Sims not appearing in Create a Sim. Pets and Supernatural. [SOLVED]

Post by spoopy on Sat 28 Jan 2017, 19:24

Hi 
So I'm able to start up the game just fine. I followed the ""Must READ" How to install Sims 3 correctly" directions however, no texts appears in any of the text bubbles and sims are invisible during character creation. Is there anything i can do?


edit: I should add, pet creation is just fine, only i cant see any text.

Hello,


Welcome to the forum.
We haven't seen this problem in quite some time, but it appears that you can fix it like this. If that doesn't apply however, try to run the patch again, and recrack your game after that.

Ok, try this: Uninstall the base game (no need to uninstall the rest yet). Then, reboot your PC, install the base game (you can ignore the warning that pops up) and use the patch and the crack again.

The reason you get this is because something went wrong during your attempts to install/uninstall the game, which is unfortunately very hideous in Windows OS. For starters, you could try doing steps #2, #4 and #5 again, from the guide here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Other than that please see the guide here for a possible solution on how to deal with the issue:

Good luck!
