It all started two days ago when I decided to reinstall my computer fresh after 2 yrs. After backing up important info, I decide to upgrade to Windows 10 really fast (to get my free edition without the intention to use it). Then reformat my PC and reinstall windows 7.
So far so good..,until I attempt to install updates. Turns out the update team 'broke' windows updates for Windows 7 if you weren't already updated to a certain level. Meaning if you tried to install updates on a fresh windows 7 install, it wouldn't find any.
But of course I didn't know this at first and thought maybe my install didnt go right....so I reinstalled Windows 7...3 times.
Cellphone search to the rescue where I discover a hotfix for this issue - no less released the SAME day that I decided to install my computer (despite being a bug for nearly 1yr?!) SO if I had tried installing my computer 2 days earlier - well I'd have to install over 300 updates INDIVIDUALLY. One by one...yikes!
Talk about timing!
6 hours later...Windows 7 is fully installed and updated! All my background apps, ect installed!
Now its time to install my games - and first up is Sims 3!
So first I need to decide if I want to install the disc or digital version. Well i had the digital version before and liked the disc-less start and despite taking nearly 6hrs to download EVERY single expansion - I opt for it again.
All goes well...until I launch S3...things look different and I'm confused. I'm totally unaware of the new patch - a new patch which is LITERALLY released the same day I decided to reinstall my game.
Talk about timing!
Ok...doesn't look so bad at first...
Then...well see my thread about 3 reasons why you should avoid patch 1.69 lol...that says it all.
SO looks like I'm uninstalling Sims 3 now to degrade back to my disc version - BUT WAIT, the fun with patch 1.69 doesn't stop there!
OH NO - you see EVERY TIME I uninstall a sims 3 expansion due to this wonder patch - it loads the new S3 launcher EVER single time during the uninstall process. Why? I have no idea, to update it? I dunno because it doesnt do it for the stuff packs - just the expansions.
Man I LOVE patch 1.69!
Not only does it slow down your game, but it slows your uninstalling it too!
Up next - the two hour process of reinstalling the game from disc!
TLDR Avoid patch 1.69 at all costs! If I had tried to install Sims 3 two days ago would not have known this horror...except an issue with Windows 7 updates would have made nigh impossible...talk about timing!
