The sims 3 chrash on going.[SOLVED]

Post by Edding92 on Sun 18 Mar 2012, 22:20

Hi!

It works to start The Sims 3, but when I have choosen a town to start in, it loads for a short while and then crash.

I have the following expansions:

1. Master Suite Stuff
2. World Adventures
3. Ambitions
4. Generations
5. Out door living stuff
6. Town life stuff
7. Pets
8. Showtime
9. Fast lane stuff
10. High end loft stuff.
And base game ofc.

And I think it all started when I installed Showtime.

I have tried your, whats its name, the rar file with all the cracks you know. And I patched as you said and well lets just say I did exactly as it said Smile

But it still dont work. And in the beginning when the game loads to start the coulors are not that wierd but a little white all around. I tried to take a Printscreen but it didnt work WhatDidUJustCallMe? The pic got all black in paint. Anyhow... I have been reading alot...ALOT of threads here to find a solution but can´t find any. I saw this link you had posted to someone else, but I didnt understand shit of it. Im swedish to so I dont understand all english words you use haha. But do you have any suggestions for what I can do ? Really want the game to work.

Thanks for any help you can give. Peace.

//EDIT

Ah thought I might add that when I open up the launcher it says "Error: Can´t connect to Origin" ... Is it supposed to do that ?


Mod edit: Topic moved to the right section.

Hello,

It doesn't really matter whether or not you have or can connect to origin. Some of us don't even install it and it's not needed to play.

Are you using any mods/cc?

Hello,

Ok in that case you probably don't have any.
Mods are game alterations made by simmers who felt that some things could be better than EA's way, cc's are objects, patterns, hairstyles etc. made by simmers.
You could have a look at
this video that will show you how to add The Sims 3 to the DEP, that's probably easier than reading it from a guide. This method helps a lot of people with crashing issues.

Hi!

I tried what he did on the video, and to make sure I didnt do anything wrong I did everything step by step, watched him, paused the video, did what he did and so on. Restartet my computer but it still dosnt work. And forgot to mention that when I have choosen a town and clicked "start" this messages box pops up but I cant read what it says. Then I get 2 choises and one of them returns me to choose a new town, and the other one starts the game, but in the loading process it crashes. Wish I knew what it said but yeah, the text is in the same coulour as the background... What else can I do ? :/ I have already reinstalled everything twice but same problem every time. And it worked perfectly before I uppdated and installed Showtime. :/



//EDIT

Read some more threads and people keep saying that Version 1.33 is a failure ? I have that version, does that have to do with anything of this ?

Hello,

It's a little more complicated than that. There have been "superpatches" for version 1.31 and 1.32 that can cause a range of problems. These superpatches are designed to update a fresh version of the base game all the way up to their version. But these 2 superpatches are causing problems because they apparently have content in them that isn't supposed to be there.
You could try to make a screenshot of the error you're getting, maybe we can recognize it even though there's no text.
You can also choose to reinstall again but with a different set of instructions. Many people are on version 1.33 without problems.

Hi,

I have tried to take a printscreen but when I put it in paint it gets all black, and there is no saved printscreens in documents/the sims 3 folder.

Yeah, I think im gonna try to reinstall everything again, and just skip Showtime... A little sad tho, wanted to play it :/

Hello,

No need to skip Showtime if you take care which patches to use and when.
This is what I'd recommend:

-Uninstall everything, either with youruninstallerpro (Can be downloaded here) and/or using Ccleaner after you finish uninstalling.
-Restart the pc, this is very important so don't skip it!

When you reinstall, you can disregard the obsolete installationguide's for the most part. No need to use cracks or patches.
All Games4theworld releases should be extracted with winRAR.

-Start by installing the base game.
-Now patch it to game version 1.29 with the superpatcher. It can be found here, size is 862MB.

-At this point you can decide to install everything except for Showtime, or you can patch to 1.31 first. It doesn't really matter which route you take at this point as long as you patch to 1.31 before installing Showtime.
-The incremental (small) patch for 1.31 can be found on the same page you got the 1.29 superpatcher. It doesn't really matter which one you use, you may have to change the SKU to match the region of the one you downloaded. How to do that is explained in the #Installation Guide of G4TW World Adventures and Outdoor Living stuff releases.

-After you've successfully installed everything, download the manual patch and the latest fix.
-Install the 1.33 patch you downloaded in the previous step.
-Look at the fix and open the #crack folder, these 2 files should be applied as specified in step 13 in the fix's installation guide.

Now, you should be able to start your game. If you have any questions at this point, don't hesitate to ask.

Hi,

I went in to the link for patch 1.29 (superpatcher) But the link says

"This page has been deleted.
The deletion and move log for the page are provided below for reference."

So, then what do I do ? :p Didnt find anything else on the page WhatDidUJustCallMe?

//EDIT

No wait, I found it lols, was kind of right under my nose. So no worries! Smile

//EDIT


Hi, again..

Well I did have a problem with Patch 1.31. Was gonna install it before I installed any other expansions at all. And this came up

"The setup has detected that the installed game region for this update is incorrect."

"This update requires a different game region in order to be installed."

And I have no idea what that means

Hello,

No problem that can be fixed. If you got it from the same page as the superpatcher, there are 5 patches for 1.31 which one did you get? Look at the region numbers above the patch. Now here's what you do:


-Open "Startmenu", type "regedit" in the search box and
then press [ENTER].
- When you're in the Register Editor, navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Sims > The Sims 3 OR IT MAY BE IN:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Wow6432Node > Sims > The Sims 3 (Windows 7, Vista)
-Here you'll see a file called "SKU". Double click on it and change the value to match the region number of the patch you downloaded.
-Now you can close the registry editor and try patching again.

Hello,

No problem, we're here to help.
The website where you downloaded a patch before, has a number of different patches available for 1.31, above the downloadlink it says "region x".
At this point you could look in the registry for the region number, it goes exactly like I described above without changing anything though, just look at the number and get the 1.31 patch that matches it.

Well I did but I still got the message that the game region for the update is wrong. Should I do anything else then change it to 2 ?

//EDIT


Aight, I fixed it, since I had region 1 I just wrote 1 instead of 2 lol, so the patch is installed haha :p Gonna keep on folowing the steps for the installations of expansions now so hopefully I will have a working The sims 3 in no time! =D

Thanks Smile If encounter any more problems I will be in touch :p
