Question About Ultimate Fix

Post by XtremeOne1 on Sat 08 Sep 2012, 23:06

So I just downloaded Supernatural...I have every "game" expansion pack installed. All of expansion packs, besides Supernatural, are retail versions. I patched my Sims to the latest patch before even finding out about being able to download the Supernatural. I tested it and my game loads fine and I can get into my town and my family, so all looks good there.

So what is the Ultimate Fix for and when should I use it? I'm thinking of downloading the "stuff" expansion packs, so would I use it then since their "base" downloads aren't up to date? And do I use the fix files on my retail games? I know I use the crack file but do I use the fix files? Or do I only use if for every new patch? Or do I only use the fix for games that aren't retail versions?

Sorry, I'm just a little confused about the ultimate fix.

Hello,

The Ultimate Fix helps you update the game to the latest version without getting the "Invalid File found" error during the update.
The Ultimate Fix also has a copy of the original .exe and .dll files you usually replace when cracking. And the best of all: the Ultimate Fix is always kept up-to-date to include the latest, working version of the crack for The Sims 3. (Whenever the game gets updated, the old crack won't work any more)

When you want to install new expansions, I recommend you just re-do these steps: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly - same instructions for retail games!

Awesome, thanks!! I think I get it know! Just one last question if you don't mind...

So if I was to install Town Life, Outdoor Stuff, then I should use the most recent Ultimate Fix on it but basically leave everything else alone, since it's up to date? Though I know Town Life and Generations have the same "Ultimate Fix" fix, so would that mess things up?

Hello,

Don't worry, we're here to help!
Let's see, when you install new expansions, just test the game first. If it works, it works. If it doesn't work, just re-do the crack -part of the Fix (See step 3 and 4 here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly ) and that should get your game running again.

And if not... you know where to find us!

Stupid question but the crack part of the fix..you mean the "#crack file" and not the files in the individual folders? So basically even with Town Stuff, I should only install the one "#crack" fix?

Hello,

Yes, you can skip all those folders, those are the original files I told you about.
You only need the crack that's in the "# Crack" folder. One crack, indeed. No need to crack all the individual expansions, only the base game.

Well they all seem to work! Woo! Thanks!

I have one last question, do I need to save all the files that were in the original .rar file? The one the crack came in, and that has the game data folder. I thought it would be nice just to save myself the space on my computer haha

Hello,

You can remove the extracted files and, if you like, also the .rar file. It's always best to re-download the latest version of the Ultimate Fix anyway!

Can I do the same for my retail games? Showtime also gets those extra files which take up space on my computer.

Hello,

There are not files to remove for your retail game. Which files do you mean, exactly?
