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?

Hello,

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

I believe I did try a few before coming here. But any replaced files would by now be replaced by the fix files

Hello,

A noCD mod would go in the mods\packages folder, anything like that?

Oh. No, not anything like that. Just other fixes I'd tried before that replaced the same files.

Hello,

If that is what you did, then you still didn't do it correct, because the "Modified" dates are not correct.
Did you actually re-download the Ultimate Fix and tried my instructions again?
If yes, can you please post a new screenshot of the folder where you copied the crack files to?

You're right, the date is wrong... it looks like, for some reason, no matter what I do, the date on the .dll won't change. The file copied from the #Crack folder says January 25, but when it's pasted it still dates back to November. I've tried replacing AND deleting the old file before pasting.
Sorry to be such a bother. I have no idea what the problem is...

Hello,

I don't know why you're having this problem, this is correct actually. The crack's date modified is 11/28/2012. I doublechecked the crack in the fix, and my own game/bin. Both say November 28th 2012.
can you verify that your game version is, indeed, 1.48 by hovering your mouse over the base game icon in the lower left corner of the launcher?

Hello there,

You're bloody right, Lady ElDi.
My apologies, Creamedsunshine.
Please contact me via the Forum's Chatbox when you see me online on the Forum. I'll solve the problem for you via TeamViewer, if you like.

One more thing... as I mentioned, the first time I attempted the ultimate fix I watched the instructional video and replaced ALL the files. The ones besides in the #crack folder. You keep stressing not to, so could that be the reason?

Hello,

Are you 100% sure you re-downloaded and re-applied the manual patch from step 2: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly ?
If yes, that one overwrites all the files with their originals.

Just to be sure, try the manual patch again and then only apply the crack from the "# Crack" folder in the latest version of the Ultimate Fix. Good luck!

I am SO sorry for the late reply; I've been very ill.
I redownloaded and reapplied everything again. Still no change.

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply!
Everything was updated again yesterday: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
RE-DOWNLOAD both the manual patch and the Ultimate Fix.

Also, make sure you remove ANY NoCD Mods you may have added to the game.
