Hi there I'm really in need of help,

Basically I already had the sims 3 downloaded from origin and a few stuff and expansion packs (they were originally physical copies I put onto origin with their serial codes if that makes any difference) on my laptop but I decided to torrent a few more packs for my game. I have managed to do this before on my old PC but the games were from their disks and not origin downloads.

I spent an hour allowing the manual patch to download for it to not work when I open it up to apply it, it just says there is no version of the sims 3 installed on my laptop, maybe because it is through Origin. 

I ignored this assuming it would be fine and downloaded 3 expansion packs and 2 stuff packs which all downloaded fine, I followed all the steps exactly as told and put the crack in the Origin Games file as my base game is downloaded from there but the game just does not work. It either straight up refuses to load from the origin launcher or just has a black screen then crashes from the Game>Bin launcher of the origin base game, I also tried the Island Paradise Game>Bin launcher too it does the same thing. I did notice the 5 ep/sps I downloaded are all downloaded onto my actual PC and not the Origin Games file which possibly could be causing the issue too.

Can anyone help? I don't know how to install the manual patch to my origin base game I presume thats why but I don't really know how to.

Many thanks

Hello and welcome to the Forum @ddbb208,

Can you confirm that the patch version of your Sims 3/Origin base game is 1.69? If indeed you can confirm that, it means (probably) that you cannot use any of the pirated DLC. Regardless whether from G4TW or elsewhere.

Your best shot in such a case would be to grab a DRM-free (=cracked) complete collection of the game, for example this one here:

By the way, while there is a DRM-free version for the 1.69 patch too, for example on ZLOrigin, I do not recommend using it. One reason is that this version is more hardware-hungry than the 1.67 version. Another reason is a lack of mod support.
