Installation guide for The Sims 3 - Razor1911 Final MAXSPEED


GAME INSTALLATION GUIDE

Note: This guide is mainly for those who downloaded their pirated
"The Sims 3 - Razor1911 Final MAXSPEED
"
'
This guide also includes installation of
World Adventures Expansion and most Custom Content from EA.



IMPORTANT NOTES :
THIS GUIDE WILL ONLY WORK IF YOU FOLLOW CORRECTLY THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW.
IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO DOWNLOAD USING TORRENT THEN FORGET THIS GUIDE.
YOU'LL ALSO NEED SOME COMPUTER KNOWLEDGE.



READ CAREFULLY


1. Download: The Sims 3 - Razor1911 Final MAXSPEED and install it.
(If you already have it installed please uninstall it to avoid problems)

------------------
If you don't know ;
you will have to mount the iso file first
I recommend Daemon Lite
or
burn the image file into a blank DVD

-----------------


*2. Please DO NOT crack the game first ! and do not run the game either !


3. Download "The-Sims-3.Update.1.6.6-BAT" and extract
[NOTE: You can also search for similar patches at http://www.patches-scrolls.de/sims3.php  , make sure you get the correct version and region of the patch]


4. Go to the Patch folder and install "Sims3_1.6.6.002002_from_1.0.631.00002"

Reminder : Please DO NOT crack the game yet !

5. Search and download "The Sims 3 Update v1.7.9-FASDOX"
and run the patch
[NOTE: You can also search for similar patches at http://www.patches-scrolls.de/sims3.php  , make sure you get the correct version and region of the patch]

Reminder : Please DO NOT crack the game yet !



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SKIP STEP 6 and 8
if you DO NOT want to install the
Expansion pack : World Adventures

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




6. Now , download and install your "The.Sims.3.World.Adventures-RELOADED"


*7. Download "The.Sims.3.Update.v1.8.25-FASDOX"
and patch as similar in step 4 and 5
[NOTE: You can also search for similar patches at http://www.patches-scrolls.de/sims3.php  , make sure you get the correct version and region of the patch] 

Reminder : Please DO NOT crack the game yet !

8. Download "The.Sims.3.World.Adventures.Update.v2.3.33-FASDOX"
and patch your World Adventures.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



NOTE : DO NOT crack the game yet if you want to install The Sims 3 - High End Loft Stuff !
( located at the bottom of the post )

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ONLY CRACK YOUR GAME : When you've the latest version and installed the latest expansion.
You can't update if you're using a crack ; so replace your crack file with the original before update.


9. Last step, you can now replace the TS.exe and TS3EP01.exe with the crack found at
the patch of your latest installed version.
If you patched to version 1.8.25 ,
please use the crack from
The.Sims.3.Update.v1.8.25-FASDOX and so on.

PLAY THE GAME BY RUNNING THE CRACK FILE
TS.exe for The Sims 3 or TS3EP01.exe for WorldAdventures


.
.

.

Installation of High End Loft Stuff ( NEW !! )

VERY IMPORTANT - since I'm using the actual patches from a different site ; there will not be any original TS.exe nor TSEP01.exe bundled with your patch.
THUS , you will need to get back and replace your cracked file with the original file BEFORE you ever patch the game.


HOWEVER , if you have not crack the game and had followed my guide please follow the steps below.



1. Download the expansion.(The.Sims.3.High.End.Loft.Stuff-ViTALiTY)

2. Download these patches and patch your games.

i. The Sims 3 - Update v 1.10.6
ii. The Sims 3 - World Adventures - Update v 2.5.12
iii. The Sims 3 - High End Loft Stuff - Update v 3.1.7

[NOTE: You can also search for similar patches at http://www.patches-scrolls.de/sims3.php  , make sure you get the correct version and region of the patch] 



3. Lastly , find a crack ;
usually only The Sims 3 - High End Loft Stuff crack is needed to play the game.
You will not need a crack for World Adventures or the base game.

  3. hi

    thx for the game !!

    but at wich step do i need to enter the key code ??

    ReplyDelete
  4. hi ,

    You can enter the key code when you install the game. There's no problem about it.
    In fact , you have to enter the key code before you could actually install any games.

    ReplyDelete
  5. ok thx very much , but am i obliged to download world aventures or is it ok if i just dll sims 3

    ReplyDelete
  6. because i tried to instal it my way but i have a message who says something like "can not verified the disk" !

    please help joseph

    ReplyDelete
  7. It's okay to just install The Sims 3, the world adventures is actually just an expansion to the game which you could install it later if you want it.

    I need more details about ur error on "can not verified the disk"
    When it happen ? as in during the installation ?
    I'll need more details to know the situation better.

