Installed sims 3 Pets expansion... nothing happened?

Post by lolaeve45 on Sat 07 Jul 2012, 21:11

I downloaded sims 3 pets and then I did the Ultimate Fix. I followed the instructions on "how to install the sims 3 correctly" or whatever it is and the ultimate fix instructions yet..
Nothing changed on my game.. no updates... no pets?

Is it because I didn't use WinRar? (I used whatever Mac usually uses i think.. unarchiver?)

Did I have to do something after downloading the expansion pack? because all i did was download pets, then immediately download the ultimate fix and follow the crack instructions on the ultimate fix guide.

Oh, and I have the base game CD, so can that make a difference?

this should go under mac support. but i'll answer some questions as best as possible.

1. mac from what i know don't need winrar. i've never had to use winrar whenever i did stuff on my macbook. but i don't have any games for it so i don't know.

2. did you install the expansion packs?

3. i don't think it matters about whether you have the actual game or the g4 version as long as you apply the crack.

Hello,

You need to unpack it with stuffit expander.
You can install the expansion with your base game, as long as it's an original disc. Did you get the MAC fix?

Okay, so stupid me didn't realize that I actually have to go install the pets game (duh!) But how do I do that on a mac? The file that the instructions tell me to install it with is Sims3Ep05Setup.exe but macs can't open .exe files. If I try to install the game using the install launcher, the icon just bounces and when it eventually opens its tells me I don't have proper disk verification or whatever...

How do I use the exe file? I saw a bunch of stuff about making a dmg version by going to disk utility and creating a new disk and putting the expanded files into it but the file remains a .exe file and I still can't open it.....

i've only installed iworks and ilol but i would assume its similar... when i plugged in my external hardrive with the file, a new screen appeared and it had the program file along with a new folder and i got another screen that said " to install, drag the file to your application folder"

are you seeing something like this?

Hello,

This step by step looks real useful to me. You can skip step 1 and 2.
I don't think you still need Late Night to use the other expansions though.
This guide is outdated but it has pictures Very Happy
Start on page 5.
