Hello,

Did you restart your PC after uninstalling and prior to reinstalling the game?

LOL Sorry Admin I was about to remove this after answering and moving the same post in the downloads section.

And I had asked whether the TO had changed anything at all.

Hello,

No, don't be sorry. Feel free to do whatever you think should be done.

Hello,

Copied from the site:


STEPS OF HOW TO SOLVE/ELIMINATE/LIMIT YOUR LAG:
--------------------------------------------------------------
---------
Step 1: Download the following 3 softwares: 1) Advanced System Care (which heals your computer) and can be downloaded from here: http://www.iobit.com/advancedwindowscareper.html , 2) GameBooster (which closes all unnecessary Windows/Microsoft progresses while playing) and can be downloaded from here: http://www.iobit.com/gamebooster.html , 3) FPS Limiter 0.2 (which sets a FPS limit to your game, which your video card to run without getting overhelmed, and thus, with better performance) and can be downloaded from here: http://www.caveofdistraction.com/fpslimiter/FPS_Limiter_0.2.rar

Download those 3 softwares, and after you have downloaded all of them, go to Step 2.
--------------------------------------------------------------
---------
Step 2: Install the Advanced System Care software. And then run it. Update it with latest updates. And then, Scan your system with it and it will repair automatically any errors it may find in your System and in your Registry. This is critical as stable and clean system can lead to a smooth gameplay. After that, go to Step 3.
--------------------------------------------------------------
---------
Step 3:
3.a) Install the FPS Limiter 0.2 by following the sub-steps bellow:
3.b) Unpack the files of FPS Limiter to a folder. Unpack them all into ONE folder, together, and keep permanently that folder somewhere safe in your hard driver. If you are a Windows Vista user, keep this folder out of Program Files or it may not work well!!!
3.c) Double click the java application (FPS_Limiter_GUI.jar), and then click "Search Executible"
3.d) Find the .exe for either the Sims 3 base game or the Sims 3 World Adventures. Usually they are in
My Computer/C:/Program Files/Electronic Arts/Sims 3/Game/Bin (TS3.exe), or, if you have the expansion, then, Sims 3 World Adventures/Game/Bin (TS3EP01.exe).
3.e) In the FPS Limiter, Set the FPS to what ever you want (30-60 FPS is good, 30 is recommended)
3.f) Then Click 'Create Bat'.
Now the FPS Limiter will generate/make an new, ugly file called Sims3WA.limited or something, which can be found in the folder of the FPS Limiter itself. Make a shortcut of this new file to your desktop. From now, you must play the game using this new file's shortcut. Not use the original shortcut of the game!. The original shortcut of the game can be used only only for updating your game and for using the game launcher (uploads, downloads, etc). But, for playing the game, just run this new file the Limiter created for you. Make a shortcut of the new file to your desktop. Play the game using this new file. That is all!!!

Optionally, You can do anything with this file's shortcut, like to rename it to a more proper name like "Sims 3" and make it have the Icon that of TS3 or World Adventures.

There you go! you now have a pretty Icon you can now use (which bypasses the launcher) that will make your game run at a nice, smooth, limited FPS.
--------------------------------------------------------------
---------
Now your game is ready! Follow the following 3 steps below for how to set ready your computer and play!!!
--------------------------------------------------------------
---------
Step 4: Close your internet connection, so you safely can close all your Anti-Viruses and Firewalls!!! Close all your Firewalls and Anti-Viruses!!! All those internet-protection programs can eat a lot of PC resources, which leaves no enough resources for the game to run fast! Then go to Step 5.
--------------------------------------------------------------
---------
Step 5: Install and Run the GameBooster. Press GO TO GAME MODE. It will close all your unnecessary hidden/background Processes (that are automatically starting with Windows when you start the computer but you don't need them while playing Sims 3! They eat valuable PC resources!). Go to Step 6 now.
--------------------------------------------------------------
---------
Step 6: Run the game via the new file's shortcut you created in the step 3! Running the file will NOT immediately run the game. First it will pop out a Command Window. Don't tough it! Is the FPS Limiter. Have patience as it takes some seconds. Shortly after the pop up of the Command Window, the game runs, skipping the Game Launcher!
--------------------------------------------------------------
---------

ENJOY THE GAME!!!

NOTES:
1)Each time you want to play the game, just repeat from step 4 to 6 and enjoy the game! Simple! And when you exit/finish Sims 3 game, close the Command Window of the FPS Limiter. Then, you must run again the GameBooster and return from GAME MODE to NORMAL MODE! Simple!.


Note from me: I'm using the Advanced System care and Game Booster myself. And I believe step 5 and 6 are outdated.
You don't have to switch to gaming mode before starting the game, simply rightclicking TS2W.exe and picking "run with gamebooster" will do that for you, and when you exit your game, gamebooster returns to normal mode by itself.
Though if your game worked fine before, you may want to wait until you can install the patch to see if that solves anything at all.
Don't know anything about the fps limiter, Whitepath can you offer some info on that? Do you know anyone who's used it?

Hello ^_^

Yes, FPS Limiter is required, so you can play The Sims 3 at a decent FPS Limit, because sometimes it can be dangerously small (this means that other applications that are running should be closed, so the computer won't be to heated).
If I didn't updated to 1.31...I'd test this by myself...

I have no desire to test it myself after my problems a few weeks back when I tried to test something Shocked
But I've noticed significant increase in performance with gamebooster despite having a few intensive mods (note to self, disable mods and redownload)