    ReplyDelete
  8. well when i mount the image then i enter a key code then the instalation runs, and then i can launch the game, see the video of the sims at the beggining then the game loads and at the end of the loading it just tells me that it can't verifie if the disk is original ?

    so everything works until this message after the loading time

    ReplyDelete
  9. Have you cracked the game yet ? as in replacing the cracked TS.exe with the original file in your computer.

    If you have not , this is what you do;

    When you mount the image ,
    Explore the contents of the mounted image.

    Search for folders named such as razor or crack.

    In the folder you'll find an exe file named TS.exe

    copy that file and paste it into your game destination.
    C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin
    and select overwrite the existing file.

    PLAY THE GAME by running the TS.exe

    Tell me if it works.

    ReplyDelete
  10. @the "could not verify disc" screen thing.
    I think its caused because you still have the ISO file Mounted...

    The same thing happened to me, but i dont know if it was because i reinstalled the game.. OR that i unmounted the ISO file.

    Please comment back on tryin to remove the ISO file, because i see alot ppl having this problem :P

    ReplyDelete
  11. Is the ISO file the WinZip file? Or what? I'm a little lost on that part.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Same problem to me, after loading appears the error "can not verified the disk" I am wonder why we dont crack it?

    ReplyDelete
  13. .iso file is an image file.

    Use Daemon Lite to mount the .iso in order to read the files.

    Or you can use nero or other programs to burn it into a DVD to install the game.

    ---------------------

    What do you mean " I am wonder why we don't crack it " ?

    You will have to manually crack it by replacing the original TS.exe file from the
    [game installed destination] with the one found in the crack folder.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Guys.. Try using my Method.
    UNMOUNT the disc/take disk out of DiscDrive(if burned) and it shouldnt say that it cant verify disc.

    Please just try it..

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hi, need help plz, i installed fine and played 4 d 1st tym gr8, but now when it start it says "we are unable to verify if this is a valid disc, please contact customer care"......

    so i tried recopying TS3.exe from crack into bin again, but now it won't run -it keeps popping in n out of my task manager- but wont run can any1 help plz!

    ReplyDelete
  16. OMG dude your awesome

    Heres what i did....

    after patch has installed dont copy over the crack included with the update..
    After crack final crack (1.8.25) has been installed copy the crack included with the update over the orignal TS3.exe....

    ReplyDelete
  17. OH NO.....
    the recources.cfg file in your description doesnt work for me, i can not download from rapidshare as it just says error.
    Is it possible to get another download link.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have added another mirror for the resources.cfg file.

    Anyway it's also possible to make it yourself.
    Create a new text document

    Open it up and paste this into the content;

    Priority 500
    DirectoryFiles Mods/Packages/... autoupdate
    PackedFile Mods/Packages/*.package
    PackedFile Mods/Packages/*/*.package
    PackedFile Mods/Packages/*/*/*.package
    PackedFile Mods/Packages/*/*/*/*.package
    PackedFile Mods/Packages/*/*/*/*/*.package
    PackedFile Mods/DCCache/*.dbc

    then , rename the file into resource.cfg

    ReplyDelete
  19. thx joseph for your help but i don't find any TS.exe file in the image ?!

    in the razor file there is only the keygen

    intro

    ReplyDelete
  20. Id just like to ask, when you installed the riverview world do all the sims have names like roots of folders (e.g. game/sims/simovl, the houses also have names like this too.
    How do i fix this or is it an error with the resources.cfg file

    ReplyDelete
  21. It's so hard to reply since everyone's anonymous , haha.

    Okay , since you couldn't find the crack. Why not you download "The-Sims-3.Update.1.6.6-BAT" and patch the game first ? A crack is bundled with the patch itself. Or you could patch it up to "The.Sims.3.Update.v1.8.25-FASDOX".
    But do take note that you have to apply each patch one by one [ gradually ]
    1.66 > 1.79 > 1.8.25

    For the riverview problem you'll have to follow all the steps up till step 5. given in the [Installation of Riverview and Custom Contents] section as it requires you to have the .dbc files in order to work.
    A single riverview.world file will not work.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hey Joseph...it we are able to patch up to v1.8.25 do we still need to use the crack file and do a replacement in the Game/bin folder. If so, which crack do we install...from what update rather? Thanx!

    ReplyDelete
  23. My name is Ashley by the way (just posted above) :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hi Ashley,

    You will still need a crack when you update to v1.8.25
    If you downloaded the patch through the link in my blog at step 7. "The.Sims.3.Update.v1.8.25-FASDOX"

    There's a crack folder which contains the cracked TS.exe and you will have to do a replacement in the Game/bin folder.

    In short , use the crack bundled together with the "The.Sims.3.Update.v1.8.25-FASDOX".

