Game freezing completely after installing 'Store Updates 1 to 26'

Post by anikkitoremember on Wed 25 Apr 2012, 08:02

Hi there,
So, I've been searching for someone with this same problem on here and on the sims3.com forums but I seem to be the only one.
I've recently switched internet providers and have been able to download games because I have a bigger cap, so I started downloading sims games from you guys, and I've never ever had a problem before (which is awesome, cheers!!). I've also never had a technical problem that I couldn't fix myself, which is why this is so frustrating.
I downloaded your store updates 1 to 26, installed them fine, used them fine with my game, but about a sim day and a half in, maybe two, my game crashes. Just freezes completely. Never ever had a problem with G4TW games until now, never had a problem with any custom content except slowing down my game a bit (which I don't really care about because it happens to everyone). I really don't want to delete any of it because it would be a complete waste of download.
I've also been warned not to download mods, because they can wreck your game, and I really don't want to download and install games all over again. Apparently some 'overwatch' mod can help with freezing but I want to be careful.
Cheers in advance!

Hello,

Overwatch is safe, as are all mods by that developer. I've been using those mods for 2 years, never gave me any problems.
I'm not sure these crashes are related to the store updates 1-26. Unless you are using other content as well, then, there could be a conflict.
Package files in general can cause some problems, depending on your pc. If it's low-end there could be issues.

That's the thing, I don't even have content from the exchange because I didn't want my game to freeze! Aha Murphy's Law, dammit. I'll try Overwatch, thanks heaps.

Hi there,

Overwatch won't let your game freeze, it's there to prevent such things, so don't worry!
