Sims 3 crashes continously.

Post by NadaElMahdy on Sat 28 Jan 2017, 19:04

Good evening,
     I've been having a problem with sims 3 the complete collection that I downloaded off your site on August 2016. It worked perfectly until recently it began crashing whenever I begin gameplay within 5 minutes of playing. Before this started happening the game lagged way too much. I looked through all the replies and topics but I couldn't find a related topic. I already sent a message but I don't think you received, I hope you can help me find a solution for this issue.

Hello and sorry for the late reply,

If your Windows is a 64-bit version AND if your computer has 4 GB of RAM or more, then focus on step #3 in particular. Download the "4 GB patch" from here.


After downloading, double-click on that 4 GB patch and in the next prompt, choose the TS3W.exe in your base game location. Usually, that's C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Wait for the message "executable successfully patched" and close the 4 GB patch.

Note that this method will not work if your Windows is a 32-bit version and/or if your computer has fewer  than 4 GB of RAM. After doing that, go on with the rest of the steps. These instructions should be pretty self-explanatory.

Now go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 and delete all contents inside the Currentgame.sims3 folder. Also, in My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3, delete the following stuff:


-CASPartCache.package
-compositorCache.package
-scriptCache.package
-simCompositorCache.package
-socialCache.package
-plus the contents of the folders "WorldCaches" & "Thumbnails"



Re-start the game then and see if anything improved. You may even turn off your anti-virus program completely before playing The Sims 3. Also, have you also heard about the tool "GameBooster", which can help you improve your system's performance ? Google for "Razer Cortex".  

Finally, check out the topic about excessive FPS rendering  and try applying the procedures shown there, on your own system.

Good luck for now !
