I've tried everything and my game STILL crashes. [SOLVED]

Post by emilvscookies on Sun 03 Apr 2016, 19:02

I have the same problem. I've tried everything and my game STILL crashes. I've downloaded The Sims 3 complete collection before about half a year ago and it worked fine with no problems on the same computer. But now the game just keeps crashing. I can't even get past the loading screen after you pick a town and click check.

Please help! I really want to play The Sims 3 againHelp Crying or Very sad

Hello,


For now (re-)do the steps from #2 to #4: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Next make sure that you download all available Windows updates too...


Now have another  look at this other topic here and re-do all steps: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-updated-on-7-01-2014

If your Windows is a 64-bit version AND if your computer has 4 GB of RAM or more, then focus on step #3 in particular. Download the "4 GB patch" from here.


After downloading, double-click on that 4 GB patch and in the next prompt, choose the TS3W.exe in your base game location. Usually, that's C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Wait for the message "executable successfully patched" and close the 4 GB patch.

Note that this method will not work if your Windows is a 32-bit version and/or if your computer has fewer  than 4 GB of RAM. After doing that, go on with the rest of the steps. These instructions should be pretty self-explanatory.

Now go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 and delete all contents inside the Currentgame.sims3 folder. Also, in My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3, delete the following stuff:


-CASPartCache.package
-compositorCache.package
-scriptCache.package
-simCompositorCache.package
-socialCache.package
-plus the contents of the folders "WorldCaches" & "Thumbnails"



Re-start the game then and see if anything improved. You may even turn off your anti-virus program completely before playing The Sims 3. Also, have you also heard about the tool "GameBooster", which can help you improve your system's performance ? Google for "Razer Cortex".  



Finally, check out the topic about excessive FPS rendering  and try applying the procedures shown there, on your own system.


Good luck for now !

Good luck !

Thanks a lot for your response, am sorry for not responding  Facepalm. I followed what you said and the game works! Turns out I didn't use the latest patch and the Ultimate Fix. Thank you!!

Sounds cool, and no worries about "posting late". We usually leave topics open, even if the original problem isn't solved in the initial discussion. Time and time again people come back and post new feedback, sometimes saying they got it fixed, or sometimes if there are follow-up problems.

Either way, have fun with the game and feel free to get back in touch with us again anytime, if you need more help. Just open a new topic then. Smile
