Fix for endless household loading screen. [VERSION 1.33.38.1020]

Post by The_gh0stm4n on Tue 16 May 2017, 21:17

Hello all!

People have been messaging us through various means asking about these issues with endless household loading screens, regarding the G4TW repack of "toddlers" (available on the G4TW Downloads Page).

Update for version 1.33.38.1020: applying the latest version of this fix (see the download links below) not only mitigates your loading screen issues, but also corrects the Error Code 3, see this here. If you apply this fresh "Game"-folder from one of the links below, you do not have to use the Error Code 3 fix anymore!





1) One way of dealing with this:

Look at the guide here, and in particular from step #7 onwards (the step after applying the Toddlers-update):
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t21806-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-4-correctly

Follow the guide carefully until the end, and you should be able to play your game just fine.





2) Another way of dealing with this:

Since a lot of people forget to rename the "Game"-folder after installing the G4TW Toddlers-update, you could theoretically apply the fix at the very end as well (a.k.a. after installing ALL of the available G4TW The Sims 4 torrents/updates), provided you always download a fresh "Game"-folder from one of the download links at the end of this tutorial. Now, after you installed all the G4TW The Sims 4 torrents, go to where you installed The Sims 4 to. Typically that is the folder under C:\Program files (x86)\The Sims 4\Game

At first, change your existing Game-folder to Game_. Your folder will then look like this.




Now you have to simply copy the "fixed" Game-folder from one of the download links below, into your The Sims 4 installation. After which your folder will look as follows.






The current version of the fix is 1.33.38.1020.

Downloadlink - Mirror 1 - Mirror 2 - Torrent




After you placed this fresh Game-folder, simply go inside, then under Bin, and start the game with your TS4.exe. I noticed the game now takes a bit longer to start up, but by this method I was able to load my old savefile.

Good luck for the time being! Smile
