The Sims 3 won't start

Post by Quicksken on Mon 04 Aug 2014, 00:12

Hello,

I keep getting ''Initialisatie van service is mislukt (0x024e424f)'' when i try to run the Sims 3. During my first try the game crashed and i've been getting this message ever since although I re-installed twice, the last time using this:  https://games4theworld.forumotion.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly and your crack. Now i'm just tired and very much annoyed... I would be very grateful if somebody could tell me what I'm still not seeing so that I can finally play. I've installed it before om my last desktop and it worked like a charm, but just can't get it to work here.

Hello,


Do you actually have at least one of the expansions that are mentione in step #1 of the guide, you linked too ? Next, are you using any mods ? 

Most importantly, you really need to do thes teps from #2 to #4 there, correctly. And please ignore the instructions inside the Ultimate fix; you don't need most of the stuff there. Again, step #4 clearly says that you ONLY need the #crack-folder, and nothing else.

Good luck, and do post back about your progress !


P.S. Experience shows that in almost all cases like these people did something wrong, either during patching and/or the cracking of the game. So there aren't many other explanations beyond that.
