Work/Shop mode load bug. [SOLVED]

Post by shortstuff on Sat 11 Aug 2012, 17:58

Heya.

I have a bit of a problem with the sims 3 as of now and I wanted to give it a shot and ask here before doing anything else.

So the issue at hand. The game works great, until I go down to a lawn and it will do the spinwheel (load) forever. I know it has nothing to do with my computer specs or anything. I know that for a fact because I played this game before but then re-installed the game with all the expansions and all the stuffpacks. That is why it would be a real hassle to re-install everything again and why I turn to you.

Some information. As I said, all the expansions and all the stuffpacks, I followed Admin's guide to the dot just as last time. Also when this bug happens I can choose to move around as usual and the load will stop but I won't be able to click the buttons in the game only use the shortcuts. Say I want to exit, I'll then have to F5 and click exit (that works, no idea why) otherwise the bars won't come up.

Anyway that is all I can think of for now. Hopefully this has come up before and it has a fix and I was just too dumb to find a previous post.

Thanks, short.

Hello,

I'm not sure what you mean by going down to a lawn. Do you mean like, going to a park, or more like, in build mode?
Anyway, do you have mods? Are you getting any kind of error at all during the start up process?

Yes. Going into build mode.

Anyway, do you have mods?

I have no mods, at least that I'm aware of.

Are you getting any kind of error at all during the start up process?

No errors as I start the game. I do get a pop-up message saying "It looks like you have installed an unoffical game modification that does not match your current version of The Sims 3. We recommend that you either uninstall these modifications or get updated versions of them - otherwise you may experience crashes or significant bugs."
But that pop-up was there the last time I installed it and everything worked flawlessly anyway.
Another thing I thought about that could be the problem, correct me if I'm wrong - As I start The Sims and I reach the game window (I'll link a picture below so you know what I'm talking about) I see that Diesel stuff pack is not recognized as installed content even though I'm sure I installed it. Could this be the reason why it is buggy? Something went wrong as I installed this stuff pack for reasons unknown and screwed up the game?

Link to the game window: http://i.imgur.com/3vnl5.png (it wouldn't let me post links, this works just as well)

Thanks for looking into this, I appreciate the help. I'm sorry if me not re-installing the game seems lazy of me but I really want to know if possible what the problem is so it doesn't recur.

Hello,

No need to uninstall, I think you have an outdated crack. Apply the crack from the fix, and it should be solved.
The unofficial game modification is no longer acceptable and causes problems in build/buy mode.

Oh! So if I have all the expansions and stuff packs I have to put in all of these .exe and .dll files!

I just extracted the 2 files from "# Crack". I'll try this and update you on the result.

Hello,

If you followed THESE instructions to install the game and the expansion(s), you only need to re-do step 3 to 5 of that page.
If you didn't use those instructions, you might want to re-do step 2 to 5 to make your game work.

Good luck!
