Message

This game is set to use version 1.3.4. Maybe that version works with just this add on and the basegame installed, but it doesn't work with at least one of the other add ons I installed. I set it to 1.4.1 in my TS3 drive configuration and this works fine. So should probably use 1.4.1 by default.

Oh and I didn't test this modified installer in any way, I just saw that I could modify the version there and thought I'd do that too instead of just notifying you that it should use the newer version. But I assume it works like that.

Can you test it, please? Never assume in programming. :) It needs to be tested before you post it up:

I hoped someone else who would install The Sims anyway would maybe test it... those installations take quite some time and I first need a blank TS3 basegame to test it. But maybe I'll do it later. Promising nothing. It's a one line difference with no syntactical change, I wouldn''t even call that programming, that configuration. And it's tested in the sense that I tested that it does work with the version I specified in the script.

The script needs to be tested before it is officially updated in the repo. Your change is not just a syntax change. It completely changes the version of Wine used, and since you did not test the script, you cannot be certain that it works. We don't accept un-tested updates to scripts like this. If you are not willing or do not have the software to test the update, then it might be better if you posted in the forums with the update suggestion, instead of hoping that it works once people use it if it is accepted in the repo. :)
