SOS I haven't been able to play in months update my legacy challenge or do imports! I've tried going through all my corrupt conflicts and duplicate files and I've reinstalled all my game and packages and it says the base game is not installed and that its not installed properly, also when I open origin and launch it I'll click it and it looks like its doing something then it just returns to normal. If it does manage to get to the actual sims 3 launcher I'll click the play symbol it will act as if it was about to start launching and the launcher disappears as it would normally when the loading screen would arrive but it just dissapears without a loading screen and does nothing just leaves me hanging... Please help as I really love playing sims and making import and most of all doing the legacy challenge. No idea is a bad idea!
Do you try to start Sims with the .exe file, not with launcher? I never had this problem myself, but I read about people with a defect launcher, who start Sims with the .exe
No I've never heard of it, do you know any pages that explain it step by step? Thanks so much
I tried but it didn't work thanks so much for the help though!
Sorry, my laptop crashed and I can't look for the file myself. Hm, you tried to deinstall the hole game? You can save your Sims 3 folder first to start from the last save, not from beginning.
I've already deleted and installed everything, I've just taken out all my mods folder and this notice came up its different than usual so I'm taking it as a step closer.Any ideas on this?
I'll try to find a solution, but can't promise anything.
Thank you, I know!
have you updates sims recently? and do you install from disk or origin
Still searching, I asked Sims player with experience, but until now nobody knows a solution.
mostly from origin and I'm not sure actually I thought they stopped updating it since sims 4 came out.
thank you so much ill be having a mess around with it today
firstly. i need to know what pc system your on, Secondly, try repairing the game through origin. then we can talk about the .ddl file
I'm running windows 8 and how would I do that?
on origin, go in your game library, im not sure if its in right click or a left click option. there should be an option to repair the game
Yeah I did that last night it completed but still when I click play in the sims 3 launcher its just takes me to origin sims 3 where I can click play and then that goes to the sims 3 launcher and it doesn't actually load the game just the two launchers
ok then you need to find the .ddl file for your pc, are you on windows? 64 or 32 bit
Somehow I've managed to get it to work but the only problem now it doesn't think I've got any expansion packs installed.
you can tick them in the sims 3 launcher
Wasn't that simple but I've got thar working too is there anything I could do to thank you?