    ReplyDelete
  25. HELLO joseph

    am i obliged to do setp 3 and 4 if i do not want to install the
    Expansion pack : World Adventures ??

    thx

    intro

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hi,

    I suppose you're asking about patching the base game to a newer version ?

    Actually , it's your call whether you want to patch your game. However , I advised you to do so as it fixes the game ( bugs and etc ).

    If you wanted to install the Expansion Pack , then you're obliged to at least update your base game to version 1.7.9

    ReplyDelete
  27. OKAY,when it says in step 5 to patch as similar to step 4 or whatever is it the same patch or the second patch under the first one?? Or is it the same patch?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hehe , i get what you meant.

    Okay, to make it simple ;

    When you have downloaded
    "The Sims 3 Update v1.7.9-FASDOX"

    Just run the v1.7.9 patch

    ReplyDelete
  29. For any update past 1.6.6.002002, it gives that (common) Invalid file error.
    I've followed the guide exactly and I'm still stuck without World Adventures.
    As a side note, FML.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hi Joesph...this is Ashley again. One more question: I followed all your instructions and installed all patches/updates and WA. Each update (patch) has a crack folder. After step 8. Download The.Sims.3.World.Adventures Update.v2.3.33-FASDOX Should this be the crack that we replace in the game/bin? I doesn't make much sense to us any other of the previous patches? :-/ Thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  31. In step 8 when patching World Adventures with that download which folder are we suppose to patch it with and thanks for answering the question with step 5 haha thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  32. When you installed World adventures , the crack goes into C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 World Adventures\Game\Bin

    @Tassadar , did you crack the game after u patched it to v1.6.6 ? Cause we will only need to crack after we have updated to the "latest" version. Usually for my case , I'll copy and keep my original TS.exe somewhere as a backup. If you try to patch the game with a cracked TS.exe , it wouldn't work

    ReplyDelete
  33. TO just to make things clear;

    WE only crack , after we have updated our game to the latest , desired version.

    When you start patching from v 1.6.6 , we don't have to crack yet.
    Continue patching the game until version 1.8.25.
    THEN , we crack the game.

    will update my guide to further clarify this matter.
    Thank you

    ReplyDelete
  34. When I tried to install the game like the first step says an error comes up that says "The file C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin\bin\cs-CZ\Sims3Launcher.resources.dll doesn't match the file in the setup's .cab file. The medium from which you are running the setup may be corrupted; contact your software vendor."

    What do I do to fix this? :/

  36. Hi Jessica ,

    Can i know where you downloaded your game setup file ?
    Is it the first time you're trying to install ? If it is, then most probably your setup file is corrupted.
    You have to right click the Sims 3 torrent and force-recheck if you're using utorrent to download.

    Hi Kevin ,
    You mean you wanted to use the webcam to show me how you install eh ?
    I'll add you in MSN and we'll see how k.

    ReplyDelete
  37. yeah thx

    i did 2 videos with a special program that captures my screen like this i just send it to you via msn

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hi Kevin ,
    Before you send me the video can i know what problem you're having with installing the game ?

    Also , to protect your email I think I'll remove your previous comment which contains your email address.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Looks like you're really paying attention, so I'll ask about my problem here, too. I'm getting two results whenever I try to open the game. Either it starts to tun and opens to fullscreen, then immediately shuts down, or I get an Error message with the following text:

    "The application failed to initialize properly. Please ensure you are not attempting to run the application on multiple Windows accounts simultaneously. If the problem still persists, please reinstall the application."

    I followed your directions to the letter, even using the links and downloads listed, so what am I doing wrong here?

    Thanks,
    D

    ReplyDelete
  40. In my previous post, I'd like to correct a typo: on the second line, "tun" is supposed to be "run."

    -D

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hi D,

    I need to know some details regarding your error
    - What version of The Sims 3 you're playing ( as in patches )?
    - Does it includes the Expansion pack ?
    - What OS are you using ?
    - You have nvr been able to play the game at all ever since you've downloaded it ?

    At the mean time you could take a look at this and tell me if it helps.

  42. -I'm running the final patched versions you listed here in the blog, 1.8.25 for TS3 and 2.3.33 for TS3:WA.
    -Yes, I'm using the expansion pack.
    -I'm on WinXP.
    -I had an old copy of TS3 installed from a different torrent some time ago, but it quit working, so I redownloaded and followed your guide.

    As for using RegCure like that link suggested, it found tons of errors, and supposedly fixed them, but that didn't fix my error for this.

    Thanks,
    D

    ReplyDelete
  43. To clarify, both errors I mentioned before are still happening after using RegCure; the listed box and text error, and the game starting to boot but shutting down before it ever really loads.

    -D

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hi,

    Since when you're having this problem ( after any changes in computer settings or whatsoever you could recall ) ?
    When you installed , did you untick the installation of the EA download manager ?

