Cannot Save Game

Post by wistfulprincess on Mon 08 Feb 2016, 15:58

Hi! I've been having issues, for a couple of days now, where I can't save my gameplay and an error message comes up. Usually, I play a couple more Sim hours and days before being able to save the game. However, this time, I have been trying to save for hours and the error message still comes up.

I took a screenshot of the error message above, for your reference.

Hope you can help me out! Thanks! Smile


I actually went to the Manage Worlds page and tried saving from there. I think it worked (at least the error message did not show up) but the whole game crashed right after. 

Upon opening the game again, I'm not sure if the time was correct but it didn't seem like I went back to the last time I was able to save. Is there anything I can do to address this issue?

Thank you! 

I used "resetsim" for all of the Sims in my household before trying to save again, but it didn't work so I tried to save from Manage Worlds.

Hello !

Have you tried the option "save as" ? Also, see this here, and especially the part #4:

It refers to savefiles and backups of them. Can you try restoring an earlier version of your savefile, by the method mentioned there ?
