Hello,

You can always update via the launcher, but you'll have to follow all included instructions that come with the Ultimate Fix in order to do so: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

i have tried this already and when i do i get update error: invalid file found and in the ultimate fix it says if you get this error download the manual patch which brings me back to my problem of i cant download the patch it starts to download gets to 99% and then freezes there for hours and will not continue or it will just get to 99% and error out

I've tried to download it on multiple browsers to make sure it wasn't the browser I've downloaded the ultimate fix again to make sure i can download which worked fine its just the patch that wont download

so i don't know what to do

Could you try downloading the patch on a different computer, and using a usb drive to transfer it to the computer with sims on it?

LOL, what?

That error usually occurs if you didn't copy all the files from the Ultimate Fix to the correct folder in your installation directory.
Anyway, you can contact me via the Forum's Chatbox when you see me online on the Forum and we can try to sort this out for you via TeamViewer, if you like.

Another option is, if you feel like it:

1. (Backup your savegames and then) completely remove The Sims 3 and all expansion packs, using Your Uninstaller! Pro from www.games4theworld.org . Use the "Super Mode" for uninstallation.
2. Restart your PC.
3. Reinstall everything, but DO NOT use ANY of the "# Crack" folders(!).
4. When done, update the game via the launcher. That should go all fine, since you haven't used any modified files. (Read: cracked files)
5. After it finished patching your game, double-check to see if you're really updated to the latest version, currently 1.47.
6. If correct, do step 3 and 4: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
7. Start the game and it should work like a charm now.

Good luck and please let us know the result or if you need any assistance during the process!
