Sims 3 crashing

Post by JTdai on Fri 01 Nov 2013, 21:12

Hey guys, I'm using a VAIO windows 8 64 bit lappy.
Geforce GT 640 LE Graphics
6GB Ram

And I usually use my computer to do my design work and all.

So last week I downloaded the Into the future iso and installed and managed to play it.
But today when i tried to switch it on, it goes into the blue circle loading button black screen background
then it flickers and goes back to my desktop with the icon on the bottom.
I've been having this issue for quite a while.
But each time after I re-install and replay it's fine then when I switch it off and play again after a few days this happens again.
Is this because of the windows 8? Because I never had this issue when i was using my windows 7..
Please help!
Been dying to play sims 3 for the longest time and now that i have a new laptop i wanna play it so badly.Help Help Help Help Help Help

Hello,

First of all, try re-doing the steps 2, 3 and 4 from here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

There have been some problems recently with the Ultimate fix link, but now it is solved again.

Also, you might want to give the suggestions in the following topic a try: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-updated-on-14-07-2013

As for the "DEP" fix, it might be different in Windows 8, so have an additional look here. About the "4 GB patch", double-click on the patch and choose the TS3W.exe in the base game location (after you've applied the Ultimate fix).

Let us know how it went. Good luck ! Smile
