    I’ve downloaded and installed it and apart from being incompatible with mods it works fine.

    So far I’ve noticed:
    Age Stage sliders now in options
    Memories System added.
    Game seems smoother and more responsive.

  2. tickleonthetum says:

    As far as I can tell it works correctly. I have everything up to and including Outdoor Stuff installed and the game is working fine.

  3. nasos95 says:

    because if it is retail everything’s ok (Outdoor Stuff)
    but if u have it cracked, I guess you are using a MiniImage and you mount it by DAEMON Tools ? :/

  4. Spon1Player says:

    Probably nothing much has been fixed – especially since we had our last patch in Feb, and that was appauling.

  5. nasos95 says:

    hm…i’m 100% sure, retail or cracked doesn’t play a role… but having a mini-image of the disc is a MUST for those with a cracked version of the expansion/stuff packs :)

  6. w3by says:

    Since the patch isn’t officially out yet, I don’t think the new crack is out yet, so people with a pirated copy will have to wait until it becomes available.
    But since I’m using an original copy, I can’t say for sure ;)

  7. tickleonthetum says:

    The patch does _NOT_ fix the problem where outdoor lights only illuminate the ground floor walls of a building…

  8. None says:

    Britney, this bug: “After sims sleeping in beds gets fully rested moodlet, their mood goes low and stay miserable, all the gaming time…”

  9. Joel says:

    Yep, all works. Has Body Hair, Memories, Dates, the new slider for how long each age lasts and the Buy Mode filter to only show specific items to each EP or whatever.

  10. Michael says:

    The Launcher do not ask me to update yet. I have the Late Night installed(no updates for that version), so will wait until Generations arrives to update it.

  11. Kiwi_tea says:

    First new bug and it’s a biggie: The camera skill from WA is 100% broken. Now, this could be because there will be a WA patch yet, alongside the basegame one we currently have.

  12. joe says:

    my game is orginal, i do not have generations , i could not install this update. my game is up to date. it gives not file found error. it does not install it even so, i can not open game after i try to install this update. i reinstall my game now

  13. doodlesam says:

    Patch installed fine. One side effect though, 3booter doesn’t work. Meaning frames per second can no longer be limited by a third party tool. I’m getting up to 2500 fps. Dissapointed in EA.

  14. 4thefun says:

    Everything works fine for me but I read on the forums that it’s not safe to install if you have more than the base game. Is there a chance there’s going to be difference between what you are offering here and what we will get when the actual patch is released? Or will it all be the same?

  15. Allison says:

    Every time I load up my game it crashes. I removed all of my CC. hmm. Not sure what I should do. I’ve tried a few different things with no luck. I really don’t want to reinstall it.

  16. absolut says:

    working good , i do install genereation on sims 3 version 1.19 when update goes to version 1.21.123.011002 , then install done i go in ISO cd crack folder copy to files and put files in THE SIMS 3 not in generation dir , when run exe from generation bin or destop , sorry for my english and say word crack very sorry

  17. Allison says:

    I got it working. I used the crash analizer which told it was a dep problem. so using the large address aware program I found out that there is no ts3.exefor ambitions and high end. So I reinstalled those packs and then patched them and now I’m good. I just had to remove some of my hacks.

    Does anyone know is Awesome mod still works with this patch?

  18. Abnest says:

    Do graczy z Polski.

    Nie ściągajcie tej łaty! Nie będzie można grać! Nie będzie można włączyć gry! Powodować to będzie nie przewidziane błędy! Nie ściągać, nie instalować! Jeśli ją pobraliście zróbcie reinstalkę! I czekajcie na oficjalną łatę!

  19. I went to install generations, but it said my game needed updating, and to use the laubcher to update. My launcher however said there were no updates available… so I came here. Wil try this and then hope Generations installs. Ridiculous the hoops we have to jump through…. Will there even BE updates for the SPs and other Expansions?

  20. Hana says:

    I’m having the same issue as JRON7667. I’d be interested to know if downloading this patch version (assuming it’s still unofficial?) solved the problem or if it would be more prudent to wait out EA and see if it shows up in the Launcher eventually.

  21. Peachy146 says:

    I just logged off with EA support and they said it’s a known issue and referred me to the forums, which are down. So they really don’t know what’s going on.

  22. Hana says:

    They have no clue what’s going on. I just got off with support as well and they told me the same thing basically. Except they added repeatedly that there was ‘no official information’ as to a time estimate for when the issue would be resolved or what was causing it and so on.

  23. Sorin says:

    Make your own FPS limiter. You need Java installed to run this.
    -download http://www.mediafire.com/?2zzggw2zmym.
    -extract archive into separate folder
    -run FPS_Limiter_GUI.jar from that folder
    -make sure to have D3D9 selected
    -click “search executable” and select TS3W.exe from game\bin from the base game
    -click “create bat”
    -now you have to copy the next files directly into the base game install dir. (not game\bin): FPS_Limiter, HookHelper.dll, Limiter_D3D9.dll and TS3W.exe.limited.bat
    -you will run generations with TS3W.exe.limited.bat

  24. Wendy says:

    Installing same patch Danielle is, will tell you if it works. I dont understand why EA releases Generations without making sure people will be able to download it first.

