Cats and Dogs will not work - stops responding whilst loading. [SOLVED]

Post by XPShow.Tea on Sun 12 Nov 2017, 01:15

I have downloaded the game correctly (to my knowledge), and have a good enough computer to run The Sims 4, as was the case before - I reinstalled the game from scratch, removing all mods and saves.

The first time the game worked up until the 'new stuff!' pets and dogs thing came up in which it froze, I opened it again and it stopped responding while it was loading to the main menu, wanted to play this game by today but I guess it won't work. Sad

Same thing happened to me. I didn't know what to do so I went on here to ask for help because my game also stops responding after you try to x (close) the "Welcome to Cats & Dogs" title thing but I think you have to wait for it to load. Forcing it to exit and then loading makes it crash on loading plumbob thing. Try deleting The Sims 4 folder in my documents and if it's just stuck on not responding (no crash) just wait it out. Hope it works

I just installed all the updates (Parenthood, Fitness Stuff and Toddlers Stuff) that I didn't have so I could try Cats and Dogs today, only to find that the game now won't load up at all after Toddlers Stuff and now all the posts about nobody being able to get Cats and Dogs to work properly. Really didn't expect this to go so wrong. Sad

Sorry to hear you have the same problem! Hopefully this topic may eventually get a way to solve it, so keep your eye out on it, I guess. - The person that posted before you may have had an answer, though! Very Happy - I'm testing it out right now.

Good to see your problem was solved! Can I just ask, which of the things did you do in order to make it work? Did you delete the Sims 4 folder in My Documents or did you just have to wait for it to load fully?

Deleting the Sims 4 folder in My Documents caused it to reset, allowing it to show the main menu again, waiting when it freezes w/o touching it eventually causes it to load! Cookie from Carlos

Ah okay, thank you. I've installed C&D now, everything is loading alright and even my mods work, the only problems I'm having is that all my sims have been un-modded completely, so I have to redo them (lots are fine, though) and when playing, the sims won't eat any food. Bit mysterious, all in all.

Hopefully once a patch releases we won't be facing these problems anymore, it's probably just because of how early it is. There have been some strange bugs with this expansion pack, such as the zoomed in CAS feet - Guess we can only wait and see.  Laughing

It works for me, just have to wait every time it opens the game to load for a certain period of time, however it works just fine beyond that.

Thanks for the help!

to fix the crash when trying to close the X on main menu can be fixed by going to program files/the sims 4/game/bin and opening the RldOrigin.ini and changing the CNT value to 0

Won't that basically disable all DLC, though... Question
