I have tried everything and the Sims 3 is STILL not working.[SOLVED]

Post by smalo123 on Sat 26 May 2012, 18:22

Hello!

I have been trying to get my Sims 3 to play now for 3 days. I have installed and uninstalled more times then i care to count. I have all expansions download except pets, my game is updated to version 1.33, i have download and applied the Ultimate Fix a few times but still nothing. I have even watched the YouTube video of how to apply the Ultimate fix and still nothing works. The only two games that i have actually bought are the Sims 3 base game and Ambitions witch are digital copies. When i open the launcher i get this message: NO game disk found! Please insert The Sims 3 Showtime game disk before proceeding. I have also tried to open the game itself trying to go around the launcher and i get this error message: Unable to start game Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb). Can someone PLEASE help me? I would really like to start playing and i know it is possible from reading other posts. Thank you!!!!!

Admin edit: No problem, topic moved!

I think you should get the latest pack's crack & then (After cracking ts3 base) move & replace the latest pack's crack. That's what i've done & it works.

I have applied the base game files from the ultimate fix and then applied the cracks from the showtime file and it is still giving me the error?

//EDIT

Do i have to update the game AFTER i apply the ultimate fix game files?
and then the crack? or can i update the game before i apply the ultimate
fix game files?

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply!
I assume you downloaded the base game via Origin?

yes the base game and the Ambitions expansion i downloaded via Origin, all other expansions are torrents from your site and i did not download pets.

//EDIT

And my Origin launcher is up to date as well. :-)

Hello,

Good! In step 2 here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Where it says:

A wise Admin once wrote:4. Open the "# Crack" folder in the Fix and drag & drop the .exe and .dll file in there to: C:\Program Files (x86)\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and choose "Replace" on the pop-up that appears, telling you the files already exist in that folder.[/size]

Do the following instead:

A wise Admin once wrote:4. Open the "# Crack" folder in the Fix and drag & drop the .exe and .dll file in there to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and choose "Replace" on the pop-up that appears, telling you the files already exist in that folder.[/size]

Start the game afterwards and let us know the result. Good luck!
