Sims 3 Pets - "Error reading game files". [SOLVED]

Post by oo0MadHatter0oo on Mon 19 Nov 2012, 20:42

First off I downloaded the Sims 3 Base game, which opens fine.
Next I downloaded "The Sims 3 - Pets", I unrared it using stuffit, then created a disk image using disk utility, then dropped all the contents of the extracted folder into the image. I tried opening the installer, it opened, everything seemed to work fine.
After I got past choosing where to save it, right as it went to start the installer it gave me this error:

Error reading game files
$INSTALLVOLUME/Support/Readme/cs/ctimne.txt

Then the installer crashes.
Can this be solved by downloading the Pets (fixed) file instead? If so I'm downloading it right now but I'd like to know if thats the real problem.

Yeah, download the Fixed one, I know there is a work-around for it with Window's, but now sure how to do it with a Mac.

I've downloaded the v1.42 patch, but last time when I tried to update the base game, the installer for pets told me that the version of sims was "newer then expected" and didnt complete the installation

//EDIT


Alright nvm, I tried the same process again with the fixed files and it worked this time Smile thanks for the help
