I have had the sims 3, the sims 3 world adventures, and the sims 3 high-end loft stuff for quite some time now. every once and a while, the launcher tells me to update my game, which i do, and everything goes smoothly for the most part. The last time i tried to install an update as it said, everything went normal until the update was installed. I opened the launcher again to play the game after updating, but it told me i needed to update the game again so i did, but this time, right before it was going to update,it told me i had already installed this update and that i could do it again but it wouldn't be nessesary. I did it again anyway and it again told me I needed to install the update again. I've installed the same update about 10 times, but it won't let me play the sims 3...can anyone help me?
I have a similar problem I have most of the Sims 3 not including Sims 3 fast lane and Sims 3 outdoor living stuff.. and Recently when released i installed The Sims 3 Generations.. I don't really download my games updates i just skip to playing, i know i should and all but now when i try to it says that it fail to install because it was interrupted and i'm not sure what interrupted it, nothing was up.... Also it gives me this other option to update something else and then it said i'd have to Uninstall my expansion pack(s) which i don't want to do because i have saved data... would i loose it of i did do that? UGH ITS SO FRUSTRATING i would normally just go and skip and play the game but i want my game to run faster and i want it to be updated with the other things that come with the update.... [b]OMG PLEASE HELP
i cant play my sims3 pets game that i have only just purchased!!!!
Everytime i go to install the game a update comes up that i have to accept to install the game i keep having to do this and nothing happens! tried 3 different computers everyone the same...
I had exactly the same problem and someone told me on the internet that it's to do with your downloads. Go to 'Downloads' on the sims 3 launcher and unistall them all. Then you may play your game, I did this and i can now play sims :3
i recently purchased late night, generations and pets expansion packs, ive had no problem installing them but everytime ive tried playinning them i get the message needs to reinstall base game! does any1 else have this trouble? ive not yet got to play my new games as im reluctant to unistall my sims 3 to reinstall, will it mess up my other expansion packs?
I was having the EXACT same problem for like days. But it all started when I download the EA Download Manager. So just a few minutes ago I unistalled the EA Download Manager and it worked!
I'm just saying maybe this may be a solution.
