Can't play with Windows 8 Consumer Preview

Post by JackLim626 on Mon 12 Mar 2012, 04:20

Hello,

I have a problem with playing The Sims 3 with Windows 8 Consumer Preview. When I started Sims 3, it work, but when I open a new world for new game, it only loaded 30%-40%, it pop-up a "Stop Working" then close Sims 3. Help

My System:
-Computer Type: Notebook, Acer, Aspire 4752G
-Windows: Windows 8 Consumer Preview
-Processor: Intel Core i5-2430M 2.4GHz with Turbo Boost up to 3.0GHz
-Graphic Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M with 1 GB Dedicated VRAM
-RAM: 4GB DDR3 Memory

Hope somebody could help me.

Mod edit: Topic moved to the right section.

Hello,

I think there are some compatibility issues here since win8 hasn't officially been released yet. When that time comes, I'm sure EA will launch another patch, but right now I don't think there's much you can do about it, sorry.
But you may always check back later for Admin's thoughts on this matter.

Ok, maybe it will take a year, so I can't play Sims 3 until next year... T-T Facepalm

Hello,

You can always consider installing win7 on another partition Wink
EDIT Never mind that, I just read a message from someone who managed to run TS3 in win 7 compatibility mode.

I tried to change the compatibility to Windows 7 before I posting this, that will happen the same thing, stop working while loaded 40%-50%.

And I tried to change back to Windows 7, but that's not working to change back to Windows 7.
