Question about the instalation of the Sims 3 + expansions

Post by SuperLiesje on Thu 07 Apr 2011, 12:13

I've searched around on this Forum but 1 thing is still unclear to me.

I understand that in order to get the game work correctly i have to install the base games and all expansions (i want to play them all) without aplying the cracks. Does that mean that i only use the setup.exe file of each game and than at the end use the fix?

//EDIT

anyone? I really want to install today Smile


Admin edit: No bumping please. I check all posts daily, just be patient.

Hello,

Yes, that's correct. Just install everything (I recommend you install Outdoor Living Stuff béfore WA) and skip áll the "# Crack folders".
When you're done installing everything, without applying their cracks, just apply this fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-latest-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

The game should work fine now!

If you have any more problems, please post them here, so I can guide you.

I still have some problems indeed.. The game is very slow although my computer easily passes the system requirements. I've tested this on the 'can you run this' site. Furthermore there's no text with some of the stuff/personality features that come from one of the expansions. I'm not sure but i suspect they come from the sims 3 ambitions..

I used only downloads that you provided and installed as you said, after that i applied the fix.. Hope you can help me!

Hello,

Try running on low(er/est) settings, restart the game and see if it makes any difference.
Do you mean not showing balloons/text? If yes, please try this: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t859-the-sims-3-text-balloons-not-showing-missing-fix

* You can find it just by options, on top of that you cann switch the option menu to game setting - bla bla bla - bla bla bla
try them out, there's 1 option menu where you can change the shadow, soft sides, et cetera, just put them all to the lowest thing and than (it is really) fast (the game) This fault I also had with Medieval, I changed all things to the baddest settings, you almost don't see any difference in graphics but the games runs fluently,

Hello,

That error can be fixed by applying this fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-latest-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

When you're in the options, try turning off an option called something like "Reflection". That one usually causes a lot of problems.
