Hello,

Try a clean folder. To do this, simply rename the "The Sims 3" folder in "Documents\Electronic Arts" and start a new game. If that works, move your saves folder to test your save game.

Hello,

You can still try to lower the graphics settings of your computer screen, maybe even disable "VSync" in your graphics card control panel.

Also: go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 and look for the Options.ini file. Open the file (with notepad). Look for the line fullscreen = 1. Change the line to fullscreen = 0 and save the file. Upon restarting the game, it should be in "windowed mode".

Let us know how it worked. Good luck !

You can try un-installing just the base game, and then re-installing it. After that, re-apply the latest manual patch (1.63), then the Ultimate fix.

About the graphics options, usually there is a "logo" of your graphics card, somewhere in the taskbar on the desktop. In that case, it's enough to double-click the logo. Otherwise, look in the "Program files" for a folder with the name of your card manufacturer. In many cases, there should be something called "control panel".

I'm not even sure if it can be a hardware issue, because your game seemed to work sometime before you installed the new patch - it's in my opinion a bit unlikely that the "system requirements" become so much bigger from one patch level to the next.

Otherwise, I'm not sure about this problem. Wat.

I noticed theres a txt and a mdmp file in the sims folder named xcpt username and a date. im almost sure they weren't there but i could be mistaken. Not sure if they have anything to do with it or not....

//EDIT

sorry for double posting but just a quick update on my problem Seems my game some way or another got corrupt preventing it from loading so guess i got to start from scratch now.. thanks for the helpful info though Lady ElDi & Carlos.

Admin: Let's fix that for you. Very Happy
