Problems with .package files. [SOLVED]

Post by BoredLatvianGuy on Fri 29 Jun 2012, 14:49

Hello,

Although my game isn`t crashing anymore (I did all that DEP stuff), I have problems with the .package files. Just to make sure I don`t have any "bad" files in my game, I uninstalled all my CC and re-downloaded all the CC on your MediaFire account. Since "Lucky Palms" came out today, I decided to download also the "Lucky Simoleon Casino" with it`s fix.
As Lady ElDi suggested me, I made all my .package files (the newest version of nointro, some CC in your MediaFire account was in .package format and all the fixes I needed, once again, everything from your MediaFire account) into one file called everything.package. I ran the MTS Delphy`s dashboard, and it showed me this:



Since everything`s from your account it shouldn`t conflict, so do you know what should I do?

Hello,

Did you also put fix files in your compilation package?

I put other fix files in the everything.package, except the fix files for the Casino

Hello,

It's possible that you had a compilation fix that already has the Casino fix. Do you experience any problems if you leave that particular fix out?

I haven`t tried to put the casino in any towns, but I know that the slot machines are working. I will check and respond in a sec ^_^
P.S. - what have I done... I thought it would be a good idea to put the Electronic Arts folder (see in the picture) on my desktop. After a day I put it back under "All programs", it worked yesterday, but today it says the folder is empty. I honestly don`t understand anything about computers, so can you please please help me to get the folder back? Smile

Hello,

Is that the folder from your (My) Documents?
Because it doesn't work that way, that folder needs to be in the documents folder for all the data to work properly, so your game probably generated a new one.

No, it originally was under "All programs", in the Start menu. Then I dragged it to desktop or into downloads (under "My documents"), I don`t really remember, and now I don`t know how to get it back. At first I simply dragged it back, but it isn`t working anymore

Hello,

What was inside? Is this your install directory?

1. So, I placed the casino and it looked kinda empty...



I guess that in the empty space there should've been those gambling tables and slot machines :?

2. There were all the launchers. I know that that`s nothing important, but it is kinda time consuming to go to C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and open the game. Can I simply drag an .exe file to the "Start menu" to make a shortcut? And which one of those .exe files do I need, because I tried one and it opened the game, but since I launch Sims 3 using Game Booster, I need the launcher for installing CC

Hello,

You can always create a shortcut of TS3W.exe (located in the base game\bin). Do this by right-clicking it, and choosing "create shortcut". Now, drag the shortcut to your desktop. You can then right-click it and choose "run with Gamebooster". I do it that way myself, and I only open the launcher when I install sims3packs.
It'll definitely save you time starting the game because you don't have to wait for the launcher to come up.
