Unable to start game service initialization failed (0x02957b48)

Post by zain on Mon 07 Jul 2014, 17:30

Hi,

I'm new in this website, so excuse me for anything i did wrong.

So as the title says, i  have the error message coming whenever i open the Sims 3 game.
everything was normal first, i used to have the no disk problem, so i used the Sims 3 fix from this site, and it all went great. but the next morning, i opened the Sims 3 and the screen went black, where i can still see the mouse, that's all, nth else, so i click in the keyboard "Alt+Tab" to force stop Sims 3, then the error message appear "Unable to start game service initialization failed (0x02957b48)"
please help :c
i tried everything on this site and other sites but nth seems to change this.
also my expansion packs are (windows 7):
world adventure
pets
seasons
Ambition

and if there is any solution that works except to re-install the Sims 3 again, because i lost the disks and the only disk i own is Ambition :c

Hello,


Are you sure you applied the steps from #2 to #4 here, correctly ?

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


Also...you could theoretically try un-installing your base game only, and then re-booting the computer. Then re-install the base game, and re-apply the steps from #2 to #4 from the guide I linked to. 


Good luck - and do report back to us about your progress ! Smile
