Some questions.[SOLVED]

Post by wwken06 on Thu 31 May 2012, 06:37

A good day to you all..

First of all I would like to say GOOD JOB! I have been a fan of The Sims since the first game was released.. Its so nice to see that you are doing a great job with the updates and such... I read in the wikipedia that there are 2 more stuff packs to go and I really hope you can update also to that...

Now to my concern...

Due to slow internet speed, I have only been able to download the base game and WA..
High End Stuff, Ambitions and Fast Lane are still downloading.. I tried using the WA but it
asks for a cd to be inserted in the cdrom.. I noticed that according to the installation guide,
I am to update Sims3 2.5 but the update shown on the launcher is 2.14.. I got a little confused til I found the post on how to install The Sims 3 correctly and the Ultimate Fix... However it said that I must install the more recent expansion packs (Showtime, Generations etc) for the game to work..
Now my questions are.. 1. Does this really mean that I have to install those recent expansions for me to play the game with expansions? and 2. If I were to skip other expansion packs and install Base game and Generations, can I just insert the remaining or it has to be in order like the Sims 2?

I hope I have delivered my concern properly since english is not my mother language..
Any help on this matter will very be appreciated... Thank you and have a good day! Very Happy

Hello,

Note that you only need one of the more recent expansions to use the fix, so if you have the base game and Generations, nothing's stopping you from playing.
And if you want to add more expansions down the line, you can do that in any order you wish.

I can assure you G4TW will be hosting the 2 new stuff packs that are coming soon Very Happy

I see.. So that would mean that even if I installed Generations first then Ambitions later, no crack copying is required or do I still have to do the updates and copying of crack and such?

I am such a .. XD

Hello,

This post tells you exactly how to install and has the link to the manual patch and the fix.
You need both of these.

If you add an expansion later on, try starting the game. If you get an error during start up, apply the crack from the fix again (as described in step 13 of its installation guide) and it should work.

And don't hesitate to post if you run into problems or questions.

I would like to report to le Admin and Lady ElDi that IT WORKS!

First off was I installed the base game like so and Generations... Patched it up and applied the fix... It worked wonders... A little bit laggy but still tolerable.. Then I installed World Adventures without any crack copying and such and it still works!

THANK YOU SO MUCH G4TW~!
