  • Find the “setup.exe” file and double click on it to start installation as shown below.

  • OR Instead of double clicking it, It is better to right click on it and click on “Run as administrator”. This way, the game will start without any errors.

  • If you get a message popup like one below, Click on yes to continue installation.

  • When installation program starts, it will ask for your confirmation. As in the picture given below, You will have to click on “Next” to start installation.

  • Select the directory or drive or folder where you want to install the game. Select the folder by clicking on “Browse” button on the installer. Please select the folder where there is enough memory to install the game. Usually the required space is mentioned in the installer as shown below.

  • If it asks for the language to install the game, Select the language you wanna install the game in from step as shown below.

  • For my case, i have selected “English” because i only want game in “English” language. Select your desired language and click on “Next”.

  • Click on “Next” on the next screen as shown below.

  • Select on all the softwares to install them on your pc. Please know that these softwares are required to start the game successfully. If you skip even only single one of them, Game will not work. If you have already installed them, then in that case, you can uncheck them and click on “Install”.

  • After this, the installer will extract and install the game on your computer in your selected drive.. Wait for the installer to complete the setup.

  • Once done, Apply the crack and start the game.
  • The tutorial to apply crack is given below. Read this page to the end and follow every single step.

How to Apply Crack?

The games are protected with hard to bypass protections. So there is always need of a crack to bypass those protections.
Usually the crack files are included with the game iso or rar archives. The crack files are usually inside the folders named like Crack, PROPHET, SKIDROW, REDIST, RESOURCES, PATCH, FIX etc.

NOTE: You need to explore the Disk to find this folder (1. right-click on disk/dvd/iso  2. open).

The most common installation of a crack is to simply copy all files inside the “crack” folder and then paste it into the folder where you have installed the game and replace the old files (Game directory is usually in C:\Program Files (x86)\Game). Simply follow the instructions as shown in images below.



  • You need to open that folder and copy all the files inside that folder as shown below.



  • Once copied, Go to the folder where you have installed your game. It could be any directory you chose to install the game. In the picture shown below, there is a game called “Need for Speed Rivals” installed in that folder. I have copied the files from crack folder and now i am going to open this folder where my game is installed, and paste those files inside it.



  • Paste the files into this folder as shown below.



  • If it asks to replace the files, Click on “Replace the files in the destination” as shown below.



  • The crack has been applied successfully. Now you can run the game by double clicking on the game icon .exe as shown below.



  • Enjoy.

How to change the game language

Follow the step by step guide given below to to change the game language. Please note that it will only change language successfully if the game supports it.

  • Go to the folder where you have installed your game.
  • Find the “.ini” file in that folder and open it.
  • Usually the “.ini” files are with the name of “steam_api.ini” or “steam_emu.ini” or “codex.ini” or “skidrow.ini” or “3dmgame.ini” etc.
  • If you have enabled to hide the common extensions of files, then you will not be able to see the ini extension. Only the names will be visible to you. For example “steam_api”.
  • The icon for these files looks usually like a text icon.
  • Right click on the ini file and click on “Open with” and select “Notepad” to open it.
  • Search for the line with language=english.
  • Change the language name as you like. For Example, if you want russian as your language, change english to russian and save the file.
NOTE: The language line in steam_api is usually case sensitive. Write it in lowercase letters. For example, if you want English as your language, write it as “english” all in small letters, as shown below.
If the ini file as not being saved then follow the steps given below.
  1. Copy the ini file.
  2. Paste it into desktop.
  3. Change the language and save.
  4. Then copy and paste it back to the game folder.
  5. Click on replace if it asks for it.

Update :

For some games, writing common language name does not work, for example The Sims 4. For these games, you need to put the language in code. Below are some language codes you can use to change language via ini file.

cs_CZ = Czech
da_DK = Danish
de_DE = German
en_US = US English
es_ES = Spanish (Spain)
fi_FI   = Finnish
fr_FR  = French (France)
it_IT   = Italian
ja_JP  = Japanese
ko_KR= Korean
nl_NL = Dutch
no_NO= Norwegian
pl_PL  = Polish
pt_BR = Portuguese (Brazil)
ru_RU = Russian
sv_SE = Swedish
zh_TW= Chinese (Traditional)

Example of changing language for The Sims 4 game is as shown below.

Subaat June 3, 2017 at 6:13 pm

Once you have installed the game + DirectX + VC redist + Origin …. Then restart the pc…
If it still gives errors, Then delete everything and install again, apply [email protected] again and then try to run it.. It should run now..

If after all that it doesn’t.. then there must be an issue with your pc or graphics card
