Keeps crashing.. Again.

Post by Mal0utt on Thu 25 Sep 2014, 00:55

Hi, everyone.

My Sims 3 Pets did not work at all when I started, but I got help from you lovely people, and it went smoothly!
But now, all of a sudden the game keeps freezing and crashing whenever I try to go to a family.

I just finished all the 'Fix'-steps, like the first time. But now, it doesn't work.

Any idea what the problem might be?

Does this happen in only one specific family, or in every one? Have you tried creating a new save to see if the problem is the same?

Please, go to Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 and backup this folder. You can do this by moving it somewhere else or renaming it, just make sure that there's no 'The Sims 3' folder in that location anymore.
After that, start the game again. This will create a new folder. Then check if the problem persists.

I see...
Did something change between the game working fine, and then crashing? A new patch, new EP...
Did you also make sure to add all of the .exe filed of the folder to the DEP? And did you apply the 4GB Patch (if possible)?

Hello,


http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t17208-sims-3-has-stopped-working#118442

Even if you say you did that already, have another look at that post by me. In particular, pay attention to the application of the "4 GB patch". Also, check out the post to learn how to clear out all the cache files.

Next...can you also try lowering your in-game graphics settings ?

I can try that, yeah. But now there's another problem.
I tried to re-install it, and followed your installation-guide, but got this error twice.

Hello again,

Make a NEW folder somewhere, and re-extract ALL contents of the "Pets" .RAR file (with WinRAR), into that empty folder you just created. Re-start the installation from within the folder. Good luck again !

Alternatively, you could have also downloaded the torrent from G4TW named "Pets [FIXED]", since that error was remedied in this newer Pets-release. But yes, take your time. Smile

Tried the insert-disk-fix, but it didn't work, so I'm downloading Pets [FIXED] right now.
