The Sims 3: Showtime Installation Problem

Post by Chicago on Mon 24 Sep 2012, 05:30

I downloaded the original, base Sims 3 from Origin, because I bought the game but cracked the disc so like I said I just re-downloaded it. Now I'm trying to download The Sims 3: Showtime from you guys on my Compaq laptop with the Windows 7 OS. I followed the steps, step-by-step from this link:

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

But when I try to play the game it still says:

No game disc found! Please insert The Sims 3 Showtime game disc before proceeding.

So what do I do to fix this? Like I said, I followed the link. I downloaded & installed the expansion. I did the manual update & used the '# Crack' folder from the Ultimate Fix, but still the same problem. Help me out please people, lol

Yes, I put .dll & .exe where they are supposed to be, & I restarted the launcher. Still no luck

Hello,

Can you show us a screenshot of the folder you copied the crack to?

Hello,

That's the correct folder, but not the correct files.
Please remove the "TS3EP01.exe" file from that folder and then follow these instructions: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
DO NOT skip any steps!

Your base game should be in C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin, Not C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. So apply the cracks related to it there.

Hello,

Oh, wait a second, if you downloaded from Origin, how come you have that "The Sims 3" folder in C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\ ?

Hello,

I have absolutely no idea how Origin works, but he mentioned having bought the game on disk, but it cracked. Is it at all possible that the game was redownloaded from Origin just in case, but hasn't been reinstalled as such?

I followed all instructions & it works just fine now. Thanks a lot people, I will definitely become more active on this forum because of everything it embodies.

My only other question is do I have to go through this process everytime I get a new expansion pack?

I think just need to re-apply the last few steps 11-13 of the Ultimate Fix, after you re-download the latest one when a new expansion pack some out.

Hello,

When you want to install a new expansion, just install it. If it works, it works.
If it didn't work, just re-do step 3 and 4 and it should work fine again: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Have fun!
Anything else we can help you with?
