will g4tw expansion packs work on steam versions?

Post by zsc on Thu 28 Jun 2012, 00:00

I took advantage of the steam sale of Sims 3 and its expansion packs, but now I want to use g4tw's Showtime and Katy Perry (and Supernatural, when you get it). Is there any hope that this will work with Steam versions? Even if I have to program something? Right now, g4tw's Showtime doesn't even recognize my Steam Sims 3 game because Steam puts it someplace else...

Thanks!

I think that this is not possible because i had before the sims 3 on steam (i bought it from the sale too lol) and when i tryed to install pets it didn't even recognize my sims 3 Sad ! And btw steam puts the sims 3 in your Steam\steamapps\common and if you try to instal the downloaded expansions you didn't buy in the steam folder your steam profile will get banned so don't try it !

Hello,

You can't. Setup will not detect your base game if it's a Steam download. It's something about the way Steam installs the game that makes it impossible to use downloaded expansions or a crack.
