Hello,

When you extracted the files you downloaded, did you use winRAR?

Not Sure What you mean?

The Very First time I installed the game & clicked where it said game Updates & It showed downloads on the lancher & i Clicked Install Downloads & they Installed Then I played the game for 3 days then it messed up. I then Uninstalled Wiped out my computer Reformatted It then tried to reinstall sims 3 & it kept bringing up

File D:\Elecotronic Arts\The Sims 3\Caches\Sunset Valley.objectCache
& says data error (cyclic redundantancy check) "rerty or Cancel"

//EDIT

& I Used The Orgian Installer thing For updates

//EDIT

When I first installed i didnt know about this site to Read How to Properly install the both games Thats probably Why it messed up. So i need to know how to get it to quit doing what it is doing so i can Properly Reinstall both games.

Mod edit: Please edit your post rather than replying to it if you didn't get any other replies yet, thank you.

Hello,

Do you still have the RAR files you originally downloaded? If you do, re-extract them with winRAR. Then try installing again.

Hello,

I see.
There is a possibility that the files you're trying to use have become corrupted, in which case you'll have to redownload them I'm afraid.
But lets wait to see what Admin has to say about this.

Hello,

Please do as following at this point:

1. Completely remove The Sims 3 and all expansions, using Your Uninstaller! Pro, which can be downloaded from www.games4theworld.org .
2. Restart your PC.
3. Re-download all the games you want from www.games4theworld.org .
4. Now reinstall following these instructions: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
5. Start the game and let us know the result. Good luck!


Ps. This is how you should open (Games4theworld) .rar files:

Open the .rar file you downloaded using only WinRar, which can be downloaded from www.games4theworld.org . (If you use any other software than WinRar, like WinZip or 7-zip, the files will get messed up!)
When you've opened the file using WinRar, select áll the files in it and drag & drop them to a folder on your Desktop. When the extraction is done, close the .rar file and open the folder on your Desktop.
Now, start by reading the included "# Installation Guide.txt" and you should be able to get the game to work yourself. Good luck!
