Island Paradise crashed my game. [SOLVED]

Post by GrindhouseBarbie on Sat 17 Aug 2013, 09:45

I recently updated my game thru g4w, then downloaded Island Paradise as well as Ultimate fix. When I went to go play the game it did the black screen then minimized it so i maximized it and it went to the loading screen and crashed. and after about an hour of this non sense and reading threads/etc i decided to uninstall it, and now it just continues to crash....heeeeeeelp before i esssplode.

Hello,

Can you try this ? Go to My Documents/Electronic Arts and rename the folder "The Sims 3" (example: "The Sims 3_backup"). Then try starting the game again.

Obviously you managed to start the game, otherwise you wouldn't have realized that your old stuff is gone. The fact that the game starts is good - that's what I wanted to know. Wink

Now: go back to your old (renamed) "The Sims 3" folder, and copy the following things:

1) The folder "Saves"
2) The folder DCCache
3) the folder Installed Worlds
4) The folder Downloads
5) The folder Mods

And then you paste all of it into your NEW "The Sims 3" folder. See if your game works then. By the way: you made sure that all your mods are compatible with your current base game version ?
