Expansions -_-.[SOLVED]

Post by Limekiller on Mon 26 Nov 2012, 20:57

So, like most people, when I need to install an expansion, it tells me I have to update the game first. I click "yes," and a message box pops up telling me to wait and that the update is in progress. How long should this take? It worries me because I tried to update without the expansions and the installer just sat there for a day. So far the expansinon installer has been going for 45 minutes and nothing is different.

Basically, I want to know: how long this should take; is there a problem; and is there an alternative to updating the game this way.

Well, do not update automatically. Just use this manual update. Download it, double click it, you will have the latest version of the game. then no matter whan expansion or stuff pack you wanan install, it won't ask for update. Therefore, you will have no troubles, as long as you follow these steps as well. Good luck and happy Simming!!!

Updating when prompt uses the patches that you downloaded within the expansion you downloaded. It's located in the Support/Updates of the extracted expansion folder.

Normally best to try to install the newest expansion first, just to make sure it does get updated all the way you need it, so don't need to mess around with updating each time you try to install a new expansion.

Sorry for the late-er reply. :/

I guess I'll just be buying the game. I already tried manually updating and the same thing happened. Also, I have been installing the latest expansion. Thanks for the help, though.

Hello,

Unfortunately, a store bought game isn't going to be any different from a pirated one at all.
The manual patch should work, if it doesn't, that suggests a problem with your base game installation.

I did indeed buy the game, and got it working. It actually was a problem with my Virus Protection software -- I guess I should have tried that, but I have NEVER had a problem with it before. It's not a total waste of money, because I do get some extra stuff for buying. But the reason I posted back was to tell you that after I installed the base game, I installed your Seasons crack and it works great!
