"Unofficial modifications" error and then crashes - HELP PLEASE!

Post by PNextSims on Fri 11 Jan 2013, 20:00

Hi,
I've just download The Sims 3 and some expansions (Seasons, Pets, Generations and City Life Stuff). I followed all of your guides and when i start the game this message appears:


"It looks like you have installed an unofficial game modification that does not match your current version of The Sims 3. We recommend that you either uninstall these game modifications or get updated versions of them - otherwise you may experience crashes or significant bugs."


I ignore it and the game starts. I'm able to create my sims and then as soon as i chose the house to start playing it crashes. Can you help me?
I've been trying everything and searching every where for the last 2 days.....
(Thanks a lot and sorry for the bad english.)

I've tried it. At first it seems to work, if a chose one existing family. But if i create my own family with a pet, as soon as i chose the house or land it crashes...
I'm going crazy with this game... But thanks for your fast response.


Do you think there is anything else i can try?

You can try patching the pre-Generations expansions, I always forget to do it and when I finally remember it always fixes a problem or two.

You need to install every single patch for these:

-Base game, just in case you haven't.
-World Adventures http://www.beyondsims.com/the-sims/the-sims-3/the-sims-3-patches/patches-the-sims-3-world-adventures/
-Ambitions http://www.beyondsims.com/the-sims/the-sims-3/the-sims-3-patches/the-sims-3-ambitions/
-Late Night http://www.beyondsims.com/the-sims/the-sims-3/the-sims-3-patches/the-sims-3-late-night/

The "Unofficial game mod" error is related to Ambitions I think, though I can't tell you how to fix it because I've been having it too after 1.47, usually a patch brings it back and another fixes it again.

Anyway patching the pre-Generations expansions might fix the crashes, since I doubt the crashes and the error are related.

Hello,

Using the latest, working crack usually does the trick. Outdated cracks can cause that error.
If it's not the crack, then it's a Mod or Custom Content.

So a question usually asked that hasn't been yet, what is your base game version? (This can be found by hovering your mouse over the base game icon in the bottom left of your launcher) And are you using the Ultimate fix, or a crack included with the game?

Hi

I've tried patching as TUN3R said, but didn't work as well.

About the version, i updated it using the manual patch, so now the version is 1.47. I followed every step that appears here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
and used the Ultimate Fix.

I can't understand why it crashes... i think i'll give up trying to play this game and maybe try another time..
Thank you guys for all the help. This forum is great, congrats!
