The game keeps getting a max memory crash during build/buy mode. Plus the launcher takes ages to open.

Yes, I'm back with yet another crashing problem to bother you guys. Although thankfully this time it only happens on build/buy mode for some reason. Yes, I've already tried the usual fixes like the DEP exceptions, 4GB patch, lowering the settings, making sure the game is using the proper graphics card, taking out CC, the works. But the game still crashes on build/buy. The strange thing is that the game runs beautifully on live mode even with everything except the reflections and displayed lots maxed out. Another problem I'm having is that the launcher takes a REALLY long time to open ever since I installed Island Paradise.

Thanks to whoever can help me. I really hope I won't have to resort to reinstalling everything again.

Hello there,

Try re-applying the "manual patch", you can find it here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v155-fix-manual-patch. Afterwards re-apply the "Ultimate fix", available here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems.

Keep in mind that you only need the two files that are in the #crack folder of the "Ultimate fix". Copy these two files (TS3W.exe + TSLHost.dll) to C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and replace the existing files.

Also: you should never use the cracks that are included in the expansions that you download; only use the "Ultimate fix".

Good luck for now !

The idea is not bad, but if the problem was insufficient memory, then it's in my opinion unlikely that the crashes only happen in Buy-/Buildmode. Wink 

//EDIT

My launcher doesn't open at all. I have to start the game directly by double-clicking on the TS3W.exe. According to the information on the patch 1.55, EA modified the launcher (again) so that installed ".sims3packs" don't disappear anymore. While this was meant as an improvement, EA screwed up again. Lots of people seem to have problems when trying to start the game with the launcher (or even open the launcher at all).

Thanks for the help guys. I'm gonna try re-applying the manual patch. Hopefully it'll work since I want to start a relatively huge build.
