Multiple problems on Sims3

Post by MisdemanorS on Mon 19 Jul 2010, 02:35

See, I know I already posted new topics before, the hels problem and the graphics. but this one, i really dont know what to do.
SO here's my problems:

1. Sims 3 takes too long to start. After I click play it just turns to black and i have to wait 10-20 min. before it shows the EA logo.
2. Sims 3 launcher has gone loco. When I try to install sims3.package files it takes too long again. and it's just black, the next thing I know it says installation finished AND that's after 15-30 min. depending on the no. of being installed.
3. I cant play it. After I click the town or the saved file. It just keeps loading and loading. I started at 12:00 and when I woke up by 7:00 it was't even half yet.
4. AND because of that I cant check if the graphics issue is solved. and the other problems when I play the game.

Additional info:
*I have the ambitions and HELS. AMbition and HEls both from you. and the base game, i cant remember.
*My computer worked fine, even after I installed ambitions.then after a while it started to crash and stuff, so i uninstalled it.
When I installed it, I included already HELS.
*Right know I'm downloading your WA.
*I installed the base game first, then Ambition then HELs. I used to patch and upgrade the versions, then it didnt work, then uninstalled it again and when i installed it again, I didnt upgrade anymore.

It should be HELS then Ambitions. You need to install in order of release or you'll run into problems. Uninstall The Sims 3, The Sims 3: HELS, and the Sims 3: Ambitions and reinstall in the order Base -> WA (if applicable) -> HELS -> Ambitions.

If everything works correctly, the only error you should run into is the unfixable EA error (Custom material blahblah then crashes with an error; it's unfixable as of now, we're waiting for a patch from EA).

Hello,

First of all, don't use any cc unless you're sure the game works 100% fine.

Try the following:

1. Backup your SaveGames.
2. Completely uninstall all The Sims 3 games / mods / cc from your system.
3. Restart your PC.
4. Reinstall The Sims 3 base Game.
5. Reinstall The Sims 3: World Adventures.
6. Reinstall The Sims 3: High End Loft Stuff
7. Reinstall The Sims 3: Ambitions
8. See if it works now.

2. Now open the Start menu. Type 'regedit' in the search box and press [ENTER]. Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sims\The Sims 3 and double-click on 'SKU'. Change the shown
number to 2 and press 'OK'. Close the Register Editor.

Blue font = XP
Red font = Vista/W7

If you're on XP, ignore the red font. If you're on Vista/W7, ignore the blue font.

Open the "Start" at the bottom (this is the little blue circle in W7/Vista).

See the character box under "All Programs"? Type in "regedit" and press Enter.

On Windows XP, you need to manually open "Run" by clicking on "Start" and selecting "Run" in the side menu under "My Computer".

This'll bring up the registry window. Follow this path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sims\The Sims 3


on Windows XP to find the registry of The Sims 3 (Windows 7's data path is: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Sims\The Sims 3)

Open the file called SKU. You'll see a number, usually 7. Replace it with "2" and close.

All done. It's simple.

You have Vista, eh?



^ See where I typed "regedit"? That's where you put it, and your search will appear above (see the blue box + "regedit" at the top?). Click that, and then follow the rest of the instructions.

A "path" is a series of folders. For example:

C:\My Computer\Users\Bobby-Jean\My Documents

would be Bobby-Jean's computer path to My Documents. In this case:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sims\The Sims 3

is the path you must search in folders when Regedit comes up.

The SKU file should have been changed to "2". Did you change it to "2" from "7"?

Yeah, you can update everything, and use the Fix for Ambitions pinned in this board / the Fixes board. Just make sure not to crack before updating or you'll get a .dll error.
