Game won't work

Post by Lolaface on Wed 08 Aug 2012, 22:33

So i followed all the steps on downloading the game, i installed all the new patches and what not, and i even put the cracks in the right places. At first the game would show me "unkown error occurred". so i downloaded the mac fix. but nothing happened. Now the game won't even start up. every time i try to open the game, the icon shows up on my screen but then vanishes. I'm in need of help. =[ Help

i used crossover to download it and install it. would that also be giving it a problem?
i'm downloading the patch now.

Hello,

Crossover? Hmmm... there's no need to do that, as far as I know.
Wait a second, are you trying to install the base game or the expansions?
And where did you get the download(s) from?

i downloaded the base game and the expansion packs, i got it from piratebay.org.
i'm not sure why, but my computer made me use crossover to install the games correctly. i have two different installs in my mac; the pc version, which i used crossover, and the normal mac one.

Hello,

For the base game, don't use our version, that one doesn't work.
As for the expansions, our expansions work fine on a Mac, although you need to extract the .rar file using Stuffit Expander and then create a .DMG file out of the extracted files, using the Mac integrated Image Creator, something like that.
Don't use Crossover at all.

Re-try using this method and let us know the result, please.

Hello,

We'll help you figure it out, don't worry.
Start by getting a different version of the base game though, RELOADED will do. After that's installed, start on page 5 of this guide to see how the expansions are installed. The guide is outdated, but everything from page 5 onward still applies.

Hello,

This link should be working fine: http://games4theworld.org/Guides/The_Sims_3_MAC_Guide.pdf
Be sure you've Adobe Reader installed, otherwise the page might not open.

Hello,

Nope, she's right. Both our links are not working.

Hi Admin,

All of them seem to be working now. Perhaps the site was down for a little while?
