Error when I try to run Late Night. [SOLVED]

Post by lightstacy on Fri 07 Sep 2012, 15:15

Hello,


It's my first time posting here and I'll try to explain my problem the best I can.

I have the base game retail version and I've installed Pets, World Adventures and Supernatural. The installations went smoothly and I can play them just fine. But then I tried to install Late Night and it's always giving me an error of some kind, sometimes "No disc found" sometimes just an unknown error. So I uninstalled it to be able to play Sims.

I've tried uninstalling it and installing it again. I've applied the 1.38 patch and after the ultimate fix. Nothing worked. My launcher says I have game version 15 confused

When I read the installation guide I noticed there was a crack there for Ambitions and I don't have that one installed. Do I need Ambitions to run Late Night? Or is there some other expansion (like Stuff ones) that I need?


Hope you can help me! Sad

Hi again,

I did it precisely as instructed and still didn't work. Luckily I had been downloading Ambitions already and decided it wouldn't hurt to try. Did that plus the patch plus the ultimate fix. And it seemed to do the trick!

But now my saved games won't work Sad I have two Bridgeport files: .sims 3 and .sims3backup. I copied them to the Saves folder in My Documents but when I run the game and go to the neighborhood, my sims don't show up in the dashboard or on the side (there are no squares with my sims faces in them or the bust of the sim) so I can't control them or make them do anything. The wishes, aspirations and thoughts are also messed up... I really don't want to lose my families but I can't even select another one or move this one to a new neighborhood.

Any ideas?

Nope, I never had any when I saved those games either... WhatDidUJustCallMe?

//EDIT

Oh and I forgot to add, there's this file called Bridgeport.sims3.bad..... I don't like the sound of this. But I did delete from the Saves and tried launching the game with only the other two and didn't work either Sad

Hello,

If you delete bridgeport.sims3.bad, you also need to rename bridgeport.sims3.backup, just remove the backup part.

But if I remove the backup part then both files will be named Bridgeport.sims3... Or do you mean delete the .sims3 before renaming the .sims3.backup?

Could this be a bug from WA? Because I've read many people complain about this but none have yet shared a solution except this one player who said if you delete the files named Egypt, China and/or France then it might work. I wanted to try that but I wanted to know if there was another thing I could do without losing my adventures...

Hello,

Just be sure to make a backup of both files and then try what Lady ElDi suggested. Remove the new save and replace it with the old .backup file, by removing the .backup extension.
