PostSubject: Game and Forum Issues, Please Help!   25/5/2014, 05:29

I'm having an issue with my game, it doesn't let me install .sims3pack files. I've been trying to install some new lots, but the file does not install at all...I tried by double clicking the file, I tried it by right click and "open" too...well, the launcher opens though, but the installing screen never shows, basically nothing happens. Have anyone had this problem before? If anyone can help, I'll be very, very grateful  luv doctor  luv doctor  luv doctor   




In a different note...I'm having forum issues too. I can't see any pictures posted on this forum topics, it only happens when I use Chrome...anyone knows why?? I've been using Internet Explorer since the problem started, but it's such a drag cuz it's so slow frustrated So, I would like to know if there's a solution so I can come online here by using Chrome hearty luvs Any help would be appreciated luv doctor

on the 2nd issue with the images on the forum, I use firefox, its as fast as chrome and I have no problems at all.

You can visit this link and see if your java is up to date

Other than that I have no idea on why you would not see images.  more love

Hi francheska. first of all i'm using Chrome at the moment to see if i can see everything. and it's all ok for me.

about the not being able to install your lots. have you tried to install anything else ?? also do you have the launcher set to Run As Administrator ??

also when and what was the last thing you installed. also here is something else you can try to do to see if your Launcher has something wrong with it.

first move your The Sims 3 Folder to your decktop. then open launcher and start your game. once your game has started do all the things you would with your setting. ie screen size ect then quite and save. once it has closed down open the launcher again and you will get a New Store Content Patch Available notice. click yes also by doing all this is makes a new The Sims 3 folder.

once you have done this try to install the lots again. if this works then you may of had some bad cc in your game. :) XX

Another thing you may want to try with Chrome is clearing your browser data. Up in the top right hand corner you should see something like this click on it and go down to "Tools" you should have a box pop up click on clear browser data. I've had to do this from time to time with IE, Chrome and Firefox.

Hope this helps hunny!

As far as your items not installing, I haven't had that problem but I will see what I can dig up if Jack's answer didn't help.

Fran, check this out, Around the Sims 3/Help .

Or you can just bypass the whole launcher thing and use Delphy's extractor and turn them into .packages and put them into your mods folder.

The Delphy's extractor is a good option but i find it a pain when wanting to take thing out and is slows thing down to unless you have lots of Ram like myself. :) XX
