I downloaded another time Sims 3 from Games4theworld.org and still doesnt work!!!!! Do you know how to uninstall it completely since all I do to delete the app is putting the app in the trash. I'm really desperate Sad

To completely uninstall, use the application in your Sims 3 folder called Sims 3 Uninstaller.

Here is a detailed guide on how to do it:

I'm having the same problem with the dmg. I followed all the steps exactly but when I go into the dmg folder I click on "The Sims 3 Seasons Installer" and the icon comes up on my dock and just bounces then goes off. Nothing else comes up. I've also tried the other files but they're all .exe. (Downloaded Seasons from G4TW)

And you are using Stuffit Expander to extract the file initially?

Not using Stuffit was the problem! Thank you. I had a slight problem before but I got it fully working now. Very Happy

Maybe i have to change the sku number, but i don't know how to do it on mac.

By the way, all the other add ons work so i guess the problem is with sims 3 WA and sims 3 supernatural...

i have the same problem but with every expansion :/

Finally works for me!

first of all do a clean uninstall (read the comments on the page 3 of this post, the one with the bluebellflora link and open it)
1 install sims reloaded
2 install the manual patch
3 follow the instructions on this post
4 install the "mac ultimate fix" (follow the installation guide step by step)
5 at the step # 11 install again the manual patch and then crack it (steps 12 and 13 i think)
enjoy!

i have mountain lion installed (mac mini late 2012)
i hope works for you!

Alex

Can you delete the .dmg files afterward? Cause they take up space...

Yes,you can delete them. However,if you have an external HDD,move .dmg files into that. It is good to keep them somewhere. You won't need to download them again and again if a problem pops up ^_^

Same here Sad I'm trying it again and again. I'll share it here if I find a solution. Right click on "the sims 3",click on "show package contents".Find info.plist and tell me your base game version,which is under the ClientBuild. If it is 1.48,You can use admin's solution here : http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t3597-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v150-fix-manual-patch

Ok, I followed every single instruction for installing the base game. It installed but when I tried running it, it won't load. The start up screen comes up, but when I press play, it just disappears. It's not even in the activity monitor.

I went into my applications, deleted the application and tried installing it again and it is doing the same thing. Can someone tell me how I can fix? Thanks.

Maybe try downloading a different crack file and see if it changes your situation? (You should be replacing both the info.plist and TS3.exe files.)

EDIT//
I now remember having a problem launching the base game back in the day; just got reminded of it!! Sorry I've been having a laggy brain all week Razz The issue for me was not having cider (the emulator that allows the game to run on Macs) start up for some reason, and I had to manually launch it myself. If you'd like to try that,
1. Do a clean uninstall of your game. Below is a tutorial on how to check if you have any preference files that should be deleted:

2. Install game
3. Apply crack
4. Manual patch
5. Go to: Applications/The Sims 3/Contents/MacOS/cider and launch your game from there

@jatyro91
When you create your .dmg, you should see a new disk appear under the "Devices" panel in the sidebar of your Finder. Click on that, use it to install your game, and unmount it when you are done & ready to play.

Sorry, I know this was posted a long time ago, but I was hoping maybe you can still help. I did all of this and the launcher finally stopped quitting on me, but now when I try to press play and launch the game, it says the disc can not be found. I tried unmounting and remounting the iso but it is still happening.

Can anyone help?

Hello,

Just send me a PM and let me know for which The Sims 3 games you need a serial number. I'll then send you the needed codes.

Hello. (I hope I'm in the right area for this sort of question. I didn't feel it was necessary to create an entirely new thread considering it is technically based on this one.) But to my point.. once you've successfully installed the Base Game and desired expansion packs and you've applied the cracks, etc.. are you allowed to delete the .rar files for the games you've torrented and the .dmg files you've mounted? I'm just wondering because I don't exactly know the process of how everything works without a physical CD and such. Thanks!

Hello Simbob,

Yes, you can delete the .rar files or .dmgs right after you installed the games you want. But I suggest you to keep them somewhere, as we can encounter with a problem in game and sometimes we need to reinstall. If you have a external hard disk, you can save them there.

And please do not hesitate to ask if you have something in your mind.

Hey guys I downloaded a stuff pack from you and i did all the steps but I couldn't get it to work, then i noticed it was because I had used the unarchiver instead of Stuffit to expand it, so i downloaded it and tried expanding it but it says "The Stuffit Engine was unable to determine the file format". What can i do to unrar it?
