No text in start menu [SOLVED]

Post by Nephele on Thu 11 Sep 2014, 01:33

Hi! So I was wondering if someone could help me with this problem.

I've installed the base game, Supernatural and Into the Future (from the games4theworld piratebay account). I installed Into the future last, so naturally it's the game I'll be playing. The installation seemed to go completely fine (used the manual patch, the fix, everything) but then when I start the game I get this:

Spoiler:


(sorry for the crappy quality ahaha, prt sc wasn't working)

I can't see any text when I click select a town, neither when I click the ... symbol to open the menu.
Any thoughts?

Hi there, and Welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Smile

This problem is usually caused by outdated cracks. Did you make sure to download the latest Ultimate Fix, and that you applied it to the correct folder? It should go to Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. If your game is from Origin (I didn't really understand if you downloaded all from here or only Into the Future), it should go to Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

Please, re-download the Ultimate Fix and then apply it again to see if this fixes your problem.

Let us know how it goes. Good luck! Very Happy

I am having the same problem, however I've already applied the ultimate fix and it's still not working. I have the base game, pets, supernatural, seasons and university installed (in that order, if it matters). My game used to work like a charm when i didn't have pets, supernatural and university installed, but when i installed those my build/buy kept loading and I couldn't even exit the game in any way other than to resort to task manager. So I did a clean install, followed all the steps, and now I have this problem. I start up the game though TS3W.exe since I don't have an .iso or real life disk. I'm starting to lose hope.

Hi there! Smile

Please, open a new topic for your problem. Even if it's the same one, you should always open a new topic unless it was already yours to begin with. Wink

As this problem is solved, I'll go ahead and close the topic now.
