Sims Quitting out while loading my saved game

Post by pastaway on Thu 01 Mar 2012, 19:36

Hey there, sims geniuses.

I've Installed the sims 3 and every expansion pack/stuff pack and I've gotten really far in my game now, but when i start to load up my saved game it quits out after a minute loading it. This only happens with that saved game, I can load any other saved game just fine Sad The map this game is on is the city that came with late night. Screen-Shot is below of what happens if that helps Smile

Never mind it just shows black when i print screen on sims. but anyways it loads to about 1/10 of the green bar below the sims hints/help thing and exits the game and says Sims 3 has stopped working etc..

If anyone else has ever had this problem and could help me out a bit with fixing it that would be awesome and I'd love you forever. I've also done the ultimate Fix. I just really don't want to start my game all over :'(

Hello,
It's possible that your save game is corrupted. If you go to My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Saves, does the saves folder of this particular save game have the .bad extension?

Hello,
Possibly. Look for [yoursavegame].sims3.backup, and remove the .backup part of the folder's name. It works for some people, not all. This page also offers 2 other things to try that will only work if you have WA.

Hello,
Sorry to hear that Sad
Its a good idea to backup your save games every once in a while, depending on how often you play you could back them up once a week or once every 2 weeks. Or every day even.
If you wanted to back up every day, what you can do is alternate your saves between 2 save games, so today you're saving as sunsetvalley1 and tomorrow as sunsetvalley2. You'll never loose more than a day's progress, but its still a good idea to backup the entire saves game every now and then.
Go to My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 and copy the entires saves folder and paste it to another location. It could be any place you want as long as its not the abovementioned folder. I like to rename my backups to simsaves dd/mm/yyyy and keep 2 of them.
