cannot even begin to comprehend how to download the Sims 3 expansions.

Post by panda82 on Wed 11 Jul 2012, 21:54

I don't want to have to extract everything and look for "installation guides". I want to just have a full very very detailed list of what to do. I'm trying to download World Adventures, Ambitions, and Generations. I've done a couple different things and i'm pretty sure it was ALL out of order and royally screwed up so now.. I don't really know what to do. I don't like chopped up instructions from multiple places.

So i would really appreciate ONE list of everything i need to do and how to do it.

Hello,

You will have to extract everything I'm afraid, and you still need the installation guides if only to find the serials you need to install.
But everything else can be found here.
And let us know if you have questions, we're happy to help.

Alright I'm going to try to do the alternative method instead.

should i just go ahead and uninstall everything from the first attempt and start from scratch? (except for the torrents)

And in the fix will there be a # crack for all the expansions that i need to copy to the base game or will there only be two files all together that will need to be copied over? That seems fishy like its too easy, i felt that way about the first method and i was right..

Hello,

There's no need to uninstall anything. Which expansions do you have now? Which do you plan to install?
You'll only have to crack the base game at the end, so there are no other cracks in the fix.

Hello,

No problem.
Ok start by downloading and installing the manual patch.
Now install those expansions, it doesn't matter in which order. If you get a region error when you install World Adventures, have a look at the installation guide to fix that. But ignore any cracks and patches that come with these expansions.
When you finish installing everything, open the fix, find the #crack folder and copy both files in it to the base game\bin.

:/ sorry, new problem...

The install bar got to right before the very end and then i got a "CRC error" telling me that 86 of the files don't match the file in setups .cab file and that the medium i'm using is corrupted. then my options are: abort, retry, ignore. I had to hit "ignore" for the same thing a couple times during installation and it always went away and resumed what it was doing, but this time no matter how many times I hit ignore it keeps popping up. I clicked it repeatedly paying attention to the file names and they are repeated.

I've looked online and have read that this is my laptop having registry errors or the drive can't properly read the disk? (it's mounted)

My dad had this laptop specifically for gaming, it's even got a fancy video card so i dont know why it's having issues.

Hello,

Our versions of the expansions aren't mounted, the files need to be extracted with winRAR. Then they're installed by running setup.
I think there's either a problem with the download, it could be incomplete or the file could be corrupted, or you used some other program besides winrar to extract the files.

i tried it again with winRAR, and it did the same thing. But what do you mean they aren't mounted? if I don't mount it how to i tell the installer where the "disk" is?

Hello,

You don't,
Just extract the files and open the folder you extracted it to, then look for "setup" and double click.

Hello,

There's no need to mount anything to begin with; at least not for the expansions, downloaded from Games4theworld.
All you need to do is following the instructions below very carefully:

Open the .rar file you downloaded using only WinRar, which can be downloaded from www.games4theworld.org . (If you use any other software than WinRar, like WinZip or 7-zip, the files will get messed up!)
When you've opened the file using WinRar, select áll the files in it and drag & drop them to a folder on your Desktop. When the extraction is done, close the .rar file and open the folder on your Desktop.
Now, start by reading the included "# Installation Guide.txt" and you should be able to get the game to work yourself. Good luck!
