Sims 3 Not Working-Yes, I've tried everything

Post by hinata093 on Wed 05 Feb 2014, 18:24

I'm getting the same bubble I've been getting since I downloaded Island Paradise: "Sims 3 Not Working." I've been to the "if the game crashes do this" page a dozen times and tried everything listed there. I even visited the one updated on Jan 7th and still went through all the steps. I've been to separate websites and tried their solutions. I even changed the resolution of my screen all the way down to 600 x 800. I still get the message. No, I don't have mods. Please help. It's starting to get on my nerves.

Have you applied the Ultimate Fix?
What version is your game?
Where is your base game from?

Yes, I have applied the Ultimate Fix. My game is the most recent version- 1.67.2. I think I got my base game from a CD. I used a CD for World Adventures too. Everything else is torrented though.

That shouldn't be a problem.
Please take the files from the #Crack folder of the Ultimate Fix and copy/replace them again to C:\Program Files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

I did that and it was running fine until, at the save screen, it told me that it was having an Error 12. And then, when I tried to pause the game and save it, it did the whole "Sims game isn't working" thing.  I used CFF Explorer before to fix Error 12, but it still hasn't fixed the "Sims isn't working" issue.

//EDIT

I used CFF explorer again and my game seems to be running well enough. Thank you! If I experience any more problems, I'll be sure to post again. You can close the topic now ^_^

Just shortly (before closing this), have a look at this topic, with general tips on how to cope with save errors:

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t4523-the-sims-3-save-errors-fix-error-code-12-13-15-16-updated-24-11-2012


Also, if your Windows is 64-bit AND if your computer has 4 GB of RAM or more, download the "4 GB patch" from here. After downloading, double-click on that 4 GB patch and in the next prompt, choose the TS3W.exe in your base game location. Usually, that's C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

Note that this method will not work if your Windows 8 is 32-bit and/or if you have less than 4 GB of RAM on your computer.


See if any of this reduces your occurrence of "Error 12". Smile
