Sims 3 Crashing After Fix. [SOLVED]

Post by annefrank on Sun 04 Sep 2011, 07:01

So I applied the Ultimate Fix (I did it all right too) and all the EP's are installed and stuff, but Sims keeps crashing like 20 seconds after entering Live Mode. This happens even when I'm not running it with mods or any cc. I also did the DEP thing and added ALL the exe's for ALL the EP's so I don't think that's it either. I'm not sure what to do anymore. Should I just uninstall and reinstall? Would that mean I'd have to download all the games and EP's again?

EDIT:I have fixed the problem. something happened with the DEP. I can now play the game without it crashing in live mode. However, when I go back to Edit Town the loading screen stays there forever and I have to just close Sims. any idea what might be causing this problem?

Hello,

Do you have any Mods and/or Custom Content added to the game?

Hmm, it wasn't anything like that. I don't know, it hasn't crashed though so I guess that problem is fixed. But now none of the little pictures for places or people show up...
whoops. I just tried saving the game it's stuck on the saving screen -______-

Hello,

So... If I understand correctly, you have NO Custom Content and/or DLC's / Mods at all?

Okay, there's just something terribly wrong with my game. The launcher keeps crashing too. Might have something to do with the fact I accidentally downloaded two Hidden Springs. -______- I think I'm just going to have to uninstall and reinstall? Or would it help if I applied the fix again.

yeah I tried running the game at first with cc and it was bad, and then i ran it again without cc and it was still bad and loading really slow. that never really happened until i installed townl life so could it be that I just have too much cc installed? I don't think so because I even compressorized everything before I even ran the game...

Hello,

Hmmm... weird, you must be sure that you've really uninstalled EVERYTHING, so also the "Mods" folder and all Store Update and CC shown on the game's launcher.

Ohhhh, okay well I'll try that. You're right. It might be something I iinstalled through the launcher. But if that doesn't work I think I'm just going to uninstall and reinstall everything

Ok, so with no packages or any cc installed through the launcher, the game loads extremely fast (of course).
with just the launcher cc installed, the game loads extremely fast still
with the packages installed and none of the launcher cc installed, the games loads VERY slow.
I've tried the 50-50 method, but I wasn't sure which packages were causing such a slow loading time. The game would still load slow with only like 5 packages installed

EDIT: I meant that the game would load faster as I got rid of more and more packages. So I guess it is my amount of packages that's causing the problem. But again, this makes no sense seeing as how I had just compressorized all of them

//EDIT

also, it says that I have two hidden springs installed in the game when youcan choose which neighborhood to start in. that list has two hidden springs
