Hello,

You have actually opened another topic on this, earlier. Please, next time stick to your OLD topic. I have actually replied there, but you haven't replied back. So next time, please stick in your old topic.

That said, in your case there's nothing much you can do. 2 GB of RAM is not good for a game like Sims 3, and a 32-bit operating system is also bad. You should have at least 4 GB of RAM, and a 64-bit operating system, in order to significantly reduce "error 12".


Also, 21 sims in a household is too much, and you just can't do that if your computer is weak.

The only thing I can suggest is that you SHORTEN your playing sessions, and save often. After the short playing session, exit the game for a while, and then re-start the game again. Sorry I can't offer more.

Hello again,

These random crashes happen occasionally, even with strong computers. And again, there isn't much you can do about it, especially in your case, since your computer barely meets the requirements for The Sims 3.

At first, delete the contents of the Currentgame.sims3 folder, located in My Documents/Electronic Arts. After that, re-start the game again, and play on. But you have lost your progress, and these crashes will probably happen more often, I'm afraid.

But I have now again the save error code 12 and after I try to save it sometimes stops working.

But the fact is that when I am in University it can save at once and after some Sim hours, in which I am back to Sunset Valley it cannot save.

Any suggestions?

That's what I mentioned before - you will get these problems because your computer is not strong enough, and there is nothing you can really do about it, besides what I mentioned already (= shortening the playing sessions, upgrading the computer).
