Please HELP, Ive been trying to download sims+expansions for 2 weeks now.

Post by ilyranda on Wed 18 Jul 2012, 10:13

Okay, so i downloaded all my stuff from Demonoid,
I have tried the ulimite fix, but it confused me, because i guess ive been trying to do this for so long, my brain is just confused.
I really need someone to give me step by step instructions, as im doing this, cause theres things popping up on my computer that i dont see in the videos, instructions.
As of right now the only thing i have downloaded to my computer is Sims ultimite bundle (2011) found on demonoid. which has a nocd crack thing that i havnt downloaded yet..
I want to download all the expansions, but its saying it needs to be updated, ive tried patches, but it says i dont have sims downloaded.
in utorrent i have.....
katy perry sweet treats
town like reloaded
generations reloaded
pets
showtime
crack and keygen
(and some store items that i had downloaded on accedent, but i guess after i get this working if you wanna tell me what to do with these, it would be AWESOME. i know theres others expansions, and i want them, which i will also download...but i didnt want to download anything else until i start getting something to work.
any help would be greatly appreciated. im loosing my mind, and im having sims withdrawels.

Hello,

We are aware of this bundle and that it consists of G4TW files, but we didn't upload it ourselves, so I really don't know what's in it or how you installed it at all.
Did you have to install the base game and the expansions separately?

Hello,

Ok that's a problem, because the installer probably doesn't recognize the base game. I suggest downloading the base and all the expansions you want separately. We have all of it available here

Nevermind on the pm.
All of the instructions ive seen say to download all the expansions you want,
i had the game working fine on another computer (just the sims ultimate bundle) and then i started trying downloading new expansions and they would install, it said the game needed to be updated..So i tried to patch it or whatever...i did what the instructions told me to.. not sure where i found it...but it showed you how to manually update...as i was trying to do that, i told me that there wasnt a sims 3 on my computer...then after that the game wouldnt work right.
i tried to download a whole other sims file..and it kept popping up errors, it installed, after me clicking ignore 5 or 6 times per expansion..then i tried to play the game, and it got to the menu screen and wouldnt let me go any further.
So im starting over, on a new computer. and i dont want to do something wrong, and have to continue to start over...like i said, this has been going on for 2 weeks now. right now, i cant play the game that i have installed, it says "instert disk" which im sure would go away if i did the nocdcrack, but i read not to do that until you install the expansions.

//EDIT

Okay, im going to try that.

//EDIT

Okay, i have like 15 things downloading in my utorrent, and they say 23weeks estimated time
...is there any way to speed that up? and is it okay to uninstall the sims bundle i had?

Hello,

It's likely your game was modified by the patch even though it failed to install. Which is why you're unable to play now.
You can play now if you use the crack, but I can tell you without a doubt that you'll be unable to patch this or install more expansions because it's a modified installer.

Give the torrents some time to start downloading properly, the speed will probably pick up.
Though I can imagine you'd want to play sooner rather than later, so I suggest pausing everything except for the base game and one of the packs the fix requires (Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry Sweet treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff or Generations) that way you can install the base, use the manual patch and the crack from the fix.
You don't have to wait for everything to finish, you can install additional packs after you've cracked it. You may have to recrack after installing an expansion. Just don't use any of the cracks that came with the download.

Edit: Yes you can uninstall your ultimate bundle.

Hello,

Start by using winRAR to extract the base game files, the ISO's are there.
It's possibly the files got messed up because you used a program other than winRAR.

Hello,

It looks like you extracted the ISO's. This is what it looks like after you extract the base game file, and the 2 marked ones are the ISO's.

Hello,

Just install the expansions you want to add and test the game. If it works, don't fix what isn't broken. If it didn'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.

We'll keep this topic open for you, so please let us know the final result and whether you need any more assistance. Good luck!
