Unofficial Game after downloading Diesel.[SOLVED]

Post by Imakitty on Sat 14 Jul 2012, 16:17

I don't know if anyone else has posted this (But I didn't see it). If so, could you redirect me to that link, or something?

I downloaded Diesel stuff,
turned on the setup,
updated the game,
completed the setup
moved the #crack files into the Game/bin folder
and started up the game.

And then got the message that my game was unofficial. What gives?
Did I forget something?

Hello,

How about your mods? A lot need to be updated for this game version.

As in I need to get new/updated mods, right?

I'll see what I can do, and then report back.
Quick question though- If I were to remove ALL my mods, would it work like regular?

Oh and, I'm not sure if anyone asked this, but is there an easy way to find what needs to be updated?

If you removed your mods, then yes, the game would probably run as it's supposed to.

The easiest way is to go to the developer's site and see if there's been any update. I keep a list of all the sites I get my mods from, and which ones I got. Other than that, I don't think so.. Maybe Lady Eldi has an idea.

Hello,

You'll have to find out by going to the developers site as invalidusername says. Most of them will keep users updated about new mod versions.
I don't use a lot of mods myself, but the first thing I do before using a patch is remove the mods folder and put it on my desktop, then visit Twallan's website to see if there are updates to the mods I use. I only have one other mod besides that.
It's probably a good idea to keep a list of your mods with links to the pages they're on if you use a lot of different ones.

I guess I'll start doing that now... Although it'll be a pain, cause I have like... 30 of them.... Oh well. I'll try this and then see if it works. Thanks for the tip! sunny

I narrowed the problem, and I realized it was my Awesomemod. I didn't know this, but it turns out I have to update it every patch. Noob

Oh well. I'll tell you how it turns out after I get it. I'm used to playing the game with Awesomemod, and I'm too stubborn to get all the Twaillian mods.

Hello,

Awesomemod is a core mod, so it's imperative that it's updated with each new game version. There's no need to get Twallan's mods, you can get Awesomemod here.

This is really sad... But it didn't work.

I pulled all the mods out of the folder. In fact, I pulled the entire mods folder out, and the unofficial game message still shows...

Try removing (drag & drop to the desktop) your entire sims 3 folder from your documents, then try again.

Hello,

I can only consider your crack at this point. If invalidusername's suggestion doesn't yield a result, please show us a detailed screenshot of the folder you copied the crack to with file types etc.

This is the right folder, right?

And I paste the #crack onto the folder, right?

Hello,

That's correct, but which "# Crack" did you put there?

Hello,

It looks like outdated files, Showtime crack maybe. But if you get the latest fix and copy it's crack to this folder you should be all right.

It works! After I updated the fix, it worked like normal. Turns out mods (Besides Awesomemod) were good to go!

Mystery solved
