Sims 3: Date Night and the mystery update. [SOLVED]

Post by sufferagette on Fri 10 Aug 2012, 18:36

Although you haven't technically posted Date Night yet (clothing set), in the store it says it requires an update to work (1.5.0.015000)... In usual EA fashion, it gives you an option to "learn more" which takes you to a page full of updates with nowhere to download them AND the launcher isn't prompting me to update anything. I'm usually very prompt on updating my game (through here) but clearly I'm missing something.

Can anyone help? I can't seem to find any information.

I hope I posted this in the right place.

Thanks!

Hello,

Hmmm... you should really test the items first and if it didn't work, you can always update your game to the latest version. (We'll help you with that, don't worry)
There's a big chance it just works, without the need of updating your game.

Hello,

It says that for (almost?) every one of the store objects on the official website, don't worry about it Very Happy
Besides, I think that's a very old patch level, considering we're on 1.36 now.

That's what I thought but when I go to install it, I get the "update needed" message in the installer.

So, what I'm getting from this, is that I have to install an *old* update? seeing as how I'm totally up to date.

Hello,

Where exactly did you download those files from?

Hello,

You probably have an untouched file, you need a decrapified one.
Since you're on MAC, you can't do it yourself. Ask someone to decrapify it for you, or look for a decrapified file. G4TW should have it in the next store updates.

I downloaded the one from the G4TW mediafire. It works fine.

Thanks for helping me figure it out, guys. Smile
