These files may conflict with future installations. Bluebell Flora's website provides a guide on how to do this: cleanly uninstalling, install the base game and patch it up to date.If you cannot update via the Launcher, download and apply the latest cumulative manual patch (called the superpatch) for Mac. Then install any EPs and SPs that you own, in order of release date.For Mac simmers having this problem, please see the first post of the main Mac help thread: Try the tips under 'primary things to try first'.
I am re-installing & re-downloading the game now, but it might happen again. Now uninstall everything Sims 3 (doing a back-up before this is pretty imperative! Start installing again This fixed the problem for me, I hope it does for you too!
Please help - I know this has happened to a LOT of people. Thanks Amber8900mileyhappy: Hi amber-- So this is a really common issue for Mac people, however it doesn't usually happen when the game first loads; I've only had that happen to me once and the next I opened it, it was fine. Hi, I recently re-installed origin and redownloaded & reinstalled both games, and they worked PERFECTLY! If anyone has this problem, try this suggestion out ~ hope it helps you, too!
Hi I downloaded & installed The Sims 3 downloadable version onto my MAC computer.
After installing, I clicked on the game & as it opened, it said "Unknown Error Occurred." I tried deleting files in my library, but there were none suitable to delete.
Once the install has finished, your system will be at whatever level the disk you have is.
So if your Install DVD/CD disk is 10.5.0, that's what version of OS will be on your Mac.
However, there are rare cases after running an installer where data goes missing.
Making a backup is always advised when updating software.
For most people, it happens after a little while of play. Did you get any errors during installation and/or did you already add mods or any custom content? You're gonna see a thing-a-ma-bob that says "Recovery HD"3. If not - you can even talk to a game advisor or an expert, they really are helpful!
I have this problem everytime I install an Expansion pack. mileyhappy: Running on mac mountain lion 10.8.4ERASE ALL THE SIMS 3 FROM YOUR COMPUTER AS MUCH AS YOU CAN FIND AND EMPTY THE TRASH there are two ways this may work: so ive had this problem for two days straight I've gotten errors from unknown error occurred to the icon just disappearing.
I Launch the game from the thumb drive and its working for me! If this was a PC problem they'd have it fixed in a couple days but because it's a Mac problem it gets set on the back shelf until someone feels like dealing with it.
