No CD problem

Post by creamedsunshine on Wed 09 Jan 2013, 00:53

I have been playing Late Night, Ambitions, and Generations fine for a long time, but I decided I wanted the town Monte Vista, so I went through the process of getting that, but it required updating my base game to 1.42, which caused my old no-CD crack not to work anymore. I trashed it and applied the ultimate fix (along with the other instructions on this website).
I can launch and load the game fine, but when I get to the main menu I get the message along the lines of "We aren't able to verify that you have a valid Sims 3 Generations disk". I've gone through the process of the ultimate fix several times, double checking everything I could think of, and the message hasn't changed.
I'd like to know what I'm doing wrong. Thanks.

Hello,

You probably missed the #crack folder in the fix.
Note that there is a new patch out as of last Tuesday, so it would be wise to install the new (manual) patch and get the new fix.

If I'm correct in my placement of the files in the Base game /Game/Bin/ directory, it must be something else, because I've double checked this and I still get the error message.

Hello,

Please show us a detailed screenshot (showing the contents of the folder with their file type and date modified showing) of the folder you copied the crack to.

Hello,

That's not right, the date should be 1/9/2013. This is the original .exe that was modified by the patch.
Something must have gone wrong when you copied the crack. Did you get a note about replacing the files already in there?

The date is the 8th because I transferred the files on the eighth. And yes, I got a replacement notification.

Hello,

Lol, how can you transfer the file on the 8th, if the latest crack was created on the 9th?
Please re-do step 3 and 4: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
So re-download the latest version of the Ultimate Fix, please.

Good luck!

I updated my game just before the last update came out. Is it absolutely necessary to have the latest game update? The crack I have matches up with that version.

//EDIT

Or is the latest game version required for the latest crack? I'd prefer
not to go through the tedious process of updating my game yet again.

Your game version does have to match up with the version of the fix that you're using. So you will have to update in order to use the most recent version.

In that case, isn't there something I can do with the previous update and crack? As I said, i would strongly prefer not to try to update my game again.

Hello there,

What's the problem with updating anyway?
You only have to download the manual patch, apply it and then copy of the crack (only); done.
Step 2 to 4 describe how to do so: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Since you insist, I went through the whole process yet again with the new patch. This hasn't fixed anything yet.

//EDIT

The same issue still stands

Hello,

So you used the manual patch from the topic I linked to? (RE-DOWNLOADED, I hope?)

If yes, you should have got the latest version of the game now.
What did you do after that? If correct, you should have re-downloaded the Ultimate Fix and only applied the .exe and the .dll file from the "# Crack" folder (and ignored the other folders in the Fix).
And you still get the "Insert game disc" error now?
If yes, can you please post another screenshot of the folder where you copied that .exe and .dll file to? Preferably a screenshot of the folder in "Details" view mode.

Hello,

Please remove the "rld-sim3.exe" file in that folder and then RE-DO step 2 to 4: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly (The instructions were updated earlier today)
Please re-download both the manual patch and the Ultimate Fix.

Let us know the result, good luck!

Deleted the file, installed the patch and the new crack, and transferred the files. No change.

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply!
That's the correct folder, but still not the correct crack files.
Please re-download the Ultimate Fix using WinRAR and then open the "# Crack" file in there. (NO OTHER FOLDER!)
In this "# Crack" folder, you'll see a .exe and .dll file, correct? Select both files in WinRAR and then drag & drop them to the folder from your screenshot. A pop-up should appear, telling you the files already exist. Choose "Copy and replace".

After that test the game and/or send a new screenshot.

That's what I've done.
Could replacing the expansion files the first time I tried the crack all that while back after watching the instructional video be causing this?

You're not, by any chance, using a noCD mod are you?
