Non-working buttons on the launcher

Post by mzkim3017 on Sun 18 Nov 2012, 12:35

Hi, I am having a slight problem with my launcher. If I click anything such as, the New Messages link, or New Uploads, or Friend Requests link it doesn't do anything. I can't even access the News from my launcher. This has been occuring for some time, and it hasn't quite bothered me since I can just go online and check Messages, etc. But since they've updated the launcher to show "You have New Gifts" I would really like to see what exactly they are. If you are familiar with this problem could you please show me how to correct it?

Hello,

Doesn't sound familiar, but do you have Origin installed?

Yes, I do. I've recently updated it since Seasons came out.

Hello,

Oh, that's weird.
It might not be related, but please try re-doing step 2 to 4: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
Be sure to re-download both the manual patch and the Ultimate Fix.

I've done as you've told, but same results. Could I possibly have a faulty Sims3launcher file? I noticed them during the process of applying the cracks.

//EDIT

Update: I realized that when clicking on "Daily Deal", "Mystery Bag",
and "Exchange" it will move from page to page. Also, when I click on
the "Forward" and "Back" arrows it'll move those pages. But when it
comes to clicking on something that's linked to the internet I can't get
any response.

Hello,

If you had, step 2 of that link should've fixed the problem. (The manual patch)

Let's see, you just click them and nothing happens? The launcher doesn't even close?
If not, please try as follows:

*Backup your savegames

1. Completely uninstall The Sims 3 base game only, using Your Uninstaller! Pro, which you can download from www.games4theworld.org . Choose "Super" mode during uninstallation.
2. Restart your PC.
3. Reinstall the game following these instructions very carefully: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly (DO NOT skip any steps!)
4. Test the game and let us know the result.

Good luck!

//EDIT

Also try updating your Java: http://java.com and your Flash Player: http://get.adobe.com/uk/flashplayer/

I apologize. I must have come off vague when I said buttons. I am able to close the launcher; go from "Welcome" to "Downloads" to "Uploads", etc. It's just while I'm on the Welcome page and I click on anything that would normaly link me to thesims3.com website I get no response. I sincerely apologize for my vague-ness again.

Hello,

I've never even given those links a second thought. What is your default browser? Perhaps it doesn't work with certain browsers when they're set to default.
You can test that by (temporarily) making Internet Explorer your default browser.

Hi mzkim3017!

Normally I don't trust (IE9). But try Google Chrome.

Thanks,

Star유성
