Hello,

Have you applied the #crack of the Ultimate Fix (which can be downloaded here) afterwards? Drag and drop the contents of this folder to C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Have you installed any expansions? Install at least one of the following: Island Paradise, University Life, 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff, Seasons, Supernatural, Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry Sweet Treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff, Generations. Afterwards, apply the same fix again with the same method above. If all these don't work somehow, try this.

Hello,

You must install at least one of the following expansions to make the game work with the manual patch and the Ultimate Fix:
Island Paradise, University Life, 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff, Seasons, Supernatural, Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry Sweet Treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff, Generations. Before installing any expansions, apply the manual patch first. After installing, apply the #crack of the Ultimate Fix to C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

Make sure you have read the instructions on how to install The Sims 3 correctly here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Hello,

You must apply the #crack of the Ultimate Fix (again) after installing expansions!

Hello,

Can you launch your Sims 3 launcher to check if the game is 1.55.4 and if Pets and Supernatural icons (which are at the bottom of the launcher) are brightened? If it's not (namely 0.0.0.0), something went wrong during patching.

If your base game is up-to-date and you are pretty sure you have applied the #crack of the Ultimate Fix correctly, then open up C:\Users\(your computer name)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Saves, and remove the save folder ended with .sims 3 that you have had the error with. And rename .sims3.backup folder with the same save name to .sims3, and restart the game.

Hello,

Saving it once will also create a .backup folder as well.

Hello,

Start a new save and see if this problem persists.

Hello,

This is very normal. Have you ever started out with a new save?

Hello,

You should always use the "Ultimate fix", and NOT the cracks that are included in the expansions Wink
