I installed The Sims 3 Katy Perry and now is broken

Post by Oharu on Sun 13 Jul 2014, 14:16

Hello! First of all thank you for your help! I have searched in the forum for other threads with my same problem and I have found this one: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t17143-downloaded-the-sims-3-movie-stuff-now-my-game-is-broken?highlight=unistall+the+sims   but it's not exactly the same.

I did install the Sims 3 like you said in your "must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly", and I have the game updated to 1,67 and with the ultimate fix applied. Thanks to this, I could play the game with no problems. I mean, I actually could play the game perfectly.

But today I downloaded the expansion disk "Katy Perry" from your web too. I also did the same things I did when I installed the other expansions.

And when I played it, it seemed everything was okay. It let me start the game as usual, but when I got past the Katy Perry loading screen all i could see was a black page without my neighborhood nor saved files there. And I couldn't even see the options to close the game. It was very weird. Like this:

And when I saw the launcher, it was as if I did not have all the expansions I had installed (like "4 seasons") and which I played other days with no problems.

And one important thing, when I passed the loading screen, it appeared a message that said that "it could not recognaise the graphic memory" or something like that (I'm sorry I could not copy it). I don't know why it said this when the other days it didn't.

Did I do something wrong? Is it possible that there is a virus in my computer that doesn't allow me to play?

I have been trying to find a solution, but I have found none. I hope you can help me...

Thank you very much for your help and your attention!!

See this here:


You only need to repeat the steps from #2 to #4 correctly. Smile And please ignore the expansion folders of the Ultimate fix; you ONLY need the folder named #crack, exactly as stated in the guide I linked to. Good luck !

P.S turn off your anti-virus software before applying the Ultimate fix.
