Game crashes unexpectedly

Post by Zenialiv on Mon 21 Apr 2014, 10:09

Hello.
Since I installed all of the expansions and started playing, my game would just freeze at a random point in the game, so I'd have to shut it down myself.
I thought I'd just live with it, but I seriously spend more time saving my game and restarting it, than actually playing.
At first it would freeze and go back every few seconds, and I learned I just had to type ''resetsim *'' in the box, and then that stopped.
But this is ''permanently'' freezing, I can't go to desktop view or do anything before I force-quit the game.

I have tried deleting my cache files, and I don't have any core mods.

Please help  Noob

Perhaps you RAM doesn't really support much content from sims. Try lowering your setting and see if that helps?

Yes, but I don't think that's it - I have 8 gb ram  Smile

Hello,

Please try removing and CCs/mods and try your game again. Crashes are frequent when CCs/mods are incompatible.

If you have none of those, you can try this following method:
1) Navigate to Documents> Electronic Arts> The Sims 3 > Saves
2) Back up those files in a new folder some where.
3) Delete the "Electronic Arts" folder in your "Documents".
4) Run your game again. This creates a new Electronic Arts folder.
5) Replace your saves in the right folder.

This method helps to basically "reset" the game and clean up any bad files that may be causing the crashes.

I hope that helps!
