Ok I just have finished installing every stuff and expansion pack, I did what you told me, didn't patch nor crack anything, except for Generations. I used the files in the "# Crack" folder. Once again, the message appeared, I played anyways and the game freezed. I had to shut down my computer because the game won't answer.

This is really annoying! What can I do now?

Hello,

As IDunc said, there might be some problems with the retail version of the base game not working with the cracked Generations. Just to be sure, I recommend you also download and install the ® Games4theworld version of The Sims 3 base game. Don't forget to restart your PC after uninstalling The Sims 3 and before reinstalling it.

Exactly, there's no need to crack the stuff / expansion packs; only Generations. The files you copy from the Fix to the game folders, those are the original files and are not cracked. They're there so you can update the game, without getting the "Invalid file" error. (Which is caused by cracks)
Just follow the instructions included with the Fix VERY carefully and you should be able to get it all to work. If not, please let us know your problem below. Good luck!

//EDIT

Owh, my bad, I didn't see there was a page 2. Sorry! (Ignore the post above)

Hey, I have the same exact problem. I've been trying to fix it for the last week, with no success. Everything happens like it's supposed to. I get Quit or Continue, I hit continue. I get into the game and I can create sims fine and move them in. I even hit pause on their actions went into build/buy mode and fully remodeled and furnished their house, but about 4-5 seconds after starting to play them the game freezes and I'm not able to alt-tab out. The only way to exit was to hit ctrl-alt-delete and there's a pop-up:



I've tried every fix/suggestion on these forums:

- The original http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-to-desktop-fix-update and then the updated one http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-update-8-06-2011

- http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly-must-read

- http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-latest-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

- Favorlock's installation guide

- Starting the game without the launcher

- Got rid of all custom content

I've done all of these things at least twice (and have read the directions VERY CAREFULLY so as not to miss anything or misplace anything), the games have been installed and uninstalled multiple times just to try different things. I DO have the retail version of the Sims 3 base game, so the last thing I'm going to try is installing the base game from these forums, only waiting on the requested mounting guide. I hope that'll fix it! Sad

Hello,

There were some reports of people who got the game to work when installing our version of the game, even though they had a retail version.
Please do the following:

1. Uninstall The Sims 3 base game.
2. Restart your PC.
3. Reinstall The Sims 3 base game. (You might want to use your own retail / original serial code during the installation, but I don't think it'd matter anyway)
4. See if it works now.

I believe that there is a problem when installing with a retail disc unfortunately. It seems that those who install with retail disc tend to have a problem with the game crashing. Perhaps you should trying installing everything using torrents only.

I followed these steps and I still get the pop-up. Then I uninstalled everything, restarted my computer and installed everything again and I still have it. So, I'm assuming it has something to do with my computer and not the games.

Like I mentioned, try downloading the torrent version of the sims 3. Do not use retail versions. If this still does not work then we can still say that retail disc should not make difference.

People say its there computer, but some people who have said that have been able to get it to work. Some people just make a mistake while reading the instructions. I guess some computers really do dislike people, but it should work the same for everyone using a particular operating system if you ask me.

Hello,

Please read the post above yours. Smile

Which version of the Fix did you use? (Open the "# Installation Guide.pdf" and then look at the "Update: xx-xx-xx")

Well retail disc shouldn't make a difference. I installed the game with my retail disc and the torrents, cracking the retail using the generations crack and it works just fine and dandy. So you should be able to use retail disc I guess.

So, after researching my problem more I'm embarrassed to say that it was a DEP problem. ALTHOUGH, to make myself seem not so stupid the .exe files mentioned here http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-update-8-06-2011 didn't work alone. I went on a rampage and added all the .exe files from the Sims 3/Game/Bin folder plus the ones mentioned in the fix and it worked. Thank you for all your time and help!

I fixed my problem turning off DEP, though the game still crashes over an hour of playing. I get error code 12 and then it crashes or freezes
