My base game won't even open. I keep getting the unknown error message. I'm waiting for the base game to download right now

Ok. Before reinstalling it make sure you have completely removed all traces of the previous install -

Then reinstall the base game and apply the manual 1.67 patch. Then install Ambitions. Apply the fix to get it to show up in the Launcher then Corey's fix Standard smile

Using CC/Mods is at your own risk, EA are not responsible for making the game compatible with 3rd party content, the creator is.
