Honestly, it didn't need a translation. Anyone who couldn't understand it was incapable of providing it anyway.

I was just getting a chuckle out of the possibility that you simply refused to host an Evil Mac in your home.

Even if it were a gift.

It's less a refusal to own one due to some belief that an inert piece of hardware is "evil" than it is a simple unwillingness to pay a premium merely for pretentiousness. They're physically the same hardware. If you can find me a place where I can get a Mac cheaper than I can get a PC of comparable specs, then I shall consider getting one the next time I acquire a new computer. Otherwise, I am simply unwilling to pay extra for a pretentious plastic logo.

While also loosing the ability to upgrade or repair it yourself.
For a tinkerer like me, *that* is what make them evil.

I downloaded this but I can't get my simfiles apart from some nor packages into the game? The launcher informs me every time I open it and download them that they've been successfully added into the game but they're not there. After I go to launcher again, it shows them as not installed. So, how do I get my downloads back into the game?

...What?

Download files, decrapify them as instructed in the first post, then install.

What I meant was that I have downloaded the sim3 files ages ago, and they've worked in a game before. Now that I've decrapified all of them and installed, only couple actually came to game, some even refused to be installed. The rest told me that they'd been installed to the game but they didn't show up. And none of the packages came back to the game.

If your downloads don't work, then let your sims eat cake!


Anyway, if as you say your downloads worked previously, why decrap?  Did you happen to keep a backup of your downloads prior to decrapifying?  If so, try installing those originals instead. If that works, you can blame the decrapifier.  If not, the problem exists elsewhere.

I've done just about everything. The Renaissance Faire still has treadmills instead of archery.  Angry I have all the fixes in my mods folder and the ccmerged in my DCBackups folder. Waaaat gives.

Is there source code? I was going to compile it myself for FreeBSD 64-bit.

I could try to find all the pieces, but given that it is wired together out of the pieces of 4 different unrelated projects symlinked across different computers, some of which no longer exist, something will probably be missing, and all of it is completely illegible unless you really enjoy code written as an exercise in being horrible. You sure you want it?

Actually, I'm not sure I can find all of it. Some of that was part of the PMBD servers, which definitely aren't around anymore and have been archived in some giant tgz file that is impractical to open as there is not enough space on anything but a replacement server to unpack it.

Yeah, I'm fine with horrible/incomplete source code.
Also, you don't need to extract entire archives, you could do this:
List the contents and find the file you want:
tar -ztvf file.tar.gz
Now extract that file:
tar -zxvf file.tar.gz nameoffileintargz

Huh. That works? I'll take a look and see if I can find the relevant files, then.

Oh, you're still around. I thought you might have died. Yeah, I'll get it for you.

Enjoy. Or not. I did warn you it was horrible. But it compiles.

Okay, that code is real ugly, you should be in the International Obfuscated C Code Contest :-)
But I ran that code through clang-format, and all is fine, except for the escape-coded strings, lol

This code is remarkably readable. Not sure this is worthy of the label "exercise in horribleness." You could do better, Pescado. Why are there line breaks, for example?

Hello.
It's been a while since I played the sims, I've got a problem decrapping store content...
I throw the s3pack into the s3rc.exe and get the message that it couldn't open the s3pack as writable.
Is this a known issue? I couldn't google up anything useful with that message.

All I can say is that mine still works fine. Try another .sims3pack or re-download the recompressor.

Couldn't open as writable means that something was preventing the program from writing the output data, probably file permissions or failure to close something that had the file open.

Bug report:

I've got a 1.3GB TravelDB.package file from a non-awesome save.  I'm running s3rc from the command line with no arguments.

It segfaults with no other message after a minute or so.  It does the same with -r, as well as -s.  It works with -fD.

When run from cmd instead of bash, I get "An unhandled win32 exception occurred in s3rd.exe [4920]" and a prompt to debug in Visual Studio.  Attempting to debug fails, with "not enough storage is available."  I'm assuming it's running out of memory, but I don't do Windows so I don't know what that looks like on here.  I'd try to compile it with 64 bit support, but again, I don't do Windows and my last attempt at trying to do something like that ended in a broken executable, a headache, and a few hours of my life I'll never get back.

The file does not change (tested with cmp from cygwin).

I opened file file with s3pe and it's apparently mostly images, with some UNKN and SIME tags in there as well.

Not a huge deal, as I'm going to be starting a new Sims 3 tree for playing with AM, but figured I'd pass it along.

s3pe opens the file just fine.  Any way to shrink/compress the file using that or some other tool?

Running out of memory seems like a likely problem, given that your thing is 1.3 GB, and would inflate even more uncompressed. How the fuck did you get it to be that enormous?

And yes, the file won't change because it never gets to the part where it writes out a temp file to overwrite the old one with. At this point the most drastic thing I could suggest is simply burninating the entire file with fire. Because honestly, I'm not sure what it really does, anyway. Just be sure you back things up before trying this to see if anything explodes.
