Sims 3 + Expansion packs problems.[SOLVED]

Post by JayDeeCole on Tue 17 Apr 2012, 03:39

Hi, fist of all i want to thank you for all the great work your doing. Smile

I've got this huge problem, i've been trying to install The Sims 3 + all expansion packs (wich i've downloaded all from your TPB account except the base game but i don't think this should be a problem)
so that means; WA, LN, Pets, Showtime, Ambitions, Generations and the FL, HEL, OL, TL and MS Stuffs packs.

let me first tell you how i installed my game. (and i followed your guide to the letter tongue .)

First i installed the Base Game, after that i installed Showtime, and after that was done everything else. I didn't apply any cracks and i also didn't install the EA\Origin stuff
After everything was done installing i used your fix from here -> http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems
i did it in the order it said in the .pdf file.
But when i tried to do step 11; Open the launcher and update the game it said;

so i used the manual updater to update my game to version 1.33.2.0150. tried to open the launcher again, still got the same message.
i closed everything and just copied the final crack like it says in step 13.
tried to start the game but it doesn't work.
If i try to start the launcher i keep getting the same message and when i just double click TS3W.exe i get the 0x0175dcbb error

so i have repeat the same process twice. i just did my 3th try, and this is taking a hell of a lot of time

I've been reading a lot of topics on this forum and you guys most of the time said it was an registry problem. i tried something with the SKU i read somewhere but that didn't help either
now i'm all out of ideas, i think i have tried everything i know what could be the problem.
maybe you guys have anymore ideas? i sure hope so, i'm tired of reinstalling and i really wanna play the sims again.

thanks in advance Smile

Hello,

It seems like you didn't restart the pc between uninstalling and reinstalling. If that's the case, you'll have to uninstall and reinstall again, this time restarting the pc before you start to install again.
But have a look at this video first.

I already watched that video but all i see is this when i go to regedit



As you can see there are no Sims files in the wow6432Node map, it has a separate map
And yes i look in the right section, i double checked it lol Razz

I'll just try to uninstall everything, restart my comp
install everything AGAIN, restart again to make sure
use cc cleaner and then do the ultimate fix
here we go

Hello,

It's not in "Wow6432Node" for everyone. For some people it's directly in "SOFTWARE", so you're good.
The instructions from the video still apply to you in this situation.

//EDIT

You guys write too fast. I had to rewrite my post twice, lol.

I don't even have a "Wow6432Node". So my guess is XP doesn't have that.

Post by JayDeeCole on Tue 17 Apr 2012, 18:22

I think it works
I just launched the launcher after installing everything and i didn't get any errors
Lets hope it'll still work after i apply the crack

EDIT:

It actually works
although i get the 'unofficial game modification error' (could this be a problem in the future? and is there a way to fix it?) What's causing this error?
and the game says it can't recognize my video card
but it works, this is amazing
to think that it was this simple to fix it
Thank you. Very Happy

Can i ask you guys another question?
It's about mods

Hello,

The error is caused by either an incompatible (outdated) crack or an outdated mod. If you don't have the latest fix yet, now is the time to apply it.
If you're using mods, make sure they're compatible with your game version.

Of course you can ask another question.

I already used the latest fix, i downloaded everything yesterday. (and i don't have any mods installed yet)
but i just noticed my game launcher says i have 12.037... is this normal
seeing as the newest update is > 1.33.2.0150
this confuses me
when i got update in the launcher it says my game is up to date.

#1: ive also downloaded a torrent (The Sims 3 Store Full April 2012) full of packages
do i just put these in the downloads folder and then use the launcher to install? or is there another way i should do this?

#2: i want to use the AwesomeMod and a mastercontroller
are these save to install? wont it screw up my game?
and in case they don't work, are they just easy uninstall so i can unscrew my game?

Hello,

You can find out your base game version as shown in the image below. Did you use the crack from the fix, or the Showtime expansion?
The store updates are placed in the downloadsfolder and installed with the launcher if they're sims3packs. Package files are installed like this.

Awesomemod and Master Controller are both safe to use, if they're the right version. I'm not sure that these particular 2 mods don't conflicts. Besides that, if you have Awesomemod, you probably don't need Mastercontroller. Keep in mind that Awesomemod is a core mod.
I would only recommend using Awesomemod if you have a high-end pc. If you don't have such a pc, you can get much of the same functionality from these mods.
I have never used it myself due to my (very) low end pc, but the Nraas mods don't cause problems.

I used the crack from the #crack folder from the fix you guys put up here
i followed each step as it said in the .pdf
so first i did the base game, then some expansions and then the showtime etc. and finally the crack from the #crack folder

my skuversion text file says this: GameVersion = 1.31.118.015002
is it possible for me to install the latest update? 1.33 and will this fix the error?
if yes, what steps do i have to follow?

i used to run awesomemod with the sims 3 basegame about a year ago just fine, so i'm guessing it will also run smooth this time

i did some research on Nsaar and awesomemod's compatibility yesterday and AM is a core mod like you said but people said tthat Nraas's MasterController will work fine with AW installed

Hello,

Use the manual patch to get to the latest version, you should no longer get the unofficial game modification error after that.
If you used Awesomemod before, there's no reason why you wouldn't be able to use it now, make sure you have the latest version though.

Hello,

No problem, it's our pleasure.
Getting the mods to work should be a piece of cake if you've used mods before. I'll leave this topic open for the final result.
