Generations consistent freezes

Post by xth0 on Sat 28 Jan 2012, 18:39

Hello all,
I recently got Generations from this site, and well it hasn't been working properly since day one. I got the sims 3 base and late night from other sources and they all worked fine until generations and the fixes. I read in a couple places that it cold be mods or cc that causes the issue. I deleted the mods folder from the program filesx86/sims3. However the problem remains. I also gave the fixes a shot for all three but the problem continues. Any way to confirm that mods and cc are completely gone? I can live without them. Thank you
I also have reinstalled generations several times, but that didn't work.

Hello,
Have you also checked the Mods folder in your my documents\Electronic arts\The sims 3 folder?
Furthermore, you may want to make sure that you're using the latest fix and that your base game version is 1.29.

I am running base game 1.29, and I have deleted the mod folder in the documents folder. I just downloaded the fixes again and applied them, but the problem remains.

Hello,

Try the following:

1. Go to (My) Documents\Electronic Arts\
2. You'll see a folder called "The Sims 3".
3. Drag & drop this folder to your Desktop and remove it from the "Electronic Arts" folder in "(My) Documents".
4. Restart the game and see if it works now.

Ah that seemed to work. I had to start a new game but no big deal. Thank you both for your patience and help.

Hello,

Then now we know that the problems is caused by one of the files in the "The Sims 3" folder.
I think you didn't correctly remove the Mods from "(My) Documents".
If you can't get that to work, join the chatbox when you see either me or Lady ElDi online. We'll be able to help you via TeamViewer, if you like.

Hello,
At this point you can try putting your save games from the old folder in the newly created Sims 3 folder. That way your progress wont be lost.
