Patch Problems
« on: June 11, 2012, 01:02:04 AM »
Okay, so I decided to patch to 1.34. I went in to the launcher and tried to patch (from 1.33 to 1.34). Problem: I get a popup saying "Update Error: File Not Found".


I am trying to do this from Origin and the patch is about 133.4 MB. What am I doing wrong?


(This is only my second time, I think, patching via the launcher, I used to patch manually due to internet difficulties on my Simming laptop)

I had the same problem. Tried everything and in the end just had to apply the patch manually.

Thanks Lemon-pie and welcome to the forums. :)


Argh! I downloaded the incremental patch from MTS that was correct for my last measured (Late Night) game level. Again, the same error. :(

Have you tried super-patch? It's a bit heavy but it worked for me.

P.S. thanks for the welcome :)

Apparently several people have had this issue.
A thread on the official forums:

Crinrict has an excellent article about this bug on her website:

I still haven't patched to 1.34. I haven't felt like taking the risk yet.

For some reason the launcher on my laptop crashes (I think that part is an origin issue) when I try to install the update, so I think I need to download the manual incremental patch. Does anyone know what region Australia comes under for the patch? I've heard that you can get that error if you use the wrong region.

Okay, I'm currently redownloading the 1.34 patch from MTS, hopefully this will work. I checked and double checked my game version, so I am sure that this is right.
Fingers crossed.

Edit: Nope, didn't work.
Edit2: Okay, I'm currently downloading the Super Patch.
Edit3: After 10 minutes of downloading, it worked! Yay!
