Sims 3 Crashes after startup!

Post by RyanXHunter on Tue 06 Sep 2011, 15:54

hello guys

i have the legal copy of the sims 3 base game and i have downloaded all expansions (Except town life). i installed generations first and installed the new patch. then i installed the rest of the expansions and did the ULTIMATE FIX on them all. all seems well untill i click play on the game launcher then after that it just goes to a blank screen and crashes and have to use task manager to close it!

Any ideas on what the problem is?? everything is updated and the base game is at 1.24

Thanks.

Hello!

You should check your video card and the RAM Memory.
You need a pretty good video card, for a proper functioning (Same with RAM).

You should check if your video card is updated, too.

If you have a good video card (updated), and 1.5-2GB RAM, and still isn't working, I suggest you to download the EPs and the Base-Game from our site.

Good luck! Smile

Thanks for the reply.

my computer is good enough to run sims 3 and all EP's. and apparently your sims 3 and the legal copy make no difference, and do i need town life stuff if i already have generations??

Hello!

You should download Base-Game and other EPs from our site, will be more compatible. (You combined your legal Base-Game with pirated EPs)

Good luck! Very Happy

Hello,
I think your problem could be with the launcher rather than the DEP. I'm running the game on XP myself and using the launcher for anything is something to cringe about at my end!
I would try starting the game without the launcher before trying anything else.

i did i already applied the ultimate fix to every expansion i have, i didnt apply the fix to town life because i dont want to use that EP. i did with generations and the rest... i used your youtube tutorial.

//EDIT

sorry do i apply the fix after or before the patch update? or does it not make a difference?

//EDIT

EDIT: all is well have got it working forgot to apply the crack from the Town life/generations folder of the fix to base game. thankyou guys alot. ONE more quick question, will i be able to add custom content to the game and .package files???

Hello,

Glad you found the problem. I hope you enjoy playing the game!
The Store Updates can all be found here: mediafire.com ?y8uy4gu2y8jqt
Also, you can add (non-official) Mods and Custom Content, but I recommend being careful with those, as they might mess up your game. I recommend adding them in groups of 5 and then test the game. If you have any problems, see which one is causing the problem and delete that one.

Good luck and have fun playing!