    If you have then
    Try , uninstalling your game. Download CCleaner , and run both cleaner and registry scan. Then try installing without the EA download manager.
    Try running THe SIms 3 without the WA first , and if it works then install your WA.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'll try that. Update coming.

    -D

    ReplyDelete
  46. Alas, while I didn't have the Error message pop up (although that one usually came up when I was trying to run it through the launcher, which I circumvented this time), the game (and the expansion .exe as well) both loaded to full screen black, and then stopped loading, crashing without any kind of error message. I have a different .iso for the expansion than your guide listed though, and in the interest of total investigation, I'm now downloading the correct .iso, and I'll try following through all the directions again. I will update with another post when I'm done.

    Thanks,
    -D

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hey can u help me? Whenever i try to play The Sims 3, from the TS3.exe it cuts off right after the little introduction video plays. I did crack it. If i try to play The Sims 3 from the launcher it says "No game disc found. Please insert The Sims World Adventure before proceeding." I also cracked that. Does anyone know what the problem is?

    ReplyDelete
  48. Just letting you know, I'm having all the same problems as before. I don't have a solution, here.

    -D

    ReplyDelete
  49. Thanks for all your help so far.

    So I tried installing just the Sims 3 base game, to see if I had any more success with that. Now I'm getting a totally different error:

    "Unable to start game

    Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb)"

    I looked around for some possible solutions to this, and so far, nothing's worked. I used this guide, especially: http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Sims_3_Loading_Crashes

    Thanks for the help,

  50. Hi.. I can't patch the first patch.. it says 'The setup has detected that the installed game region for this update is incorrect.

    This update requires a different game region in order to be installed.'

    so what do i do now? please help... :S

    ReplyDelete
  51. hey there
    i really need some help i've been trying to get this thing to work for days now!
    the common problems i'm facing is a) when i try to overwrite the original TS3, it tells me i need disk authorization/validation (something of that sort). i've re-installed the game so many times using different methods each time. i've adjusted my firewall, sometimes i would actually be able to open the game but before i could do anything the disk issue came up again, closing the program. and error 0x0775dcbb has occured over and over again. i use daemon tools and winrar, could it be the programs? jeez i'm going crazy here i would greatly appreciate some pro advice!!cheers.

    ReplyDelete
  52. @D
    Your problems seems to occur due to your computer system , be it your drivers are not updated or anything. Pretty much not related to the game installation method or whatsoever. If you're using ATI graphic cards , try updating your driver. Sometimes it might be your system file's being changed due to other programs or it could also be some programs interfering with your game.

    You can't patch the game due to the difference in game region. The version of The Sims you're using is not Razor's right ?
    Go to www.patches-scrolls.de to search for the patch of the region you're using.

    @ IRINA
    The disk authorization thing will require you to be the admin of your PC. It's actually limiting your account to make changes in your PC if you're not using the admin account.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Thanks, I'll give all that a try. Honestly, if this doesn't work, I'm considering giving up on it.

    But thanks again for being so patient.

  54. maybe it wasn't meant to be :(

    Do u know what wrong with mine?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hi Selina,

    Does the base game works ? I mean without the installation of World Adventures ?
    I don't really have a solution for your case , because it could be cause by many different factors and errors. I might be the game's problem or your computer's.
    Btw , do you have problem with other games ?
    I assume you're using Razor's version of The SIms 3 right ?

    @ Irina
    Your main problem is you could not overwrite the file ( TS.exe) right ? Try disabling User Account Control and see if it works.

    @ D
    I'm really sorry that I couldn't help you get the game working , but if you really wanted to play the game so much. Maybe you could make a backup of your computer files , have a clean installation of your OS , and then try to see if the Sims 3 works. Sometimes there's too many conflicts which causes error in computers.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hi,

    I have a stupid problem. When I try to install the first patch, it says "Corrupt file found". What should I do?
    Is it because I have downloaded the RELOADED version of TS3? I downloaded it some time ago, and I already had it when World Adventures came out, so i thought I could let it be...

    -Emi

    ReplyDelete
  58. Hi Emi,

    I believe that you are using the cracked TS.exe file when you're patching. You will to replace back the original TS.exe file or in short removes all your crack files and then proceed with your patching.
    If not , try reinstalling the game.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I tried and it didn't work...
    I don't think it's because of the serial... or maybe...?
    I still think it's the RELOADED version that keeps me from updating. The thing that annoys me more is that I can't even download the razor1911 version because it says something about file size limit exceeded (?), and then just keeps stopping downloading. Stupid PC.
    Do you have any solutions to this problem? I don't mind spending more days for it to download, but as long as it's at least downloading, I'm happy!!! I searched google and found... nothing.

