New games on sims3 shuts down computer.

Post by Leahahaa on Fri 06 Jul 2012, 17:33

Hey,
I've only downloaded expansions and not stuff packs,
But for some reason my laptop turns off everytime I try to create a new game in the sims.
I've posted a topic about this before but hasnt been solved at all but now I know it is only when I stat a new game.
Many thanks

Hello,

Did you have any mods/cc?

A bit of acustom content but even running without it still doesn't let me create a new game.
I download of Around the sims
Sims resource
And the sims3 store.

Hello,

I have heard of this error before. You have 2 options, one is a complete reinstall of the game.
The second option applies if you can load your save games. In which case you might be able to start a new game if you back up and remove your The sims 3 folder from (My) Documents\Electronic Arts.
Now start the game and start a new game.
Save and exit, and put the savegame files in your old saves folder, the one in the folder you backed up. Now put the backup folder back where it belongs.
It's a bit of a pain but it's not like you're starting a new game every day.

I did a complete reinstall then put in the custom content again and it broke again. Sad
If I reinstalled it and applied the store updates provided by this website etc, would It still break my game?

Hello,

No, the store updates are unlikely to cause conflicts. The sam is true for most CC, but the only way to find out is to test them a few at a time.
