Expansion problem.

Post by Tinnie123 on Tue 22 Jan 2013, 00:03

I download most of the sims3 game from the official download website of this forum excluding 2 or 3 expansion, my the main game I wanted to try is super natural.
After following all of the installing guide, the ultimate fix, and the manual patches all of the installing went well without problem. However as soon as I launch super natural it turned into season, I tried launching late night fast lane and other expansion i have available and they all turned into season.
Please hep!

They aren't separate games - they're expansions to a game. It doesn't matter which one you want to run, running any of them will run ALL of them.

It is supposed to be like that though. The game loads up the most recently released game's screen, unless you tell it not to. If you'd like to change the screen you see, there are mods, like this, that let you decide which screen you see on loading.

Ah, I see. Someone I met gavey me the wrong information, thankyou for replying =]

//EDIT

However, what stump me the most is that when creating a sims and choosing what class or supernatural there is no genie and when i put my cursor on the selection, it said I need to play the actual expansion to to be able to pick this class.

This stumps me. There is no genie, and you can mouse over it?

Hello,

The genie is only available if you have Late Night Showtime installed. If you do have that expansion, there may be something wrong with the install. Does its icon light up on the launcher?

Hello,

The icon(s) don't/doesn't show up on the launcher, but the game(s) is/are installed?

It's from Showtime, not Late Night.

Hello,

But that's the loadingscreen, as mentioned in your first post. It means nothing, just tells me what your newest expansion is. What I'm interested in, is your launcher. There are icons at the bottom for each expansion and stuffpack and they are either dull, or lit up. Did you install Showtime and if you did, is it's icon lit up in the launcher?
