Sims 3 keeps crashing / freezing. [SOLVED]

Post by BrokenFEMALE on Sun 27 Oct 2013, 21:53

I am having sort of the issue with my game freezing. I am able to play but I get a tempopray freeze every couple minutes. My game would freeze for about 20-30 seconds. I deleted the files:

Create-a-Sim Cache: CasPartCache.package
Build/Buy mode cache: compositorCache.package
Mod or custom content cache: scriptCache.package
New Sims and skin cache: simCompositorCache.package
SocialCache.package
Look for a folder that says Thumbnails. Delete anything inside of it.
Look for WorldCaches and delete anything inside of it.
Delete downloadedsims.index in the folder SavedSims.

But still seeing the tempopray freeze. I hope it's ok I replied to this topic since I am having almost a similar issue.

Ok no problem. Sorry about that.
I forgot to mention mt game has a bit of lag in it too along with the temporary freeze.

Do you have any mods/CC? Remove the folder Mods to see if there are any differences.

Can you also tell me if this happens to old saves only? Can you create a new save to see if there are any differences?

Hello,

I suggest you re-download and re-apply the "Ultimate fix", because there were problems with the link: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems


I'm not sure if you already did the following, but have you seen this topic here ? http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-updated-on-14-07-2013

If you look at #2, you'll see the "DEP fix" - try this first. Then, at #3, download the "4 GB patch". After downloading, double-click the patch and choose the TS3W.exe from the base game location, usually C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

See if this makes any difference. Good luck !

Do I need to use the 4 GB patch every time I play or just one time?

You only need to use it once.

Sorry I forgot to update how my game is doing. I re-downloaded the
Ultimate fix, and used the 4GB patch and so far my game is running like normal again. I didn't try the 7 fixes because they seemed to complicated, but if my game starts to act up again, I'll try my best with that option. Thanks
  Very Happy 


Moderator edit: good to hear that ! If you have any other questions, you can open another topic. This one is closed though. Have fun !
