Question The Sims Superstar Backup, apply ppf??

sponsored links

 
Hi, I have been having trouble with getting my Sims Superstar back up to start up, it crashes on the loading page. I have now downloaded the new Devience crack-fix that comes with three files, ApplyPPF3.exe, dev-sscf.ppf, and sims.exe. Now I've heard that in order to get the back up working, you need to patch the ISO or BIN file. How do I patch this? I don't see any file in the ISO that has a .ppf in the name. Has anyone patched this and got it working? If so how do you do it? What do I use these three files for? Has anyone used the Devience crack-fix? What do I do with this ppf file?

All the ppf does is replace the crack on the disc, if you have already tried the sims.exe that you got with the ppf and it didn't work then there really is no point having it on the disc is there?

Use ApplyPPF3.exe to patch the BIN with dev-sscf.ppf.

But how do I actually make ApplyPPF3.exe apply the ppf? Do I have to drag the cd image over the program to apply it because everyime I run the program nothing comes up, a window flashes on the desktop for a split second.

That is because it is a commandline based program.. You need to run it from a command prompt.

You could also try PPF-O-Matic;

[i]PPF-O-Matic is a GUI (Graphics User Interface) for our very own PPF (PlayStation Patch File) system. It was created after having received thousands (!) of requests as it seems that typing in a simple line in MS-Dos is too hard for today's computer kid generation.[/i]
