My sims game lags a lot. [SOLVED]

Post by auti on Sat 30 Nov 2013, 20:59

Okay, my game is slow, and it lags A LOT. But, it usually happens after playing it for a few hours. The cc I have are mostly clothes and hair, so they shouldn't cause a problem. I do have mods, but they're just NRaas and I've never had a problem with them before. The objects I have are just beds and a few lights. I only have like 10 objects all together. And then I have sliders, freckles, beauty marks, and makeup. I'm pretty sure it's my computer, but I have no idea about the stuff inside of the computer, I'm more of a software type of person. Here are my specs.

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
System Manufacturer: Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd
System Model: GA-990FXA-UD3
Bios: Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG
Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 965 Processor (4 CPUS) ~3.4GHz
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series
Memory: 4096mb RAM

And I have 920 gig on my hard-drive. I'm only using 300 something. (There's 641 free, I'm too lazy to do the math.)
Anything else, just ask.

Hello,

What do you mean by "after playing it for a few hours" ? Do you mean you play the game for several hours without exiting it ? If so, try shortening your playing sessions; save the game and close it for a while (ro "relieve the computer"). While my desktop computer is easily capable of handling the game plus all expansions and stuff packs, my playing sessions are never longer than one hour.

Beyond that, read this topic here for general tips on how to cope with lag: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t4692-game-lag-possible-fixes

Let us know how it went ! Smile

Yes, do that. Smile  And again: try shortening your playing time even more, just to see if the lag occurs.

haha i did what the guide said excluding installing the game booster because ive done that before and it did not help at all, and it made my other game crash a lot.
also, another thing i did was disable the ingame store preview things, and it really sped up the load time for CAS and build/buy. 
and i played for like 4 hours and it didnt lag at all except for the first half hour.

I think that sounds good ! Very Happy  Do you need any further assistance ?

I don't use this "Gamebooster"-thing myself because if you don't know what exactly you can "turn off" (in the computer settings), then it might cause you some trouble....

If you haven't done so already, you could try defragmenting the hard-drive. Also, try using the "4 GB patch" too (step #3): http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-updated-on-14-07-2013

Double-click on the patch and choose the (cracked) TS3W.exe in your base game location. Feel free to do the other steps in that guide too, although your game is not "crashing" - it's still recommended to do. Smile 

Good luck !
