Re: cannot redeem sims 3 code

★★★★ Novice

I have the same problem.

After barely being able to redeem the Sims 3 code from the Humble Bundle, I get the message that I should recieve my registration code through email. After the game is downloaded I cannot install it because it asks me for that registration code (NOT the redeem code, that worked) that I haven't got throught the email yet

 

What do I do Frown

I haven't received a 20 digit key either. Only the 16 digit key from humble bundle. I could add the game to Origin, but can't install it without a "registration key".

Same problem, successfully redeemed my code, told to download the game from my purchase history and it says I've not purchased anything. Tried using the key again and it says it has already been redeemed, but no game Confusedmileysad:

I have the same problem. (16 digit key from HB, installer wants 20 digit key) The support guy said to contact them again in 3-4 hours and that it's a temporary problem. Weird...

I replied to another post of the same topic, but I'm also having this issue. Very annoying, I want to play now!

You guys need to follow the instructions... -.-
I got everything working perfectly following the first instructions.   However, once you "redeem code" for the base Sims 3 game - you will eventually get an e-mail giving you a 20 digit code for the game.  Hope this helps... impatient people >.>

The code it gave me already said it had been redeem elsewhere. So, there goes that....

From the Sticky:

 

 

"Registering The Sims 3 game and Expansions/Stuff Packs to your Origin account

If you already own The Sims 3 or any of the Expansion/Stuff Packs, and wish to register them on your Origin account, please follow the steps below. Please note, these are 20 digit codes – if your code has 16 digits, it’s for bonus downloadable content. You can find instructions on how to register 16 digit codes in the next section of this article."

 

- codes for main game, which comes in with HB - 16 digits.

 

so my understanding in this problem is, EA failed to provide the Humble Team with Valid Install codes. Major Fail. What people are you hiring? srsly. not. ok. lucky that was a indeed very good deal. so if that gets fixed soon it's fine. kinda.
