Hello and sorry for the late reply @Aunikyu88,

While we always try our best, please note that we are 'traditionally' always short on volunteers helping out. Even half-decent volunteers are nearly impossible to find. But that's too much rambling from me I guess.

I found this here which I wrote many years ago:
https://www.games4theworld.club/t19018-un-installing-the-sims-3-a-reference-guide

Try removing files and registry entries manually, according to the guide that I linked. Then re-boot your computer (!!!) and try re-installing the base game of The Sims 3. Note that Steam versions of The Sims 3 will not be "recognized" once you try install other DLC, for example from G4TW. Not sure if you had a Steam game in the first place, but just adding the information here, in case maybe someone else has a similar problem.

Good luck! Carlos is tha man

Have you tried applying the 1.67 manual super-patch too, after installing the base game?

So at this point I'm almost out of suggestions, but I have some other thoughts:


- do you still have the torrent for The Sims 3 base game as "seeding" in your torrent client? If yes, look for an option that says "Force Re-Check", and use the option.
- if it still doesn't work, try re-downloading the base game with a different torrent client than the one you used initially. Recommended clients in 2019 are Tixati, qBittorrent, Transmission, etc.

I'll also tag Admin ~Ann~, maybe she knows more here, but that's all I can do for now.

Just keep posting in this thread here. Smile   As said, I'll try and drop ~Ann~ a message, and she'll then try and get back to you here. Maybe there is something else that I don't know of.

Sorry I couldn't help further here. WhatDidUJustCallMe?

Hello,

If you're planning on installing all of the expansionpacks, I'd suggest trying the "The Sims 3 Complete Collection" (all-in-one installer) found in this post.

Unfortunately it won't help you if you only want to play a few expansions. If that's the case, you may need to search your computer for any reference to "The Sims 3" and delete everything you find (except the files you've downloaded,of course). You can also use a registry cleaner after uninstalling, to make sure there are absolutely no registry entries left for the game. The free version/trial of Ccleaner will do the trick.
