Have used Ultimate Fix but game keeps crashing after a minute of play...

Post by veroniqua on Fri 21 Oct 2011, 16:51

Hi,

I downloaded the Sims 3 Generations EP yesterday & installed it as per the instructions.

It wouldn't work because of the 1.26 update, so I manually updated the patch then used the Ultimate Fix & followed the instructions to the letter.

Now it's up to date & I can launch it & select a town, but after a minute or so of play it crashes.

Any suggestions?

If I want to roll back the install of Generations how do I get everything back as it was yesterday before I started mucking around with it? Does anyone have back up copies of the original files pre crack? (Just the 2 original TS3W.exe & TSLHost.dll files)? I think I'm better off uninstalling Generations & just buying Pets tomorrow & doing it that way.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks Smile

//EDIT

BTW - I have already tried backing up & deleting all custom content - made no difference, game still crashed about 20 seconds after I selected the game & go to the play screen.

just a note: i'm having the exact same problem. i tried uninstalling just the pets ep and the game worked fine, so it seems to be just something with pets. so aggravating cuz i've been looking forward to pets for a long time. hope we get this problem solved soon!

Hello,
Both of you could try this.
Veroniqua you don't need to roll back the install, a bought or downloaded version shouldn't make any difference. All the original files you need can be found in the fix you downloaded, each expansion pack's original file is located in its corresponding folder.

Mommamia: If you have any mods or custom content, its highly recommended you completely uninstall it at this time and find updated versions of your mods.
In the future, please open your own topic for better support!

Hi, thanks for the info, I have now tried manual update, ultimate fix, removing all custom mods & changing the DEP settings but to no avail.

It's still not working & still crashes after a few seconds Sad

I went out & bought Pets, so I think I will have to try rolling back the dl'd Generations & go without. I hope I can as I really don't want to have to uninstall all 6 bought Base & EP versions...

Hello,
Uninstalling Generations shouldn't be a problem, although keep in mind that if you saved your family with Generations installed, you might not be able to load it after you uninstall this EP.
