The Sims 3 Various Issues

Post by AnthH1992 on Mon 03 Sep 2012, 18:23

Hi there guys :newfag: to the forum and I would like to thank you guys for making these possible expansions and great amount of time you have put into it.

Im having various issues with the game, i currently have installed Sims 3 Base (Which i bought) and Katy Perrys expansion and Showtime, (For my girlfriend !, Keep her quiet for awhile Very Happy ).

I have installed them correctly and done all the updates provided and the Sims 3 Fix file i download from here, when katy perry loads sometimes it stops at the end of loading bar and stops working, (Hasent done it since the FIX File,) I followed it step by step,

Main issue at the moment is getting past "Create a Household" Been loading for 20-30 mins now and had no Progress.

Be very thankful if someone could help me !

Presuming you have done everything correctly from the ultimate fix, could it be a mod you have installed? If you have any try removing them one at a time and starting your game to find the culprit.

Hello,

Hover your mouse over the base game icon on the launcher, in the lower-left corner of the screen.
It starts with 1.xx.xx .

I'm having an issue trying to avoid going to 1.38. I open the launcher and it says 1.38 available. I have the base game installed but when I follow the instructions on how to correctly install the sims 3 ---

1. Install The Sims 3 and all expansions you like, but install AT LEAST one of the following expansions: Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry Sweet Treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff, Generations.* (You may skip all the "# Crack" folders. You DO NOT need to use any "# Crack" folders!)
2. After you've installed all the games you want, download and apply this manual patch: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v133-fix-manual-patch

I cant get past step 1. I go to install an expansion pack and it says I need to update first. It will update to 1.38 so how I can avoid this?!

Hello,

I know this is probably going to sound annoying Facepalm but please open a new topic. It'll be easier for us to keep track and provide personal support.

Hello,

Only use the manual patch. Don't allow any patches after that. That shouldn't be a problem though. Just turn off the automated patching in the launcher, and click "no" if the launcher asks if you want the latest patch.

Hello,

Yes, that's correct.
If you use the manual 1.36 patch before installing any expansions, you won't be prompted to update during the installation of the expansions.
