Weird language - setup and lots of "???????????"

Post by Siris on Sat 14 Mar 2015, 13:39

Hello there.

This problem have been giving me headaches for a while, but maybe some can help? I tried searching for it, but I found no answer or any problem like this.

I've downloaded the sims 3 (all of them), and tried to install them as described. The problem is I understand nothing at all, and it just writes a lot of "???????". When it moves to the next section, where you can choose different languages, it's in a really weird language (and I've checked if it was Russian, which it is in the next step), and  I cannot google the words, which doesn't seem to even be a real language. For example: äáíéÿ. If I just take one of the languages, then the next step is in Russian - I can use Russian, but I just want to play the sims 3 in a other language. Oh my...

I really want to play the games in either Danish or English, but cannot see how I shall see though the words, which doesn't seem like a real language. 

I hope someone knows anything about this, and can help me.

Best regards // Siris

Hi! When you first install the base game it usually asks your desired language from an extensive list, maybe you need to uninstall the game using an advanced tool like "Revo Uninstaller" and ask for it to remove the Sims 3 registry keys, so you start all over again. In my opinion, since it's a new installation, it should be the best way to do it right.

Please, let's know if you got it working or if you need further assistance, and be welcome to our Forum!
