the sims 3 closes. [SOLVED]

Post by elliotminorgirl on Sat 10 Sep 2011, 22:21

hi i installed the ultimate fix and my sims 3 still closes so came on here and read through all the other treads of people with the same problem and tried every fix the only one that works is to disable the AGP Texture Acceleration but that only worked for one day i played on it for hours and the next day i went to play on it it started closing down again. i have no mods or cc i have tried running it without them and it still closes. i tried windowed and it still closes.

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-update-8-06-2011
i tried everything listed here as i said only one thing worked but only for a day Help i want to play my Sims without worrying that i will lose everything i just did since the last save.
thank you

//EDIT

i tried updating my graphics card but it says its already up to date. i know my computer is compatible with the game i sent the game specs to a computer shop on ebay and they told me i would need a graphic card update so i paid extra so they could do that just so i could play the sims 3

Hello,

So I assume you did have CC and Mods? If yes, you might not have deleted them all correctly. These kind of problems without any errors are usually caused by incompatible Mods / CC. Please completely delete the "Mods" folder in your "My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3" folder and delete all other kind of custom stuff.

Hello,

Are you sure you added ALL the game's .exe files to the DEP? ALL of them.

Hello,

Hmmm... weird. Are you really 100% sure you never downloaded ANYTHING extra for the game? A piece of clothing for the game, Mods, Custom stuff/Content?

Hello,
I'm going out on a limb here, but is it possible this could be caused by a program that starts running in the background?
You could experiment with closing applications before you start or using something like Gamebooster.

Hello,
Have you tried playing in windowed mode or lowering the quality settings, even though your computer should be able to run the game?

Hello,
Can you tell us which releases you're using? Are they all G4TW or are you also using retail games or releases from other uploaders?
I'm running out of ideas...

Hmm if all your games are store bought, you wouldn't have needed the fix. I would contact EA about a solution if I were in your shoes.
