Can't do anything after game loads...

Post by eksynn on Mon 10 Oct 2016, 16:39

hi everyone, i'm in a sort of pickle.
i start up the sims 3 after having just installed 'into the future', but i can't do anything.
when i click new game, the button greys out and it just leaves me stuck there.
the menu opens but there are no options to be clicked, just 6 empty spaces where the menu options would be.
there 'select neighborhood' thing is also blank.
all buttons are clickable, but they do nothing at all.


any ideas?


PS, i tried taking a screenshot but it came out black

Edit:
i've tried this:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t859-the-sims-3-text-balloons-not-showing-missing-fix

i've also followed the installation instructions step by step

edit2:
guess i'll try re-applying the patch/updates again x.x

edit 3: when attempting to patch the game from version 1.67.002 to 1.67.2 (you guys' patch), i get this:
unhandled exception
error number: 0x80040702
description: failed to load dll: dsetup
setup will not terminate.

the only option is "ok", and clicking it dismisses the dialogue.

Hello again!

Have a look at this here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Are you sure you tried using the patch from step #2? After that, please do steps #4 and #5 too, and see what happens. Smile

Sorry for the late reply,

At that point, try uninstalling your base game of The Sims 3 only, then re-boot the computer. After which you re-install the base game and re-apply the 1.67 manual patch & Ultimate fix (a.k.a. steps #2, #4 and #5 from this guide here).
