Problem - Can't install TS3 Master Suite Stuff

Post by OnceInALifeTime on Tue 03 Apr 2012, 16:39

Hello!
I've never had problems with G4TW's torrents before. Wel, to my problem.
When I'm trying to install the game (YES I've read the installation guide) I get a message saying "This product requires an installed copy of The Sims 3. Install The Sims 3 before installing this product.".
How do I solve this problem? D:

Thankful for quick help.

Hello,

Where did you get the base game? Does it still work at this point?

Bought it when it came out. No, it says that it's not compatible.

Hello,

Is it a Steam download by any chance?

Hello,

What about Origin? (EA Download Manager)
Go to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\
What folders do you see there?

Hello,

Let it run in uTorrent for a few minutes and stop all other downloads/uploads.
I started seeding too.

The game works, but the EP's and SP's isn't in the game. Any clue about what I did wrong?

Hello,

Do their icons show up in your launcher?

No, they didn't. I started the game to see if the things were there even though the icons didn't show up, but they weren't there.

Hello,

That makes sense.
Did you use any cracks, other than the fix, when you installed the game?

Maybe that's why?

Hello,

No that was the right thing to do.
And when you applied the fix, did you follow the entire installation guide, or just applied the crack? If you applied just the crack, reapplying the entire fix can be useful.

I uninstalled my Ep's and Sp's and installed them and tried again, this time it worked.
But do I have to do the same thing with my downloaded Ep's and Sp's?

Hello,

There's no real difference between legal and pirated packs when it comes to the installation process, so whatever works for your owned games should work for the ones you downloaded.
