Simport Help...freezing entire game.

Post by Summerbear5 on Tue 03 Mar 2015, 00:46

Hello,

So I'm having a problem using Simport. I outright bought the base game years ago when it first came out and it's registered to my account. However I am using G4TW version of The Sims 3 Complete Collection.
I'm logging into Simport using my account that has the base game registered so there is no problems there. The problem I am having is I'm only able to use Simport once per play session. The first time I open it I'm able to go to all the tabs and accept request but if I close the window and try to reopen it a second time the whole entire game will freeze. I loose everything because I'm not able to save. I've tried to update to the game but the game is already completely updated. I used The Sims 3 Ultimate fix to make sure everything was fine there yet it still keeps freezing. Don't know what else to do. Like I said it's the second time during a single play session that it will freeze the entire game without notice.

Any Suggestions?

Hello,


Unfortunately I do not own one single legit Sims 3 game, hence I cannot test this "Simport"-feature myself. But have you considered the possibility that it might be glitched ?

Was it working in the past ? And the "Ultimate fix" for Sims 3 ONLY ensures that you can play the game without a phsyical CD. That is ALL the Ultimate fix does. Also, try doing all the suggestion from this post, like adding the Sims 3 .exe files to the DEP exclusions, the 4GB patch, and so on:

Good luck !

Thank you for responding. It has never worked fully for me. I cleared all my caches. I even asked my Simport friends and they aren't having the same issues as me. They are having their own issues but it's mostly just lag and slow loading. I just started using Simport so I was excited to try it out now not so much lol. I'll try your suggestions and get back to you if it's not working.

EDIT: Still not working. I thought the 4gb patch worked but it's still doing the same thing. I reapplied the update and it said I already had it. I also cleared all my caches... it was working fine for a little bit now acting up again same thing. No error message and not closing just frozen there.

//EDIT

Is it at all possible I need to open ports on my router? Just a thought but I haven't seen anything on this threw my searches. I wouldn't think so since I can use it successfully one time per game play.

EDIT: Reinstalled entire game on main drive instead of secondary drive applied all the patches including the 4gb patch and I'm still having the same problem.

EDIT: I set compatibility to run as administrator (didn't think I needed to because I am the administrator account already on this computer) so far it seems to be working. I haven't tested it over a long period so I don't know for sure if it's a permanent fix.

Sorry for not getting back to you,


I did not have that much time recently though. As I hinted, I don't really have any experience with this "SimPort". Yes, the "run as Administrator"-function can help fix some issues, in a number of games, but as of now, I've heard that mostly being the case with older games (from the early 2000s or so).

Good to hear that this worked for you though - thanks for sharing this ! Smile  I will leave the topic open, so that you may post back about any issues.
