Sims 3 Showtime crashes.[SOLVED]

Post by Nachodsk on Fri 16 Mar 2012, 14:44

Hey everyone!

Well i'm glad that i arrived here, because i have a big problem with the Showtime edition game for the sims 3.

You see, well i have installed like 4 expansion packs and of course the base game. I installed perfectly the Showtime expansion, but when i want to enter a sim in the house it crashes and black window comes up with the message:

"Sims 3 Has stopped working" Sad

Any help?
I dont have ANY mods/cc in the game it's a very fresh install.
Hope there is a solution.
Thanks a bunch!

Ignacio.-

Hello,

That explains it. Patch 1.33 isn't supported by the fix yet. Admin has been working on it, but for now your options are to wait for the fix, or uninstall and reinstall.

Maybe another way to do it w/o uninstalling the WHOLE game with expansions packs will be downloading the 1.32v update and install it?

Or should i REINSTALL THE WHOLE GAME with the expansion and then download the 1.32 update and install it in the Sims 3?

Thanks Lady! Smile

Hello,

Just installing the 1.32 isn't going to work, I'm afraid.
I recommend waiting for now, Admin should be online soon and he can tell you what's best, since he knows when the fix can be expected.

Hello,

Because Showtime requires patch level 1.31 or higher, so those of us that have patch 1.31 or 1.32 also have a compatible crack and can play just fine.

I tried, I install the Sims 3 and then the ShowTime expansion pack but when i try to get into the house of a family, i get kicked out of the game with the message:

"Sims 3 has stopped working" Sad

well, such a pity.. Sad i think i will have to wait to buy the retail game. In that case i don't really know what i'm doing wrong, i install and uninstall like 4 times all the expansion packs, this time i only did it with this two to make it faster and see if it works.

But well Sad such a pity.. if there's anything else i can test, please tell me.

Thanks a lot guys btw.

Hello,

I doubt a retail game would stop this from occurring, lets see what we can make of it.
What is your current base game version?
Are you using mods/cc?

My game base version is: 1.33.2.015002
Showtime version is: 12.0.273.015001

No, it's a fresh install. Not mods or cc installed.

//EDIT

I'm writing down this the steps i used to follow to install the game as i have it right now:

1) Install Sims 3

2) Then i apply the update 1.33v (the one who was released yesterday)

3) Install Sims 3 Showtime

4) I used the Ultimate-Fix (first for the Sims 3 Base game i drag and drop both files into the folder of the game (TheSims3\Game\Bin) and then i do the SAME THING with the ShowTime in this case this applies exactly equals, i drag and drop both files into the folder of the sims 3 (TheSims3\Game\Bin) and of course REPLACE THEM IN BOTH CASES.

5) Then i open the launcher (no new updates figures, i guess it's right because i have the newest version)

6)Then i close all related to the sims 3 (also from system tray)

7) Last step is open the "#Crack" folder and drag and drop both files into the folder TheSims3\Game\Bin --> (Here goes both files, dll and .exe) and i replace them.

8 ) final step, i load the sims3launcher (from the original folder --> TheSims3\Game\Bin) and i click on the big play button.

It goes nice, till the time i select a family and then i put them in the house and click the button to get inside the house with the family previously selected.

The problem comes when i try to get INSIDE the house, it goes black window screen and a message appears i said before: "Sims 3 has stopped working"

Well, hope this is instructive about the problem.

Greets!

Hello,

Ok so far it seems that everything is going right. Except that your game crashes.
Have a look at this post.
