"There was an error during startup" Error - Don't know how to fix it, nothing works. [SOLVED]

Post by serifufu on Wed 09 Aug 2017, 14:35

This is the first time I'm installing TS3 on this computer, never uninstalled it so far. Installed the game By The Book™ and I went the extra mile to install everything in order of release just to stay on the safe side.The registry files are looking all looking ok. But the error is still there.

I'm suspecting the problem is that I deleted any files in C:>users>*name*>appdata>local>temp folder upon installing a new expansion/stuff pack, simply because it would take up to 100GB of space per expansion. 

I only have 400GB in total of space and I wanted really badly to install all the expansions and what-not; so if you do the math I wouldn't be able to do so had I left the Temp files alone (20 total expansions and stuff packs x 100GB is way over 400GB, obviously).

I'm going to try the Ultimate Fix, but I don't feel really optimistic that it's going to fix much. (ironically)

It might be just that my little old laptop is not meant to hold such a big game, I really hope that is not the case. : /

 

Here's a peek of my DxDiag to give you an idea of what I'm working with here.

If you have any ideas of what I could do please tell me!

*UPDATE: The Ultimate Fix didn't work :<

Taking 100 GB is ridiculous

Why not use the ZLOrigin version ?
It updates to version 1.69 so you can switch off unwanted expansions.
Unfortunately you cannot play off-line. I'm still working on a solution (managed sims 2 and 4 sofar)

Yeah the 100GB temporary file thing is really weird. I don't know if it's a thing or if it just happened because I was opening things right from winrar???

Didn't know ZLOrigin was a thing though, I'll give it a shot! Thank you!

You could have also gave this here a shot:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t6052-there-was-an-error-during-startup-please-see-the-log-for-more-details-fix

Tip: the forum section named "The Sims 3 Fixes" contains lots of tutorials for these technical issues. And "The Sims 3 Ultimate fix" is really just a No-CD crack file for the most part these days, not a magic wand that makes every issue disappear (sorry for being that blunt).

Maybe it's also worth keeping in mind information like this here:
http://nraas.wikispaces.com/Patch+1.69


NRAAS wrote:Patch 1.69 (All Versions)

Patch 1.69 is unique. It is not delivered through the Launcher but through Origin and is for Windows users of Origin only. There is no Launcher based or independent download/super patch available. It's the first TS3 game patch that EA has delivered this way.

Those on Steam installs and those playing the Mac version of the game will not receive the new patch as they are not using Origin for Windows in the first place.

It changes nothing at all about game play.

The patch offers no (intended) changes to gameplay. It's only new feature is an "Expansion and Stuff Pack Picker" that allows you to choose which EP's and SP's you want to load when starting the game. While an interesting idea for starting a new game (although there has been a mod available at MTS since March 2013 that already does this), making the "wrong" choices could break an ongoing game that is already using content and worlds from some of the EP's. Of course, it doesn't work correctly because it keeps forgetting your selections from one game session to the next. Therefore, before launching your game each time, ensure the EP's and SP's you previously had selected to be played with, are indeed still selected.

Reportedly, Patch 1.69 also;

  • Permanently ties the game's startup to Origin and the Launcher, so the Launcher bypass shortcut trick no longer works.
  • Broke CAW, but that has since been addressed with a new version of Patch 1.69 and an updated version of CAW itself. For more details, see the EA forums.
  • Prevents CC Magic from being able to launch the game but it can still be used to install custom content.
  • Necessitates an update to all Core Mods (such as ErrorTrap) or else you will get the core version mismatch error on startup. See the list below.
  • Prevents the "Save Cleaner" and "Easy CASP Editor" programs by Kuree from working with the game.
  • Breaks the Crash Log Analyzer (CLA). There was a newly updated version but it remained flawed. Update: Check the newest version if you still want this tool, Zoxell has been working on it and this one looks promising. (Updated 18-JAN-2017)
  • May cause issues in game when using GeForce Experience to launch your game, since you cannot confirm if all EP's and SP's are checked in the Launcher during the loading process.


The NRaas official recommendation is to remain on patch 1.67 if at all possible.


Apart from that, have fun with the game and feel free to open a new topic anytime again if you run into further issues and need support for that! Problem solved, topic closed.