  25. Bruce says:

    Incremental is installing one patch before the other. Cumulative updates it to the newest version without all of the other updates. :)

  26. Tyler says:

    Well just downloaded the patch from the link Danielle posted and it worked thabnk god lol. Well now to download Geerations wish me luck ;)

  27. Laith says:

    Hey I found this statement on the official website:

    “PC/Mac Game Update for 1.22 – Mac ONLY Game Update for 2.16/3.12/4.9/5.7/6.4/7.2/8.0″

    Does that mean that there won’t be EP & SP updates for PC and they’re not needed???? This is strange @_@

  28. secretsim says:

    I installed the patch and installed Generations. Loads fine but two minutes in, it shuts down with the messagE: “Sims 3 has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working. Windows will notify you if a solution is found.”

    Anyone else get this?

  29. Laith says:

    @Santi:

    Save it anywhere you want, you have to run it in order to install, it’ll update your base game once you run it…..

    JUST make sure that you follow all the steps of installing a patch :)

  30. if anyone is having game freezes/crashes after installing the patch with or without having Generations installed, uncheck/untick “Memory Notifications”. That feature is glitched also, try not to share memories until this bug is fixed.

  31. Sophh!! says:

    Hi everyone I would like to know if the sims 3 generations is working yet?
    I have seen on numerous websites that people are very angry with EA.
    Is this true?
    and does anybody know when it will be fixed?
    Because it comes out on friday where I am living.
    and I REALLY was looking forward to this,please get back as soon as possible,Thankyou<3

    • Judhudson says:

      I’m so confused on this – are there patch links for the other versions? I can’t seem to find them and I’d love to get the patches added to the site – anyone know if they released a patch only for the base game, or are there other links out there for the various other games?

  32. This sucks says:

    I, like many others, want to know if there will be a patch for the individual EPs and SPs.

    Why EA hasn’t officially told us yet is beyond me. Very bad business.

    Also, I think it’s really shitty that a SimGuru released a download link to a MANUAL cumulative patch that is 644 MB. That is way too large and some of us are on 5 GB bandwidth limits and could never download something that extreme. 644 MB is almost the size of a freaking movie. Also, there are other people out there who aren’t on bandwidth caps, but they do have slow or spotty connections.

  33. This sucks says:

    Also, it would be nice if they told us if they were releasing an incremental patch from 1.19 to 1.22. I’m assuming 1.21 is Generations and not everyone has that.

    If they do not release a 1.19-1.22 incremental, then I will be screwed for previously mentioned reasons and EA will CERTAINLY get a very nasty call from me if they do. If you’re going to make it nearly impossible for me to play your game, then I’m not going to waste anymore money on expansions.

  34. tickleonthetum says:

    The patch is now officially up at TheSims3.com:

    The link is invalid. I checked the Launcher and click on Game Updates, but nothing yet.

    The last update was for Late Night, I got few months ago. It is 6.2.4.010001. I am getting Generations today, but prefer to wait for Launcher to ask me to update rather than the link.

  36. Sheryl says:

    I’m on Mac and I just installed the newest patch. Now my game doesn’t even open. I took out all the custom contents and still the same thing happens.

    I have till Late Night. I just click on the LN icon then the original Sims 3 logo appears and disappears without the launcher launching. I’m getting pretty frustrated. D:

  37. Santi says:

    I just can’t find the patch for Late Night! I checked out The Sims Wiki’s article about the patch, and it marks that the patch is available only for Base Game and those with Outdoor Living, so after reading that, I didn’t wanted to use the link. I don’t know if those with an EP need or not the patch. It’s very annoying, as I already bought Generations, but I don’t know if I can already install the pack, or waiting until EA fix the issue and I could then download the patch from the launcher.

    Spon1Player:

    “Additional Bug Fixes and Polishing” could just mean re-arranging code :P

    As a developer, this is just like I am used to say about some companies.
    Companies which do not follow a project modelling model the way it is meant to do, happens that. Poor management.

    Basically the advancements in the game system/coding wasn’t documented properly or then it is not something they would like to claim that is “properly” fixed or a feature that is “shiny” enough to enter in the patch change log.
    As almost every change log many of the changes ends with a exclamation which just give emphasis of “look what we did! wow”

    Although some past patches used to at least document of what was made, or that we can at least think that it was…
    And here I stood in thinking that such big company as EA would have a better management, after I saw The Sims 3 development team work, I left out that idea alone.

    The same thing is happening to me!! I also have a mac and after I install this latest patch, it won’t open for me anymore. I wondered if it had something to do with the memory space on my computer or with the CC I have, but I’ve uninstalled it and my game three times now. I think I’ll just keep refusing the update until EA gets it fixed!!

    Me too! I KNEW I shouldn’t have updated!! Now I can’t even play!

  41. louiechue says:

    I tried updating frm the sims3 launcher, and it said that my game is up to date but it says that my base game is incompatible with the current expansion pack.
    This is the second time this has happened to me and I don’t want to reinstall the entire game again. Could someone explain to me how I can install the patches from the links given above because I don’t have a clue how to :(

    I’m using windows vista btw.

    First, my sims couldn’t communicate and now the game crashes. I downloaded Danielle’s link but it said that my game is already up to date, and it still crashes. Can someone help me? :(
