Hello,

On the launcher, right?
If yes, you can skip that error, it's just a bug on the The Sims 3 website that is loaded on the launcher's main screen.

You told me to download Origin >_< but the page doesn't load for me.
I asked my friend to do the same and he said it's all white and doesn't load.

Edit: I downloaded Origin but I still got the same Error. I ignored it and the game started but then.. I got this msg pop up.

"The sims 3

Hello,

Like I told you before, that "script" error is normal and there's no much you can do about it. It's a bug on the The Sims 3 webpage that is loaded on the launcher.
Anyhow, do you have any Mods or Custom Content?

Lmao @ the picture.

Yes I do, I downloaded some clothes and mods for this game, should I erase those? (edit: deleted all of those from my launcher)

The only thing Im worried about is that it's telling me I am going to crash >_<; and I dont want my beloved game not to be saved.. It wasn't like that before hand though.

Also I decided to ignore the pop up msg that talks about me

"The sims 3

It looks like you have installed an unoffical game
modification that does not match your current version of the sims 3. We
recommend you either unistal these game modifications or get updated
versions of them. Otherwise you may experience crashes or significant
bugs."


BUT now that I pess "contineu" instead of "quit" in the pick a family or create a new game I am UNABLE to start the game at all. I press "Play" and nothing happens.

It's already downloaded.. should I re download it AGAIN?.. if so do you mind showing me the link because last time you were on my TV I had the older version.. -_-; I'll try to find it though.

Edit: I downloaded the ultima fix patch thing.. followed the steps. The game started and everything. I clicked on create a new family and when I was done with the creating and everything I couldn't pick a time wish so the game did not start.. and then when I tried to put one of the already created house holds in a house.. My game just froze and everything stopped working.. Im getting frustrated *sigh*

Sounds like you're using an old crack... I updated to 1.38 on accident and used a 1.36 crack without realizing it, and had similar issues. What version of the base game are you running? Because the game won't update correctly if you have a crack installed (you MUST have the vanilla files to update), you might be stuck reinstalling...

Hello there,

That is caused by something else. I think you should be able to fix the time wishes by either reinstalling or re-doing the 1.38 manual patch, found in step 2: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

If you use the manual patch, you do not need the original files, as the manual patch doesn't "check" the files.
And reinstalling isn't the fix to everything, remember that!

I downloaded the manual patch and the ultima fix. I still can't create a sim because I can't pick a life time wish.

Hello,

In that case, please backup your savegames and then remove the base game.
After that, restart your PC and reinstall the base game, following the instructions on the "Must read" page.

Hello,

Savegames? That are your in-game progress saves. If you do not back them up, you'll lose your families and stuff.
You can back that folder up like this: http://games4theworld.org/sims3faq.html#how_to_backup_savegames

Hello,

The base game is the original Sims 3 game.
