Can't start game with 1.55 patch and Island Paradise after deleting expansion pack. [SOLVED]

Post by Karinanie on Tue 25 Jun 2013, 18:50

Hi there! To make up some space for Island Paradise, yesterday I deleted Supernatural and some other Sims downloads I don't use anymore. I cleared up the cache files that are safe to delete. Last night I played just fine, but since this morning I haven't been able to play at all. Sims Launcher has been unresponsive and when I try to start a game, it freezes completely so I have to shut down my laptop many times already. Can anyone help me with this to see what I did wrong? Thank you.

How did you delete the EPs? And do you have the Ultimate Fix compatible with the new version 1.55 and IP?
Maybe re apply it again...

I uninstalled by Control Panel and deleted whatever folder was left, and yes I updated the Ultimate Fix with the compatible version. I'll try that again just in case Smile

I think I solved the problem. I deleted my Electronic Arts Folder and started a new clean fresh folder. I managed to save some things but not all, but at least the game is running now Smile
