Mkay, then - pictorial confirmation of EIG working with BG 1.29 and CAW 1.13.7 only installed - per my setting last time. All is good and running!
I didn't test with addons. If needed, I'll do it next week after the upcoming patch, next addon and CAW version is out...
Thanks for all the help, yeah I know I've just been trying not to break anything. but I'm giving up, I'll be out of school soon and won't have time anymore, so I'm gonna give my games to one of my brothers let them mess with it.
Thanks for trying though.
My best idea ever: combine my love for Egypt with my love of sims
Ella, should we close this thread altogether? Not much point having this, since general problems and patching/ updating are dealt with in the other thread.
As discussed with simsample, we were gonna wait until the next patch before making any decisions on locking this thread.
But, since today's patch 1.31 arrived, and with CAW still not updated, this workaround is still needed. I'll be on the lookout for the next CAW version in the coming days until after Showtime is released...
The way I'm reading this situation is : as long as EA remembers to release a CAW version whose CompatVersion matches the patch's Level No (the Level Column in the Patch_Table Wiki), this workaround is not needed. But for the interim until such new CAW updates are released, this workaround is still applicable (I just tested with patch 1.31 (level 15) and CAW 1.13.7 (CompatVersion 14) - Default.ini needed tweaking).
So, in summary, how to know which situation applies? Read Game Help:Patch_Tablewiki. If workaround needed for CAW, it would have the superscript as indicated.
Oh right so sorry- I'm pretty useless with these kind of things :S
Late night stuff is 6.0.81, Highend loft stuff 3.0.38, Ambitions 4.0.87, World Adventures 2.0.86, base game 1.29.55, pets 10.0.96, generations 8.0.152 and fast lane stuff at 5.0.44 If that's any help. Thanks so much
For me the "CAW and Sims 3 Version Mismatch Work-Around" has helped to a limited extent, as it now doesn't come up with any error messages. CAW now just appears briefly but will not load, I've tried "Run as administrator", but that just has the same effect of not loading. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I don't think I have a version mis-match error, I've made the CAW executable Large Address Aware, I've got the corresponding patch level and I've removed in-game CC, I think I've cleared the caches as specified, I used The Sims 3 Dashboard. But it still only appears briefly before disappearing again. Is there anything else I could try not specified in the previously mentioned thread.
Well it didn't work with the CAW 1.11.12 as that took me back to the mis-matching versions error. With the newest game update, will that effect any CC.? It takes forever to download and update which is why I have been putting it off, The internet in my village can be incredibly slow, and that's just when it's working. Should I update my game as well?
