Sims 3 crashes.

Post by burns on Thu 08 Sep 2011, 11:51

Hi,

I bought the Sims 3 game like a few years back, and a while ago, I downloaded Ambitions and Generations. But that was all quite long ago.

A few days back, I decided to play my Sims 3 games again so I installed them back. I had an array of problems before I finally found the fix.

Well, the fix did solve my problems but only temporarily. At first, when I played halfway, my game will suddenly freeze up. The next time I started the game again, I choosed another lot to play in and things went well, until I held a Bachelorette's party. One of the Sims I invited had weird meshes - it was a big pink chunk that messed up the game, so I restarted it. Then my game started freezing up again.

So, I reinstalled all the game again, applied the fix, and loaded it. While I was loading Twinbrook, my game will, again, freeze up less then halfway through the loading bar. I decided to try playing Sunset Valley and after 20 minutes, it still wasn't done loading. There was still a tiny lil' bit left. I decided to restart the game.

Upon opening my launcher, I got this problem: "There was an error during startup. Please see the log for more details."

Any help is really appreciated! Sad


EDIT.
My game crashed while loading any of the worlds. I'm not sure if it's my computer's problem because I used to be able to play the game. I already re-installed my game about 3 times. Any help is really, really appreciated. I really want to play my game. Again, I have the legal copy of The Sims 3, and torrented Ambitions and Generations only. Sad

Specs:
Operating System: Windows Vista Home Basic (6.0, Build 6002)
Processor: AMD Atholon(tm) 64 Processor 3800+, ~2.4HZ
Memory: 3582MB RAM
DirectX Version: DiretX 11

I did place the folders in #Crack to F:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin, alongside with all my other game files. To add, the things I've done- I have turned off my DEP, there's absolutely no custom content or mods, I uninstalled Daemon.

Thank you for your reply! Smile

I've already done the DEP thing before, but I redid it again, this time adding all my expansion packs. But there's a problem; I still can't open my launcher. I get this error message: "There was an error during startup. Please see the log for more details.", then I'm informed that Sims3Launcher has stopped working. WhatDidUJustCallMe?

Hello,
It may just be the launcher. My game often crashes when I try to start with the launcher, so I start my game without the launcher and I never experience any problems.

Hello,
Sometimes problems can be solved by simply downloading and installing the G4TW version of the base game rather than your legit version. All G4TW expansions have been tested with that version of the game.
You may want to try it.
