cc not installing-needs unknown software update

Post by Anonthoughts on Mon 12 Nov 2012, 10:18

Hi. :newfag:

1)Everytime I launch a lot of my cc isn't shaded out (looks like it's not installed) however if I check it, install it, etc it says it's installed then shades out. Not all the cc though. Just some.
2)Also, I have cc that the launcher says needs a software update?? erm...such as? they don't give you a hint.
My internet is disgusting at home, so can't update Origin at all. Though origin is pretty kak as well, as it says it's not connected to the internet when in fact it is.
3)AND I also have that lovely issue where the game randomly restarts my computer.

I've got every update, patch, fix and prayer known. My graphics, sound, boards have been updated properly. My computer specs are a lot more than the game requires. I run win7, 32bit and have 8g ram installed. Soon to be 64bit/16g ram. (when i have the energy to re-install half my life)

I have all games and expansions (bought) except for katy perry and diesel. And have all neighborhoods as well. (not so bought) and a disgusting amount of cc. (probably over 100g worth)

I also have the ultimate fix from here (I owe someone a lot of beer for that fix)
I'm not very tech savvy, so instructions should please be fit for a 5yr old to follow. Wink

Hello,

You won't have to update Origin, what you can try is this for the "software update" CC problem. Although it may not work for some items, there have been problems with stuff from the exchange for example.
Another thing you could try, is to extract sims3packs into packages with this tool. They go into the mods\packages folder after that.

The launcher can be weird about installed items sometimes. If it says an item isn't installed, but it shows up in game, simply don't worry about it.

For your final issue, have a look here.

Thank you very much. The "software update" cc is ironically store stuff and exchange stuff. (EA does generally suck) *sigh*

Will take me a few days to do the other stuff. Between work and more work. Will let you know how it goes.

Hello,

You should be able to get the store stuff at least to work after using the decrapifying tool. It has been designed specifically to remove the encryption from store objects.

Hi.

So EA's exchange sims must be really crap, cause decrapping them didn't work. :/ such a bummer as they so pretty.

Though did work for one of my other sets. yay.
Going to try diving board today...(that's what made my pc restart last time)