    -Emi

  60. Heheh, fixed it by myself in the end. :)
    It seemed the problem was at the helpfiles, I just downloaded different ones.

  68. I've done this like 4 different times now. The game works and is completely playable...except its not. It's glitchy. Especially on vacation. I'm also not sure if the extras are actually in the game. Any ideas what I could do?

    Sorry to say that the glitches are actually not related to the installation of the game. Unless they released a new patch to fix the glitches...especially in world adventures.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Ok, the game is still playable. Thanks a bunches!!! ^_^

  71. Hi Joseph,

    You're a very helpful person!
    I just downloaded The Sims 3 - Razor1911 Final MAXSPEED. I want to use your guide, and you say I have to mount the image first. I've been looking for hours, but I can't find the .iso file you're talking about. I've downloaded the game again, but I still can't find it. Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks in advance :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. I suppose you will have to extract the file first. Download WINRAR and extract the files (namely with the .rar or .zip extensions). Then you will find your .iso image file

    ReplyDelete
  73. There's only one file I can extract, named 'The Sims 3 - Razor1911 MAXSPEED www.torentz.3xforum.ro'
    I just extracted the file and there's still no .iso file. I've looked everywhere.
    There are 2 other files I can extract, but I keep getting an error.

  74. Oh , okay after i look into your snapshot ; from that current location you will not have to extract anything , but instead run the Sims3setup.

  75. Hi Joseph, mind uploading the The.Sims.3.Update.v1.8.25-FASDOX again? Link seem to be broken. Thanks. Awesome guide btw ,)

  76. The link isn't broken for The.Sims.3.Update.v1.8.25-FASDOX,
    anyhow you could try downloading here.

  77. First off I want to thank for this guide! like no joke! :] I've done everything you've listed I installed the base game and the ep I then used the patches then I cracked but I still keep getting the "no disc found. Please enter the sims 3 world adventures game disc before proceeding."

    ReplyDelete
  78. @Shay If you're getting that kind of error there's only 2 possibility which is;

    1. You've used either the wrong patch version or crack the crack version.
    2. You did not run the game through the crack, please note that you shouldn't run the game through the default shortcut but rather the TSEP01.exe

    ReplyDelete
  79. Hmm I guess I used the wrong patch or crack version because it says "unable to start game"

    I guess I'll just wait a month for my brother to come help me out with it, but thank you soo much for creating this guide. :]

  84. After installing everything, can i delete the installers? it is taking up alot of memory. Is there any effect if I remove it from my Pc? thank you for answering :)

    ReplyDelete
  85. @Rachelle

    Yup , you can delete the installers and there will not be any effect if you remove it. Unless you're planning to reinstall the game , then you'll need to re-download everything.

    ReplyDelete
  86. @DLking

    Have to extract the files ? Some .zip / .rar files need to be extracted before you could be able to find the proper file to be mounted.

    @Anonymous

    I believe you'll be needing the serial in order to run the installer.

  87. After downloading the crack for high end loft stuff, where do i put the TS3SP01.exe?

  89. Whenever i click TS3SPO1.exe, This one always comes out "THIS APPLICATION HAS FAILED TO START BECAUSE d3dx9_31.dll was not found." What to do? I appreciate everything.

    Last thing, do i need to download the installation of riverview and custom contents when installing the high end loft stuff?

    Thanks again. :)

    ReplyDelete
  90. @Rachelle

    You don't have to download and install riverview and custom contents.

    About your problem with d3dx9_31.dll , try downloading Direct X9. It probably got to do with your direct X.

    You may try this link:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=1A2393C0-1B2F-428E-BD79-02DF977D17B8&displaylang=en

    If it doesn't help , try searching(google) your error on (THIS APPLICATION HAS FAILED TO START BECAUSE d3dx9_31.dll was not found);
    there's lots of solutions out there in the net.

    ReplyDelete
  91. the direct X worked! thank you for that. But now i have new problem. After i click the crack, a black screen opens then this, "Unable to start the game. Service initialization failed (0x039e8474)"

    I dont know what to do. Im sorry for asking too much. But Im thankful you're there to answer me. :)

    I have problem in updating Sims 3 when I want to install World Adventure
    There s a error message stated Sims 3 Game/Bin/ko KR/bsnoilnhtv file is not found.
    So the access to update has denied.
    Is it because I has a Sims 3 reloaded version?

    ReplyDelete
  93. @Rachelle

    Actually I'm not too sure about the problem you're having there it seems that its got to do with your computer.
    Try searching the net and see if it could provide you with a solution.
    On the other hand ,
    Do you have problem running the game without the expansion ? Or is it the first time you're running the game ?

