The Sims 3 - First Patch Available!

If you have your install of The Sims 3 set to automatically upgrade, you do not need me to tell you that this is out. The first patch which upgrades The Sims 3 to version 1.2.7 is available. This is supposed to fix the following.

It fixes a bug with disabling storylines, improves the higher speed settings, sorts out a music issue and clears up a few other issues that caused the game to lock. Full details of what this patch intends to do can be found here.

Actually, from my PC, The Sims Zone link really doesn't work - and the one posted by Neil Jones does. But, hey, it's not important: how hard is it to find the right link out there?

What I think can be useful info is that I could not install the patch until I removed the Uncensored patch I had installed. To do this, I had to copy the file Shaders_Win32.precomp from the game DVD back to the directory C:/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin

The correct link depends on the language you have the site in - if you have set your language of thesims3.com to English UK, then you'll indeed need Neil's link, otherwise (US anyway) the link in the news post is correct. So, one that hopefully works regardless which language you have set up:


Maybe superfluous, but it's always recommended to remove any custom hacks, patches etc. that overwrite original files before installing any official patch - or at least restore the original files. Then reinstall the hack/patch with a version that works with your game version afterwards. And of course, keep backups of original files for all files you change with hacks and custom patches.
