My game suddenly stopped working! [SOLVED]

Post by emlinhael on Sun 04 Aug 2013, 16:24

So up until last night I was playing just fine. But now everytime I try to start the game it's not responding. I tried restarting my computer, I scanned my CC for any corrapted files but found nothing alarming and I used the ultimate fix but still nothing. Help please?

Hello,

Do you get any kind of error message ? If yes, what exactly does the error message say ?

Also, try to (re-) apply the "manual patch" from here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v155-fix-manual-patch

After that, re-apply the Ultimate fix. Remember: in that case it's enough when you only use the two files that are in the #crack folder of the Ultimate fix. Copy these two files into C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Of course, you need to "replace the existing files".

What I'm surprised about is that your game seemingly worked last night. Did you add any CC or mods in the meantime ?

You can also go to My Documents/Electronic Arts and rename the folder "The Sims 3", into anything you like. Then try to start the game again.

And: I hope you don't have your games installed on an external hard-drive ?

Hi there, No I don't get an error message. When I try to start the game usualy I get a black screen and the loading cursor and after a couple of minutes it goes to the loading screen. But now it stays at the black screen for way to long and on the operations management it says that it's not responding. 

I did add some new CC but I used Delphy's Dashboard to clean it out, so I don't think that's the problem.

I'll give what you said a try and hopefuly it'll work.. Smile

Did you try to use Game Booster?
