World Adventures install - WTF?!

Post by uRabbit on Sun 24 Jun 2012, 07:02

TS3 installed just fine. Now, WA is another story! I have done this before, but obviously some changes have been made, because I don't remember it requiring so much b.s. to do. Maybe because I downloaded the RELOADED releases...

What is this 'regedit' crap? There is no 'Sims' directory in there.

What is this 'sims3patch.exe' inside 'Crack 1'?! It's in a nonexistent language, and doesn't work anyways...

The files in 'Crack 3' don't work either.

/facepalm

Should I just install everything normally, then apply the UF?

Hello,

If you're going to use the fix and one of the following expansions: Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff or Generations, you don't need the patch or the crack in the World Adventures download.
Simply apply the manual patch before starting WA's setup will take you to the most current patch level.

The whole "regedit" thing is another story. You may have no choice, but just try it first without editing the registry. And if you get a "region error", look for the sku version here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Wow6432Node > Sims > The Sims 3.

Hello,

Besides, if you would have read the big, bold, red letters on the frontpage of the Forum, you'd have noticed this post: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly , telling you that you do not need to use any of the "# Crack" folders.

I am having a similar problem, I followed the directions on how to correctly download but when I get to WA it tells me that the Sims 3 needs to be updated before installed, so I proceed with clicking yes to update and it gives me an error sayig "error with Sims 3 update "....I have not applied any of the cracks or patches when installing either game
