The Sims 1: The Complete Collection - CTD.[SOLVED]

Post by holypalaswe on Thu 01 Mar 2012, 13:21

Hello, I've been trying to fix this problem for the last hour by the help of google but nothing seems to do the trick.

When I start The Sims.exe the game starts good, I can see the EA-logo & sound, and then it just crashes to the desktop. Sometimes without any error, and sometimes with the standard Windows msg, "The Sims has stopped working".

I have changed the compatibility to Windows XP SP2 & Run as Administrator, didn't work. (I also tried with compatibility Windows 2000, same result).
I have done the "DEP-fix" where I add the The Sims.exe to the DEP exceptionlist. (also tried adding any possible .exe I could find in my The Sims folder). (I have restarted my PC after adding).

I haven't found any other things to fix my problem, wondering if anyone here knows what could be wrong.

I run Windows 7 64bit OS, 580sli, i5 2500k.

Hello,

Try this:

1. Completely remove the game.
2. Run a Ccleaner normal and registry scan. (www.ccleaner.com)
3. Restart your PC.
4. Reinstall the game.

See if it works now.

Did this, didn't work.
I also redid the DEP & compability-thing after that and still CTD without any error after the EA-intro.
(Sometimes it takes 1-2sec longer and I can start to hear the ingame music before it crashes).

Hi there,

Oh great! I'll remember that for future problems. Some people seem to have this issue.

Anyhow, have fun playing!
