Sims 3 Won't Load Past Intro. [SOLVED]

Post by sier87 on Thu 09 Feb 2012, 06:46

Hi I downloaded The Sims 3 and all the expansion packs and I installed them the way the "Must read how to install The Sims correctly " post. My pc is also capable of running The Sims 3 but when I start the game it plays the intro and then when the load screen starts it doesn't load or do anything. The music doesn't even come on. I have uninstalled the game multiple times but it still wont load. I hope someone here can help me because I really want to play The Sims.

Also the game worked fine when I first downloaded it but after I installed Ambitions it stopped working.

Hello,
Did you also use the latest fix and is your game up to date?
Maybe this can help you out.

Thank's ahead of time for trying to help me. I tried all the latest fixes but none of them helped. I really can't figure out what went wrong since at one time it was working. And I also have the Sims Midieval on my pc and it plays fine.

Hello,
Which fix did you get, the latest one that was updated January 25th? And what is your base game version? You can find out as shown in the image below.

//EDIT

The last time I re-installed it I only installed pets.

//EDIT

Hello,
Ok I didn't think this was caused by your game version, or the fix. But we need to make sure.
You say you've uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times, did you restart your pc after uninstalling, before installing again?
Are you using any mods/cc?

Hello,
Yes it is essential to restart the pc between uninstalling and reinstalling.

I uninstalled, restarted, and installed again but the game still won't load.

//EDIT

I check my sims 3 file and realized that it was putting the cc content
back in the folder even though I moved it. So I changed the name of the
cc file on my desktop and restarted my computer its working now. I feel
kind of dumb for not realizing that was what was happening in the
beginning. Thank you for your help though, I really appreciate it.

Admin edit: Please do not double-post, but use the "Edit" button on your posts instead. Thank you!
