It just never stops loading into a household. [SOLVED]

Post by AsphyxiaMalice on Fri 21 Jul 2017, 16:26

I'm not sure whether I can post here or not but I've searched for a fix and there are only unsolved ones from May. I have all packs and fixed to patch 1.30, plus I did all the moves and changing the game folder and whatnot, but it just never stops loading into a household. I thought it was maybe my computer that was a bit slow so I left it running over night for about 8 hours and it still never loaded. I'm not sure what to do anymore. My antivirus was disabled too so I could put the files into exclusions. I'm out of options, please help.

Maybe I misunderstood it, but I was under the impression that the renaming of the Game to Game_ was meant for Toddlers/Vampires.
If you had not done that and installed Parenthood and Fitness, you still had to rename (or delete) the Game folder and re-copy the folder Game from Fitness.

So does the Game folder from Fitness solves the problem even without renaming or deleting the existing Game folder earlier on in the process ?

You're right; there are two ways to do this:

1) Right after you install the Toddlers-pack, you can rename/delete the folder "Game". Then you continue as usual with applying the Parenthood and then the Fitness update.

2) If you forget to do this after installing the Toddlers pack, you can also do this at the very end. So after installing Fitness, rename/delete the folder "Game", and then download the fixed folder from either the tutorial I posted, or from one of your links. 

I think it's about time the game comes to an end so we can release this global torrent, but I'm afraid it's still going to take at least a year and a half.

Regarding point 2.
The fixed folder = folder Game for Toddlers/Parenthood
Is the folder Game in Fitness the same as the fixed folder ?
I don't think so, but maybe I'm wrong.

Thank you for the fix, it sorted out my never ending loading screen but now I have no items in game. Is there any way to fix this?

I don't think so, but maybe I'm wrong.

The "Fixed" folder (from the tutorial) is always the most current version available (currently 1.31.105.1010). And yes, it's also the same as Fitness. Anything else wouldn't make much sense; most people just blindly copy/paste the downloads. At the end those people can delete their Game-folder and use the "Fixed"-folder.

If you delete the Game-folder after applying Toddlers/Vampires/Bowling Stuff, the following torrents - Parenthood, Fitness - already have the fix "incorporated". So theoretically you shouldn't need the folder from the tutorial.

Did you use the "Update-Only Ultimate fix"?

Yes, but you still have to Rename (or in my case) Delete the existing Game folder prior to the Fixfolder or Fitness. (if you haven't done that before with Todllers/Vampires)
Many people tend to forget that important step 7.

1. Install Base Game
2. Move Base Game (The Sims 4) out of the folder Electronic Arts to a new location which will be your install folder from now on
3. Copy folders from extracted download Get to Work to your install folder
4. Copy folders from extracted download Get Together to your install folder
5. Copy folders from extracted download City Living to your install folder
6. Copy folders from extracted download Toddlers/Vampires to your install folder
7. Delete existing Game folder from your install folder (or use the Game_ method)
8. Copy folders from extracted download Parenthood to your install folder
9. Copy folders from extracted download Fitness to your install folder

No other fixes required !

Right, on the other hand you always need to ask: to what extent should I (or you, or any other Helper) "go" when solving these problems. In my opinion, every information that people need is out there, and there is only so much I can do. Sure we could improve a few things here and there, but at some point it's probably not worth the effort. I know this is a highly cynical view, but I cannot solve problems magically. A certain amount of remaining responsibility will always lie within the end-user coming here and reading up on these Fixes. In the past I myself and especially Admin used to do lots of TeamViewer support, but meanwhile that has also been suspended. 

I wanted to improve the screenshot(s) in the guide, but not do too much else. And of course, keep the guide up-to-date every time there is a new TS4 DLC.

@ the_ghOstm4n, thank you for the hard work you do and @ Tarac as well. I think the way you guys explain everything in the install guides and fixes you supply is actually crystal clear. Your help is greatly appreciated by (I think ) most of us here. I have found basically fixes for all my problems by reading through the various posts and suggestions given here. It does take a lot of time though and maybe people are just to eager and want their problem fixed as fast as possible? and do NOT take the time to read through all the instructions and do actually Not follow them to a T.  Thank you also to Ageha for being so absolutely patient, explaining everything over and over again. I found solutions to some of my problems by reading through them all.  Smile I tip my fedora.

Thank you very much for the help. I messed up by renaming the file too late so I reinstalled everything step by step and it worked.
