Decrapification and the (official) Sims 3 exchange

Post by The_gh0stm4n on Thu 13 Dec 2012, 20:28

One thing right away dear Admins: if this isn't the right section, feel free to move this topic.

So I've actually managed to download items from the official Sims 3 exchange (without registering of course Very Happy). I've
downloaded this decrapifier from here (the one with the instructions from Lady Eldi) and managed to decrapify a lot of items already. It's
just some of the items from this official exchange that can't be decrapified - I always get the error "Installation failed - Please update your game".

I know that's just a small issue and I wouldn't bother if there's no solution (since I got all of the official store items anyway)...
But just out of interest : could that be some kind of additional "security measure" by EA ? I mean, that if you download some items from there without registering then you get something "different" - that is, something that can't be used ?

I'm certainly not a computer whiz, but could that be a solution ?

Hello,

We're not sure what causes that problem but it is a known fact that some items from the exchange will get that error no matter what. It can help to install them using an alternative method.
I do have 1 registered game and still get the error.

OK, I guess I missed that method..
However, since I don't really need these user-made CC items, that's no big deal. I have lots of stuff already Smile

But thanks for the reply, Lady ElDi Very Happy

Plus, outside of houses and sims, most of the stuff on the exchange is just recolors of items. Smile