    @Michzfern

    I'm not too sure about the difference for the "reloaded version" and also razors. Maybe you could try reinstalling your base game first ? If it still couldn't work , it'll most probably be the reloaded version's fault. So you might need to redownload the game (razor's version).

    ReplyDelete
  94. I have the razor version of sims 3 but I want to put world adventures now. How can I do it without uninstalling my sims 3? Is it possible?

    ReplyDelete
  95. Ok, I feel REALLY stupid. And I have read through all the comments and it seems like everyone has gotten much farther than me, so I must be!

    Anyway, first I got the Sims-3.Update.1.6.6-BAT and didn't have to extract it, it just opened and showed me a bunch of R00 files. What to do with that?

    And second, I tried to install the Final Patch and it keeps telling me:

    "Setup has detected that no version of the Sims 3 is installed. This update requires that a previous update of the application be installed."

    What have I done or haven't done? Thanks for being so helpful!

  96. Also, have searched all over Google and tried your link and still can't find the Patch: sims3_1.8.25.003002_from_1.7.9.002002.zip.

  97. @Anonymous

    You can continue to install World Adventures without uninstalling The Sims 3 , however please make sure you're at the correct version before installing World Adventures.

    Hi Jessyca,

    For the patches try searching through http://www.patches-scrolls.de/sims3.php
    and download those particular patches you need.

    and with the R00 files , I believe you will need to extract those files. In my case , using WINRAR.

    Which Final Patch do you mean ?
    As in , you haven't even update the Sims 3 to version 1.6.6 ?

  100. It doesn't work -.-;
    I've tried everything for hours...
    i followed the instructions on the torrent site and uninstalled then followed your instructions and still, it doesn't work.

    I don't get any errors like most of the other people, i just try to run the game from the cracked file and it does nothing.
    my screen turns black for a sec and then, nothing.

    I tried both of my windows xp and windows 7.
    on 7 it doesn't even let me run the patches, but on xp i do fine to the last step , when it simply doesn't work after i try to turn in on.

    please help me!!i'm dying to play this game!!!!!

    sorry I'm not too sure with the problems you're having , it might be due to your computer system or your graphic card. I don't think I could help you in this but if you are really keen in getting this game to work ; reformatting your computer and installing back your windows might be an easier way out

    @Shale

    It could be that the rar file you've downloaded is corrupted. It should contain the .iso file

  109. Okay, I'm sorta new to this whole thing and I tried my best to follow all instructions and when
    I start the game TS3.exe or whatever from the Sims 3 folder, It starts up then shows the video and whatnot then it shuts off to the desktop.
    No error message is given or anything, please help?

    ReplyDelete
  110. + Oh yeah to add, I also tried to install the World Adventures expansion pack and I tried to install the High End Loft Stuff too. I have successfully installed the Sims 3 before, but that was just the Sims 3 only. So I figure my problem is something with the World Adventures or the High End Loft stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  111. @Serec

    Actually there's a number of people experiencing the same problem you're having. I'm not too sure whether there's a solution out there though.

    Anyhow ; just to add on if you have world adventures installed , run the game using TS3EP01.exe ; run from the expansion folders from each respective game.

  112. Hi,
    I can't seem to find the 1.7.9 patch to work. The site suggested here is blocked by my virusprogram and I've tried everything to unblock it.

  114. Hi Joseph,
    I've tried ur method of installing as well as razor1911's way, but I will always get the same results. Everytime i try running ts3.exe, the screen goes black for a few seconds and then returns me back to windows. I also know a few other users are having this problem but none of them have been answered or solved =(

    ReplyDelete
  115. Hi, Joseph. i would like to ask a question. Razor1911 version is wat version?? 1.0.631.00001 or 1.0.631.00002 ??? the number 1 at the end stands for wat?? region code??

  117. Hi Joseph,
    I have the sims3 1.0.615.00107 version,so I can't install the first patch.Is it possible to update to version 1.0.631.0002?
    When I try to install any patch a dialog box comes up saying "the installed game region for this update is incorrect"-how could I fix it?
    Thank you for the detailed description,anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I believe that after you checked this website
    http://www.patches-scrolls.de/sims3.php

    you'll know what patch you should apply. The number behind the version is the region code. So patch according to the region of your game

  119. Just one question, the downloads were all fine and installation is going great, thanks. When I install all the expansion packs can I play them as one big game or just sepratley. If I can play them together, how do I do this?

  120. Oh actually not just one question. When I apply the cracks to the games after installing them do I have to install a crack to each of the different game packs so like 1 to sims 3 1 to ambitions etc. Plus where about do the cracks go? Thanks alot :)

    ReplyDelete
  121. Never mind I've got it all sorted now. They do play as one big game. Thanks mate I've been having trouble with installing these for ages now as I'm rubbish at computer stuff. Just followed your instructions word for word and it worked great. Thanks a lot.

