Multiple issues. Partially solved.

Post by Thursday on Sun 06 Jan 2013, 03:48

I'm having multiple issues. I installed (from this source) Ambitions, Pets, Showtime, Late Night, and Seasons. Seasons runs fine, as it's pretty recent.

However, Amb/Pets/Show when installed said that my game was too recent and may work incorrectly. I ignored that.

Late Night, whenever I open the Late Night Launcher (which doesn't redirect to the Seasons/overall launcher) it says there is an update. When I try to update, it verifies some files but then says "some files have been modified! please reinstall!"

Now, when I play (especially with Showtime I just installed), the game often flickers into negative colors when I try doing something that is exclusive to certain expansions. Or it freezes, requiring a full force shutdown on my Macbook Pro. I suppose they need updating? But when I click on the other non late night launchers, they just redirect to the Seasons overall launcher, leaving me unable to update (possibly showing that they don't need updating?). And that launcher says my game is up to date.

I did everything to a T in regards to the ultimate fix and installation.

I guess I just need help updating the expansions.

I installed Ambitions/Pets/Showtime AFTER updating to 1.42, so perhaps I need to "re-update" to 1.42 so it can umbrella over everything else?

UPDATE: Manually patched, runs smoother and doesn't change to negative colors anymore after about 30 mins of gameplay, however the Late Night verifying error still occurs during that update.

//EDIT

Additionally, yes, I have the latest version of Ultimate Fix. For now,
I'm going to go back and re-do the ultimate fix for the expansions I
have, although I don't know if that will affect anything. I'm going to
write down the client numbers for each expansion and let everyone know
what happens and if they change (I forgot to look when I redid it for
Late Night).

As for Late Night, even after re Ultimate fixing,
the update that ends with "some files have been modified" still occurs,
stopping halfway through.

//EDIT

Client Build numbers:

Pets:

ClientBuild
10.0.96.013001
(should be unknown)
Generations
ClientBuild
8.0.152.011001
(should be current)
Ambitions
ClientBuild
4.9.5.010031
4.10.1

Showtime
ClientBuild
12.0.273.015001
(should be unknown)
Late Night
ClientBuild
6.0.81.009001

SHOULD BE 6.5.1

These
are the Patch 22 numbers, and we are on patch FORTY TWO. So these are
severely outdated and basically I need to update and am currently trying
manually to see if it fixes the problem. I did not update after each
install as it said that it was completely updated since I was on 1.42,
but it may not have rolled over onto the expansions.
I know for sure Late Night isn't the newest client build.

Ah yes, you posted this just as I realized this may be the root of the problem.

Thank you, I am trying this right now.

UPDATE: Manually patched, now disk authentification error comes up. Will use the bypass trick to see what happens.

Reapply the crack to bypass the disk authentication error.
(This often happens after using the "official" superpatcher.)
