Did everything like guide told me to but still black screen and sims will not start. [SOLVED]

Post by Cheetahh on Mon 25 Feb 2013, 00:35

So i downloaded sims 3 base and downloaded seasons pack. Updated my base and installed the Seasons and after that i redownloaded the fix and copied the .exe and .dll file to the "Bin" folder. I started the game it gave me black screen for few seconds and after that it shut down and windows was trying to solve the problem and it closed automatically. I don't know what to do i can post screenshots if its needed and i need Help.
Thanks Smile

I didn't take the picture but the error message is "Sims 3 has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

Try re-doing steps 2-4 here.

Also, backup and remove your "Documents/Electronic Arts/Sims 3" folder.

I downloaded manual patch yesterday and do i have to do it again? I cant install the Seasons before i have patched it. It says in the guide that if you have problems with installing due update then do the step 2 first

Hello,

No, yesterday is the latest version.

Completely restart your computer, only logging into the user that you're attempting to install on. This way the computer doesn't even open anything for the other user.

It's not really necessary now, but it's the easiest way to start with a "blank slate" for the game. If you ever do so, just make a copy to your desktop and delete the original, or rename the folder.
