should i install EA download manager? [SOLVED]

Post by amethvst on Sat 05 Jan 2013, 17:50

Hello!

I'm following this guide: ''how to install the sims 3 correctly''. i don't want to make any mistake so i was wondering if i need to install EA download manager. and the game update.

second question: i just want to install one expansion for now (showtime). will i be able to install other expansions after i install patchs and the ultimate fix?

Thank you in advance!

Hello,

You don't have to install the download manager (or Origin), it really doesn't make a difference.
The manual patch as suggested in this post is highly recommended.
It's no problem to install additional expansions later, after installation, it's probably a good idea to do the patch and the crack again, but other than that there are no special considerations.

Hello,

Yes, or apply the patch now so you don't run the risk of an error occurring when the launcher is patching the base.

Hello,

Try to redownload the patch but take care not to interrupt the download as it's coming in, and try it with a different browser.
