Error code 12!

Post by Tomatomash on Thu 07 Jul 2011, 18:06

So, there's a new problem with Sims 3!

A lot of people got it, but I just don't know how to fix it! I can't save my gameprogress cause everytime I do the error thingy comes up! It's annoying as hell! I've searched through forums etc but nothing. So far I've read that the RAMthingy is like, gone. Or that I must remove my saved files, but I've come so far that I don't wanna remove everything!!

Do anybody know how I can fix this? Maybe a fix I can download or so?

Mod edit: Topic moved to right section.

I read that, but that means that I'll have to delete all my saved files. it's so complicated!

I always pause before saving and it doesen't work when I "Save as" either. Also, I don't know how to open a "Saved as" file. :/

Hello,
A "saved as" game is opened the same way as any other saved file, just load it.
I can see what you mean about it being complicated. Simply deleting the folder doesn't seem like much of a solution. Unless you have a back up of course. I haven't encountered this error myself though, so maybe someone here has and can offer a better way to fix it.
Meanwhile, I will move this topic to the right place, should've done that before but I hadn't noticed.

Ah sorry yes, you mentioned that before. Here's what I would try: back up your save games folder, exit the game, follow the steps as mentioned in the link I posted earlier, put a copy of your back-up in its place. That way you only loose your latest progress, if it works.
Also, if that works, make a new back up once in a while just to be on the safe side, in case it happens again.

Hi, I'm having the same problem, and I just started a new game. Maybe it is because Im installing mods for the first time?

Hi Nick,

Mods can cause problems in your game, but I don't think that's the case here. As far as I know, you don't get an error code if mods are the culprit. Problems with mods manifest itself as buggy gameplay and crashes.
Too bad you had to start a new game.

I have read that it is a RAM problem. I have 4096 RAM memory, is this not enough? My system is 32 bit, is this the cause of the problem? Is it possible to change it to 64 bit?

It is possible yes but I believe it has to do with CPU, so unless you want to replace it with a faster one, that seems a little drastic Wink
You'd also think you have enough RAM. So I don't think what you have read applies to your situation.
But I am by no means an expert in computer hardware, maybe someone who is can drop by and shed some light on the situation.

I have the exact same problem, doesn't matter what I do, I allways get the error code 12 when I save. Also if I delete all my save files from the "saves" folder.

I absolutely hate that this code is applied to such a huge range of problems.. I didn't know people were getting the error because of hardware issues.. It's almost impossible to narrow down.. Mine stemmed from misusing a mod.. I had edited a sim in CAS and changed her lifetime wish in the process and after that got the Error code 12 notice.. Luckily the only thing I had done was edit this sim so I was able to figure it out.. So now I just brace for the error whenever I change something.. Is anything you can change back to normal if you've edited it?
