Sims 3 Island Paradise Shuts off Computer after 20 minutes

Post by emxlyy on Mon 22 Jul 2013, 10:38

Hi so I installed the Sims 3 AIO** Edition. Downloaded just fine. everything ran smoothly. 

Started the game and while I am in CAS 20 minutes into it. Screen goes black and my laptop shuts off. When i turn my laptop back on, it turns on normally. Is it something with the game? or is it because my laptop might be overheating?

I downloaded from you guys before. Never had a problem then. I downloaded this edition, because of the Island Paradise, but now I can't even play it for an hour.. Sad 

Please help me find the solution if it has to do with the game is there a fix? 

Thank you

ps. you guys are awesome!

Blackboxes are usually bad.
I mean, they're cool and all, but you cannot update them, you cannot crack them, and you cannot add any expansion... Sad
So my advice would be to uninstall it, restart your pc, then install games from here...

Yeah I have done that before. I feel like my computer might get too hot and just shuts off? im not too sure thought it might have been the game. I can play the game. just not for a long time.

A blackbox is merely all the games packed up in one, if your laptop withstands it, it will be the same for expansions installed separately...
So don't worry and go ahead! Wink

Oh, I am saying that your AOI edition doesn't compress games in any way. It just groups them together.
So, your laptop will work the exact same way with your AOI edition and with all expansions installed separately from here.
Basically, if your laptop would shutdown or glitch with all expansions installed separately from here, it would already be doing it with your AOI edition.
So, it is safe to uninstall your AOI edition, restart your laptop, then install the games from G4TW! Wink
That way, it will be much easier to update and crack!
