Sims 3 Generations problem.[SOLVED]

Post by mammu: on Sun 04 Mar 2012, 07:03

Hello,

So, I just got Sims 3 Generations, also I have Pets. When i launch TSW.exe from Bin then, black screen pops up, and then closes and gives error what says : unalbe to start game, service initialization failed (0x024e424f). Then I downloaded Ultimate Fix, it didn't give me that error anymore, instead it, it gave me crash, when I was in build mode. I reinstalled game, it didn't help. And now, still that error : unable to start game, service initialization failed (0x024e424f). My laptop meets all minimum, and pretty much oveer minimum, so that I guess, can't be the problem. I don't have any CC or mods. I have tried moving The Sims 3 folder( in my documents), didn't help too. Before I got Generations, game worked like a charm..

Help, if you can ! Smile

Thanks.

I applied Ultimate Fix again, and I played in live mode, I didn't go to buy or build mode. I needed to go to buy or build mode, and as soon I picked up bed, put it on the floor, game crashed, I couldn't do anything. And in error, there says that ModName: msvrc80.dll(I don't know if it was named this, don't remember)

Hello,
It looks like an incompatible crack. Did you happen to update to 1.31? http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t3702-attention-the-sims-3-fans-read-please-important-do-not-update-to-v131

He's having the same problem i've been having. At first I thought it was MS expansion, so I uninstalled it. But i'm still having that problem. Can do CaS and live mode just fine, I just can't build or buy anything. The crack is installed correctly, I know that for sure.

Hello,
If you have Master Suite stuff, did you apply its crack at any point? And can you show a screenshot of the folder you copied the crack to? Preferably a detailed view with file types and such.

@rnkgamekiller: please open a new topic, that will make it easier for us to provide personalized support.

Im she by the way Smile and yes, live mode is fine, and when starting to put down bed or something, game freezes.

//EDIT

I don't have Master Suite stuff. At first I tought it was about
Generations, so now I uninstalled it, still problem. Now is the problem
about the unofficial modes or something.. I have no mods or CC, I have
no idea. Now I uninstalled all expansions, now I have just installed
base game, I'll go see if it works!

Hello,
Try this video to guide you when you apply the fix, but don't use the launcher to update because it'll update to 1.31 and there's no crack for that yet, use this manual patch instead.

Hello,
Don't update to 1.31, use the manual patch to update to 1.29 instead. It wont work if you use the 1.31, since there's no crack yet.

Hello,

Did you download and apply the v1.29 manual patch, as Lady ElDi suggested?

I'll download it now. If I would download Ultimate Fix now, and apply this, it won't work, right? Because there is *NOT WORKING*, and this unofficial error, is more like the old crack problem?

//EDIT

Only freaking problem right now is the unable to start game 0x039e8474..

Hello,
The "not working" comment means that the fix wont work for the latest patch level, but it's still good for 1.29.
The error you'e getting suggests something went wrong when you installed either a patch or an expansion. Did you restart your pc when you did the reinstall, between uninstalling and reinstalling?

YAY! I solved the problem!!!! I don't really know how, I just installed Pets. I didn't apply Ultimate Fix, and i'm scared to apply, maybe i'm gonna screw up the game again, i'm not gonna reinstall. Now I have Sims 3, Pets, Generations and High Loft stuff. I played 2,5 hours, no crash, or freeze.
IM SO HAPPY!
Is g4tw gonna upload Showtime too? Waiting forward to it Razz

Thanks for your help all!

Yes G4TW does plan a Showtime release. You can expect it in the next couple of days, since the official EA release is tomorrow.
Happy to hear you solved the problem, don't hesitate to post if you run into problems again.
