Sims 3 Pets Loading Issue

Post by necroberry on Wed 19 Oct 2011, 14:56

I've been trying to fix this for the past 20 hours or so and I am getting a tad frustrated, tired and overall annoyed. The game is fully patched, it installs fine, it takes a long while to load the Pets screen and when it finally gets into the start menu (neighbourhood/saved game select) regardless of choosing a saved game or a new game in any town, it loads for an hour or so until 50% and then just stops, with no error no freeze, no nothing... it just gets stuck (the load bar as well as the game tips), the program is responsive (well Task Manager doesn't say it's "Not Responding"), it just doesn't move passed it, and I left it like that for 4 hours.
I deleted all my CC, I even reinstalled the games (all the expansions and stuff packs), I tried your fix, I uninstalled all the expansions and just kept the base and Pets games thinking it might be from my PC, and I even tried another release... and still nothing. Also everything works just fine without Pets.
I am sorry if I may be addressing an issue that was already solved or posted, from what I looked there wasn't something similar. Thank you for your time

I was just about to edit my post, to specify that all of my drivers are up to date and my system meets the requirements. Thank you.

To be honest, I've no idea with your problem. You believe that your Graphic card can support the expansion pack?
I would suggest you to wait for other moderator/Admin reply Smile

By the way, would you like to try THIS method?

Hello,

Did you add ALL OF THE .exe files to the DEP exceptions?
Also, do you have any Mods too? If yes, DELETE AND REMOVE ALL Mods and Custom Content. Everything!

I have deleted every CC, that including mods, and yes I have also added all the .exes to DEP, but it seems my problem is sort of fixed... And by that I mean that it took 8 hours to load into the game, worked a bit, in slow motion and constant freezes and then finally froze for good in Create a Household.
I don't understand why since my specs are acceptable and meet the minimum requirements: AMD Athlon II X3 450, 3.2 GHz, 4 GB RAM, ATI Radeon HD 3450 and am running Windows 7 x64-bit. I also have my graphic settings on medium for the game and I always close any background processes when playing.
*sigh* I believe I'll wait until I upgrade my graphic card and my PC overall. I'm getting tired of trying to work this out when it's eating so much time, so I'm giving up.
Thank you and sorry for taking up your time. ^_^

No need to say sorry. Anyway, I'll let you know, if we found any other fix for it.

Hello,

Try this and see if your PC can run the game/expansion at all: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/

Same thing is happening with me and I've noticed that no matter what u do sims do not stop work unless u go in a lot and play in live mode. Smile This is pretty strange. And i've done all the stuff including DEP, I have no CC or Mods and my computer beats all the requirements! Don't get what is wrong with my sims 3 pets too! BTW I installed as you'vesaid (watched a tutorial)

Hello,
Since EA has changed the way many objects work with the release of Pets, I think this has everything to do with graphics cards.
I would suggest to wait for a new patch, which is bound to be released soon.
