Game taking extremely long time to load

Post by NerdsInParis on Sat 09 Nov 2013, 18:15

My game has been loading for about 3 hours without any sign of actually starting up. When I open up my task manager, the Sims doesn't appear in it at all, and I have tried removing my save files and my custom content but it still will sit there loading for a very long time. The Expansion Packs and Stuff Packs I have are down in an image attachment. Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Have you tried removing the whole "The Sims 3" folder completely ? (it's located in My Documents/Electronic Arts). Just rename that folder into anything you like, then start up the game again.

Let us know how it goes - if it does, we will see how to get back your saves and other stuff. Good luck ! Smile
