Sims 3 won't load any text in start menu. [SOLVED]

Post by Mikki0818 on Thu 23 Oct 2014, 18:48

I'm having the same problem as http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t17821-no-text-in-start-menu-solved but I tried The Sims 3 Ultimate Fix and it doesn't work, the ep that did this was Island Paradise, I got it from here and I also have Pets and Supernatural from extremezone (both have been reinstalled now) and Generations from here, as well as Night Life and High-End Loft stuff from Origin that came with my paid base game.

Hello Mikki0818 and welcome to the forum,


Please make sure to repeat the steps from #2 to #4, here, and do it exactly as described:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly


If your base game was bought from Origin, apply step #4 to: C:\Program files(x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.


Good luck and keep us posted !

As I stated, I DID use the Ultimate Fix, but my version  already is 1.67 WhatDidUJustCallMe? I really don't want to have to reinstall this, it takes overnight where I'm at.

Hi there, and welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Very Happy

Another possible fix for that issue can be found in this topic here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t859-the-sims-3-text-balloons-not-showing-missing-fix

Please, try that and let us know if it works. Good luck!

I know you said it. Wink  But the thing is this: experience shows that in 99.9 % of these cases, something was done wrong. Please double-check those steps from #2 to #4 I mentioned. There really is no other explanation for this.


Do NOT do anything else; only do these steps from #2 to #4. You ONLY need the #crack folder from the Ultimate fix, and none of the other folders.


//EDIT

What SeoY posted happens EXTREMELY rare, but yes, it's a possible alternative solution.

I double checked my fix, it just doesn't work, I'm about to lauch with SeoY's solution, I'll edit if it worked

//EDIT
It didn't work, problem still persists, it won't let me screenshot the game like it used too.

//EDIT

I consulted my dad about this, (He's worked on my sims once) he doesn't know of any other solutions, I'm going to apply the crack for the 3rd time and if it doesn't work, reinstall it.

//EDIT

Found that my iso file for Island Paradise was still mounted after unmounting that before applying the crack I'm crossing my fingers

//EDIT2

No luck, I'm applying the crack, I'm near in tears about losing my Ackerman family, based off an anime that I like

//EDIT

Solved!!! Unmounted the iso and reapplied the crack again and they're all back!

Please, remember that posting multiple times in a row is considered spamming, and it's against the Forum rules. Instead, edit a single post to add more information by clicking "Edit" at the top of it. Wink

It's good that you were able to solve the issue! Is there anything else we can help you with at the moment or can we close the topic? Smile

No, and I forgot about that, I didn't know if I should just add it or add the //EDIT tag again.

Well, you can do it however you want. Smile
Generally just writing Edit: or Update: should make clear that you added more information.

I'll go ahead and close the topic then. If you ever encounter any other issues, don't doubt to come back! Very Happy
