Game crashes after around 5 minutes. [SOLVED]

Post by Genemaiden on Sat 02 Jan 2016, 22:49

I've even tried taking all mods out completely, but no matter what after around 5 minutes of actual gameplay (outside of create-a-sim, that is), a windows prompt will pop up saying that the Sims 4 has stopped working.  It can be during anything, really.  Anyone else experiencing similar issues? Anyone know of a fix?

The weirdest possible fix.... I turned Vsync on.  Thank you Carlos!

Sorry for the late reply,


Actually, it's not as weird as it may look from the outset. Smile  If you think about it...having VSync turned OFF, may lead to the game rendering tons of FPS, much more than your graphics card & computer are capable to keep up with (blame EA for poor technical implementation of the game, if you want). And if the graphics card and/or your computer in general are pushed to the limits, it may lead to all sorts of issues.

Glad to hear this did the trick for you. please don't hesitate to get back in touch with us again, if you need more help with anything or even want to chat only. You can then open a new topic too. But in the meantime, have fun ! Problem solved, topic closed.
