The Sims 3 Modification Error.

Post by ashiscool on Tue 12 Jun 2012, 18:29

Ok, so I have tried to get this game up and running for a week and a few days now, I have literally been excited to play this game, but unfortunately its not working. I have downloaded all the expansion packs + stuff packs including Katy Perry's Sweet Treats, I have downloaded the fix and read the instructions on how to use it, so when I installed all the games I installed Katy Perry's Sweat Treats last so I could update last. After I installed the manual patch and then I placed the 2 files that were in the #Crack folder in the fix, and yes I have downloaded the latest version of the fix for Katy Perry's Sweat Treats. I placed the 2 files in the bin folder in the game directory, I replaced the other two files. After I clicked on the TS3 file sitting in there and it comes up and a black screen appears for awhile with the egg timer and then it turns to an arrow and nothing happens, so then I click the Windows button on the keyboard and I get the modification error, I have no mods or custom content installed whatsoever. So I press continue and the loading screen comes up and nothing happens the mouse button just keeps going round and round, and its starting to get on my nerves, so I would appreciate it if someone could help me solve this problem, as I have tried a lot of times to get it to work, I just want to play the game now. I have never got past that loading screen so PLEASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSE HELP!

And I know this is along paragraph but I tried to make it as clear as possible, and I'm sorry about that.
I had bought the base game a while ago so its on a disk. And is that modification error supposed to come up?

Hello,

No, that error should not come up if everything is done correctly.
Let's see, don't use the TS3.exe, but the TSW.exe instead, if you want to start the game without the launcher.

Also, did you install the base game via Origin?

Eh, no just from the disk, I didn't install Origin with The Sims base game. And I'll try, but I think I've tried before.

//EDIT

No it's not working I still get the modification error, I'm getting fed up at this stage Sad.

Hello,

Glad to hear you found the problem!
I think I forgot to ask whether you had Custom Content/Mods or not.

Anything else we can help you with?

Sorry it's been a slow reply, but actually there is, I don't have CC installed just a few mods that are working, but my game is slowing down is this because of this?

Hello,

It depends on your computer and the type of mods you're using. A mod that allows you "housecleaning for everyone" (for example) doesn't use as many resources as Awesomemod.
How exactly would you describe "slowing down", is it game lag? Read more about game lag here.

It just freezes a lot and the time and people freeze and take about five minutes to go again, it's really annoying, it's not like I can stick it.

Hello,

Ok, have a look at that page about game lag I linked you to before.
