The Sims 3 has unexpectedly quit?

Post by AudreyHarris on Sun 25 Nov 2012, 15:51

Hi everyone! I really need help!

I've had the Sims 3 and generations (both downloaded from here) since July, everything worked absolutely fine until yesterday!
Now, it keeps unexpectedly quitting, not even 5 min into the game. I thought i didnt have enough space from all the store updates i get from MediaFire, but ive uninstalled everything and i still have the same problem.

Help im such a Noob

Hello,

And you're on Mac? Just asking because the base game from here doesn't work right on Mac, to make sure we're going to handle your problem from the right point of view.
Are you using mods/cc other than store updates?

Did you download the base game from here too? Lady Eldi says is not compatible with Mac. So maybe that's the reason of your problem.
And it could be the 1.42 update too, because it is giving crashing problems too. I suggest you too uninstall everything, save your current games and install both again but staying in 1.39 update, ok?

Try to do this and tell me the outcome.

okay correction, i downloaded the base game from the instructions i got herehttp://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t2755-easy-method-of-installing-sims-3-base-gameexpansions-mac-guide

but the base game was taken from a torrent on pirate bay, then i got generations from here.

Im really nervous about uninstalling everything because it took me FOREVER to install it the first time ( i dont understand most of the topics here)

Version: 8.0.152.018008
is that 1.42? or 1.39?

Ok, don't be nervous because is very easy.
If you only have base game and generations, it won't take very much in uninstalling. Just put the "Electronic Arts" folder in your desktop (you can find it in Documents) in order to save your games.
Once you've done that, I suggest you to use the 1.39 super patch to stay in that version because 1.42 is giving problem to Mac users. So do NOT update the game to its recent version, which is 1.42.

You can download the 1.39 super patch from here: http://www.strategyinformer.com/pc/sims3/patch/46055.html
Just click on download and wait till it finishes.

Then, with your game uninstalled, your games folder saved and the super patch downloaded; you have to do this:

1) Install base game Sims 3. Don't open the launcher when it finishes installing.
2) Update base game with the super patch 1.39 version.
3) Install Generations.
4) Download this: mediafire.com ?tdnny39ej6q05kh This is the Crack for 1.39 version.
5) Unzip the rar and get the files from #Crack folder and put into the Applications/The Sims 3 folder and then right-click the The Sims 3 icon. Now, click "Show package contents" and navigate to: Contents/Resources/transgaming/c_Drive/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin/
6) And that's it! It should be done.

Do this and tell me the result, ok?

Ok, can you post me the link where you got the base game from, please? That maybe happened because of the region. Perhaps yours is region 1 (USA) and the patch is for region 2 (Europe).

I had that one when I started to play too, and I thought I couldn't add any expansion with that version. So I delete it and downloaded this one: http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/5022393/The_Sims_3_-_Razor1911_Final_MAXSPEED

So I suggest you to download this one because it works great. The installation is the same.

One thing is uninstalling and another VERY DIFFERENT thing is deleting, dear! You didn't need to delete Generations. Very Happy

Did you install the base game?

Ok, you can okay the base game meanwhile. BUT, I don't have the cracks for the 1.38 version. I only have those I gave you before, the ones for 1.39.
Why don't you update the base game to 1.39 and maybe it will solve any possible problem it may have? Wink

And don't worry, I was new too.

By the way, what uploader? What do you want to upload? DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE! Laughing

I can give you my email, sure. But I'm going to teach you how to upload them here.
Can you see this icons up here? "B I underlined U...". If you click on "Host an image", you can choose the file (the screenshot), then click on Host it. And you will have three options, choose the first one and copy that link it makes. Don't copy clicking on the "copy" button, get the link with cmd + C. And paste it on your next reply.
Hope you understand this.
