Hi there, and Welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Smile

Is this the first time you are installing The Sims 3? Or did you have it installed before?
Also, did you get the game from this site? What EPs did you install with it? And do you have any CC, Store Content, or Mods installed?

Sorry for all the questions, but we need to understand your situation a little better for us to be able to help you. Wink

I see. This problem is probably caused by an incomplete uninstallation of the game you had before. I suggest that you take a look at this video and follow its instructions to see if they work for you:

Be sure to let us know if this helped. Good luck! Smile

Look, I followed everything in your "Ultimate Fix" youtube video.
My problems:

1. Since I installed Seasons and Town Life Stuff, my Sims 3 always not responding or it's always automatically closing.
2. When I finished installing the Ultimate Fix, I saw that there's no Seasons and Town Life Stuff folder.
3. There is no Town Life Stuff in the Ultimate Fix folder. Only the Ambitions, Base Game, Fast Lane Stuff, High End Loft Stuff, Late Night, Outdoor Living Stuff, and World Adventures BUT there is a folder called "All expansion packs released after and including Generations".
3. Now, I'm doomed.
4. My Sims 3 gameplay is doomed. I'm finished. My life is finished!

Hi there.  Smile

Please, open a new topic for the problem you are having. Sorry, but we try to keep the forum as organized as possible so different issues for different people should go in their own thread. Wink

After you open the new topic, we'll be glad to try and help you.



Mod edit: since the OP's issue seems resolved, I'll close the thread.

- Carlos
