Wrong manual Patch

Please login or register. Read times. Hello, I was running Sims 3 perfectly fine on my Mac, I added some more expansion and stuff packs, and I started to get the 'unknown error occurred' message. I tried uninstalling just the new packs, but still no different. I then tried uninstalling everything plus the additional files as explained in various forums , and then reinstalling in the correct order, letting each pack update before installing the next, but still the same issues.

I then installed world adventures, still working, then high end and still working.

Then after ambitions the error started, I uninstalled ambitions, but which ever pack I tried next, the error still came up I tried 16 of them! I have spent days on this, looking through forums and trying everything I've seen. If anyone has any suggestions of anything else that I could try, I would greatly appreciate it?

Sims3 Mac OS Unknown Error Fix for Multiple Expansions Packs

Thank you! I tried copying and replacing the folder in the launch game in case something had corrupted between them or something, tried to make a new alias folder icon, but when I try to launch through Master Suite I get the unknown error.

Different regions for the base game and world adventures

The game still launches from other icons though. Any thought? Thanks in advance for reading this, and for any help you may have! And for all you do in general, you are truly a lifesaver when it comes to trying to get my mac to play this game. Master Suite is NOT one of the ones affected.

I think you should completely uninstall and reinstall again. Is this a common problem?
