Game Launcher

Introduction

The Sims 3 game launcher acts as your central hub for most of what goes on in the game. Much like the game’s official website, here you can see many of the latest official items available, ones that you have downloaded, and movies and screenshots that you have captured during the game.


The game launcher houses all your Sims 3 downloads (the official ones!)

Recording Video and Screenshots

The Sims 3 includes a powerful video recording suite, and a more ordinary image capture facility. To capture video, press V during play or click the camera icon. You can in fact activate the capture while in open play and then go into the Create a Sim or Edit Town modes with the movie still recording – so there is a lot of possibilities open to you. Ensure that you peruse the Video Capture options menu to ensure that the video will be suitably compressed and that you are able to record for long enough.

Screenshots are more simple, and you can capture them with or without the game’s interface overlaid.

When you have a collection of assets taken from the game, they can then be accessed from the Sims 3 Game Launcher, from the Sims 3 folder, or on TheSims3.com website, when creating a story or video.


Use the Game Launcher to view and upload all your recorded video and images from The Sims 3.

Installing Official Items

Items will install automatically once downloaded from TheSims3.com – or when double-clicked if saved to a location on your computer. The Sims 3 Game Launcher will open and a progress bar will be shown. Once it completes, the item is then in the game and ready for use!

I am able to log into "Origin", but then I get to the game Launcher I'm asked to sign in again. I used the same ID and Password... the system says the email address and password does not match.

Guest

If you go to the exchange on the sims 3 website and select something to download, the launcher will come up and say that there is a new update available. After the update it should work normally, at least this is what happened for me.

Guest

You can access your Sims game without using the game launcher. all you have to do is: go to Computer, local disc C, program files (you may need to unlock these), Electronic Arts, The Sims 3, game, bin, TS3.......You can then just click and drag a copy onto your desktop, start menu or task bar.
