Game won't let me update... [SOLVED]

Post by scarletrose on Thu 10 Jan 2013, 11:00

This is actually the first time I've ever had this error. I press the update (from ver 42 to 47) it downloads like normal, everything works fine until the last part where the sims 3 type screen pops up, and it says "Invalid file" (or something alone those lines) and exits... I've tried getting the manual patch - but for some reason, it's not downloading, at all?
I don't know what else to do lol...

Hello,

Good, because you really shouldn't update until there's a new crack Very Happy
We will have the new fix and the manual patch ready soon, so stay tuned and don't update!

Wait... my bad. It looks like the fix has already been updated. You can grab the manual patch here and the fix here.

Hello,

It is, I edited my post.
I've been away from the pc for 2 days and hadn't noticed that the fix had been updated. Try the manual patch, it'll work.

Hello,

You're quite right, I just started it myself and nothing is happening. Seemingly, it seems.
Are you using Google Chrome by any chance? When I click the "show all downloads" button in the lower right corner I can see on the "downloads" page that it's downloading, but very slowly. I'm not sure how you could find this out with other browsers.

Hello,

It'll take a while then. See if it helps to close your torrent client. It did for me.

I just wanted to confirm that the update through the actual game launcher failed for me as well and I'm currently downloading the manual patch from the link above. The manual patch is downloading fine (5 mins to go), so I hope that helps? perhaps the download was just having an issue?!

thanks, I got it working, just took awhile to download but everything went well from there (:

Actually instead of opening a new post, I'm just going to ask here, what gets fixed in the Ultimate fix?
Because I was looking at my mods folder and noticed a bunch of 'older' fixes

Is it safe to remove any of these? (because they are included in the ultimate fix)

The ultimate fix doesn't have anything to do with your documents EA folder and files (as seen in your screen shot)... those files you just showed would be in your mods folder and that requires the STORE FIX files. The ultimate fix is for overwriting the actual game files in C: program files etc. Does that make sense?

It makes sense, thanks, just wanted to check to make sure I didn't have multiple things for the same issue (:

Hello,

You do have multiples in there. Lets see.. the treefruitfix and spellbookfix packages are obsolete with store fixes 1, 2 and 3. And the Joey_StoreCC_fix fixes the exact same thing as store fixes 1, 2 and 3.
Note that the store fixes have been updated just a few days ago.

Um you may have the dumb problem I had with the first patch. For some reason i kept getting an error with the patch. I had no idea where i needed to put it or if it was just an application. Apperntly, you need to make sure the download was fully made. the app sign will still appear even though the download was incomplete. try re-downloading the fix and making sure it's fully DL. It was a stupid thing i did thinking the 1.47 patch was screwed up but the 1.48 fully downloaded ran great. Thanks G4TW.
