World Adventures - Invalid File? [SOLVED]

Post by C-Squared on Fri 08 Apr 2011, 19:49

Hello. I've installed the base game (which works fine) as instructed in that torrent. However, this happens when I follow the steps for WA.

- Changed the SKU value to 2 in the registry editor.
- Applied the patch in the Crack 1 folder, corrected the directory as well.
- Replaced the files and folders with those from Crack 2.

- Running the first file in the Crack 3 folder. (Sims3_1.2.7.00002_from_1.0.631.00002)
When I try to run that file, I get this error message:


(Nice job translating the buttons in MS Paint, right?)

I've tried rebooting my computer, as well as re-installing the base game, but none of those worked.
On a side note, do you have to install the expansions in the same order they were released? I'm downloading the three last expansions right now, and got the others ready. It'd be awesome if I could install the other ones meanwhile.

Cheers.

Hello there,

Haha, yeah, good translation/editing.

For your problem, please do the following:

1. Skip WA and install our Outdoor Living Stuff expansion, but DO NOT APPLY any cracks yet! (Just skip the "# Crack" folder)
2. Install WA, but DO NOT APPLY any cracks yet! (Just skip the "# Crack" folder)
3. Install Late Night, but DO NOT APPLY any cracks yet! (Just skip the "# Crack" folder)
4. Install any other expansions you like, but DO NOT APPLY any cracks yet! (Just skip the "# Crack" folder)
5. Apply this fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-latest-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems
6. Your game should work fine now!

Thanks a lot, I'll try it out as soon as the two remaining expansions are done downloading.

Should I keep the base game "clean" before installing the expansions as well, or do I still need to patch it? I suppose that I shouldn't patch it and just use the fix you linked, I just want to make sure, though.

Cheers.

Hello,

There's no problem with patching / updating if necessary, as long as you DO NOT apply the cracks. But when you apply the fix when done, you'll automatically have the latest version of the game.
