Post by mermaidgaga on Sun 02 Jun 2013, 14:47

When I installed the sims 3 it worked, then after a month started craching  after playing for an 1h, the 30 min of play and now after 5 mins.... I really have no idea what to do, I did DEP, nothing, I have  change resolution....... and nothing, i am not an expert it this and I dont  want to mess up my game...so better ask for help then ... and just to say, I had installed the game before with no problem on laptop and it worked good, and now on the good computer it crashes !
my computer is, if it is needed :
Windows 7 Ultimate, service pack 1,
Processor intel(R)Core (TM) i5 CPU    650 @3,2 GHz
Installed memory Ram 4.00 gb, (3,5 gb usable)
System Type 32-bit opereating system

//EDIT

o and I dont have any new mods, all I had one month ago and nothing was wrong

It started again to crash, I do  all and when I go to create a sims, or any thing else, over, I can play only 5 min again, an I do  not have "WorldCaches"..... any new advice ?

Hello,

First of all, AFTER EVERY CRASH, go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 and delete the contents of the folder "Currentgame.sims3"
Wink.

What about your latest Windows and graphics driver updates ? Have you already downloaded them ?

Have you also tried the "4 GB patch" ? You need to patch the "TS3W.exe" in Program files(x86)/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin (= that's the Sims 3 base game location, by the way).

Also go again to
My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 and delete the following things:

-CASPartCache.package
-compositorCache.package
-scriptCache.package
-simCompositorCache.package
-socialCache.package
-plus the contents of the folders "WorldCaches" & "Thumbnails"

That should do for now. If nothing works, let us know Wink.
Good luck!

Well you should be fine for a while. If ever it starts crashing again, you can repeat the procedure...

Is the mod you had from a month ago still in the Mods folder? If yes, update it or delete it.
