there no reason why you should use those patches at this moment.

the show time looks grate (we didn't know about it) but we are afraid from getting those problems you mentioned.
i understand that if in future we would like to add showtime we will have to update the base game version.

regarding late night , ambitions and generations, is it o.k to add all of them at the same time, or safer one at the time.
to make those expansions do i have to use their downloads and cracks which i still have in the older fix i used for my current game, or the new one ?
and last question, i understand that first i have to install the downloaded extension and then copy both files of their crack and replace them with those in the base game bin?
i' m asking because i have already replaced them at the previous install.

Hello,

Uhm you can just install the downloaded expansions from here.
just use the serial in the read me of every expansion but DONT APPLY ANNY CRACKS FROM THE EXPANSIONS.
And update your base game version to 1.33 for the showtime is correct.

Are you using any cc?

Hello,

If you do want Showtime, don't use the manual 1.33 patch right away, just let the installer patch to 1.31 during the Showtime installation, then use the manual patch found here in combination with the new fix.
You can add the expansions all at the same time, that's no problem, but as lolz4life says, don't use any cracks when you install, when they're finished installing, you may try to start your game and if you get a "no disc" or "unofficial game modification" error, reapply the crack you're using now. So it may be best to backup (copy) the TS3W.exe and TSHost.dll from your base game\bin folder, unless you kept the old fix files.

Hello,

No need to backup the crack/original files, they are ALL already included in the Ultimate Fix.

At this point:

1. Install all the The Sims 3 games you like, but try not to apply any cracks. If you did, just ignore it.
2. After installing all the games you want, download and apply this patch: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v133-fix-manual-patch-updated
3. When it finished updating to v1.33, re-download and re-apply the Ultimate Fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

Let us know the result. Good luck!

hello,
we installed and applied smoothly the ambitions, generations and late night, with our 1.29 game version.
so if we want also the show time we can first install this expansion and only then to update to 1.33 ver. and it wouldn't harm nothing ?

by saying this : "re-download and re-apply the Ultimate Fix" , do you mean to apply the crack in the new fix instead the current one, or doing some more things?

Hello,

Installing Showtime will prompt you to update to 1.31, after Showtime is installed, you can use the manual 1.33 patch.
Then you'll need the latest fix.

Hello,

When you install Showtime, your game will have to be updated to 1.31 and that shouldn't cause any problems. Don't use the Showtime crack though, apply the manual 1.33 patch, then the crack from the new fix. Your old crack is no longer compatible and could cause game crashes.

Hello,

If you're on game version 1.31, use the crack that came with Showtime.
But if you used the manual 1.33 patch,
you'll need the latest fix.
That should take care of the no disc error.

we are not sure yet if we want to stop with 1.31 or continue to 1.33, since you mentioned that people had some problems.
in the meanwhile(before your reply) i changed to the crack of the latest fix in the base game bin.

when starting game it says " looks you have an unofficial copy......
".
when i choose to continue, the game starts o.k.
is it because i had to use the crack in the showtime and not the one in the fix, and is it a sign for problems?

another thing. when it start showtime it asks if we want to log in to the web.
for the safe side we choose "continue without log in" . is it ok to
choose log in ?

Hello,

Yes it's ok to log in but it doesn't do much if you don't have any registered games.
To prevent to unofficial game modification, either update to 1.33, or use the crack from Showtime in stead.
If you use the manual patch I linked to before, it should be safe.

hi,
btw till now the game works fine.
please help us with the dilemma about the 1.33.
i mean advantages it gives against risk.
when you say to use the Manuel patch you gave us for safe installation, you mean do it to update the 1.33 version?

Hello,

If it works fine, I don't think you should do anything else. If you run into any problems, just let us know.
The 1.33 just fixes some issues with SimPort, nothing important.
But yes, if you like, you may update to 1.33 safely.

Please let us know if there's anything else we could help you with at the moment!
