The time freeze but animations are still moving

Post by woopwoop on Sat 14 Jun 2014, 20:57

Edit: I solved it by uninstalling everything except The sims 3 basic game and then installed the EP's I wanted the most (Into the future, Univeristy, Late night, Master Suite and HELS)
So I assume there was something wrong with one of the other EP's




Hello
I recently installed sims 3 and some expansion packs and I've been experiencing a quite odd lagg/freeze.
When I play the game all of the sudden everything stops but the animation are still going (for example the zzz when sleeping).

I started with installing the basic game and then all the expansions. After that I patched it and then used the Ultimate fix.
I've tried to turn in DEP. I've changed my graphics-card to enable tripe buffering and vertical sync.
I've installed the 4gb patch i've also tried to edit sims3.ini to allow more RAM and changes graphicrules.sgr to instead of 4-3-2-1.
Might have tried some other stuff as well that I can't think of right now.

Anyone else got some ideas on what to do?

Computer specs:
CPU: Intel I7 3610QM (2.3Ghz)
GFX: Nvidia Gefore GTX670m (3GB)
250GB SSD

It's a laptop if you didn't figure it out.

Hello and sorry for the late reply,


Does that ALWAYS happen, or is it something random ? Do you also have any mods installed ?

Also, in My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3, delete the following stuff:


-CASPartCache.package
-compositorCache.package
-scriptCache.package
-simCompositorCache.package
-socialCache.package
-plus the contents of the folders "WorldCaches" & "Thumbnails"



Re-start the game then and see if anything improved. You may even turn off your anti-virus program completely before playing The Sims 3.

Good luck !
