Game doesn't start, no specific error - fix.

Post by ☠ ~ Aɳɳ ~ ☠ on Sun 30 Oct 2016, 22:09

Hello,


This post is for those users that are using AMD Crossfire or hybrid/dual graphics technology. It may or may not apply to Nvidia and/or Intell. If you have experience in that area, feel free to reply whether or not it does. Either way, it is worth a try if you're not using AMD, but are encountering this error, since it doesn't take much effort to try.


If your game won't start for no particular reason, and without any error message at all, disable this option in your AMD CCC or AMD Radeon Crimson software. 
The image below shows AMD CCC as it appears with Dual Graphics enabled, disable this option, and select "apply". Your game will (probably) start now.
This definitely applies to TS3, but may also apply to The Sims Medieval, or any of the other older Sims games.







DO NOT POST ANY QUESTIONS OR PROBLEMS IN THIS TOPIC. INSTEAD, PLEASE OPEN A NEW TOPIC IN THE APPROPRIATE FORUM-SECTION, EITHER "THE SIMS 3 DOWNLOADS SUPPORT" OR "THE SIMS 3 IN-GAME SUPPORT"! THANK-YOU-NOTES CAN BE POSTED HERE.
