The sims 3 "no disc found" (GENERATIONS).[SOLVED]

Post by Nimegya on Fri 07 Dec 2012, 13:35

Let me start by saying i read the *MUST READ* about how to install the sims 3 correctly AND I think followed the steps correctly.

Ill explain step by step what i did, so maybe you notice something i did wrong.

I did not have anything, so no base game and no expansions.
I downloaded the following (all put on piratebay by games4theworld):
The sims 3 (base game)
Ambitions
Seasons
Town life stuff
Generations
Supernatural
World Adventures.

So i opend the MUST READ... page about how to install correctly and kept it open ALL DAY (while downloading).

I installed the base game, DID NOT INSTALL EA DOWNLOAD MANAGER (because the manual update would take care of that) and DID NOT USE ANY CRACK
Then I installed all the expansions (NOT IN ANY PARTICULAR ORDER , MAYBE THERE IS ONE??) and again i did not install EA DOWNLOAD manager or ORIGIN and DID NOT APPLY ANY CRACKS.

THEN i used the manual update, a notification came that i already had the recent version, but i updated anyway.

THEN i downloaded the latest FIX and opened the Installation guide. I followed the steps that where about the expansions i had installed, but SKIPPED STEP 11 (because the manual update had already taken care of that??)

Finally is used the crack in the #crack folder of the fix and applied it to the installation folder of the base game.

And started playing......and got this: NO DISC FOUND. PLEASE INSERT GAME DISC FOR GENERATIONS. :'(:'(:'(

Sad I WAS SO SAD, because i had been reading all these reactions of how it worked and was so confident...so pleaaase tell me what i did wrong. I am not going to try anything myself, because then i will only screw it up more.

And if you can't find anything i did wrong, please tell me how to start over without de-installing/re-installing because i was so confident it would work i allready deleted all the ISO's i downloaden.... yes i have been called naive before.

THanks for any responses.

Im not sure it would have affected it but within the installation guide within the ambitions .rar it says "(Be sure you Install in this order: The Sims 3, World Adventures, High End Loft Stuff, Ambitions)"... May have affected it? Not sure

Can you provide us with a detail screenshot of the base game bin folder, where you placed the crack in the last step of the Ultimate Fix.

It shouldn't matter the installation download order, haven't seem anyone have the problem of installing them in the wrong order.

Hello,

No, the order doesn't matter.
This is actually very easy to fix, there's not much you could've done wrong to cause this error.
Can you please post a screenshot of the folder you copied the crack to and one screenshot of the folder you "grabbed" the crack from?

Hi because i was impatient i did all the steps again hoping it would work, and it did! So problem solved. Still dont know what i did wrong, but at least the game works. If I want to install another expansion all i have to do is follow the fix guide again right? Thanks anywayz for replies. Topic can be closed. Xx

Hello,

Yes, after installing additional expansions, doing the fix again should suffice.
Don't hesitate to let us know if you need any help though.
Happy simming The Sims Plumbob 1 topic closed.
