DO NOT UPDATE YOUR GAME

if you do your sliders hack will not work, the master controller is working fine (Jack told me) but he is not sure what else is working yet will keep you posted on whats affected

Pretty much everything will be affected. Anything that wouldn't work when the game updated last time will run the risk of messing things up if it runs on the wrong game version.

I'd advise to at the very least wait for Twallan's updates, then we have some form of slider hack (we'll need the updated version of the mc integration mod for that to work properly, so even if the mc is working properly it's pretty much useless until everything else is updated)

The worst mods you can run on the wrong game version are things like Awesomemod (which does so much it's bound to bork everything), and Error Trap & Overwatch that mess with your save file. Be careful to check you've removed all your mods at the very least if you're desperate to update!

And be prepared for a long wait for mod updates! Bearing in mind that #aWT's slider hack is inaccessible and will not be updated.

See my post here for more info on the game update.

GOD I HATE UPDATES SO MUCH.

*sigh* all we can do is wait for the updated mc integration so you can at least have the sliders back.

Until then it's going to be a loooong wait for updates Sleep

You can go back to the last back up save file you have in your Saves folder, so it depends when that was if it's worth it or not.

If it's too far back you'll end up losing everything and will have to sit through a while of carefully installing cumulative updates until 1.26 (I'm sure there are threads on the sims 3 forums with links to the old updates if your back up is too far back)

If you want to restore the back up I'll have a look for a decent guide, I think you just have to do some re-naming of files, but I can't remember exactly how you do it, there'll be tutorials out there somewhere lol Isla's brain has been taken over by uni work at the minute!

I think it would have to be the whole thing if you wanted to do it through reinstalling since there were base game updates in the new version.

Which is a shame because if it weren't for that you could probably just do EP's... but nooo they have to shove everything in one, which is great for every situation except this one haha!

I'm not sure if you'll get the 1.26 update when you install pets or if it will skip straight to 1.30? I've never reinstalled and actually paid attention to which updates it comes up with so I have no idea if it'll work like that. scratch

I'm sure I saw a thread over at the sims 3 forum once, something about cumulative updates... It was a while ago lol memory and sims knowledge failing me. I'll check.
