Problems with Sims 3 Update and Pets Download. T_T [SOLVED]

Post by RisingKoi on Tue 19 Jun 2012, 22:09

I have The Sims 3 Ultimate Bundle (World Adventures,High End Loft,Ambitions,Night Life,Fast Land and Outdoor). worked fine til i realized it takes an eternity to load anything (lowering graphics didnt do much). I recently realized that not only does it take long to load it also goes in and out of freezing. So I thought maybe it needed an update but everytime I hit the refresh button on the Launcher it told me "Cannot reach EA manager". So Today I've tried three things: I downloaded the Sims 3 Pets [FIXED] that just tells me "Sims 3 Update fail", The Sims 3 Update fix that tells me I need some sort of older patch version first, the manual patch that also tells me the same thing and then the EA manager from Origin that nows make my Sims 3 Launcher freeze everytime I hit refresh on the Update tab. I made sure I read all the directions thoroughly maybe I missed something? I'm not sure if my computer just messing with me or what. Sorry for the long rant, I was just so excited now I'm confused. (T_T)

Any sort of help is GREATLY appreciated. Smile

I can't do any of those steps cause I cant download any of the
expansions needed, I keep getting error messages telling me I can't
update the Sims I already have. D: (T_T)

Hello,

I think you confused the meaning of "Downloading" and "Installing". Downloading means grabbing from the internet and saving it on your PC, installing means actually integrating the game/program onto your system.

Could you please post as screenshot of the error? Thank you!

Hello,

I think that what you downloaded is a modified installer.
When you installed your game, did the base and the expansions all install at once? Was it pre-installed or pre-cracked?
If you can answer any of those questions with "yes", I'm afraid you won't be able to update or install any additional expansionpacks.
The best thing you could do is download all the games separately (from G4TW Very Happy) and install them using the guide from Admin's first post.

That makes so sense, it did install all at once. Thank you both so much for your help, I really really appreciate it. <3

Not at the moment, Thank you. I'll download them separately and follow the steps from there.
