data1.cab and data2.cab?

Post by ElieJK90 on Tue 02 Oct 2012, 21:59

Hi!
I'm downloading all the torrents for the sims 3 one by one. So far I've downloaded the base game, world adventures, high end stuff and ambitions. I extracted them using winrar. In the base game folder there are two iso thingies with the instructions, which is good.
But in the other three there are the files right away with two "winrar" looking thingies called data1.cab and data2.cab which I can't extract cause it says it's "either an unknown format or damaged" or something. I just wanna make sure all is good before I go on an installing frenzy. I'm not much of a computer wiz so I attached a picture to show you what it looks like:

Hello,

Those are normal, setup uses these as it installs the expansion. The expansions don't have ISO's, they aren't mounted. Simply start the installation process by doubleclicking the setup. It's at the bottom of your screenshot, half-visible under "Sims3EP01.ico".

Hey!

I installed the game (up to generations) and it works perfectly! Thank you for everything. One small question though, when I want to install more expansions. I just install the expansion and crack it, right? I don't have to recrack everything?
