island paradise black screen

Post by anamaryymariaa on Sat 06 Jul 2013, 22:39

everytime I try to play Paradise Island I get a black screen. I've tried reinstalling the manual patch, tried using the ultimate fix, I've uninstalled then re-installed and nothing. I'm assuming the issue is because of the patch because I was just playing Superstars the other day with no problem. I've read other peoples issues with the same problem and tried with they did but got nothing! someone please help! i have a 13 hour flight to Doha soon and I really want to spend most of my flight playing Paradise Island! Thank You in advance!

Hello,

At this moment, I'm testing this (extremely bugged) "Island Paradise" expansion - and the only thing I can tell you is how I solved this problem for me (I had that problem once too):

1) Re-boot your computer

2) After re-booting, lower the resolution of your computer screen to 1024 x 768.

3) 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" and "Currentgame.sims3" (if you don't find any content in Currentgame.sims3, then it's fine too).


After doing all of this, my game worked again, but I'm not sure if it can help you too - I'm still trying to figure out what's behind this.

still didn't work :/

 
EDIT
my game loads up now but I'm getting the "no disc found" pop up once it loads. i know i need to download the ultimate fix and replace the #crack files, but I'm not too sure where to put the new .exe and .dll files because there's no folder for Island Paradise

Hello,


Those go into the base game bin.
I have a different experience with this matter. I don't have Island Paradise, but I did patch to 1.55 and after that I got a black screen on start up. 
If you have any custom lots (from the exchange or another 3rd party source) uninstall them and see if that helps.
