Lagging in game. [SOLVED]

Post by oiezs on Sun 13 Oct 2013, 07:08

Hi..

I have a problem.. it keep lagging every 5-10 second for a while.. sound or anything will be run smoothly except for my sim that will lag for few second.. the time also will stop during the lag including menu.. then it will continue and repeated! i try to update my graphic card but get error.. what should i do to solve the problem? it started yesterday.. i only installed all the sims 3 expansion pack provided by games4theworld.. no custom content or anything else..

graphic: ATI Mobility Radeon HD5650 1GB
model: Toshiba Satellite L645
cpu: i5 M460 2.53 GHz
ram: 6GB

Thanks Smile

//EDIT


now my save game is no longer loading.. im waiting more than 40 minutes.. and it still the same.. if i choose new game, it will load.. usually it will load between 2-3 minutes..

Does this happen to this old save? Can you create a new save to see if there are any differences?

Creating a new save won't lose your old saves.

Please rename the folder C:\Users\(your username)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 to anything you like and run the launcher. Then, go to the renamed folder and move the folder Saves to the new generated folder "The Sims 3".

Now create a new save to see if there are any differences.

As for the save that cannot be loaded, I suggest check the folder Saves and see if there are any folders with extension ".sims3.bad". If yes, please remove the folders.

If this doesn't save your old save, please read this guide and check out method 5 and 6 from the guide. You can try renaming the backup folder associating with your current save from (the name of your save).sims3.backup to (the name of your save).sims3. Make sure to delete the folder with the name (the name of your save).sims3 beforehand.

Hello,

You can either the folder, but be sure you have backed up the folder "Saves". And I am sorry to tell you that if this problem persists (loading problem), the save is possibly corrupted and there are no solutions for this except the ones I have mentioned.

Corruption can be of various causes, and the most common ones are Mods, Custom Content or corrupted caches. Sometimes the reason why the save is unknown (some of our users have corrupted saves and they don't have any CC or Mods), the only one to blame is EA.

Is your lagging problem solved?

Yes of course you can delete the corrupted save.

In your case, it won't affect much. Lagging is possibly caused by the caches.
