Unexpectedly stops working WAY too often.

Post by KawaiiBunneh on Wed 19 Jul 2017, 22:03

Ok first off, I'm running my Sims 4 through Wineskin on Mac. Everything runs decently well... but one BIG problem. I crash regularly so I've started saving every few sim hours. But that's incredibly annoying to have to restart so often. I get the Sims unexpectedly stopped working thing all the time! On top of that when I start Sims 4 up, half the time I have to quit and start again due to the expansions, game packs, and stuff packs not showing up at all as if I don't have them. It's frustrating. I installed everything the right way and it DID work fine for a while... but lately it's just not. I also can't accept invites from sims to go to the bar, a party, etc. And I DEFINITELY can't go to ANY of the festivals... which sucks. Most traveling causes crashes, although there's been no crashes due to traveling to work (doctor or scientist... not done detective yet but the Get to Work stuff seems to be ok atm)

So here's the list of issues I'm having:

1. DLC doesn't always show up when starting the game.
2. Anytime I travel to some places I crash. ("Unexpectedly stops working")
3. After playing for a bit (no specific time here, it's random) it crashes. ("Unexpectedly stops working")

I followed the instructions for installation perfectly too... multiple times. I was having trouble beforehand even getting the Sims 4 to work at all but I got it working... now I've got these issues. D: Help! My addiction is suffering lol.

Hello!

Did you use WinRaR for extracting those downloads? Also try the crash-fixes here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t21728-the-sims-4-crashes-freezes-causes-shutdowns-possible-fixes-updated-on-18-07-2016

If you are having difficulties with making (certain) DLC appear, try having a look at the possible fixes here:

Also, may I ask what difficulties exactly you were having at the beginning?

My trouble beforehand were just the game giving me the origin error and something about my old saves were created with a newer version? Idk. I ended up deleting it and reinstalling all the stuff again, making sure firewall and anti-virus were off while i installed. Game still wouldn't start. Then I turned on firewall again, started it and now it starts. that issue was fixed. it'll start any time now, no problem. just DLC not wanting to come up and the crashing issue.

as for extraction, I'm on mac so I didn't need winrar or anything.

//MOVED

Ah, I didn't know that (moved your topic to the right section). Unfortunately we don't offer any 'official' support on The Sims on Mac OS platforms, but maybe the topic here which contains some links, can help you further:
