Can't install store content from mediafire

Post by Julesrules on Wed 28 Nov 2012, 14:13

Hi guys,

first of all thank you to everybody of G4TW so much for making these games available. I have been using this site for a few years and I never even had to make an account because everything works so well and I never had a problem. That is until now.
When I try to install store content that I downloaded from the G4TW mediafire account I get an error that I have to update my game, but it is up to date. It's also weird that the thumbnail that i see in my donwload folder is the purple logo of late night, even though i have all the other expansions packs since late night installed as well.
I have tried choosing the "don't update" option and then it doesn't work, it says 'an unknown error occured' and closes down. when I choose the 'update' option the same thing happens.
I think this is so weird because it used to work just fine for me in the past?!

I hope someone has the solution to the problem, the store content makes the game much more interesting I think!


Thanks in advance.

Have you tried to use the manual patch to update the game?

Was it the G4TW patch or the Super Patch from the officials Sims site?

Antiskub, the manual patch and the Super patcher are the same thing. Razz

Well, I have solved it! Because the icon for the downloaded content was always the purple logo of late night i decided to uninstall the late night expansion. I think I probably had a corrupt version or something.
Still, thanks a lot for your help!

Super Patch can give verification issues if you use pirated games.

Also, just as a personal anecdote, I found the official Super Patcher doing a better job (in terms of performance issues) than the manual patch from here. I don't know why, or if it's only for Macs, but using it to patch my game and re-cracking afterward has added hours of game time. Shocked But hey, I just work the counter, not make the pizza~
