DO NOT SKIP ANY STEPS AND READ EVERY STEP VERY CAREFULLY. DO EXACTLY AS WRITTEN BELOW, EVERY SINGLE STEP, BEFORE POSTING THAT IT DOESN'T WORK!

Hello everyone,

Seen the fact that a lot people are having problems with The Sims 3, while it works just fine, I decided to create this "guide" to show you how to install The Sims 3 correctly. If you do it this way, you'll automatically get the latest working version of the game. The steps aren't hard to understand, just READ CAREFULLY and DO NOT skip any steps!

So, these are the steps (AGAIN: do not do anything else, just do EXACTLY as written below).

(Extra note: if you are unable to 'reach' the download sites for the Ultimate fix and/or the manual patch, temporarily disable any browser adblockers; please refer to the disclaimer here for more information about the topic).



*********START***********Read each step carefully!***********START*********
Updated on: 6-12-2013

1. Download and install the The Sims 3 base game. (You may skip the "# Crack" folder. You DO NOT need to use the "# Crack"!)

2. After installing the base game, RE-DOWNLOAD and RE-APPLY this manual patch: https://www.games4theworld.club/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v1-67-fix-manual-patch (The Mac version of the manual patch can be downloaded HERE)

3. Install any expansion or stuff packs that you want. You can install as many as you want. (You may skip all the "# Crack" folders. You DO NOT need to use any "# Crack" folders!)

4. Finally we have to crack the game; RE-DOWNLOAD the latest version of our Ultimate Fix here: https://www.games4theworld.club/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

5. Open the "# Crack" folder in the Ultimate Fix and drag & drop the .exe and .dll file in there to exactly: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin   and choose "Copy and Replace" on the pop-up that appears, telling you the files already exist in that folder.
(If you downloaded and installed your base game via Origin, the crack goes into this folder instead: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin )

6. Start the game and... ENJOY playing!

*********END***********Read each step carefully!***********END*********




Extra note: all those folders in the Fix ARE NOT cracks, those are the original files needed to update the game, without getting the "Invalid File" error. The only crack files needed are the .dll and the .exe file in the "# Crack" folder.


Extra note 2: You'll need at least one of the following:

The Sims 3: Generations 
The Sims 3: Town Life Stuff
The Sims 3: Pets
The Sims 3: Master Suite
The Sims 3: Showtime
The Sims 3: Katy Perry's Sweet Treats Stuff
The Sims 3: Diesel Stuff
The Sims 3: Supernatural
The Sims 3: Seasons
The Sims 3: 70's, 80's & 90's Stuff
The Sims 3: University Life
The Sims 3: Island Paradise
The Sims 3: Movie Stuff
The Sims 3: Into the Future

Hi =3 :newfag: I just wanted to say: THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

I had installed The Sims 3 a few times before, but I had to reinstall my Windows and therefore the game with all its expansions. I thought it would work as it had worked before, but I don't know why, it didn't. I tried EVERYTHING I could possibly think of, but nothing worked. I was so desperate, until I found this forum. Your instructions helped me a lot, and I don't know if this means anything to you, but I am really, really grateful to you. Thanks once again! cheers cheers cheers

PS: And happy simming to everyone =3 The Sims 3 plumbob

OMG! This soooo totally works! To Admin.. I LOVE YOU!! Oh.. and THANK YOU!!

It all seemed so confusing at first(Prior to "The Fix") that I was afraid of doing it all wrong. As it was, I installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled some more before I figured it all out.

To anyone having issues, I STRONGLY recommend following the above VERY simple instructions TO THE LETTER! It really does work!

P.S. I registered today just so I can comment!

Administrators,
You guys are awesome! If you need any money to help with your operations, let me know after the end of this tax season (May 1st is best)! I would like to contribute something to you for your work and support, because you guys blow any other business and/or forum out of the water with your responsiveness and quality of service!
Also, for people that don't speak native-English, I would have never guessed if you wouldn't have said anything. AWESOME! You should run Customer Support for ALL corporations!
Kudos, you deserve it! Keep up the good work!

Thank you,
Mason Catalone

P.S: Just make sure you let me know!

Thank you guys heaps in advance for this, I had some version of ts3 that was all in one install on this computer before I got yours, and all it did was crash every 5minutes.

Looking forward to when I have your version running!

You're welcome to ask your question on the forum, but clean up your attitude first, we don't like it. This is fixable.

You guys are awesome! I've been playing The Sims 3 perfectly fine using your torrents and I took the time now to register and express how grateful I am at your hard work.

I downloaded the base game fine without the Ultimate Fix or the manual patch but after Pets and Seasons I definitely needed them. I'm currently in the process of re-installing everything so I can play University too ^^

Thanks again, guys!

I registered just to say thank you for this!
I have been a Sims player for years and have installed Sims 3 a good number of times (and in different computers; I have gotten a few people addicted to the game) but this time that I had to re-install it on my own computer it wasn't working correctly and not letting me play. So I found this thread and it was a life-saver! And I even got my base game updated to the latest version! So thank you so much. Very Happy
