THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I wanted the speed fixes, so I went through the whole pain of unistalling everything and re-installing from scratch.

All went perfectly until I re-installed AwesomeMod.

Now the game goes through the intro and then gets to the loading screen and boom, crashes.

Take out AwesomeMod from the packages file, the game works perfectly again.

Obvious idiot wondering what I am doing wrong. And yes, I RTFM. Obviously I used AwesomeMod before, so I know how to install it properly.

That's a known but mysterious issue some of us have been having for a while. I noticed Pescado's cooked up this 3booter that gives the game a kick if it crashes; resuming the game automatically so we don't have to Wink

Does anyone know whether it's possible to get the patch without connecting my game machine to the internet?  My game machine hasn't had internet access since EA and Sony decided to start spying on me and destroying my hardware.  I'd prefer to download the patch and copy it over, but I can't see any way to do that.
Yes. What's your region version?
EN_US (00001)
Worldwide (00002)/Razor1911

Note that if you got the 632 patch, you have to reinstall now.

For the record, Mac version.

I'm having the same problem. When the loading screen comes up the cursor just twirls around and around, over and over, never getting to the Main Menu where you can choose a saved game. As soon as I remove Awesome.package from my mods folder, everything works fine.

I tried uninstalling and reverting back to 1.0.632.00002, but the problem affects that version now too.


Edit: Nevermind, I ended up getting it to work.

Did anyone else notice the announcement date of the patch? 6/15/09 (US-En), 2009-06-16 (Sweden).
It’s been in hiding for over a week!
News items are probably time stamped when uploaded so something made EA hide the news until release today.
They can’t fix a date on a news item, but we should trust their patch.

Declaring you're unable to spell is NOT an excuse. If you fail at spelling you may:

1) Learn how to spell.
2) Shut the fuck up.

No other options are acceptable, here.

I knew I was right to avoid that patch, don't fancy another 24 hours of downloading  Tongue

Reversing the 632 patch should be easy enough.

This is ALL the 632 patch did:

Default.ini - added "InstallationRequired = 0"
GraphicsRules.sgr - in the very last line with the #, changed "E?-Kad}" to "0bfffcc9753aabac325f".
skuversion.txt - changed "1.0.631.00002" to "1.0.632.00002".


Can anyone confirm if thiis works?  I've tried reverting the changes but it did not work.

I guess I am a lucky one. Finally! I got the patch downloaded, and everything seems to work fine. I have the AwesomeMod, censor patch, and teen woohoo mods install, so far AwesomeMod works, the censor remover is working, I'll have to wait until I can try the teen woohoo, but I get the feeling it will probably work too....


I should also mention, the speed inprovement is freaking awesome! I'll be able to get so much more done now....

I'd like it from Pes's mouth. Is the latest patch compatiable with AwesomeMod? I own the legit version so reinstalling is not a problem for me, but I'd still like to know if I NEED to play with or without AwesomeMod (specifically the no-DVD part)

Did you need to remove any mods or change anything prior to installing the patch?

Protip: always keep the original .iso download at least for a couple months. Backing up on media is best. Also keep copies of any files you've had to replace, like original camera files if you get a camera hack, or the original shaders file for the no-censor patch.

Is it safe to use AwesomeMod with this patch?
Probably not. We'll get back to you, I'm currently running it through patchutils.

Naw, I went ahead and installed the patch, with the mods present....and, the teen woohoo mod works too.

The Censor hack will prevent the patch to install if you have bought a legit copy, but I had to uninstall and reinstall to fix this, and I patched it and ran it fine, I had the Awesome mod in and I didn't crash at all, and I think I didn't put the dll in the bin from the file, but what dose the  .dll file do anyways? I couldn't tell you if it conflict with anything, but all the options in cheat menu was there.

The real nocensor.package does not prevent the patch from uninstalling. Modifying shaders is bad, mmmkay?

I need some clarification on

Quote
Allow NPC Work Performance Gain [Optional - Default: Enabled]
     Sims not part of the active household continue to gain work performance
     for going to work, and can therefore be promoted.

Does this apply even with story progression off, or only when it's on?

EDIT: Additional dumbness. How/where is the XML file you have to edit/tweak. Are we referring to something locally or when you download the file?

I am going to wait to get the update until I know AwesomeMod works with it. I don't find any point in updating since Pescado already fixed EA's game weeks ago.  Smiley
If it wasn't for Pescado fixing it, The Sims 3 wouldn't have been tolerable. This is my way of saying thank you Pescado!

New build up, patch integrated into build. If you don't have the patch, get it here:
EN_US (00001)
Worldwide (00002)/Razor1911
If you have some weird non-English-speaking version, substitute your appropriate regional numbers.

You lost me. So do we need to get the patch in order to use the latest build, or is the patch included in the latest build?

You need to get and install the patch, then use the latest awesomemod, which is compatible with the patch.

Does the patch install clearly through or leave junk? Does it try to call home, or mess/move/delete up your downloads/saves? Should I backup?

It SHOULD install cleanly, but if you have a janky install from early pirated versions or early attempts at hacking the game, you may end up with a mangled directory. Works fine on Razor, though.

Does it try to call home, or mess/move/delete up your downloads/saves? Should I backup?
No, but it never hurts.
