Downloading The Sims 3 Expansions & StuffPacks Question?

Post by Chalcedony on Fri 28 Sep 2012, 03:11

I have store-bought hard copies of The Sims 3 base game, TS3 Late Night & TS3 Supernatural. I'm planning to download the rest of the expansions & stuff packs from your website and was wondering if I absolutely needed to install the Store Update files? The games I own are fully registered & updated so my impression would be that it isn't necessary to get them, but I'm not fluent in torrenting game files and the like so I would love any input on this.

Also, bonus question that's bugging me, I know you aren't supposed to download the EA Download Manager/Origin when torrenting the game files, but I already have it downloaded for my preexisting games. Do I need to remove this program before beginning to download the torrents, or will it be fine to leave as-is?

I already have. I just wondered if those files were crucial to the download, and it doesn't mention them specifically there. I'd rather be safe than assume and make an error.

Thanks.

//EDIT

Well, I've pretty much downloaded, installed, cracked & patched
everything up and I'm about to the point where I can go ahead and try
out my game now. I just have one last question and I appreciate any
help. It's just a small one, but do I need to replace the files in the
Sims 3 Late Night with the crack files in the ultimate fix, given that
Late Night was a bought copy I already had? Thanks.

Hello,

Actually, no. That's not a crack. Only the one from the #crack folder is.

Thanks, I get it now (got everything installed perfectly a couple days ago. Forgot to re-post) You can mark this as resolved, and thanks again for the help. I really appreciate all the help this forum/games4theworld in general gives. I always really hated how people who upload torrents just leave everyone to fend for themselves when they have a problem. I'm glad I found a community of people who are willing to help everyone who needs it, even if the questions are a little dumb. lol
