Game is unplaying

Post by TurtlerCool on Mon 02 Jan 2017, 01:23

First off, I want to clarify it is NOT the mods I have in my game. I've tried without them and the same issues occure.
So onto the actual issue now.

It started as my CAS messing up. The aspirations and traits tabs would either freeze in place or I just wouldn't be able to change them.
When I clicked on the phone, just the bottom of it would just be seeable on the top of the screen.
The it got worse.
When I paused the game and selected 'options' nothing would be in there. Nothing would show at all.
Then if I loaded into a household and tried to pause the game to save or exit, the world would go black and I'd be unable to do anything else.

I'm kinda desperate to find the issue and fix it.

Hello @TurtlerCool,

Just to be sure: if you downloaded/installed the G4TW Sims 4 releases, you installed them in the correct order? Base game -> Get to Work -> Get together -> City Living? See this here too:

Did you use the program WinRAR for extracting the contents of the .rar downloads? Does the error happen with a specific .exe file/have you tried running both the TS4_x64.exe and the TS4.exe?

Have you tried running the game as Administrator too (right-click -> run as Administrator)?

If you're playing on a laptop, it's maybe worth a try looking for the option "laptop mode" under your graphics submenu, in the game options. Tick the box and apply the changes. Then play on. Smile
