also having black screen issue

Post by astigall on Tue 19 Nov 2013, 23:08

Hi long time user first time poster...
Up until a few days ago I was playing the sims fine...I got the super patch and download into the future and movie stuff. Now I get the black loading screen. I let it sit for about an hour still nothing. I had to do the "control alt delet" to get out of the screen.

I did the fix...my patch is up to date. I did the 4gb thing, added the games to the DEP, everything your site said to do. I need help. I even uninstalled the last two games and reinstalled. I have cc but no mods.

Hello,

Did you follow every step accurately that is located here?:  http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly.

Did you apply the Manual Patch and Ultimate Fix like the steps tell you to do?  You mentioned you used the 'super patch', and I can only assume you are talking about the Manual Patch?  It's super important that you follow those steps before any others!  

There are also two other things I recommend:

1.  Open the Ultimate Fix.rar file if you have it still on your pc, open the .pdf file within and find out what date it says.  If it says 31-10-2013 then you're fine and you have the updated Ultimate Fix.  If not, please re-download it from a mirror link provided in the link above.
2.  Please try running the game WITHOUT mods OR Custom Content. You can just drag and drop any folder/s to your desktop and boot the game up that way.  It makes it a little easier, as you know where the folder containing your CC is.

Let me know your progress.

Happy Simming.  The Sims Plumbob 1

Your Ultimate Fix is outdated then.  The newest one released was 31-10-2013.  Please re-download the Fix from the link I provided earlier (download the MIRROR one!).  Then reapply the Fix to your game so that way you can boot it up and test it.  It should fix your problems!

Did you download the UPDATED version of the Fix, like I said?

Hello,

I'm not sure if your problem is exactly the same as the one from this user here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t14295-ts3-black-screen-nothing-working-solved

But can you have a look at my suggestions there, still ?
