Sims3 stopped working

Post by nicalee on Thu 15 Mar 2012, 11:05

Hello!

I've used the updated ultimate fix(11-03-2012), and re-installed and followed the steps correctly, but still sims would stop working. In step 11, I used the manual patch. I can still play, but i had to save all the time as it stops working after 30mins-1 hr. I don't have any mods, or custom content..

Note: I have only generations, pets, world adventures, and late night. When i installed some of the expansions it said, sims 3 needs to be updated before this product installed and clicked yes. When I came to step 5 in manual patch, I skipped it cause the SKU value was already 2. My base game's version is 1.32.

..did i do something wrong? i've seen similar problems around the forum, but it still doesn't work when i try their solutions Sad please help!

thank you for the reply! i'm still checking if it works, i did the DEP thing and fixed the compatibility. When i ran the game, my saved games weren't there, and there were 2 Electronic Arts folders in my documents. should i merge them to have my saved games again? just being safe Smile

Merging them should be fine or you could just transfer over all your saved data

EDIT: MAKE SURE TO TRANSFER OVER THE NEWLY CREATED FOLDER

when i transferred the saved files it said, a serious error has occurred (in loading the saves). That's when it's compatible with windows 95, but when compatible with XP, it still crashed when i played for more than an hour.. Sad

Hello,

Remove/backup both "Electronic Arts" folders and then restart your game. Does it still crash?

Hello,

Looks like a bugged save game. You can try errortrap.

Hello,

Try undoing the compatibility mode.
You may also want to look at the registry like this.
