Make sure you read every step, this cheat can hose your saves!!! Make sure you back everything up before you do anything!!! If you think you can do this all by your self.. Then go right ahead and try it. If you mess something up, you will only have yourself to blame. I am sorry, but I can't risk this cheating this program, I have tried for a while to make it safe for people to play the game. I have seen people getting so many problems, it is not worth it for me to give you the cheats, if you mess up your saves, or your sims quit working. So make sure you go in and review your saves more often than you have to. This tutorial will help you!!! Before we begin, download the unofficial patch to patch the game that will be provided in the guide. Download this, it is called "The Sims 3 Ultimate Fix" or something like that, I forgot the exact name for it. Google it.
Now before we begin, take a minute to open the patches you downloaded to patch the game you just downloaded and opened. I am sorry, going to have to ask you too look and see how to do this. Basically, you have to make a new folder. Now take the patch you did not open and extract it to the sims folder on the hard drive. Make sure that folder is not read-notepad and the sims folder you should be using is the Sims 3 folder you downloaded and opened. If you did not open the patch, just put it in, save it and exit out of that folder.
Now you are going to be fixing the game, and not crashing. When you are done, it will be a correct version of the game with no problems and you can start playing The Sims 3 Base Game again. Do you understand???
Now, you are going to manually complete the game. This will copy the patch that you just downloaded from the console file and installed to the base game folder, making it the new version. Then you will have to make a new folder called "patches".
