The sims 3 unable to start game service initialization failed (0x024e424f) (Followed Instructions).[SOLVED]

Post by Funkymonkey123 on Wed Jun 20, 2012 8:50 pm

I've installed all the stuff packs and expansions in order and I have no custom content or mods, but when I try to load Sims3launcher.exe files it Says Sims3launcher has stopped working. When I try to load the TSW.exe files it says "the sims 3 unable to start game service initialization failed (0x024e424f)" and I've put the cracks in already. Can someone please help me?

I'm going to uninstall and install everything again. I'll come back when I'm done.

Hello,

Reinstalling would be a bit much.
That particular error code suggests a problem with your crack (since you don't have mods/cc).
If, after reinstalling, you're still getting the same errorcode, please show us a screenshot of the folder you copied the crack to. Preferably a detailed view of the folder with all files&folders showing and file type etc. of the files.