  135. Hello. I'm Lavena.

    I have the base game version 1.10.6.004002 and High End Loft version 3.1.7.004001.

    When I try to play (I cracked Loft already) I get the message "Your The Sims 3 Base Game is incompatible with the current Sims 3 Expansion Pack. Please update your game via the game launcher".

    What am I doing wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  136. This is Lavena. Scratch that. I have version 1.11.7.005002 of the base game.

  137. This is Lavena. Scratch that AGAIN. I have High End Loft version 3.2.8.005001. I updated it hoping that it would help.

  138. toss - redownload ur patch file.
    Lavena - either ur base game needs a newer patch ; or ur base game is really not compatible. are using razor1911's ?

  139. which means ill just re-download the patch file which is from your link again? is that it?
    -ToSs-

    ReplyDelete
  140. Im sorry? But wtf. I have followed EVERY SINGLE STEP 3 times NOW. and you know what? it doesn't work anymore. Your crack for ambitions only gave me errors and the launcher didn't work. In the beginning I was like: Omg hey! this is so freaking cool I wanna thank you millions but now.. It just made me pissed.. This shit doesn't work. I don't believe that this Sims 3 shit are ever going to work. So why does it keep asking for a retail dvd after i installed Ambitions? is it your crack that doesn't work? Or what is it? Dont call me a noob, I've done this for years but this Sims 3 thing. Seems like no one figured out how to copy that game. and yeah oh. Your steps.. You should really tell people when to update and not. You say that you have to download those patches before installing Loft but thats not enough, it askes for more downloads and thats where it fails. Otherwise that, good tut. great work.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Firstly Lola ,

    Just wanna correct a little , the cracks are not mine. It is never been developed by me.

    2nd , launcher aren't meant to be executed ; instead you should run the game from TS3.EXE and so on depending on the version of the game.

    3rdly, every mentioned patch are required. If you didn't patch your base game you couldn't even run the installation of High End Loft Stuffs. and most importantly patches are to correct bugs and errors in the game.

    If every other people could get this to work ; but not you. Who do you think is doing the wrong thing here ?

    ReplyDelete
  142. hi , first of all congrats for this great work , and sorry if my english isn't really ok .
    i have a question .for example,the files contained by The.Sims.3.High.End.Loft.Stuff-ViTALiTY aren't .iso. what i'm supposed to do in this situation?the only solution is the utilisation of MAGIC ISO?because i don't really understand how to do that .. sorry if i repeated the question .thanks!

    do you have a solution for me? it would be appreciated..

  156. FROM: Username5
    Hi will this thing work if I have a LEGAL copy of sims 3 base game but downloaded the World Adventures expansion from Razor1911 (extremezone)? Previously I downloaded and installed everything but it didn't work, unable to verify disc as a valid copy or something. I am using the admin account by the way. No problems transferring the crack but it still shows the message.

    Here's how I installed it previously:
    Started with base game, patched it, then got the World Adventures installed, patched, then cracked using the crack found in the download - when you download the World Adventures and mount it, you can find the crack in the "Crack" folder already. (I only want World adventures expansion)

    So I have a few questions:
    1) Do we need to use the torrent version of the base game as well for World Adventures to work?
    2)Do we need to use the crack above, or can we use the one found in the world adventures torrent?
    3) I heard from somewhere NOT to install EA download manager, is that true? Will there be problems if I install EA download manager? (which I did not)
    4)Must the patches be EXACTLY those versions shown above, are there anymore more advanced patches, or less advanced patches? (I remember installing patches but i'm not sure if they were as up-to-date)

    Okay, I want to get the Riverview and the Custom Content but the link you gave us in step one requires us to have an account at Demonoid.me to download it.

    (Registration is off)

    I want to follow your way but I cant download the same file as you. Do you know any other site I might get the same torrent file?

    I can give you my email if you would think it would be easier or something.

    I did install everything untill World Adventures, patched, and cracked. I entered the game from the TS3EP01 file. But when I enter a message popped up, saying that my video card unknow or something like that, I clicked OK.

    When I tried to enter the neighborhood but, as soon as the loading bar fills, the game simply closes, and I go back to the DeskTop...

    Do you know something to fix it??

  163. After reading various tutorials on installing The Sims 3 pirated copy, ONLY YOUR TUTORIAL has shown me how to properly update my base game without getting the disc validation error that I kept getting on both my desktop and laptop. Thank you 100,000 times!

  164. When I opened the first crack and installed it, there was a problem, like "error was found..."!

    Can someone help me please?

  166. Okay...umm...I know its been a long time, and I don't expect a reply, but thank you if you do... I can't seem to patch it more than one time, I've been at this for the past 5 hours, and nothing has really happened yet...

