Island Paradise Create-a-Household Problem

Post by platypusmus on Tue 02 Jul 2013, 11:44

Yesterday I installed Island Paradise with no problems. When I tried to play today everything loaded fine until I got to the create a household, choose a household, or move in a household page. When I try to create a household, everything loads, but the sim is invisible. There are also several empty boxes along the bottom of the screen. When I choose either of the other options the game gets stuck overlooking the town, and it will not take me into the playable mode that normally comes after you click the checkmark. I have deleted all mods, and tried uninstalling custom content. Neither have worked for me. Please help!

Hello,

Try to make a new savegame (don't delete the old one yet). Then see if you have similar problems.

The other possibility would be to go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/ and rename the folder "The Sims 3". After that start the game again, make a completely fresh save game and play on for a while.

If renaming that folder doesn't help, please re-name the folder back to its original name again, and we will go further.

 I tried renaming the folder, and I had the same problem. I also tried to make a new savegame, and it did not help either.

Which crack did you use ? The one from the "Ultimate fix" or the one that was included in the expansion ? You should always use the crack from the Ultimate fix. Wink  (if you haven't done so already).

Some suggest to re-apply that big "manual patch" and then re-apply the "Ultimate fix" too (but only the two files from the #crack folder; the TS3W.exe + TSLHost.dll). But I'm not sure if this can help you, but please try it, still.


Do you know how to post screenshots ?

To make a screenshot, press Prt Scr which is ( USUALLY ) next to F12 , on top of Insert , and next to Scroll Lock. Then you open, for example, a program like "Microsoft Paint" and select the option "Paste". Now you should see your screenshot - then you save your picture.

To upload a picture here, click on "Host image", then select your screenshot. After that you should get the URL (the "internet link") for that picture. Now you go to "Insert image" (the symbol on the right next to "Host image") and paste the URL.

Now I would like to see a screenshot (in "Host an image", please select "Resolution 1024x") of this problem in "Create a household".

 I tried to re-apply the patch and the ultimate fix just as you said, but it did not work. EDIT: I found the problem!! I somehow removed the file from the Jazz folder. When I replaced it everything fixed itself. Thank you so much for your help!
