Sims 3 stopped responding. [SOLVED]

Post by Baggiee on Thu 24 Jul 2014, 19:48

I started Sims 3 nearly after 5 months. First I opened the Launcher and encountered a similar problem of not responding and windows forces me to close the program, after a span of 5 to 6 hours i re-launched and then it worked all fine. i played for 2.5 hrs. 
Today i launched it and faced the same problem of Not responding. It was only yesterday it worked fine no new cc were installed. I don`t know what to do, I`ve tried running it windowed mode, checked my drivers, checked for updates of Sims 3, but everything turned out to be a failure.

It does nt go past loading screen. it takes much time for the world to load and then freezes. scratch 

I`ve nearly 10 CC installed, i did not delete them, coz i don't know what the original problem is, as it worked normally yesterday. 

Pls do show me a solution for this.

I`m using Windows 8.1 and my drivers are up-to-date.

I have encountered the same problem, I've done everything Carlos have written in that thread but nothing works. I've tried the Ultimate Fix, didn't work either. It only worked when I changed fullscreen = 1 to 0, but I really want to play in fullscreen  Crying or Very sad

Nothing Worked its still the same. I re installed everything and applied new crack tooo.
but no use.

i observed dedicated memory of my display device is 0 MB.
Some thread over search told it will create such problem for games. I don't know.
But it never created any pbm like this.
I played this game like forever with same settings.

What can i do?

I'm, sorry to hear that my solutions didn't work for you, but other than that, I'm afraid there isn't much else to suggest...have you tried running the game with the TS3W.exe, in the base game location ? 

Right-click on the TS3W.exe and choose "run as Administrator". Also, out of interest, have you also started a FRESH savegame, with new sims ? If so, does the same happen there too ?

i`ll try it.

Yes its a new game. 
i have deleted and installed everything. 

something here caught my attention.
My windows 8 OS has two user accounts, both are admin`s. this game is particularly not working in my regular account. I tried opening it in another account and it worked well and i played too.
 Smile 

It totally unfathomable. I don't know what the problem is with this user account.

Any way thanks for the suggestion i`ll try running TS3W.exe

Thank you

Hello again,


Next thing to try: how much free space do you have left on your C: drive ? Please make sure to free up some space if necessary, AND make sure to defragment the hard-drive too.

So can you still play the game in the Administrator account then ? If you can, tehn I would leave it - for now - as it is, since I'm slowly running out of explanations ... also, if you are playing on a laptop, this might also be a reason: laptops aren't made for gaming purposes, usually at least.

Well, at least you can "somehow" play the game. Smile  Feel free to open a new thread, whenever you like, if you have another problem. Until then: have fun ! Topic closed.
