Sims 3 expansions not detecting (last four!)

Post by pickedaduckforchristmas on Sun 23 Dec 2012, 14:02

I have the Sims 3 via origin anyway, and decided to download all of the expansions.

up until the last 4 they are detected and work fine - I copied all the patches to the right places (I believe so, anyway, following the Ultimate Fix's guide word for word!), but the last four on the Sims Launcher are not detected and are grayed out. Everything else works fine.

What could the problem be?

Thanks.

What versions are showing when you mouse over the greyed ones?

Hello there,

Patches from the Fix?
You're doing something wrong here.

Please re-do step 2 to 4: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
After doing step 2, the icons should light up on your launcher again. DO NOT skip any steps and re-download the manual patch and the Ultimate Fix.

Also note that in step 4, you should copy the crack to this folder instead: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin instead, since your base game is an Origin version.
