In game crashing

Post by SittingBowl on Tue Nov 05, 2013 2:29 pm

Hello! 

I installed University Life yesterday and after a few minutes of the game loading it suddenly crashes. I searched the other forums for a solution but I haven't found anything that helped. I have the Ultimate fix 1.63, and I downloaded Island Paradise last week. Those are the only two expansions I have downloaded from g4tw. I tried uninstalling University life and reinstalling it but that did not work. I tried fixing it through the DEP method, but there were no files in the 'bin' folders. I uninstalled University but the game still crashes when I try to load a family. I am also getting a "You have installed an unofficial version of the game..." notification before my game loads. Island Paradise worked perfectly and I didn't have any problems with it. I did read somewhere that you have to download the expansions in the right order, but I did not know that til after I installed University. Oh, and I have no mods installed and only like 2 cc items. Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks.


Edit: I have uninstalled island paradise as well as the cc, I am still getting the notification stating "It looks like you have installed an unofficial game modification that does not match your current version of The Sims 3. We recommend that you either uninstall these game modifications or get updated versions of them -otherwise you may experience crashes or significant bugs." My game is up to date, and I no longer have anything unofficial installed. I think.

Hello,


You're actually encountering a simple-fix kind of error!  When you have crashing and the game is telling you you are using an 'unofficial modification', it basically means that the Ultimate Fix was NOT applied properly.  I highly suggest you click on one or both of the links in my signature (as one is a five step solution and the other is a video on how to do the five steps efficiently without mess-up). 

If after you've done these things you still have problems, errors or questions, please feel free to let us know as we're always here to help!

Let me know your progress and good luck!  Smile

So far is has not crashed and the notification hasn't shown up! Thank you soo much for the help!
Just one question.
If I want to download another expansion would I put the # crack files in the bin as the installation guide suggests, use the ones found in the Ultimate fix download, or just ignore them? 

Thank you again for the help.

Hello,

You're better off downloading all the expansions you want first THEN applying the manual patch and Ultimate Fix.

However, I do understand that sometimes these things don't all happen at once, so what you'd want to do is even if you've already applied the Ultimate Fix and you've downloaded/installed a new expansion, reapply the Ultimate Fix and you should be good to go!  Remember to back up any saves though, before reapplying the Fix because sometimes it can erase your save data (as it's cleanly resetting a few different files in the Sims 3 folder).