    I can patch the 1st one fine, but each of the other patches always say missing file...I've tried re-patching twice now which hasn't done anything...so its a bit depressing if anyone could help I would be very grateful v.v

  167. Sorry , I don't have late night so I couldnt write a guide on it , however I believe that the steps are similar with the other expansions.

    Abyss , can you list out the missing files ? Thanks

    Other problems regarding graphic cards or issues like game could not start I'm sorry I couldn't help ; because these problems are very subjective as in your hardware , your operating system , settings and so on. Hope that you could find your solution else where.

  169. I can't seem to figure out, I've tried a few times...maybe I did something wrong? Okay I installed it (not started or cracked) I didn't mount it because I couldn't find the "image" so instead I mounted the file, which seemed to work. I downloaded and patched the patch mentioned in step 3 and 4. I downloaded the step 5 patch, which extracting it was a complete pain, but I eventually got that...after that I opened the folder, and ran the patch (the one for the mentioned version) and near the end it said "File not found" (something along those lines) So I ran the 2nd patch in the folder instead, and got the same error. I re-installed the first step 3-4 patch again, thinking maybe something messed up or corrupted, but same thing happened...I opened the game and checked to make sure I had the correct version, which I did, so uninstalled, reinstalled, and tried again...please tell me if I did do something wrong, and if there's a way I can correct it >.<

  170. Okay, I got the 2nd patch to work, but now the patch link in 7 isn't working, i've tried many websites but they don't seem to work, does anyone know a working one?

  171. How do I use multiple expansion packs? I'm currently only able to view Late Night, but I'm trying to surprise my girlfriend with World Adventures. All the patches are up to date, all the crack files have replaced the original-old files and I'm stuck, because when I try to launch only TS3 or TS3WorldAdventures, it doesn't respond and only opens up with the TS3LateNight, however i've created shortcuts from the cracked .exe files for each expansion respectively. Any idea?

  175. how to download the sim 3 late night ??? please teach me.. :(

    ReplyDelete
  176. hei joseph, hope you will answer, altough it's been a while since i saw a comment of urs. I have one question, those are the latest patches?i mean i;ve been trying for a few days now to install all the expansions, but i patch the base game with what they say, it's the latest version v1.22.9, and wordl adventures with patch 2.17.2. i got them here:
    http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:TS3_Patching:Patch_Download/Current

    I had sims 3 and all the expansions until late night a while ago, but i moved from desktop to laptop and now i want it here, on laptop and i can't install it, in the end after patching and installing everything it says not a valid copy of the cf etc.
    maybe there's a problem i can't play it on laptop? i have a sony vaio VPCEA47EC, or the version of patches?

    thank you

    ReplyDelete
  177. oh i forgot to say that when i had it on desktop i installed kind of a complicated torrent, i mean, it's called sims 3 full retail +store objects +world adventures and in the guide it said to copy the "help pages" from the wa dvd to where u installed sims 3 and type in run regedit and change sku value, kind of weird stuff like that in order to work :-?.

    now i'm trying with razor version but i get the problem i explained above in the previous comment

    thanks again

  178. Hi, you're awesome. Thanks for taking the time to write these. Do you also have instructions for Generations and Late Night?

    ReplyDelete
  179. :) ok, i'll have to rephrase that. i haven't cracked the game. as a matter of fact i'm still waiting for the world adv to download. so, i finish installing ambitions expansion and than i don't crack it (i don't want the custom content thingie). afterwards i install generations. than i install late night expansion (does the order matter? i guess it shouldn't matter, right?) and than crack all with the late night crack. um...what i'm missing is the patches for generations and late night. and i don't even know where to start looking. i'd really appreciate an answer. i can't wait to play the game properly, with all exp.

  185. How do I get a reg. code?

    ReplyDelete
  186. I would like to install the other expansions as well. I see the guide for Ambitions, but what patch do I need for Late Night?

    Or do I just update my base game to the latest version and just update the EPs?

    ReplyDelete

  194. I just downloaded the high end loft expansion and when I open the file there is nothing to mount or unzip. I get a "windows can't open this file" when I double click the .001 file, and winzip doesn't recognize it to unzip it.

    Is is just a problem with my download?

    ReplyDelete
  195. Hi, Joseph

  198. and i have mounted the image and everything i just get that my disc cannot be verified. now, i have a couple questions. i was told that your supposed to copy and paste the tslhost.dll to the ts3.ex but thats not even working. aslo my launcher asks if i want to update my version should i update?

    ReplyDelete
  199. Copy Tslhost.dll and Ts3.exe from the crack folder into your base folder in program files.
    Replace the files.
    Run the game by double-clicking the Ts3.exe after you cracked.

    And no ,
    you should never update using your launcher.
