Sims are missing. [SOLVED]

Post by Mairoula on Tue 03 Jan 2012, 13:51

Well, first of all hello! Very Happy

I need your help in order to fix my sims 3... I've tried nearly everything!

My game was working perfectly before the last 1.29 update. I was getting many errors and I chose to uninstall everything and download the base game with all the expansions from you. I did exactly what the guide said and also applied the ultimate fix. My game then was ok but when i chose a family to play i got an error message that sims 3 has stopped working. Then I uninstall again everything because I thought I did something wrong. After installing again and applying the fixes , my computer was making a strange noise when the game was loading. I searched and found out that I had to turn on Vsync and triple buffering from my Nvidia control panel. When finally the noise stopped , i came across a new problem. All the neighborhoods do not show any sims, words are missing, buttons are missing. And after all i get an error message tha my game has stopped working. I have some photos in order to show you. My printscreen didn't work , so i took them with my phone. My game is in greek and i do not have any mods or custom content, only your ultimate fix. (*sorry for any mistakes in english)

Hello,
This reminds me of a common problem, would it be a problem for you if the game was in English? You could try this.

Hello,
I'm really not sure what to tell you, been staring at the screen, thinking for 10 minutes lol.
What if you undid the changed you made in your nvidia control panel, does the noise return? And your sims?

I undid the changes, the noise returned when I was at the first loading screen and now the button to pick an existing household in a neighborhood came back. Although I can pick a household, when it loads I can not see my sims or pets, just like the picture i posted and a few seconds later my game crashes and i get an error message that my game has stopped working.. Sad Thank you for replying so quickly!

Hello,
There are some things you can try to solve the crashing problem, but that wont solve the missing sims issue. I think this is a problem for Admin.

While trying to fix mine, look through this page and see if it will help your issue aswell:

http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Sims_3_Loading_Crashes

It says it a loading error in a sense.

Hello,

Yes, good question.... This is new to me too.
First see whether your PC can run the game correctly here: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/

Especially the Pets expansions, since the requirements are different(!).

Hello,
Well that should definitely do it as far as your PC goes. And all your drivers are up to date?

Hello,
Just to be sure, go to Nvidia's website and check your graphics drivers anyway.
