Game freezes completely after few mn but the sound still plays

Post by Occultine on Sun 07 Apr 2013, 22:06

Hello, it seems like my game looove to find new ways to make me crazy. It stopped producing the "Unknown error" bug but now I have a problem within the game itself.

I downloaded quite a few of store CC on the Mediafire account of this site, and installed the towns I was lacking, particularly Lucky Palms and its CC. I put all the fixes as required in the Packages folder, and all was good for a while, it was almost heaven Laughing.
I started a game in Lucky Palms, with only one sim.

But suddenly, my game began to freeze few minutes after I open it ! Everything is stuck, my sim and cars etc, but I can still hear ambient sounds (water running etc). One time I could still see the trees and water move even though everything else was stuck. I'm then forced to hard-quit the game Crying or Very sad

At first I though it was some new CC and mods I downloaded that was the cause, but I checked with Dashboard and removed the most recent CC I installed, with no result...

Do anyone has an idea why the game does this and how can I solve this problem ? Help


P.S If (maybe) some of my sentences are messed up I apologize because english is not my mother's tongue, and I have a difficult time trying to explain technical issues in this language...

Thank you both for your answers, I will look into those possible solutions, although it seems (for the Lucky Palms matter) like I have trouble with uninstalling CC from the launcher :/
I'll tell you what happened next !

So I tested what you suggested (following all the steps) and I managed to play for several hours with my new household. I had two "error 12" appearing when saving, when that happened I tried saving again and it seems to work for some time... until it didn't. No matter how many times I tried to save afterwards the error kept showing so I hard-quit the game.
I heard it's a common error but I never had this error before even when I got the persistent "Exception raised" error.

Today I tried to launch the game: in the panel where you choose a save, the one I played yesterday wasn't there, so I closed the game and went to my Saves folder in the EA/The Sims 3 folder and I found two saves : one backup folder from the day before yesterday, and one folder from yesterday (when it crashed) but labelled ".sims3.bad".
I attempted to rename it to ".sims3" and relaunched the game. The save game was there, although the house wasn't showing in the panel (the household did). I launched it but then I got an "Exception raised" type of error...

That's all :/ Do you have any idea to "rescue" my save ?

Hello Occultine,

I've found this post, and I hope it helps you about rescuing your save files.
