Help! Manual update not working as well as launcher!

Post by Mobey115 on Mon 28 Jan 2013, 22:37

Hello,
I bought 2 Sims games my self and shared 2 other CD's with a friend. I recently downloaded your Sim 3 Pets. I followed the Installation guide and downloaded the manual update.... now what?
when I open the launcher it immediately closes. At first i though this was because I put in the crack before the manual update. so I deleted the file from the crack in my sims3/game/bin. I also don't know how the manual update works. I moved it to the sims3/game/bin but I don't know what to do next. Please help. This is starting to frustrate me and its starting not to be worth the work.
thanks,
mobey

Your need to run the Manual Update, just double click on it.

Alright well because i needed the Update to work. I read a few place you had to get rid of mod/CCs, I also read that uninstalling the game then re-installing it would get rid of the mods/CCs. It did this and tried to do the update again. I got an error message. SO then i tried the launcher again. It doesn't open at all any more. So then i tried to do the game without the launcher. It would work either. My guess is because i haven't put in the cracks yet, which your supposed to do AFTER the update.... I'm desperate. Noob

Well you don't have to get rid of the mods/cc before you update, but it's advised that you should, since it only takes a few moments to do, just go to Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 and move the Mods folder to the desktop, do a update, and before you move the Mods back, make sure you they will work with the update you do, you can check on their website.

If you didn't install Mods/CC, might as well backup the entire The Sims 3 folder there, so it thinks you just installed everything rather then having older settings and such.

To keep things more organized I attempted the best I could in putting them in one topic.

Hello,

The manual patch from step 2: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly , can be applied by just double-clicking it: it's an .exe file. Very Happy
