Post by majick26 on Wed 30 Jan 2013, 07:04

hi i have all the expansions for sims 3 except the latest 70s 80s and 90s stuff the installation worked fine for all the manual updater worked fine and i aplied the sims 3 fix as directed i open the launcher and get a message that says error unable to connect to origin ( this is not the problem) i press ok and proceed to press the play button after that the screen goes black ( as always) then i hear a few seconds of the start up music and the whole thing minimizes i bring it back up to a still black screen and it minimizes again i have done it repeatedly sometimes i can see the sims arrow some times i can see the sims loading cursor and some times i can see flashes of the sims loading screen. i dont know if im not waiting long enough before i maximize it after it minamizes or what but it is irritating. i have reaplied the fix atleast four times following the instructions exactally. if any one could tell me how to get it working i would very much appreciate it.

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply!
Do you have any Mods or Custom Content?
And do you have any background applications running while playing? (E.g. Skype, Bittorrent etc.)
