UPDATES
*February 23, 2010 : This isn't really an update, just uploaded an older test version of the config file in the zip the first time, doesn't change anything to the program, just enables the warning for the hotkeys and removed test hotkeys.
*February 23, 2010 : Very quick after the last one: I just noticed something that could be really annoying, if you click cancel after editing the .EXE location, it didn't respond to the OK button in the options screen, but I fixed it.
*February 24, 2010 : Yet another update, a minor one. This time because of an edit in the recommended hotkey screen. Under "Also recommended" it said: "Numpad0 - Numpad9" and "0 - 9", but I discovered that it could be very annoying if you had assigned a hotkey to "Numpad1" or "Numpad2" etc. or to "1" or "2" etc., because I use them to set the speed of the game, so I changed it to "Numpad5 - Numpad9" and "5 - 9".
*March 6, 2010 : This time, I added three more spaces for hotkeys and cheats, on request of Winterhart. I also made a minor change in the "recommended hotkeys" screen.
*March 6, 2010 : IMPORTANT UPDATE! Last update, I messed up something in the program, with the tree new spaces, but that fixed now.
*March 8, 2010 : I'm terribly sorry for the last three updates. I forgot some things in the program, but i think it's fixed now. I hope not too many people experienced problems, and I strongly recommend you to download te latest update!

Hi everyone,

I'm new here, and this is my first upload. I made this program because I got tired of entering the cheats I use very often, so this is a program to assign hotkeys to cheats.

I just noticed that Random667 has the same kind of program, but I still want to upload it, so it can be tested, and maybe used by some people.

It's a very easy to use program. You can assign hotkeys to cheats, and easily change the hotkeys. There's also a button to launch the Sims 3. I directed it to the usual Sims 3 file (TS3.exe) but you can change it in the options screen to another directory, or if you have Worldadventures, you can direct it to that one. Also, if you want the launcher to appear first, you can direct it to the Sims3Launcher.exe.

I hope you'll enjoy my program and help me to improve it.

Greetz,
K1ll3RM1CK


P.S.: I got a lot of questions about how it exactly works, so I decided to make a smal user guide:


*Instructions

1. Download and unzip all files.

2. You can start the program now with the "K1ll3RM1CK's Cheat Utility.exe" file. If you like, make a shortcut on your desktop to the "K1ll3RM1CK's Cheat Utility.exe" file.

3. Go to the options screen

4a. If you like to run the game with the button in the main screen, click the ".EXE location" button, and enter the full path of your current game (if you only have the basic game, select that one. If you have world adventures, select that one, etc.) *Note: It's not necessary, you can also run the game with your normal shortcut, and even start the cheat utility while the game is running.

4b. Add or change a hotkey in the list. Look under the recommended hotkey section for what hotkeys you can use.

5. Add or change a cheat behind your hotkey.

6. Pres OK, then the changes will be applied.

7. Run the game (if not already running)

8. Press the hotkey you assigned.

9. That's it! You can assignt more hotkeys and cheats if you like, doesn't matter if the game is already running, just repeat some of the previous steps.

10. If you have any further questions, don't be afraid to just send me a PM or comment

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

do you have to have the cheat utility running or can you close it and play sims 3 w/the cheats?

You can close the cheat utility, it's not necessary to have it running, it just enters the cheats for you. You can also start it while the game is running, the button to run the game is just so you can start them both quickly after each other, and to keep your desktop clean


Also, to anyone who downloaded it before the last update and reads this, you should download the newer version, or just remember not to use "1 - 4" and "Numpad1 - Numpad4".

Very awesome, Thank you :-) I just am wondering how do I add any num pads cheats? I opened the Config.kmf and I dont see where to add cheats for it only for the "F" keys, or can't we use the num pad?
Sorry if this is a silly question I'm just at a lost.

It isn't a silly question But there's no need to open the config file, you can just go to the options screen, and in one of the fields under hotkey, for example enter: Numpad5. Should work like that. It's also in the "Recommended hotkey" screen. You can view that by clicking the "Recommended hotkey" button in the options screen.

Hello Thank you for this useful tool, but I was wondering how is it activated?

Ctrl+Shift+C then F4-12?
or just press F4-12?

Just press F4 - F12, pressing Ctrl+Shift+C is not necessary, but if you already pressed it and afterwards press F4 or something, it works fine.

By the way, you can use "F1 - F12", not just "F4 - F12", take a look in the recommended hotkey screen. You can acces it through a button in the options screen.

Thanks so much!!! Random's Cheater only allows the Function Keys, but the game uses some of them also. F1 is Live mode, F2 is Buy, F3 is Build and F10 hides or shows User Interface. Your cheater is perfect for me! I love all the choices.

I didn't know about the function keys that are used for live/buy/build mode and show/hide user interface, I wil put it in the recommended hotkey screen for the next update, thanks And I'm glad to hear you appreciate my program

A great help with the cheats. Thank you very much for sharing this with us. Please can you update it to work with the High-End Loft Stuff Pack. It won't accept the path to the .exe for HELs. Thanks in advance.
Kind regards

Have you tried to replace the whole path? You have to replace the first part too I think, I have 64-bit windows 7, and the program files are different than the 32-bit windows most people have. If you've tried it, I'd like to hear from you

#17 Old 26th Feb 2010 at 4:54 PM
My PC also runs on Windows 7 64-bit. I have replaced the whole path, tried it several times, but still gets the same message. Here is the path that I use: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 High-End Loft Stuff\Game\Bin\TS3SP01.exe and this is the message I get: Wrong file path! I would really appreciate it if you could help me solve this problem. I HATE typing the cheats every time. Is there anything I can do to try and solve the problem from my side? Please let me know.

I'm Sorry, but i really don't know what's wrong I've got HELs too, and for me it works fine. The only thing that could be a problem is that it takes too long for your PC to start the sims. But it's not really necessary to run the Sims with the utility, you can run the sims from a normal shortcut, and still use the program for the hotkeys. Hope it works, let me know

Your suggestion of running the sims from a normal shortcut and still use the cheater's hotkeys in the game did not work for me. After trying all sorts of ways to get the cheater working for me without success, I finally solved the problem. The cheater is now working fine. The problem was that I was running the sims as an administrator, the moment I unchecked the box "Run as administrator" the problem was solved. Who would have thought that a tiny check mark would be the problem. Thank you for this great utility and for all your help.
Kind regards

It may be because of the language, or the keyboard layout, I made it for keyboard layout "US international, I think that's the problem, otherwise I haven't got a clue. Sorry
Edit: maybe you can change your keyboard layout in the configuration screen and try if it works.

It stopped working for me, I press K1ll3RM1CK's Cheat Utility and it doesn't open any more, which is weird, because it worked yesterday. Any thoughts? I tried restarting my computer, but nothing..

This is what I see:


But the program itself doesn't open.

Thanks,
