Sims 3 - Can't run the game after patching (1.42 from 1.26)

Post by kazpike on Mon 10 Dec 2012, 10:48

So I downloaded the game via this torrent ( search in kat.ph Sims 3. this should come first (The Sims 3: Deluxe Edition v.4.1.1. + Store (2011) PC | Lossless Repack )

It's default game version is 1.26. I tried almost all the fix in the site... but whenever it's done updating ( whether via launcher , or manual patch provided by games4theworld ) it says when I open the launcher "There was an error during startup. Please see the Log for more details." and when I open the game ( not the launcher this time ) it says :

"Unable to start game

Service initialization failed (0x024e424f) "

Please guys! help me! I really want to play the updated game! Help !Sad(

Hey guys, I tried this fix

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t8929-registry-helper

I can now run the launcher with no problem! but the only problem is that when I checked the Sims 3 Patch its not in 1.42 it says its still on 1.26 Sad(

BUT!

I run the updater (1.42) and it says it has detected that sims 3 is already on patch 1.42 do you want to install the patch anyway? what does this mean? how can I fully check that my sims 3 is updated? please reply Smile)

Hello,

Check the base game icon on the launcher, it's in the lower left corner.
Keep in mind that you may be unable to add new packs to this game. It's a modified installer and those seem like a good idea, until you want to patch them or install additional packs.

Hey thanks for the reply !

I checked and it says 1.26.89.013002 but the updater says its already on 1.42... any ideas?

And what do you mean by I cant add anymore packs to the game? you mean I cant add seasons, supernatural etc..?? Ermahgerd is there a way? Sad

Hello,

I'm not sure. I guess it depends on how it has been modified. It would seem like the patch won't install either. Though you may want to try to ignore the patch's message that you're already patch 1.42 and try to install it again.

But I don't know, we usually advise people with these type of downloads to uninstall them and download everything separately. It's a bit more work hen you're installing them, but you'll be happier with them in the long run.
