No text or Loading Screen Pictures - Please Help! [SOLVED]

Post by Hanakazari on Thu 19 Dec 2013, 23:07

I've installed the games before and I've never encountered this problem. I installed them all without issue, applied the manual patch, and the Ultimate Fix and started the game. And the loading screen is black. All I can see is the green loading bar and the sliding text and the bottom, but they never slide away, they just pile on each other and leave streaks of text as they go. When that's finished, the world list is visible, but no other text is. Some text is visible in options, but any age sliders or describing text or drop down menus are blank. Even all the texts for the weather and supernatual beings are gone in the options. I haven't started playing past this point. After having the menu screen open for a while (while busy doing something else) it shut down my computer.

I've even ran the game without CC and it was the same. I reapplied the patch and crack and result was the same. The only thing I'm worried that might be the problem is that when I was installing World Adventures I did apply Crack 2 because it wouldn't allow me to continue without it. I didn't apply the last crack, I just updated the game, and copy and pasted something that isn't a usual crack. 

All my Sims 3 are Games4TheWorld Games, and all my Mods are up to date(not that that matters since the game runs the same with or without CC).

Hello,

Can you make sure to upate your graphics drivers, if you haven't done that yet ?

Also, if that doesn't help, try this 'solution':

1. Go to My documents/Electronic Arts and rename the folder "The Sims 3", into anything you like. Just change the folder's name.

2. Un-install just the base game, then re-boot the computer, and re-install the base game.

3. After that, re-do the steps from 2 to 4 here, exactly as they are described: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

4. Bo back to My documents/Electronic Arts and rename the folder "The Sims 3" back to normal again.

5. Start the game and see if the same happens.

Good luck and keep me updated !
