the sims 3 crashes whenever i try to save

Post by rebecca77 on Sun 23 Feb 2014, 04:29

ever since i updated to 1.66, my sims game will crash every time i save. i just updated it to 1.67 and used the ultimate fix and everything, but it still crashes whenever i save. i know it's not my computer specs because i've been playing the sims for years and it only started crashing while saving since i updated.

i only play one family and have been since about september, so the file size is quite big.
i really don't want to have to move them to another town, because some of the children from that family have moved out of the house and i like to check up on them.
here's what's in that save file


the last time i was able to save it was today, but that was only because i deleted the first game file and the picture shown above is the backup folder i renamed. but still, it won't save anymore.

UPDATE: i just tried to open the launcher to check what expansions i have and it crashes everytime i try to open it now... so could you please help with that problem too?

i have seasons, island paradise, ambitions, and generations. all of them including the base game were taken from g4tw.

thanks!

The Launcher part is weird. Can you still launch the game by itself?
For the save problem, you can try to use Error Trap by Nraas.
