The lastest game release disc is always the one you have to use. You will still be playing with all your Late Night content and saved games.

I have the same problem with the Master suites stuff pack. I've heard that stuff packs aren't suppost to be the disc you play with, that it's suppost to be the latest expansion you've installed (for me, it should be Pets but it wants Master suites).

It's the latest installed game, in the order of the installation NOT the order that the EP/SPs are released.

So it'll ask for Master Suite's disc even if you have Pets installed if you installed Master Suite's last.

Actually, I installed Pets before Generations or Ambitions, and I still had to use pets. Maybe it's different with SPs

It's latest released, not latest installed. I bought Master Suite last night but I'm still using my Pets disc.

You haven't wasted your money at all! The only problem is you're putting the Late Night disk in the launcher when you should actually be putting in the Pets disk. The way that Expansion packs work is latest released not latest installed, as Angierae mentioned. So, for example; Late Night was the third expansion pack released, however Pets is the fifth expansion paack released, making it the latest released out of all the expansion packs which you have. Hope this helped

You are playing with it if you installed it..the disk it runs off doesnt matter as long as you have the pack installed

I had the same question about the stuff packs disk and the Seasons disk. But If I'm understanding this correctly, it doesn't matter....okay so it doesn't matter that if I installed the 70's 80's and 90's stuff pack first then installed Seasons. But it still asks for the stuff packs disk.

I guess it wasn't how I installed it..as long as the game works, reeeeeaaaally slow, but it works. (almost takes nearly 5 minutes to load, sometimes timing out and stops responding, kind of annoying)But it works after a while.

My Latenight expansion pack does the same thing. I just got it last night and it tells me to insert The Sims 3 Seasons, so basically what you are saying is that you insert the disc, after that installs take it out, then it is applied to the newest expansion pack that you have?

I'm having a similar problem with my games. I recently purchased University, then Seasons, then Generations. I went to play the Seasons game but it asked me to insert my University disk, so to avoid this I just uninstalled University. However now I've installed Generations it's asking me the same thing after re-installing University. I can understand what you're saying if you run off the most recent game, but then how do you choose what game you actually play. All three game plays are different, especially University is a drastic difference. So if you're wanting to play Seasons but are one the University disk, surely that it's possible? As you can't choose in game... Please help someone
