The sims 3 doesn't install completely

Post by innej on Tue 29 Jan 2013, 14:40

First of all I'm not a fluent English speaker so maybe I just misunderstood something..

I tried to install the sims 3 and some expansions like said in http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly but when I get to installing expansions, it says that I must install the sims 3 first.

I did the first step and didn't do anything to the ts3.exe in the #crack folder. Then I started installing seasons, but it says that I must install ts3 first. I decided to uninstall it and install it again but same thing happens. I did this couple of times, but nothing changes. Also it doesn't ask me to change the disk during installation. I also tried moving the ts3.exe, but it doesn't change anything.

I tried googleing and searching on this forum and also thinking this thru for couple of days, but I hope the solution is simple and I'm just stupid

Hello,

Please (re-?)install the base game as follows:

Open the .rar file you downloaded using only WinRar, which can be downloaded from www.games4theworld.org . (If you use any other software than WinRar, like WinZip or 7-zip, the files will get messed up!)
When you've opened the file using WinRar, select áll the files in it and drag & drop them to a folder on your Desktop. When the extraction is done, close the .rar file and open the folder on your Desktop. Now, start by reading the included "# Installation Guide.txt" and you should be able to get the game to work yourself. Good luck!

Thanks, I didn't realize that I must use winrar, I'll try it now Smile

//EDIT

I just realised that winrar doesn't work for mac, so what should I use?

//MOVED
Hello,

You're on a Mac?
Then I will move this topic to the right section.

I'm afraid I do not have any Mac knowledge. Just note that our base game does not work on Mac OS, but our expansion packs do.
More information: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t7248-how-to-install-sims-3-with-or-without-ep-s-on-mac-dmg-creating

Good luck!
