sims slow (when wasnt before) and other problems

Post by mayhemandcheese on Thu 13 Sep 2012, 04:14

Alrighty, where to start....First of all. I downloaded the sims 3 base game, outdoor living, high end loft stuff, pets, katy perry sweet..um...whatever that was, and ambitions once before, all downloads from the pirate bay. And it worked just fine. then i downloaded and installed the store updates from a torrent on pirate bay (please dont kill me cuz i dont remember exactly) but what the file is called in my download folder is "sims 3 store 1-38 (derapified)". it worked fine, though i got the "installation failed, make sure u have the most recent (or whatever it says) version of the game...or whatever" i just read about that though and how to fix it. But when i closed the sims 3 and tried to re-open it later. it would not open, and my computer slowly grinded to a halt, and would not respond. Sigh...im not so computer savvy, but i am not an idiot, (so please dont treat me as one Smile ) and pleeaase help! i have tried searching for my problems, but i couldnt find a good answer, so im posting this. oh, also, i got sims 3 to work, but i had to totally uninstall everything (custom content and saved games) but now when i start it, its says "you seem to have installed an unofficial version of the game, blah le blah" and basically said it may not work correctly, and asks if i want to quit or continue. i continue of course, but in game is SLOW and lags frequently and minor graphic issues in create a family. Argh, i know..im so vague, im sorry! hopefully someone will recognize these problems and be able to help. PLEAAASE help, i am SSOOOOOO frustrated!!! OH, i also did the ultimate fix, but the game launcher update thing says i am up to date, and i cannot hit the refresh button. i am downloaded the manual fix patch but it literally says 5 hours until it is downloaded. and nothing ever takes THAT long on my computer...not with fast internet.

ANYWAY. i think thats all, sorry its so long, but thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to read this. Please help! Thanks you Very Happy

Definitely use the manual patch, once you're able to, then reapply the fix. Let us know the results from that first, then I have a few more suggestions, as will other people. Smile
