Strange empty menu. [SOLVED]

Post by persephone325 on Thu Jul 03, 2014 9:29 am

So I installed The Sims 3, and all the expansion packs. Then, I downloaded the crack and fix and applied them. When I start the launcher, it says "Unable to connect to Origin". But other than that, I can boot up the game just fine.

It's when I get to the main menu that there's a problem. Everything is blank. There's no worlds, and when I try to exit, the little pop up menu is blank as well. I've never seen this before, and I'm completely dumbfounded. For some reason, taking a screen shot just comes up blank. I've tried several times, but the same thing keeps happening.

If anyone could help, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thank you all. Smile

Hello,

Have you already tried doing the steps from #2 to #4 here ?   Please do so:

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly



After doing these steps, try re-starting the game. Good luck ! Usually, when this error comes up, it means that the "Ultimate fix" wasn't applied correctly.
