Game freezes before the first menu after applying Ultimate Fix. [SOLVED]

Post by tiomario on Sat 14 Nov 2015, 16:02

Hello, everyone, I may need a hand with an issue I'm having with my game. Here is what I have:

I installed the base game and everything worked fine, then I applied the Ultimate Fix. I ran the game and everything looked great, those popups showing all the new stuff appeared and I was dismissing them one by one. Until the game froze...

Well, I've had my computer on overnight while downloading the game, so I rebooted it to see if that was a problem. Did that, tried again, and now the game freezes right before the first menu, at the spinning green thingy with the game tips.


  • I've tried cleaning the cache file.
  • I am using Windows 7.
  • All the folders are in the exceptions list of my antivirus.
  • The game is located in "C:\Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4"


Any ideas of what might be going on?

Thanks!

UPDATE: I looked at this post and tried again after deleting the "The Sims 4" folder under Documents for it to be re-generated. After doing this, I get past the loading screen and the game now freezes every time after trying to close the "Spa Day" DLC popup. If I leave the new "The Sims 4" folder, I get the original error.

UPDATE 2: Carlos' solution worked great for me, follow the steps in his reply. Good luck!

Hello and welcome to the forum,

In order to avoid that, you will need to download the "Get to Work"-expansion pack and installit according to the included instructions. Get it from this site here:
https://games4theworld.org/downloads


After which you should re-download (and re-apply) the Ultimate fix, from the opening post here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t18086-the-sims-4-ultimate-fix

The links were changed yesterday; and this "new" fix includes a minor improvement, regarding some in-game glitches.


So again, install Get to Work, then re-download and re-apply the TS4 fix. Good luck !
