mac update 1.38 via the launcher? [SOLVED]

Post by Davey223 on Thu 06 Sep 2012, 08:05

Im kinda a noob at this stuff but would it make sense to update via the game launcher to 1.38? Or will that mess everything up?
Im done downloading supernatural and after i enter the serial it says "game not updated etc". do we absolutely need the patch to be manual? Got torrent from tpb

My take on it is that once you have the crack files in you have to do manual. For me it offered me to update, started downloading and then it just stops and offers again etc.... I had applied the supernatural crack before...then again my Showtime was cracked too, so... My previous EPs were bough, so updating was always a breeze.

Hello,

We recommend the manual patch, which you can find here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t3597-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v138-fix-manual-patch-updated

It won't check your files and replace all corrupt files with their originals.

Hello Davey223,

Glad to hear you got it to work! So it's not that hard after all.
You might want to consider a "How-to" topic in the "Fixes (Mac)" section, to help others!

Thank you and I hope you enjoy the game now! Topic closed. Wink
