This user has the following games installed:

Sims 3
Can't find the \game\bin\ Folder
I'm trying to get the 'd3dx9_31dll' file into the \Game\Bin\ folder for my game as said to do here (http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php...g_Package_Files)

BUT, I can't find that folder in my 'The sims 3' folder,






I would be so happy if someone could help me. And I only have the base of TS3.

You won't find \game\bin\ in your documents folder.
You will find it where the Sims 3 was Installed.
(For Example):
c:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\the sims 3

(1) a text readable file named Resource.cfg and
(2) a folder named Mods containing a sub-folder named Packages;
to be placed in the \Game\Bin\ folder is:
(3) a d3dx9_31.dll file specially modified to work with The Sims 3.
This .dll file is only required if you want to use a core mod like Awesomemod, Gabriel mod, etc.
Note that you can only have one core mod in your game.

Yes, that's where they should be going. May I direct you to Game Help:Installing Sims 3 Package Files

Yes, but you'll want to drop the .package files in the 'Mods' folder: as per the GameHelp link:

(2) a folder named Mods containing a sub-folder named Packages; (this is under the game's root directory ->
Don't put them in: c:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\the sims 3
Put them Here: c:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\the sims 3\mods\packages
[You will have to create those directories, as they do not exist]
)
