Cannot save game - freezes

Post by xllmtx on Sat 15 Mar 2014, 20:19

Hi guys, for the past week I've been unable to save a game. Every time I try, the game freezes as the "saving" icon appears. I've tried different save games, it's still the same. I have overwatch installed & the mod to fix the 'fixer upper' car. Please help!

Are you getting any errors? Usually, when your freezes and is unable to save it's due to not having enough space on your computer. I would also consider your mods, if you have any, have you updated them? If you find yourself with no luck, try removing the mods and CC folder.

Probably your CC (Mods in particular) is outdated? Make sure your mod is up-to-date with your current patch.

Hello,


Besides what sims3hope suggested, what did you do BEFORE this "glitch" occurred ? Did you change anythign about your computer ?


Does the same happen when you completely turn off your anti-virus/anti-malware software before playing The Sims 3 ?  




If I remember anything else, I'll get back to you. Good luck for now though !

I don't seem to be getting any errors, other than this. Since I posted here, it now only happens with one of my save games, the others now seem to be working OK. It's just the one game I actually want to play, won't save  Help

Hello and sorry for the late reply,

Go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Saves. There, look for the following folder and MOVE it to the desktop:

(Name of the savegame you want to play).sims3

Next, look if there is a folder that looks like this:

(Name of the savegame you want to play).sims3.backup


If you have such a folder, remove the .backup ending in the folder's name, so that it "looks" like the folder you just moved to the desktop. Restart the game afterwards and see if you can properly play and save in that savegame. Good luck !
