Game minimizing upon startup and installation manager crashing

Post by kingdomwolf on Sun 05 Feb 2017, 19:09

Since I downloaded expansions from here, my game always goes to a black screen on startup, loads for a few minutes, and then minimizes itself. The thing is, mine will load for a few seconds, and then once the sims 3 logo shows up on my taskbar i can open the game and play as normal. I've been playing the game like that just fine for months now, but since the last time i closed the game, it minimizes and i cant get it back open, and im forced to close it through the task manager. I downloaded one mod after the last time i played, a window set from mts, but even after deleting it my game will not open. I also attempted to download some things from tsr after downloading the windows, but the installation window loads indefinitely, and then crashes when i click on it. I have no idea whats going on, does anyone know what to do?

edit: I forgot to mention, since the last time i played, when i open the launcher i get a script error. It still allows me to use the launcher, it just asks me whether or not i want to continue running scripts on the page.

Hello,


You can ignore that script error, it has nothing to do with the game error. I'm not too sure what causes it, but it doesn't mean much.


As for your game, you have a legit base game? Is it at game version 1.69.xx? If so, that could be the problem. You can fix it by uninstalling the base game (no need to uninstall EPs) and disabling automatic updates before you reinstall. Don't forget to reboot your PC after uninstalling, if this is the route you're going to take.

I do have a legit base game copy (and legit late night and high end loft stuff, if that makes a difference), but it says my game is updated to 1.67

Hello again,


The only way that could possibly make the difference, is if your base and those 2 expansions are part of a "deluxe" edition. Those are incompatible with our crack Sad

If you have a "deluxe" edition, the only way to have more expansions, is to also download cracked versions of the base game and the expansions you own.
