Sims 3 Keeps Crashing - Crash Log Analyzer not working - please help

Post by DarQie on Mon 04 Jan 2016, 00:26

Hello,

I registered on Games4theWorld only to address this issue I've been having for 2 days.

I've been playing Sims 3 + Eps + cracks for a few years now with no issues.  All of a sudden, when I double-click on the file to open the game (no loader), it crashes and says that the Sims 3 has stopped working. I have not installed any new custom content, mods or the like. The only thing I did was use a 'Game Defragging' program which mentioned it would boost game performace.

I have so far tried everything to no avail..deleted cache files..mods..re-copied the Ultimate Fix. Nothing works. 

I downloaded the Sims Crash Log Analyzer but that doesn't even work..it also crashes on startup!

I have attached the log file for the crash. I would oh so really really appreciate it if someone can look at it and kindly give me some advice on what the error is and what I should do next..!

Thank you so much in advance and kind regards,
DarQie

Hello,


Welcome to the forum!
Personally, I can't make heads or tails of error logs, so maybe one of my team members can. 
But since you changed nothing, except for the use of that defragging program, it seems reasonable to assume that's what caused it. Where did you get it? Can you post he link to the download page so we can have a look at it?

Hi Edin,

I really appreciate your quick reply.

The software I used is called Smart Defrag (by Iobit). I tried to copy the links here but unfortunately I received an automatic error from the forum saying that since I'm a new member, I'm not allowed to post links for 7 days.

It has a section called 'Game Defrag' which I stumbled across and thought it might help..*cringe*

I would really hate to have to reinstall my game and all the expansion packs. Any help would be much appreciated! If anyone could let me know what the error logs say, it would be great.

Thank you so much,
DarQie

Hello,


I'm familiar with that program, but have never used it for that purpose.
Can you tell if a restore point was created? Maybe you can go back.

I'm sorry for the late reply, 


For the future, you can contact one of the (active !) Moderators on the forum via private messaging, if you don't get a reply within 24 hours of your last posted message. Smile

That said, did you ever add the .exe files of The Sims 3 to the "DEP exclusions" here ?
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-updated-on-30-01-2015

See the part about the DEP exclusions. Also, though it may not be related, you should also look at the topic here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t21716-excessive-fps-rendering-in-the-sims-3-updated-on-16-12-2015


Though the latter doesn't really explain why your crash log analyzer itself keeps crashing.  Shocked  Good luck, and do keep us posted. Smile
