Hello! I just installed everything from the Sims 3 anadius repack. The launcher loads okay but when I try to launch the game the screen goes black for long periods of time and when I close it the error code shows up. I am not sure what I'm doing wrong, any help greatly appreciated!

Hello,

Try deleting the folder "The Sims 3" under Documents\Electronic Arts, then try running the game again. Did you download and install any mods under the actual install location too, under C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 ? If so, remove these modified files again.

Thank you so much! I deleted the folder and it seems to be working now. Does this mean I can't download any cc?

You CAN use mods/CC, but you have to make sure they are compatible. Did you use any mods/CC already, that could have caused your original problem?

I would also be careful with mods where you have to replace files that are located in the installation folder of the game, so under C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3. Maybe stay away from those mods, but then again this is just an overgeneralization I guess.  Smile
