Just installed World Adventures, but won’t auto-patch
« on: November 24, 2012, 02:10:47 PM »
I just ran across this issue.
I went through the big sales on Steam and Origin, getting World Adventures from Steam and Supernatural from Origin. I downloaded both on Origin, where I already had Ambitions, Late Night, Generations, and Pets installed. Once WA had finished installing, I launched the game without any problems. I later went to change the allocated memory for applications in my OS because Windows XP couldn’t handle the game where it was. After Supernatural finished and I re-booted the machine, it no longer launched and gave a vague error message. Opening the Crash Log Analyzer, it said World Adventures and Ambitions had updates available. I had never run into this issue with Ambitions. I can’t get it to patch automatically and I can’t seem to find a way to manually patch it. If I have to reinstall then I’m screwed, everything I have was digitally downloaded. I thought I had remembered seeing something on here but I can no longer find it, so I hope there’s a solution other than reinstalling.

MoonsareBlue gave a great tutorial on how to patch pre-generations games.  You can find it here.

Oh, so that’s where it was! I guess I was thrown off because of the title, lol.

I shall be fixing that now. I’d left my computer on overnight so it could download (we really need more bandwidth) and I’m really anxious!
