Sims3 keep freezing after 20 minutes

Post by Sins3 on Sun 19 Aug 2012, 07:04

i've followed both methods in the must read thread. installed base game, install master suite/showtime first, followed by the rest of the ep/sp in order of release, ran manual v1.36 super patcher then ultimate fix(tried copied&paste the files from all folders(alternative method) and from just # crack(first method)).

after that, i just install some custom sims, a few skins(1 default for each gender and 3 non), some cloth and hair mods and a few car and residential lot mods. that was all. none of them should conflict with the game to cause crashes. i transferred them from my other (way weaker vista) laptop where the game never crashed.

but after 20 minutes or so in the CAS on the new laptop, the game would freeze and CTD. i opened event viewer and saw faulty module path being either msvcr80.dll or ts3w.exe. i checked the c++ folders and the .dll was there. I've tried running the game from sims3launcher and sims3launcherW as well as ts3.exe and ts3w.exe. same results every time.

Hello,

Never assume your cc won't cause problems now if it didn't before. It's possible that they don't work right with your current patch level.
I'd suggest testing your game without your cc first. Just backup your mods folder, then delete it. If the game still crashes, put the backup of your mods folder back, and look here for possible solutions to your problem.

Is the game like shocking? So you'll see your plumbob (This thing: The Sims 3 plumbob ) rotating, trees / bushes waving because of the wind, but the time is frozen and your sim is frozen too.. If that happened, it's just Sims, then you should lower your settings or download the Overwatch mod from NRaas, that cleans your game. (Vehicles and such) And you can do 'resetsim *' which resets all the sims, that command really helps a lot Smile!
