Sims 3 launcher stops working

Post by gladoscc on Sat 07 Jul 2012, 08:54

I've got the base game and generations. I did the Ultimate Fix Thing but it didn't fix the launcher issue. (I couldn't get the launcher working beforehand, without Generations, just the base game)

GameVersion = 1.34.27.016002 (via SuperPatcher)

Thanks to the Ultimate Fix, it broke my game - can't initialize service

Hello,

Which error code are you getting with that service initialization error? The code can lead us to the problem and the solution.

Hello,

What if you bypass the launcher?

Hi Lady ElDi:
I'm trying to use the launcher so I can install Sims3pack files, specially the DLC worlds. Do you know any way to install worlds without using the launcher?

Thanks

Hello,

As a matter of fact, I do Very Happy
You can install worlds with Merlin.

I've tried Merlin before, but it didn't fully extract Hidden Springs, told me 1 failed. Another utility gave me a bunch of .package files, and I tried putting them everywhere but the game doesn't recognize it - pretty sure I need a .world file too. How would I use Merlin?

Thanks

Hello,

I never used Merlin to install anything, it's just something I heard. I use Merlin to go through packages when I extract sims3packs.
There's a manual for it here.
