Ambitions installation issues. [SOLVED]

Post by dudejca on Sun 10 Apr 2011, 08:58

Hiya! Very Happy so I have downloaded the Ambitions EP to add with my existing Sims 3. It took me all day to download the torrent and extract the rar and after I got to the files I obviously went to the installation guide and follow it step by step.

I wasn't sure if I followed step one right, but it asked to download the G4TW version of Sims 3 and expansions/packs. Do I need to still download the G4TW version of Sims 3 if I have the cd version I bought from the store? And it asked to download in a specific order: (Be sure you Install in this order: The Sims 3, World Adventures, High End Loft Stuff, Ambitions) I accidentally downloaded Ambitions first since I had no idea it would be necessary to download in order. Would this effect the files should I uninstall it and go back to it later?

So I was a bit confused with the first step so I went forward to the next steps and installing Ambitions went by smoothly. I saw the desktop icon of Ambitions so I clicked on it and got directed to the Ambitions launcher. When I clicked play it kept saying I need a disk and would keep saying that when I clicked retry. When I clicked cancel it said process could not be started. Question It also did that on The Sims 3 launcher. (note again this is the store-bought Sims 3, I only downloaded Ambitions)

Nothing worked yet so I followed step five onwards where I had open the crack folders and drag/replace files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin So I followed the directions by dragging the cracks from the two folders. What happened is TS3.exe got replaced, TSLHost.dll got replaced twice, and TS3EP02 never got replaced since I never had it on that folder.

Things got worse. When I opened The Sims 3 Game Launcher it said there was an error during startup, please see the log for more details. Then the launcher quit itself. Then The Sims 3 Ambitions Launcher said the same thing earlier (I need a disk, process could not be started). I'm confused I could be wrong but don't the expansion packs share on one game launcher, The Sims 3 Game Launcher? I don't know why I have two: one that works and one that doesn't work.

Help anyone? I still want to download other expansion and stuff packs, but I want to download these fast and easier, but it looks like I made my Sims 3 worse.

Hello there,

Haha, sounds like you pretty messed up. No problem, we'll fix it.

There's no problem in using a retail / legal version of one of the games, so no, there's no need to really have the ®️ Games4theworld version(s).
Also, the specific order doesn't apply any more. But I'll tell you what to do in a second.

When copying the crack, you copied the cracks from both "# Crack" folder (in the .rar file you downloaded) to óne folder. That is wrong. If you read the "# Installation Guide.txt" very carefully, it says you have to copy each folder to a different folder.

Anyhow, in order to fix your problem, please do the following:

1. Install our Outdoor Living Stuff expansion.
2. Install our Late Night expansion.
3. Install all other expansions you like.
4. Apply this fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-latest-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems (Read the included "# Installation Guide.pdf" very carefully!

See if it works after doing the above. Good luck! Wink

Ahh ok... I misread the cracks then. Do I have to reapply the cracks now then install in that order?
