The Sims 3 minimizes as soon as I start it fix.

Post by Webmaster on Sat Apr 03, 2010 8:41 pm

Hi,

   You start the game, but it minimizes as soon as you start it? Here's the fix for that one:

Known issue: If you've Vuze or other software running on the background, close that program first and then start the game again.
Also, if you have any Mods or Custom Content, back up(!) and remove those first. Then test the game again.

The game should work fine now.

Did you try to close áll running Programs on the background and then try again?

I had the same issue with Vuze, you can either close it, or quit uploading stuff. In my case, if I'm only downloading and NOT seeding, I don't have this problem (be sure to seed after playing, no one likes a leech).

I don't even have Vuze installed and I removed all custom content. The Launcher stops working when I launch it, and the game itself opens and closes itself automatically. It worked three days ago, but High End Loft Stuff screwed the game :| so I had to reinstall and now I'm having issues I've never seen prior.

Hi,

Well, then I recommend you uninstall all the Games and reinstall them from The Sims 3 to WA - not Installing High End Loft Stuff. HELS haven't got anything special anyway.


Ps. Don't forget to backup your SaveGames!
