No Sim info after loading save game

Post by JWall421 on Mon 27 Jan 2014, 19:40

I downloaded the manual update (1.67) and the latest Ultimate Fix. After installing both, loading the game and a save went just fine, but there is no info for my sim- no money, no lifetime goal, no wishes, and the sim panels do not pop out like they should. When I go to build/buy, the money shows up, but when I try to buy something it says insufficient funds. Should I try reapplying the fix or something? (I have all the expansions and stuff packs, and the most recent downloads for the store stuff, with the most recent store fix.) Also, I did update my graphics driver before doing the game update and fix, could that have anything to do with it?

Hi there, can you try starting a new game instead of the saved one sometimes it may be corrupted.

Hello,

Go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Saves and see if there are the following folders:

1) (Name of your savefile).sims3 -> delete that folder first.

2) (Name of your savefile).sims3.backup -> after you've deleted the above folder, just remove the .backup ending in that folder, so that it looks like the one you just deleted.


Re-start the game then and see if anything improved. If not (or if you don't even have a folder with the .backup ending) then I'm afraid you'll have to stick with the new savegame. You should regularly backup your savefiles to a safe place, like an external hard-drive, or a USB-flashdrive, if possible.

I hope this helps you ! Smile 

P.S. Just backup the whole "Saves"-folder (My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3) to a safe location.
