My sims 3 basegame is updated to the latest do I need to update the expensions? [SOLVED]

Post by whatWhat! on Fri 04 Jan 2013, 04:20

Hi, I'm new here so I'm not sure if I am posting this in the right place..
I just downloaded all the sims from here, and also did a superpatch for my base game before installing the expensions, do i still need to manually update the expensions?

my basegame version is now 1.42


Thanks in advance

Depends on the expansion installed - safest bet is to just do it.

It depends on what you're installing. Best bet is to just run it again, then copy the "# Crack" from the ultimate fix back over

Hello,

Did you download it from G4TW? There are instructions on changing the SKU in your registry, to avoid this error, in the installation guide.
