Default towns not launching. Please help :X

Post by thedibhuman on Thu 07 Mar 2013, 22:54

Ive posted a similar question before and thought i had fixed the problem by setting all my graphics down very low.

I have all eps and stuff packs except the latest, university.

The only default EA town i can load up properly is Twinbrook, all the others get to the loading screen, load up to almost the very end, then the music stops playing and it never gets past (approx) 98%.

I have no problems loading up custom made worlds, including Jay's London-England, (and it runs nearly flawlessly on very high settings) the largest known custom world made.

So, anyone have any idea why this is happening? I really want to play the default towns as they have a particular charm to them.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

My computer specs are:

Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1

64 bit

3 gigs ram

Graphics card: ati mobility radeon hd 4200

I also have quite a few mods and cc installed, but this problem was persisting before i installed any mods.

Did you try backing up and removing "Documents/Electronic Arts/Sims 3" at all?? It's a long shot, but caches may be a culprit.

Also, has this been going on since you installed your games, or just since you changed something?

I will try that, though i clear all the caches before i load up most of the time.

And, this has been going on since I installed the game. I first tried loading up sunset valley, then bridgeport, then i tried twinbrook on low settings, it loaded, then i tried riverview, then bridgeport again, then moonlight falls, and NONE of them load up except twinbrook.

//EDIT

Hah, still waiting for the EA file to back up to my desktop, 6.6 gb! I
will report back when it finishes, and I try to load up Moonlight falls.

//EDIT

I backed up the EA documents folder to my desktop, then removed the
folder, and tried loading up Moonlight Falls, and It did the same thing,
music stops and it wont go past 98%... The game tips keep playing
through and the mouse cursor keeps spinning, but, alas, no town...

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply!
Unfortunately we were not able to get back to you in time. I'd like to apologize for that.

Do you still need assistance?
