Help!!!

Post by OregonGirl2012 on Wed 18 Jul 2012, 04:01

I'm sure you guys have heard this time and time again... And I've done soooo much research, and I do believe I did it correctly (more than once). I have a bought version of the Sims 3 Deluxe, comes with the ambitions. I am currently trying to install Generations (off of this site). I've followed the directions to a T. Installed the manual fix, and the ultimate fix. Used the cracks when said, and now when I try to move the fix files to my main sims 3 bin, it says that I do not have the permission to make those changes and it will not allow me to. I've been trying to do this for 3 days now, and I can't get pets either. It does the same thing. I've even watched the ultimate fix video, re-installed EVERYTHING on several occasions, and I don't know what the hell I'm doing wrong!! Is there something I'm missing? Also. When I double click on generations now, it won't open at all.

Hello,

Are you logged on to your pc as the administrator?
It's also possible that this isn't going to work at all because of your base game deluxe version.

I'm logged in to my computer like usual. I can't figure out how to change the admin settings though. There should be no reason why it does that, lol. It's my computer.

Why wouldn't it work because of the deluxe version? Last night I restarted, and I got to the point where it would open, then I got the "need to insert disk... blah blah blah." So I just uninstalled everything hoping that someone could help me. The other day I had quite a few of them downloaded and working but I downloaded lucky palms... Not from you guys, which I'll never do again, and I had to uninstall and reinstall everything because it screwed it all up. I don't know how I got it all to work but I can't get crap to work now.


*later this morning* I figured out how to change the administrator thing. And it says that I am the administrator... But when I got that pop up earlier I told you about it didn't give me an option to put in my password to okay it or anything... ****so frustrated****

Hello,

If it worked before it should work now.
Is your launcher or game active when you attempt to copy the crack files?

Okay so here goes!! I'm going to try installing generations one more time. I'm going to write down EVERYTHING that I do, and all of the errors that I receive, that way if it doesn't work. Maybe you can help me Smile

//EDIT

OK... Soooooooo Here's the results!!!

1: Installed base game Sims 3 Deluxe (includes ambitions)
2: Downloaded Sims 3: Generations
3: Started install - received error : "the sims 3 needs to be updated before this product can be installed. Setup will now attempt to update the sims 3. Do you wish to continue?" (i'm going to select yes, then do the manual update later.)
4: Finished update, inserted keygen.
5: Chose "typical install"...
6: Finished install. Now going to download the "ultimate fix."
7: Moved the #Crack from the fix to program files x86 - electronic arts - the sims 3 - game - bin. Received error "you'll need to provide administrator permission to move to this folder." Selected "continue" Files transferred successfully.
8: Started to "launch" game. Said that there was an update available. Did I want to continue? Chose yes.
9: Launcher is now updating to 1.36.45
10: Update successful
11: Hit play and got the error "no game disc found! please insert the sims 3 generations game disk before proceeding."


So what do I do now?

Hello,

You updated the game after cracking it, so the crack has been overwritten by the patch.
Copy the crack again and it should work, as long as the ones that are in there are actually overwritten. Make sure that they are by checking that the "date modified" changes to match the crack files.

Yeah. Before you posted this, and after I posted my last one. I restarted my computer, moved the fix files again to game/bin. Launched the sims, said there was a patch available. It updated, and it works!!! So when I decide to download another ep, do i follow the same steps that I just took?

Hello,

Well, just install the expansion(s) you like. If it works, it works. If it doesn't work, just re-do step 2 to 5: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly and you should be good to go!
