Hello,

How did you try to update the game ? Have you also tried the "manual patch" ? http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v155-fix-manual-patch

If you already tried that, you might try downloading the patch with a different internet browser.

Please go to Documents\Electronic Arts and rename the folder "The Sims 3" to "The Sims 3.old".
See if the game works better...

Yes, this is normal. This folder contained your saved games.
Now, remove the ".old" in the folder's name, and try to Try to delete the cache.

Then restart your game. See if it helps.

Hello again,


If you use your "old" The Sims 3 folder, then I would also, besides the cache files that Shamrock mentioned, look into the folder "Currentgame.sims3". If there are any contents in it, please delete everything. If not, then it's fine too. Wink

Thing is, I think this means your saved game is corrupted.
So you might have to delete the folder altogether. You will lose all saved items and most CC...

Maybe I overlooked that, but you said you renamed the folder "The Sims 3" ? And now you say that your old savegames are gone ?

Have you already tried to go to your OLD "The Sims 3 folder", and copy the sub-folder "Saves" ?

You then need to paste the folder "Saves" into your NEW "The Sims 3" folder - and you need to "overwrite" everything. If done correctly, your old savegame should show up in the main menu then.
