Dafuq?[SOLVED]

Post by xinwxhleak on Mon 27 Aug 2012, 12:51

I had just The Sims 3, no expansions or anything, working just fine. Anyway, I needed the Ambitions expansion, so I did AAAALLLLLLLLL the steps (K, there wasn't that many...) and now when it loads it says ... I just loaded it again to see exactly what it said, and now it closes right before it completely loads. I guess this isn't really the place for this thread any more, seems how I can't even get it to go past the progress bar.

Okay, I did one of the crash fixes, and now I am getting a pop up (as soon as it opens) saying "It looks like you have installed an unofficial game modification that does not match your current version of The Sims 3. We recommend that you either uninstall these game modifications or get updated versions of them - otherwise you may experience crashes or significant bugs.

Do you want to quit?
[Quit] [Continue]

I made sure that both Ambitions and the base game were updated. I'll edit in what happens in a sec, I'm just going to continue and see.

Edit
It crashed as soon as the progress bar hit 100%. Crying or Very sad

Hello,

Which expansions do you have currently installed?

Only Ambitions, but I have had the base game installed for a while now. No modifications or anything (didn't even know there was mods till last week. >_<)

When I had the crack in, it said that I need to have the disk inserted. That's why I originally made the thread. I'll get the Town Life Stuff expansion (smallest one) and try the crack from that one.

Hello,

You didn't really answer my question.
And I'm afraid that what you're going to do next is still going to result in a "Please insert disc" error.

Sorry for the late reply, I pretty much was going to fall asleep right after I posted that. I forgot to install one of (Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry Sweet Treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff, Generations.) and use the crack from that. I guess I have an old torrent because the one I got has a crack in the base game folder, but when I used it, it gave me the disk error.
So I downloaded the Town Life Stuff expansion (smallest one, so it would be faster) to use the crack from that like the "*MUST READ*" thread says.

You have to apply the crack from the fix, not the one included with the game download.

The crack from the fix does nothing because there is no "TS3W.exe" to replace, and when I run it nothing happens.

I tried doing updates again, and it updated twice, now it has the "TS3W.exe" in the base game and I put the crack in. Now it says "Unable to start game Service initialization failed (0x024e424f)" when I open it.

Hello,

Can you show a (detailed) screenshot of that folder? I'd like to see the "date modified" on the crack files.
Did you also install Town Life?

I just uninstalled everything, and I'm completely starting over, getting the new torrent(s) and everything.

//EDIT

I got it to work, but all my saves are gone. I think I'm just glad to have it working finally, thanks for all the help.

Edit
Got them back, just had to put them in the new save directory and restart the game. What a difference with the new expansions! Though, I see trees through a hill, not a big deal as I can still play the game. It is kind of annoying though.

Hello,

Did you have the installer delete your "The Sims 3" folder in Documents? Perhaps you can retrieve it from your recycle bin, if you can, your saves are in it.

Edit: Never mind Wink Good to hear you found them.
Don't hesitate to post if you have questions or problems again.
Happy simming The Sims Plumbob 1 topic closed.
