Sims 3 game not loading during buy and build mode

Post by lydiapydia on Fri Aug 03, 2012 5:58 pm

Hey again...
I have just started my sims 3 after several problems. Now it seemed to be working perfectly until i wanted to buy something. First, I couldn't see the "buy square (where all of the funiture is)" and when i went over to the build mode i saw the "build square" but it was still loading, you know with that little circle circulating and all. I can't click on anything.
Help!

Hello,

Is your game up to date? Are you getting an error at all during start up? Are you using mods/cc?

Yes, no and yes. But only mods. None of them seem to be working though. And now I face other problems, like when I went to the change town mode, I was stuck there.

Hello,

For now, remove the mods folder from Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 and see if everything works as it should.
If it does, use Delphy's Dashboard on the mods\packages folder to see which one is causing trouble.

Well, now "sims 3 stopped working..." It also said something ( i can't remember that well...) about how my sims game would get bugs and such if i continued and that it had some sort of problem. Help again?
PS. I still have the buy + build mode problems...

Hello,

Is that before or after you remove the mods folder? Because it could mean you have an outdated crack.

It just means that either you've misplaced the crack, so it's not being read, or you updated the game, but didn't get the newest fix to go with the patch.

I got the newest crack for 1.36 and placed it in the bin like i should have. I think i did everything right on that point. What could be wrong then, did I ruin something when I deleted the Mods folder?

But when i copied the sims 3 pets crack in the sims 3/game/bin and i start the game it says that "unofficial game modifications" but i have no mods. i"ve tried the ultimate fix but it doesn't work
Then i deleted the crack and played the game with virtual drive of the sims 3 pets. The game's working fine for a while. But then there's a window says "the game stopped working". please help me

Well, what types of mods were you using? Some mods can cause different effects if you just straight up delete them without following special removal instructions.

Hello,

In order for the Fix to work, you must install the latest version of the game.
Please re-do step 2 to 5: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Hello,

Can you post a detailed screenshot of the folder you copied the crack to? With file types etc. showing in the picture. Particularly of the TS3W.exe and TSLHost.dll.

Hello,

Ok, I can see a number of files that don't belong, TS3EP03 and TS3EP02. Those 2 should be deleted from that folder.
And can you tell or show me the "date modified" on TS3W.exe and TSLHost.dll?

Hello,

Looks like it's the 1.34 version crack, so if you redownload the fix and apply the crack, the problem is probably fixed.

Something I noticed from your first screenshot, of your mods folder, is that Overwatch should be in the package folder, not just chillin where it is. Smile

I don't think that'll help you with anything other than getting overwatch to work, but you never know.
