Will not load after installation of Island Paradise

Post by Cou on Fri 28 Jun 2013, 20:34

I've installed Island Paradise and everything in the installation process went smoothly, but for some reason the game takes a very long time to launch. The launcher appears after around 3-5 minutes of actually clicking the shortcut. After the game itself launches the screen turns black and the cursor is the busy/pending cursor. The game has successfully loaded before but only once or twice. The rest of the time the screen just remains black with the cursor on it.

I've gotten impatient and tried to close it and restart it with the task manager and there it says the the sims is "not responding". But I've checked the status on task manager every time ever since and sometimes it ends up loading even though the status was "not responding" on the task manager.

It says I've still got 147GB free of 342GB on my local disk? I'm not really sure whats wrong with it at the moment is my laptop just slow because before island paradise it loads really quickly. Was the additional expansion pack just too much for my laptop? Its a Probook 4331s btw.

It was probably to much memory for you laptop to handle even my computer takes about 3 minutes for the launcher but yea it looks like its just to much info for you laptop try scanning you laptop if it can run island paradise at http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri that should help you maybe.

Hello,

I will soon open a new topic on this in the "In-game problems" section. But until then, try the following things:

Go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 and delete the following stuff:


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


Lower the resolution of your computer to 1024 x 768. Then try starting the game. You might even bypass the launcher by double-clicking on the TS3W.exe in C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin (= the base game location).

Also try to re-boot your computer. Then try again to start the game.

Yes, I also had some "black screens" already. But luckily I managed to get the game working again - with the things I just described. Smile

Hello,


Do you have any mods/cc? Those can be an issue as well and it can be helpful to remove the mods folder from Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 to test this.
If that helps, go through your mods folder to check that they're all up to date.

I took out the mods folder and it worked once, but every time I've tried after that has still resulted in a black screen.

I've the same problem: "The launcher appears after around 3-5 minutes of actually clicking the shortcut. After the game itself launches the screen turns black and the cursor is the busy/pending cursor. The game has successfully loaded before but only once or twice. The rest of the time the screen just remains black with the cursor on it."
I've tried to remove mod folder, but nothing.
I've tried to clear some stuff (as it's written here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t10776-guide-sims-3-university-life-all-in-game-problems-fix plus the contents of the folders "WorldCaches" & "Thumbnails"), but still nothing.
So, i've deleted The Sims 3 folder to recreate it, automatically, by the game; i've put only mod folder.. and the game loads, everytime.
So, i think, the problem isn't mod folder but something else, right?!
Maybe it is caused by installed sims3packs?
I've video card updated.. before The sims 3 Island Paradise and patch 1.55, the game worked and loaded perfectly.
Help me. :'(

You said it worked once, which is weird. Do you mean to say the second time it didn't work anymore?

Yeah it didn't work the first time, but then it somehow worked the second time. But all the times I've tried after that it wouldn't work.
