Sims 3 Issues. [SOLVED]

Post by anabell on Wed 27 Jul 2011, 03:51

I've had Sims 3 for over a year now and it's worked great until I got the bright idea today to install World Adventures. I had some issues and through searching the forum, I found the issues could be fixed by installing Ambitions. That fixed the previous problem and gave me new problems and through searching again found that it could be fixed by installing Generations and the Ultimate Fix. I followed all the instructions to the letter, the game is completely updated and everything. Now I went to play the game but it's really buggy, there's a lot missing. For example, if I click on a sim it gives me the normal options (friendly... mean... funny... romantic...) and then there's new bubbles but they're blank. I don't know what they're supposed to say but when I click them, nothing happens. If I scroll over my sims Lifetime Happiness, it's blank (there's no words, just the picture of what it is). If I go into buy mode and scroll over something, it's blank. There's just so much missing and I don't know if this is an issue with an update or maybe the order I installed the games in (I was initially only planning to install WA, that's why I went in that order though I read on the forum Generations should have been first). Any ideas?

A solution without needing to uninstall/reinstall would be very much appreciated.

Doesn't help, it was already set that way.

Also, wondering if this might contribute to the problem, when I restart my computer, I get a message saying Origin Installer and the publisher is Electronic Arts. I know this is something related to Sims 3 but as it is not mentioned in any of the guides I always say No. Should I just let it install?

I went ahead and did a full uninstall/reinstall and the game seems to be working now. Thank you both for your help anyways Smile

And thanks for this website and great downloads, you're awesome!

Mod edit: Problem solved, topic closed.
