The Sims 3 Crash and Error 12

Post by unique_dq on Tue 26 Mar 2013, 05:52



When I play Sims 3, at first it is running smoothly, but whenever you save it, it says "Error Code 12". And also, the game stops frequently and sometimes says "Sims 3 has stopped working" or it sometimes just stop and I could not click anything. Whenever this happens, I shut down my laptop directly (Without clicking the "Shut Down" button from the Start menu.)

I applied the fix about 20 times and I also did the DEP exemption and restarted my computer. I also applied the patch and reinstalled the base game and its expansions. But it still doesn't work.


Please help me, everything I do with my sim families could not be saved...


Waiting for your reply.

Patch all of the pre-Generations expansions and Stuff packs, that should reduce the error frequency and remove the save crash.

You have to patch them individually cause Maxis are a bunch of liars.

I got error 12 yesterday, and found this guide useful (http://sims3.crinrict.com/en/2011/03/error-save-errors-error-12-13-or-16.html):

For me it was as simple as deleting the files in the \Currentgame.sims3 folder. I had a game crash the day before and there were still files leftover that should only be there when the game is running. Also go into your saves folder and delete any file/folder with a filename ending in .bad, these are created after every crash while saving.

There are lots more tips at the link I provided.
