'Save' & 'Save As' Doesn't do anything. HELP ! [CLOSED]

Post by xCharlieee on Mon 02 Dec 2013, 23:16

Hello.

My game used to lag, used to crash, caused by mods.
I uninstalled everything, reinstalled everything, without mods, without cc, and for the first time ever it doesn't do anything wrong! Yay!

Now, after 2 weeks of playing (like 2 hours a day) i click the 'save' button, and i can hear the sound of clicking the button, but it doesn't save.
The game just goes on. I can click everything from the menu but nothing does something.

Sorry for my english, i only speak dutch & spanish so my english is not that good.
Haha!


Can someone help me? Please.. Sad


Greetings!

Hello,

Try going into "edit-town" mode. When you are prompted whether you want to save your game, click on "Save".

See if that works.

Sounds like an 'interesting' glitch. I think I had a similar problem with another user in the past, which is why I suggested the thing with "edit-town" mode. Either way, this is a very rare glitch, and I can't really think of any cause of this.

It might sounds too obvious, but I hope you have enough filespace on your hard-drive ?

Try saving your sim(s) into the bin in "edit-town" mode. Exit the game to the main menu, create a new savefile, and put your sim(s) from the bin into it...


Also, the following might be worth a try: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t9396-ts3-save-files-cleaner

Download that tool in Lady ElDi's first post. And backup your savefiles before applying this.


If that doesn't help either, try un-installing the base game. Re-boot the computer afterwards. Then, re-install the base game, re-apply the latest manual patch (version 1.63), and at the end, re-apply the latest Ultimate fix.

Well, it's good to hear that ! Smile 

Now that I come to think of it, the other user who had that problem clicked on the "quit"-button. She was then prompted whether she wanted to save before exiting the game. And this "method" seemingly worked for her. However, this seems irrelevant in your case, though.

Theoretically, anti-virus software can interfere with the saving process of the game; maybe that was the cause ?

Either way, I'm glad it worked out for you now. Feel free to open a new topic if you have any other questions. This topic is closed.

Happy simming ! The Sims Plumbob 1
