Sims 3 updating and EP errors?

Post by insomniumm on Sun 16 Sep 2012, 06:53

Help
I'm seriously ready to kill myself. I've uninstalled and reinstalled for maybe 5 times total in the past few days and the problem was fixed (I just didn't update at all), but I recently downloaded the Supernatural expansion pack from here and now it says that my base game is not updatable and not compatible with the Supernatural EP.

All except, I can't update my Sims 3 because when I do, it tells me that I have made unofficial game modifications and the game refuses to work properly. I currently have Ambitions, Fast Lane Stuff, Generations, High End Loft Stuff, Late Night, Pets, and World Adventures--all installed in order. The problem mainly lies in after installing Generations and Pets--I tried uninstalling them all and updating before installing Generations and Pets too, but when I do that it tells me that the base game I have installed in more "recent than expected" and consequently the game refuses to work again.

So now I'm stuck in a precarious position and I have no idea what to do--I could just not update my Sims 3 game but that way I wouldn't be able to play Supernatural, and I really would like to. :c

(Also, my base game and all the other EPs except for Supernatural were bought from an online Chinese store for cheap and they most likely torrented it too--but all the expansions except for Generations and Pets come with the base game, so I can't reinstall them individually.)

Have you tried the manual patch? http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems-updated

Sorry if it doesn't help, I'm not familiar with macs, so will have to wait for someone who knows their way around one to come one for more help.

What I can remember of the errors was that it was a serious one--when I clicked play in the launcher, the screen started flickering and then it totally went out. I don't remember exactly what was said, but I immediately reinstalled it after that happened--I mean, I've gotten numerous errors since my first installation, like debug, unofficial game modification, unknown error, incompatibility etc. but after using the mac fix the game just completely died and there was no way saving it except to reinstall or get the original TS3.exe and TSLHost.dll files.

Hello,

The unofficial game modifications error can be caused by an outdated crack, or outdated mods. Both can be fixed easily.

I haven't currently transferred any of my mods to my Sims 3 folder for fear of losing them, so if that's the case it must be an outdated crack--I'm guessing probably in either Pets or Generations, but what steps should I take to get them all updated and playable? :s

Hi have you managed to solve your problem? If not, please try the following:

Please try these steps, while making sure it is a clean install. (All previous files uninstalled/removed. And old game data backed up.)

- Please try updating your base game from the launcher (only launcher, not the pop-up prompts)

If you face problems with the update, please consider downloading this base game instead:
thepiratebay[dot]se/torrent/5061019/The_Sims_3_(Mac__cracked

- After updating, check that your game version is updated to v1.38
- After that, install the expansion packs you want without applying any cracks. (In any order)
- After installing, make sure you have the latest Ultimate Fix downloaded. Unzip the file.
- Go to the "# Crack" folder and copy both files into you Game>Bin folder.

You should be able to play your game after this.
Do not worry about the instructions from base game telling you not to update it. The Ultimate Fix crack will fix it.

Btw, I'm asking you to update from the launcher since the manual patch does not seem to work for you.

Good luck!
