problem with saving error code 16.[SOLVED]

Post by andretzar on Tue 17 Apr 2012, 01:59

Hi I downloaded two of your expansions, pets and generations.
At first I couldnt even start a game but I solved that, then I couldnt load my game, each time I tried som mystical error went bahamas on my ass and told me I better restart the program, I tried to reinstall everything and applying your ultimate fix and now I cant even save the game I get some error code 16.
I am not that handy arround computers I just do not speak their language, please help me I really want to play this game.

I have the base game on disc, world adventures, late night and ambitions aswell, it is just pets and generations I downloaded, the game worked fine before I installed thoose two, did I do some really stupid mistake when I tried do install them?

Hello,

What's the exact error you're getting on load up, Somethis along the lines of "A serious error has occurred when loading savegame.sims3. It's recommended you restart the application"?
