New member here, still huge lag and freeze issues after following installation guides

Post by eteej on Sun 26 Jan 2014, 20:42

Hi guys,

Posting on behalf of my partner.

She has complained for ages about lots of lag and freezing on her game, so I decided to install your fix and follow your installation guides.
She says that the game is still the same if not worse since I installed the ultimate fix and that the game has basically not changed at all.

I have followed your guides and installed the fix as per instruction. Has anyone got a workaround or a way that I can get it to work smoothly

(there is a FPS counter that I have put on, its constantly at 60 it just freezes randomly for anywhere between 1 and 30 seconds)

sorry if this is not the right place for this post, just trying to get the game running smooth so she can stop chewing my ear off,

Cheers

Hello eteej. The fix is just for cracking the game so you can run it without disks, it doesn't do anything for helping speed things up or anything else for the game. Does she have any custom content? And how many expansions does she have?

Hello there, thanks for the response. She has all of the expansions I believe and she does use custom content. Interestingly she said it was better after I applied your fix, but I assume this is just because the system isn't relying on reading from a disk. She has the Sims installed on an SSD but this doesn't seem to have helped either.

Have her try renaming "Documents\Electronic Arts\Sims 3". This will remove all of her custom content and saves, and make the game start from fresh. If this helps, the lag is probably from all of her cc. If it doesn't help much, she may want to consider uninstalling a few expansions.
