The Sims 3 Collection Help Please! [SOLVED]

Post by louwoo on Thu 12 Aug 2010, 14:01

Hello everyone

today i downloaded all the *games4theworld* Sims 3 Games,

i have these; The Sims 3 - World Adventures - Ambitions - High End Loft Stuff..

i followed all the instructions and had them all installed, the game loaded for the the sims 3, but it was just the base game.. i tried launching the others, (WA, Ambitions, Highend loft stuff..) but it said the game is incompatible and another one said i needed to update the base game, or something along them lines.. i have now uninstalled ALL/EVERYTHING to do with the sims 3, the only thing left in Computer>C>ProgramFiles>Electronic Arts are two folders, including; EADM and Network Play System. basically, i just want to know how exactly to install, if there is an order to install them, etc. this has been bugging me, as ive lost all my sims and my houses i created.

sorry if this has been posted before, feel free to move this thread or something- sorry im just new to this and dont understand the forum yet All help is apreciated, thank you.

Hello,

First of all, you could've backed your SaveGames up before uninstalling. Also the uninstallers asks you if you want to delete the SaveGames yes/no.

Then, when Installing the games, you should Install them in the following order: The Sims 3, WA, HELS, Ambitions.

okay, installing WA and i got to this; 5. Now open the 'Crack 3' folder and start the 'Sims3_1.2.7.00002_from_1.0.631.00002.exe'
patch.

so i extracted all the patches to desktop into a folder called patches, started from the first one (1.2.7.00002)... and it opened the browser, went to the sims 3 page and gave an error message (404) it started installing, then opened a new small window that was installing, then it gave an error message ; 'invalid file found.'

please help.

Hello,

If you're using a retail version of The Sims 3, just skip the steps
where you have to apply the Updates from the "Crack 3" folder.
If you aren't using a retail version of The Sims 3, please do the following to fix this problem:

1. Uninstall The Sims 3.
2. Restart your PC.
3. Reinstall The Sims 3.
4. Install WA.
5. Install Ambitions. (Otherwise the launcher won't work)
6. The Game should work fine now.

where in them steps do i install high end loft stuff? Smile
ive already tried that yesterday, install the sims 3 > install WA> got the same error > uninstall sims 3 > restart > the sims 3.. clean rinse repeat.

Sad
* all the sims 3 + i have are downloaded from Games4TheWorld. no retails here.. mainly cause my computer does not have a CD Drive.

Hello,

I recommend you contact me through Live Support: www.games4theworld.org and tell me you're from here. (Or use your Forum username when contacting, so I know it's you)
I'll do a clean Installation of The Sims 3 for you to see if it works.

Hi,

I'll be on the Live Support in a few minutes. The Live Support software had to Update, so I'm doing that now. Keep refreshing www.games4theworld.org and click on the Live Support button when it says "Online".

Hello,

Yes, you can delete those folder, but if you do so, you can't seed any more.
And, yes, you can Install HELS too now, without any problems.


Glad I could help,


Problem solved through Live Support, topic closed.
