Showtime Install Error + Freezing

Post by bobcatbear on Thu 06 Dec 2012, 02:44

I've been trying to install Showtime for a few hours. I've patched, and applied the ultimate fix, but it still gives me the following message:


I really don't know what else to do. Every single other expansion and stuff pack installed just fine and are working.
Please help Sad

UPD: It also seems like my game freezes up after running for about 40 minutes. I've tried removing custom content, and applying ultimate fix, but it didn't help.

It looks like your extracted files are corrupted. Extract it only with WinRAR, and re-try, if it happens again, will have to preform a re-check on the torrent.

Side-Note: Why do you have so many CD Drives? Did you mount each of the expansions?

Does the file exist? Go into your Showtime\Caches\ directory and see if there's a file called "Starlight Shores.objectCache"

Are you installing from a CD (virtual or physical), or are you extracting the .iso and installing from the extracted location?

Hi,

Only the G4TW base game is an ISO, the expansions aren't Wink They're installed by running setup, after extracting with winRAR. The error this user is experiencing is usually caused by using winzip or 7zip instead.

Hi. I also am trying to install Showtime. I extracted the files with WinRAR but it says that the Starlight Shores file is corrupt. How do I fix this? Thanks a lot.
