Sims 3 Fast Lane Stuff install help?

Post by xLilQnBx on Sat 30 Oct 2010, 21:53

OKay. SO.

Background information:
I have downloaded my retail version of the sims 3
I downloaded Ambitions, HELS, and WA from Games4theworld via thepiratebay.org & vuze. like..a whiiile ago.
I'm running 64bit...is the FL download for 64 bit?

I unzipped the .rar file using WinRar into my downloads folder
I opened up the Installation guide.
Inst. Guide tells me to click Sims3SP02Setup soo I do...
then I get the "you must update to continue" message from the install wizard..so I click YES to update.
a little grey box appears saying "Update in progress..please wait..." and then I get an unfortunate message saying
"Update of the sims 3 failed, Setup is unable to continue"

Why the heck does this keep happening!?!?!


ALSO. I don't remember exactly, but I think I recall his instructions on the other EPs saying that I can nolonger download sims 3 updates from the launcher...is this the case still?? Because I don't know where else to find the updates... and I'd like to have all the new features they added....

Hello,

Yes, it should work for 64 -bit. Let's clear things up, please do it as following:

1. Completely uninstall The Sims 3 + All expansions.
2. Restart your PC.
3. Install The Sims 3. Do not apply the Crack.
4. Install WA.* Do not apply the Crack.
5. Install HELS.* Do not apply the Crack.
6. Install Ambitions. Do not apply the Crack.
7. Update the Game to the latest version.
8. Apply these Updated cracks: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/fixes-f18/ts3-latest-crack-is-here-117-212-38-45-52-t607.htm
9. See if it works now.

aw damn.
Before I seen this, I uninstalled everything, and reinstalled them....however I DID apply the cracks...[cuz i didn't see this]..
Fastlane installed properly..but when I try to play it says I have to update the game because they're incompatible or something....
Should I install that update [I can update from 5.04.008001 TO 5.2.4.009001] Or does that crack you provided do the trick?

OH & thanks for replying, since every1 else ignored me =[ lol

So I have to download them for EACH expansion?Or just the base, and latest; fastlane. [I also have WA, HELS, and Ambitions.]

Am I the only one that has to wait 20mins after every download from that latest crack site? Or is there a way to get around that.

Can I update from my game launcher? I have a retail base game.. But I got WA, HELS, Ambitions, and Fastlane from you?

Hello,

You should apply the Fast Lane Crack. See if it works.

If you have a retail base Game, do not apply a crack for that one, then you should be able to Update the Game.

Hi,
If you do have a retail base game. Then, just skip the crack part for SIMS base game.

okay.
*I uninstalled everything thoroughly with Revo Uninstall.
*I restarted my computer
*I reinstalled my RETAIL version of The Sims 3 base game.

Your first instruction while downloading WorldAdventures says
Now open the Start menu. Type 'regedit' in the search box and press [ENTER]. Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sims\The Sims 3 and double-click on 'SKU'. Change the shown
number to 2 and press 'OK'. Close the Register Editor.

Well, I guess cuz i have Win7, i don't have HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sims\The Sims 3
but I have
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\ELECTRONIC ARTS\SIMS\THE SIMS 3
AND
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\ELECTRONIC ARTS\SIMS 3

but neither of them have an sku value...it just has one line that says:
(Default) Reg_SZ (Value not set)
and when I change that value [that is not sku] to 2...the installation doesn't work && says I have an invalid region or something of that nature.
Where the heck did the SKU go!!!!!!!!!! =[
[I DID have an SKU value on my last reinstall, like 2weeks ago...]

Hello,

You're looking in the wrong folder. Please navigate to exactly: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Wow6432Node > Sims > The Sims 3

There shouldn't be anything like "Electronic Arts" in it.
Also, since you're using a retail version of The Sims 3, please skip the steps in the WA Installation Guide where you have to apply the updates from "Crack 3".
