Sims 3 Needs an update after using the ultimate fix? [SOLVED]

Post by Kayyttee on Mon 03 Sep 2012, 01:15

Hey everyone

I have been trying and trying to install and play the sims 3, all expansions up to pets, but seem to be making some kind of mistake as i do it each time. I am following the instructions from the must read and the installation instructions in each .rar, but every time i get them all installed, I am told that i must update the sims 3 as the base game is incompatible with the current expansion. I have used the latest manual patch, and the only update available in the download manager is to 1.38, which i know i cant use yet. Anyone any idea where im going wrong? I have uninstalled and re-installed the game 4 times now, so likely whatever mistake im making is blatantly obvious to someone else, but not me.

thanks for any help anyone can give me Smile clearly i am useless at installing things lol

Hello,

Welcome to the Games4theworld Forum!
On the installation of which expansion do you get that error? And can you please post a screenshot of the error?

Hello,

She already has though, see the opening post Wink
This message can be ignored. The installer is just telling you that it didn't expect this game version and to keep in mind your expansionpack will be unpatched. You may simply click "ok" and proceed with the installation.
There will be no need to patch individual EP's though, when you finish installing everything, simply installing the manual patch again will also fix what the individual EP patches fixed in the past, since EP's are no longer patched separately with the release of Generations.
