Sims 3 seasons won't launch *Initialization failed (0x024e424f) [SOLVED]

Post by jjplay175 on Fri 16 Nov 2012, 17:51

Ok i have read through the install file a few times now and i made sure i did it 100% correct, i have been cracking games for years now so i do know what im doing *Just stating*

if you want to give me any other installation instructions i will happily double check again but i doubt it will work, I downloaded it off your piratebay link installed it and when i try to run it i get a black screen right after opening it with the error

*Unabled to start game
*Service initialization failed (0x024e424f)

*What i have tried*

.I have reinstalled it 3 times in total
.I have used the crack that came with the download and the one from the fix
.I have tried copying the *Game /and/ GameData* files over into the install dir
.I have tried (Downloads\Seasons\Game\Bin) renamed Launcher and TS3 to .exe and moved them to install dir and run that
.Tried using 3 diffrent keys *Doubt it would work* but tried it anyway

Also when i run the launcher i get this error

(There was an error during startup. Please see the log for more details)

can't find the log?

Sorry i haven't been in here to check but you see the thing is i have

Base, Ambitions, Generations, Late Night, Pets, Showtime, Supernatural, World Adventures, Seasons

And they are the only ones i have in the registry... so i mean this makes me think then that Seasons is not installing itself correctly? it's in the registry but the error has only started since i installed Seasons

Although it could be something different completely

Ps: I did uninstall Seasons and then i checked my registry and it's not in there now but i'm still getting this error... I'm going to try manual patch and see if this fixed it.

-Edit- Due to an internet problem i'm using my mobile as a modem so i can't download the patch right now but i'l keep you updated

Hello,

This particular error indicates that you either have an outdated crack, or you're using outdated mods.
You're already on the latest patch level, so you don't have to worry about downloading the patch.
If you're sure you used the Seasons crack, and placed it in the right folder, look at your mods.

Yeah, if you have installed Seasons it did prompt you to do the update to 1.42. And it would have used the manual patch in the folder you extract under Support/Updates.

Having the same problem on my fiances desktop... The game goes from launcher to black screen, then nothing.. tried the regedit, reinstalling, reinstalling EVERYTHING (have all expansions), and the ultimate fix. Also, tried to re-manual patch to 1.42. Nothing. Installed on my laptop.. Perfectly fine. lol...

At first it was an EADM error.. Fixed that by uninstalling EADM.. now its the service failure.. Not sure what else to try here. Fiance is a little bummed he can't see what my hype is all about. lol

I found the problem and i feel a little stupid now

I moved all my Sims 3 games over from my e drive to my c drive and deleted all the old files except Sims 3 base and Sims 3 supernatural

I changed all the values in reg edit to make this work but it seems that either when i updated it changed the Dir of the game or i simply changed every value but missed the base game... Meaning that when i cracked the game i cracked the wrong one...

but i don't get it because i modded the Sims 3 base in my C and it worked... so i can only assume the Dir changed?

(Thanks for all the help everyone)

Tried to Installing Seasons again but the update fails... how do i update my game with the launcher or better yet how do i find the version of my base? because i think i might need some middle update

//EDIT

Ok so i updated it and installed Seasons *Again* and the launcher gives me the same error as before

The launcher used to say it was the wrong version and now it says
(There was an error during startup. Please see the log for more details)

and .exe gives me
----------------
Unable to start game
Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb)
--------------------------

Different code..? don't know if it means anything

--------------
edit
----

When ever i update it resets the Registry back to the E drive... But i even removed the game from E, any idea's?

OK got the blighter to work! so i will post everything i did here incase it can help anyone else
=========================
If your game is in the wrong place to where you want it then simply
1.Delete the Base that you do not want
2.Update.. *Wait*
3.Go to where the old base was, if it is there again simply drag all these files to your new one and replace
4.Delete the old base *again*
5.Check registry to make sure the Dir is right again, If not simply set it again
6.I used the Ultimate fix *(Seasons)* crack... Didn't work, tried *(# Crack)* Didn't work.. Tried base game - Worked

If
you tried to move your game before the seasons install and you have the
issue do all of this if you want it moved otherwise just crack where
the old game is and keep that instead *Confirm if this works?* should do

Meh, issue worked itself out I guess. Played around with the fix a few more times and the manual patch for 1.42, screaming at it "work damn you!!" LOL Guess it didn't like being yelled at. Wink
