Hello,

That's a tough one to get away from, read this.
I managed to solve that one once by installing error trap.

i'll try that.

another info is: it just happens when i'm playing up to 10 minutes then, i remove all the mastercontrollers... all the mods but still it is not working.

* but when i save it every 5minutes, it was saving.

//EDIT

another is my save game folder size is 200mb even though i have just 6 members. WTF! so high! ):

Hello,

The size of your save games also depends on how long you've been playing that particular world. If you have several generations, your save game can be quite big.

i bet your problem has something to do with memory, because Error 12 is directly related to the RAM/memory. Upgrade your RAM to 3GB or more. But before that, try to make sure you have done all the possible solutions to avoid Error 12.

Like me, I have 2 GB RAM, but my graphics card is only built in but it's just like any basic video card, so it performs well and renders graphics in Sims 3 okay. The only problem is that 0.25 GB of the RAM was allocated for the built in graphics card, so I have 1.75 GB RAM. Considering that the minimum RAM for Sims 3 to run smoothly is 2GB. More than 2 GB is better. I'm gonna buy a 2GB ram soon to make my PC's RAM 4GB!

For caches, CCs, etc, follow Lady ElDi's method. Just search for it through the forum. I have CCs as well, but only the stuff from the Store.

And I'm also using Nraas Error Trap. But I'm still experiencing Error 12 crap. And a few crashes.

So if you have done fixes to the files (CCs, caches, etc) but you are unable to upgrade your RAM, I'd suggest you only save your game when paused. NEVER save your game if it is not paused. And save every 15 minutes. And try to use "Save as".

If you upgrade your RAM to more than 2GB, you will have no more problems! Unless your files have errors or they are corrupted.

I hope this helps.

It seems you have a good graphics card. And it has nothing to do with the hard disks.

Do you use Windows 7? Could you please go to Computer then System Properties? Then please tell me what is said at Installed Memory (RAM). Thanks.

And to ensure your computer has met all Sims 3's optimal requirements, please go here http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/CYRI/

//EDIT

As for me, I only have 1.75 GB RAM usable and a bulit in HD graphics card. Graphics settings are not set too high. And I have controlled using CCs. And Data Execution Prevention does not meddle with my game. Plus, I have a terabyte of storage (but storage isn't really a problem unless you actually don't have enough storage). I'm playing fine, despite the crashes and Error 12.

Hello,

Besides being boring, I don't think reinstalling will help much at all. Error 12 is a nasty error. If I were you, I'd use this mod. It allows you to transport your entire population (or whichever sims you want) to a new world without breaking relationship and family ties. This is the manual.
Back up your save game before trying though it would be a shame if things go wrong after all.

Hello,

I'm not sure, but I think you would start at day 1.
