"Requires a software update." [SOLVED]

Post by Gasper on Thu 14 Jun 2012, 01:01

I've been using the bypass method to download CC from the exchange (page source, Ctrl+F, "Sims3Pack", download) it downloads all fine, laddy-da-da. I click "Install."

(this goes for EVERY SINGLE THING that I try to download/install)

"name.Sims3Pack: Requires a software update. Please make sure your game has the latest software updates.
Done!"

*le sigh*
Is there a patching thing I need to do?
I don't know.
Please help.

Hello,

Did you download the items in .Sims3Pack format? If yes, you may need to decrapify them first, in order for them to work with a cracked game.

Just to be sure, please follow these instructions to update your game to the latest version: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
DO NOT skip any steps!

I just updated my game correctly last night.
Yes, I did download it in Sims3Pack format...
How can I "decrapify" them?

http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=5140699

http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=2507660

Those are the two downloads.
Both with the same "update" error when installing.
It also happened with a couple other Sims3Packs...

Like I said, I did the normal "view page source" thing that has worked for all my other custom content.

Good evening/morning!

I contacted EA Support Center for the same error, they told me that 1.33 update and above can't work with old Custom Content. This problem should be fixed by the author of the content.
But I want to see if Admin's links are working.

Have a nice day! ^_^

I still wonder why I can't get it to work....Can I ask you please if you have Sims 3 updated to 1.34?

Edit: Nevermind, I changed its name to the original name (instead of some random numbers) and it worked for me, too.
