Please Insert Showtime Disk error. [SOLVED]

Post by KaraFrog on Thu 13 Dec 2012, 06:05

Well, I downloaded the ultimate fix after having a lot of errors and it fixed most of them, I can't run the game from ts3w.exe as it crashes instantly. From the launcher I get "Unable to connect to origins" or "The process could not be started." Along with asking me to insert the showtimes disc. [which crashes the launcher when I do]

I have every expansion except for diesel stuff and only 4 mods. Female replacements and the no CD crack, removing them doesn't seem to do anything. Any help would be wonderful. Very Happy

Hello,

Do you mean the nocd mod package? You'll have to remove it since it conflicts with the crack in the fix.
Please redo steps 2-4 on this page.

I have removed the conflicting mod, patched again [though it said it was not needed] and re-installed the ultimate fix. Going to attempt running it again.

It still failed =[ In the same way as before. TS3W.exe crashed instantly and Launcher asked for showtime disc.

Is there anything I can do to help show the problems I'm experiencing to make it easier on you?

Hello,

Could you post a detailed screenshot of the folder you copied the crack to? We'd like to see the "date modified" on the crack files.

I also got you a screen of the EA folder in documents to see if that would help anything.

You'll have to remove the spaces since it won't let me link and it's too big to post as an image. >_<

Hello,

That's not the correct crack, I'm afraid. Please re-do step 3 and 4, read very carefully and RE-DOWNLOAD the latest version of the Ultimate Fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Good luck!

Hello,

You don't have to use the patch, you're already at that patch level. Just redownload the fix and apply it's crack.

When applying just the crack I got a different error and was able to figure that one out Very Happy Turns out there was a leftover diesel key in the registry that was causing other persistent error. Thanks for all your help guys! You are the greatest!
