Accidentally updated to 1.55

Post by theperksofbeingclassy on Thu 20 Jun 2013, 19:36

On the Sims 3 launcher, I have it checked to automatically update. It updated my game and it went perfectly well. The only problem that I had was when I tried to play the game, it would start loading but the game screen would be black. It would stay like this for a few minutes before it would close itself without any warning.

Is there anyway to fix this without having to reinstall all of the games? I know that the fix isn't out yet for 1.55, but I've never had trouble updating my game before.

Yep, nothing to do except wait for the new Ultimate Fix. It shouldn't be long anymore...

Probably long enough to reinstall the game...

Hello,

For the future, I suggest you ONLY use that big manual "super-patch" for updating your game. In that case, it's a bit easier to apply the "Ultimate fix" too, because then you only need to put the two files from the #crack sub-folder into their right place (Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin) and of course overwrite the old files that are there already.

If you update with the launcher though, you will need to use all files from the Ultimate fix. Wink

I just used the new Ultimate Fix and followed the instructions, yet it didn't do anything at all. My game still won't work.

Hello,

What about the suggestions posted in the following article ? http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-updated-on-29-09-2012

Especially suggestions #2 (deactivating DEP) and #3 (assigning more RAM to memory) could be useful. If you want to use the "4 GB patch", then patch the "TS3W.exe" in the base game location (C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin).

What about your graphics driver ? Is it up-to-date ?

What error do you get?
//EDIT: Yes, RAM has nothing to do with it. Go ahead!
