Problems & questions about installing sims 3 + expansions

Post by Ellie11 on Tue 04 Sep 2012, 22:21

I've been downloading and installing then uninstalling and reinstalling the sims and expansions for 3 days now. I have followed the directions in this page carefully: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

When I try to run the patch I get the error message that I need to have the Sims 3 installed (Which I do, downloaded from G4TW) So then I decided to run the launcher and update it that way. After replacing the files in the folders with the ones from the crack folders, I run the game and get an error message (service initialization failed (0x024e424f). I have tried doing different things but also get the error message that I have a mod, which I don't have any.

Does the Sims 3 base game not work for Mac?

Will the one from this thread work? http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t2755-easy-method-of-installing-sims-3-base-gameexpansions-mac-guide

Do i NEED to have Late night installed? The only ones I want are Ambitions, Town Life Stuff & Pets :/
If someone could answer my questions & walk me through this I would REALLY appreciate it. Thank you so much!

Hello,

No, I'm afraid our The Sims 3 base game doesn't work on a Mac.

Hello,

And which expansions do you have installed at the moment?

I don't have any expansions installed. I got the base game to work but when I try to install the Pets expansion it says my game is not up to date. When I try to install the patch, I get an error message saying I need to install the Sims 3.
