The Sims 3 Freezing

Post by Metjuw on Mon 18 Aug 2014, 16:21

Hello all,

I am having problems with my Sims 3 game, it's freezing a lot even though I have over 200 constant fps.. I tried to include both the Overwatch and Register mods but still keeps freezing and it's really annoying since sometimes it's unplayable.. I did not try Gamebooster since my pc is a high end desktop computer, I thought it would be useless also in the Packages folder I don't just have the Overwatch and Register mods but I have other packages including the store content packages.

I also have a friend who has the same problem as mine but with a laptop not a desktop pc has the minimum requirements to run the Sims 3 tried the 4GB patch, also included the Overwatch and Register mods, with Gamebooster too but still keeps freezing and crashed one time, also after exiting university and enroute to home my friend is getting a crash every time and at the same spot.. In this case, in my friend's Packages folder there are only the Overwatch & Register mods no other packages.

Any kind of feedback for both queries would be really appreciated! Smile

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Matthew

Hello, 


Sorry for the late reply. But please remember that we're currently in a difficult and stressful situation on the forum: more and more people are coming now, in need of help. Many of the "senior" and hence experienced team members - me including - are not regularly available at the moment. The new team members still have to get "used" to all that; not to mention all the real-life obligations.

About your problem: how exactly did you apply the "4 GB patch" ? Please double-click on that patch and apply it to the TS3W.exe in your base game location. Usually C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Wait for the message "executable successfully patched". Then see if that improves anything in your game. My current (old) computer, compared to what appears to be yours, is weaker, but I can run TS3 with all EPs/SPs, store content and other CC fluently at highest settings. So hardware shouldn't be an issue.

Next, please do not double-post either. Wink  Instead, use the "edit"-button on your post after it shows up, and wait for a reply, even if it may take longer, or use the search function if you don't seem to get a reply within a reasonable time.

Are you playing on Isla Paradiso?

Cuz that's an town make causes much lagg

Maybe this will help ^_^

Try to save you're game over times (like over 25-40 Min)

Try to dont use to much cheats (Make everyone know me can make the game lagg)

Game can freeze also if one of you're sims is stuck (on a island or something)

The game lag in Isla Paradiso usually happens mostly with lower-end computers, which is not the case with the OP. Wink  My current (old) computer is weaker than the one from the OP, but I don't get any lag in Isla Paradiso either.
