Sims 3 game will not start after I hit the Play button in the Launcher.[SOLVED]

Post by Arielle08 on Sun 11 Nov 2012, 16:25

Hello!
Let me start from the beginning. I started off installing the Supernatural pack from here, then thought it was good, so then I installed the Generation and the Showtime expansion. I played it just fine for one day, but then when I went to go back and play it, it wouldnt start.
I opened the game launcher and hit play, but nothing popped up. So I uninstalled everything, the base game and plus the expansions.
Then I re-installed everything again plus the new Katy Perry expansion. But it is doing the same thing all over again.
But I did notice that in the game launcher, on the bottom where it shows the expansions glowing or not if you have them, the Supernatural one isn't glowing... I don't know if that has something to do with it... I just ran out of options on what to do.

Thank you,
Arielle

Its still not working. I uninstalled all the games again and did everything it said to do.... but for the step 3, there is no application to install the Ultimate Fix, only the cracks.... I installed the cracks, then this time it said the Showtime needs a disc. So I went into the Showtime rar. and took the crack from there and put it in the Bin for the game. Now its not doing anything again. =[

You have to download the ultimate fix, unzip it, then follow the included instructions. The cracks included with the games are all outdated now.

This may work. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Click on TS3W, and the game should start.
