Hello,

No, that could not be a problem. As long you've the Ambition expansion. And for your information, Expansion are optional.

Please follow this step, to solve your problem.

1. Completely uninstall The Sims 3 All expansions.
2. Restart your PC.
3. Reinstall The Sims 3. DO NOT APPLY THE CRACKS!
4. Install WA.* DO NOT APPLY THE CRACKS!
5. Install HELS.* DO NOT APPLY THE CRACKS!
6. Install Ambitions.* DO NOT APPLY THE CRACKS!
7. Install Fast Lane Stuff.* DO NOT APPLY THE CRACKS!
8. Install Late Night.* DO NOT APPLY THE CRACKS!
9. Update the launcher to the latest version.
10. Apply these updated Cracks: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/fixes-f18/the-sims-3-latest-cracks-download-t656.htm
11. The Game should work fine now.

* = Optional
Please do not APPLY crack for your SIMS 3 base game, since you've the retail version.

Hello,


Maybe this is clearer:

1. Completely uninstall The Sims 3 All expansions.
2. Restart your PC.
3. Reinstall The Sims 3.
4. Install WA.* DO NOT APPLY THE CRACKS! (Only skip "Crack 3" and "Crack 4")
5. Install HELS.* DO NOT APPLY THE CRACKS!
6. Install Ambitions.
7. Install Fast Lane Stuff.* DO NOT APPLY THE CRACKS!
8. Install Late Night.* DO NOT APPLY THE CRACKS!
9. Update the launcher to the latest version.
10. Apply these updated Cracks: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/fixes-f18/the-sims-3-latest-cracks-download-t656.htm
11. The Game should work fine now.

* = Optional


//EDIT

NOTE: Since you have a retail version of The Sims 3 base Game and Ambitions, you don't need to apply the Cracks for "Base game" and "Ambitions" at step 10!

Thanks so much for your help! Got it to work after reinstalling the sims 3 main game and using your cracks unfortunately I seem to have lost the previous game data - not too bothered as I can always start again but wondered if you had any idea why? thanks again - much appreciated xx

Hello,

If you select to delete the SaveGames during the uninstallation of The Sims 3, they'll be erased. But it's always recommended that you make a backup of the SaveGames via: (My) Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Saves
Looks like you erased them during uninstallation, sorry.

When uninstalling World Adventures a few months ago for Ambitions, it erased my game data regardless my having said not to. Is a weird bug :s so I back up my data now, 'cause who knows if it'll disregard again in the future
