Infinite Loading Screen [SOLVED]

Post by ANDREWjkl on Fri 30 Jan 2015, 00:29

Hello, downloaded yesterday the Fix + GP, made a fresh installation of TS4, took off all mods and such.
After installing apllied Ultimate Fix, Loaded everything ok but when hitting play to go to manage worlds there's a infinite loading screen.

Some considerations:

My game isnt installed in the default folder of the installation program, e.g. instead of C:\Program Files\Eletronic Arts\... It's in a Custom destination.
My Pc can play this with no problem at all! i5 3570k + R9 290 + 8GB Ram
Deleted all my saves, as I said I made a fresh installation of the game!

Thank You if stop by to help! ^^

Hello ANDREWjkl,


If there was a problem with your install location, you probably wouldn't be able to run the game at all. Also, my computer is weaker than yours, but I can play the game at max. settings with no lag or issues whatsoever. 

Have you tried renaming the folder "The Sims 4", located in Documents/Electronic Arts ? Also, can you try running the game as Administrator (right-click, select "run as Administrator) ?

Still nothing, made both of the sugestions and no progess, if only there was a log archive to analise it.

Sorry for the late reply,


If I were to make a guess, I would hint at the anti-virus program(s) you have. They might have received new "virus signature updates" and are hence messing with the crack of TS4. In which case (I hope you already added the install location of the game to the "exclusions" ?), you should try re-extracting the contents of your Ultimate fix .RAR, directly into the install location of the game. Remember, extract the stuff from the .RAR directly into the install location.

Then try the game again.

Already done it, when I had installed 3DM version, I thinking about going back to TS3 because this is getting quite silly!

Sorry I couldn't help more in your case. Sometimes it really seems that the game either works or it doesn't.

If anything does change, do let us know though ! Smile

You did all you could! Since this is "only" happening to me there must sth wrong with the installation or anything else, and this is rather strange the game was working properly before this last fix and before this fresh install I made.
But there's nothing certain.

Ty for the help!

Have you tried rolling back to a previous ultimate fix to see if that may be the problem?

Yes, I have, and still no progress, even tried getting old updates from RELOADED.
Ty for asking though! ^^

//EDIT

UPDATE!

Got it working! It seems there was a problem with the G4TW so I downloaded the RELOADED.
About the G4TW Release when I choose to install into my K drive the setup forces the game to installed into my C drive which there's no space available, I only use this HD for my PC system and some programs, my K, D and H drive are for huge programs such as videos(TV series), Games and etc...
These two pic what is the issue happening to me!
Ty

Thanks for letting us know ! Though that looks highly weird (you could have also moved the game install folder, and then edited a few registry entries, in order to have it on a different drive).

If the theory is that the problem was due to low filespace, you will need to free up space anyway sooner or later, because by default, your saves, mods, CC and the like will be saved on the C: drive still. 


//EDIT

Also, it would be a good idea to have a few extra GBs of free file space on your C: drive, in order to ensure a degree of (operating) system stability.

Yes I know, but the Documents folder can be copied to any Drive and it works, it's a Windows function.
About the registry, I have done it, and didn't worked.

Do you mean this here ?
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t17437-redirecting-the-username-folder-the-sims-3-to-a-different-location

The reason I usually don't mention this method is because of the things that can go wrong, if you let your guard down, for even a second. You can screw around with the "symbolic link" itself, or the moved folder, etc. This method that I described is mainly intended for people who absolutely know what they are doing. I definitely don't recommned this for the average user.

And even so, if you don't have enough filespace for Sims 4, then you are really running low on space.

As for re-installing, note that from a technical point-of-view, both Games4TheWorld's game and the one from RELOADED are the same. Hence you might have been successful with re-installing the G4TW one too. 


But it's good to hear that your problem is solved now, anyways. Do you need anything else or can I close the thread ?
