The sims 3 World Adventures Install problem

Post by TigerTae on Sun 08 Jul 2012, 00:08

Hi,

I downloaded and installed the sims 3 from this site and now I want to install the World Adventure one.
But at step 3, when I run the "sims3patch.exe" I get a window with all of these weird letters. It looks a bit like this:

"éúíéúûââòòéúíéúûââòò" etc.

At first I ignored it and thought it was ok so I just changed that "C:\Program Files (x86)\Sims 3" to "C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\De Sims 3" but then when it was almost done it gave an error with the same weird letters so I didn't know what was wrong...

Can you please help me with this? I don't know what I'm doing wrong because I did step 1 en 2 exactly as it said.

EDIT!!
Never mind about step 3. I think it worked.

But now I have a slight problem with step 4... Facepalm
I have to copy ALL files into the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin" but when I do that it wants to ADD the bin folder with the existing bin... Is that right? or do I have to delete the existing one and then copy the new one?

I'm so sorry to bother you guys with this... I'm a noob at these kind of things Facepalm

Hello,

Are you planning on installing more expansions? If you are, please forget about the installation guide that came with World Adventures, and read this.

Allright. I tried installing WA but now it keeps giving me an error when I want to Install it. First it told me to update the sims 3 game. I clicked yes and then it gave me a window saying there was an error updating the game... Then I did everything over again and instead of clicking yes I clicked no. But then I can't continue installing WA....
What to do?

Hello,

Use this manual patch in stead, it'll patch your game all the way to version 1.34. But you'll need the fix and the crack from the fix requires at least one of the following expansions: Katy Perry Sweet treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff or Generations.
That's why I asked if you were planning to install other expansion/stuffpacks.
