Installation problem / " an error has occured while loading game"

Post by nancoula on Tue 12 Feb 2013, 10:06

Hello!I find Games4TheWorld the most trustworthy and helpful forum, so i decided to write my problem here.I had installed all the expansion packs(WA,Pets,Late night, ambitions,generations,showtime) and my game was working over-all fine until i decided to install seasons.When i installed seasons there was a load of problem in my installation, and whenever i started to load a saved game it would say"An error has occured,please restart the application".After browsing sims forums i found out i was doing something wrong in installations, but that didn't really help me.In all my expansion installation, i put the crack contents in the bin of the expansion i was installing.So idecided to delete them all and start again with an installation.Also, i have original discs of the sims 3 basegame and the late night expansion, so could this be a problem??I re-installed thme all again, copying the crack folders of each expansion to the sims3 basegame folder, but the same error happened when i made a household and then i tried to load it.Now i am thinking to apply this ULTIMATE FIX i've seen in your thread, but i sadly think that it will not work either Sad .I'm looking forward to your answer, thank you for your time Smile


P.S. I just uninstalled all expansions, and when i clicked to uninstall sims 3 basegame it says " During execution of the programme an error has occured.Please be sure you're finished with the previous installation and you have close all applications . if this error continues please communicate with your provider Electronic Arts".

Hello,

No need to reinstall everything, but since you started it, let's finish it anyway.
Use Your Uninstaller! Pro from www.games4theworld.org to (force) uninstall the game(s). Use the "Super Mode".
After uninstalling everything, please restart your PC.

Now, reinstall following these instructions very carefully: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
DO NOT skip any steps and re-download both the manual patch and the Ultimate Fix. (Ps. it doesn't matter that you own retail versions of some of the games, they'll work together just fine)

After doing all steps, try to start your game. Let us know if it works and/or if you run into any problems. Good luck!

(After we've fixed the game itself, we'll move on to the in-game part, don't worry!)

Hello there,

You're welcome!
No problem, remember that school is always way more important.

Yes, after installing everything, you can add new expansion packs whenever you like; just do not apply any more "# Crack" folders. Then test the game, if it works, don't fix what isn't broken. If it didn't work, just re-do step 3 and 4: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
If that didn't work either, re-do step 2-4, that'll always give you the latest, working version of the game: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Good luck and please let us know the result when you've got the time! (Don't worry, we'll be here whenever you need us)

Well I installed the Ultimate-fix way! I only copied the #Crack folder and not the others ( did I do that right?) . So it all looked ok and I ran the sims3. I created a family( I was able to do that before) and i put them in a home then saved the game. I turned of the sims and i ran them again. I clicked on my saved game and after a while loading it says : A serious error occured while loading "starlight Shores". We recomend you to restart the application".

So in general, I have the exact same problem as before!

Thank you for your softwares they are awesome!

Please, when you have the time, a solution would be helpful!Thank you very much!


//EDIT//

If it helps you i just noticed that there are 2 Electronic Arts folders on MY DOCUMENTS.The one has recorde videos, installed worlds, downloads etc and the other has some .package files and some files similar to the other folder.Is that normal?

Also I get this pop-up about he luncher that stopped working, but that doesn't seem like a big problem

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply!
Try this for the error you get with the save: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t3642-a-serious-error-has-occurred-while-loading-possible-fix-the-sims-3-neigbourhood-loading

Did you install any of the expansion packs in another language?

It's okay, don't worry for the late reply. I tried it but it didn't really work.No, I didn't install any of the expansions in other languages.I think that it isn't a problem of the expansions, beacause i think, that if i just install the base game , the problem wil remain.Do you have anything to suggest?

(I'll probably reply late too, i'm going a family vacation ths week, i'll answer as soon as i'm back).

Thank you!

Hello,

Sorry, I don't know much about in-game stuff, but I'll link Lady ElDi to this topic. Maybe she has got other solutions for you.
She's currently in the middle of a pregnancy, so it might take a few days to reply. (But that shouldn't be a problem, since you're leaving for a few days)

According to my own data, I'm at the very end of that pregnancy lol, give or take a few days.

Let's see here, there are 2 Electronic Arts folders in your "Documents", what if you backup and remove both?

My gosh, Lady, I didn't mean literally "in the middle of". But ah, you get the point.
Go! Go give birth to that baby!
