Can't open Showtime.[SOLVED]

Post by Naessly on Wed 03 Oct 2012, 18:17

Alright so I downloaded the sims 3 showtime from TPB, since I can't post external links I'll give you the name of the torrent: The Sims 3: Showtime [FULL] * Games4theworld *
It downloaded quickly and just fine but then when I opened it...



I just have noooo idea what to do with it! As you can see I have two other torrents at the top of my page, when I opened them they came up as folders and everything needed was inside these folders. The thing is, this new torrent I downloaded came up as this ''file'', I don't even know what type of file! I tried opening it with virtual clone drive, poweriso, I tried to unzip it but it simply doesn't do anything at all!
Is it broken?

If there's a program to download that will mount it, please tell me I will download it Smile

PS: This is the second showtime torrent I downloaded. The first was the folder you see at the top: The_Sims_3_Showtime_FLT
This one I installed correctly but when I started the sims, it said that EA was not able to verify it was a correct version or something like that? So if you have an answer for this one, I guess it would be easier because atleast I can install this one!

I also don't have much internet per month lately because..we're short on money =\ And I have to be careful, so no I will not be able to download a new torrent. I've already downloaded 2 torrents this week, so I can't download torrents anymore untill the end of october.


Thank you!

Hello,

All our downloads are in .rar format. Please right-click on the "File" and choose "Open with...". Now look for and select "WinRAR" from the list.
After that read the included "# Installation Guide.txt" on how to install the game.

Good luck and please let us know the result!

Thank you for your answer! I finally installed showtime and played for about an hour before the game closed itself.


Edit: I re-opened the game to see if it was a one-time bug and now I can't even get past the loading screen.

Nope.

And thank you Lady ElDi, I'll go check it right away.

//EDIT

Alright so I tried the first one with the DEP and it didn't change anything.

I was about to try this one but...I don't know how to get there ^^'''
I go to my control panel and I don't see anything about my video card.
There's
another option about playing sims in windowed mode , lowering the
game's resolution, etc...but I can't. The sims crashes before I even get
to go to options. So this is pretty much my last option.

4. Problems with some NVIDA, ATI etc. graphic cards:

shimonaH wrote:Everyone,
who gets this error: Just open your NVIDIA or other video card control
panel, find The tab 3D settings, Click manage 3D settings, scroll down
and you'll find that tab called "Vertical Sync" Once u find it, select
Force off and restart your computer! Worked for me! Playing with no
crashing to the desktop!



Edit:
Well I finally managed to get into the game. I went to shopping mode
and it froze. It doesn't show me the objects that I can buy, so I try to
go back to my sim but it simply doesn't do anything.
Here's what happens:

Hum...I can't seem to download gamebooster. Either it gives me a link to subscribe to something and simply doesn't give me the download, either it crashes my internet.

Hello,

Do you get the "unofficial game modification" error?

Yep I get that. Right now I'm trying the ultimate fix, don't know if it can help..
Since I can't update my game (and I started wondering if this could be the problem?), I started downloading the manual patch that the installation guide recommended. Been downloading for hours and hours now and internet randomly crashed, so I have to re-do it.

I'll update about it later, I hope this will help =\

Alright, it took me a while to do it because I was gone all weekend. yesterday I managed to play for about an hour and there was no crashing and I bought go in buy mode Smile Yay!
The only problem now is that all my locations lost their names and are set as ''no visitors allowed''. I deleted some of them to put the original locations back but I can't ''buy'' most of the locations to replace them so it's pretty annoying because I don't know their names or what they are supposed to be =\

I'll try to start my game over though, maybe it's because it's an old game file?


Thank you for your help!

EDIT: I just made a new game and all the locations are back to normal Smile yay! It's all fine now, thank you again!
