Sims 3 has stopped working. [SOLVED]

Post by friendlyfi on Sun 03 Mar 2013, 23:39

Hi all, I have been playing my game for a number of sim days now with no trouble at all, as far as I can think I haven't installed anything new recently but all of a sudden my game crashes to desktop with the "sims 3 has stopped working" message I have gone through the forums and tried just about everything suggested but nothing helps, I have 3 different saved games and it happens on all of them, please help as I don't want to have to start from scratch with re-installing them, I have all xp and stuff packs a few nraas mods and lots of cc.

Thanks Fi

PS. I think you are all fab for doing this for us poor simmers Smile

Well what I suggest in these cases is regular saving, like every 20 minutes or so. Apart from that, you could try and see if your mods and cc are compatible with v. 1.50 of the game, cause that may be causing trouble if they are not.
Finally, try everything suggested in this thread.

Good luck and let us know the results!

Hi, thanks for the reply, but i cant save it as it crashes within 2 or 3 minutes of starting the game and the mods and cc have all been working fine since the latest patch so I don't think it will be that or it would have crashed when I dl`d the patch. thanks for the suggestions though fi

Hello,

Just to be sure, you do want to back up and remove ALL your Mods and Custom Content first.

Hello,

Try looking for an updated version of that bed. A version that is compatible with the game version you currently use.
Anyway, good luck, enjoy the game and, indeed, please let us know if you need more assistance!
