Hello,

I think you should rename this folder: C:\Users\(your computer name)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 and try again. Does this happen to old saves only or happen everytime no matter the save is just created or old?

Try this, back up your save games from your My Documents\Electronic Arts\ The Sims 3/Saves

Then delete the Electronic Arts folder from your My Documents and relaunch the game. This will make the game recreate the folder in your My Documents. YOu should be asked to start a new game since there wont be any saves yet. Close the game and copy your saves back to My Documents\ Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Saves. No try playing your save games, it should fix the problem if your save game(s) is/are not corrupted.

Hello,

In that case, backup the mods folder as well, but run a test without them first. If the problem persists after copying your mods folder back, the problem is with your mods/cc and you'll have to go through your files to see which one is causing the problem.

Hello,

Not the one in Program Files. Have you even read what we have just posted? We mean the one in Documents\Electronic Arts. Please rename that folder. And please don't double-post.

Hello,

Attitude? I didn't even swear, or say anything rude in my post. I just kindly ask you to read the posts.

Hello,

Is there even profanity in this sentance? If yes, please state your point. And please just leave it there. I don't want to argue with you on this one.

Bad attitude comes in many ways, it does not include only the use of vulgarities. The way you express your words is a form of bad attitude.

Hello,

I don't see any vaildity in your post. "Even" is a word to emphasize, to make my point more obvious. That is, to ask you to read the post carefully. Now just leave it here.

Back to your problem, is your problem solved?
