The Fix - what does it?

Post by StefO on Wed 29 Aug 2012, 04:20

Hey folks,

just found your Fix and sounds great to me! Wink

My problem is caused by too much use of memory. The game breaks down when more than 3.6 to 3.8 GB memory is used by the game - during saving or when using CAW to work on my world that I am working on for 15 months now. Does Fix help that memory caused problem out? What exactly does that program modificate to improve the game stability?

Turning game into 64bit based program would be best I think, than there wouldn't be no 4 GB memory limit. But I don't think that this is possible.

Just wondering and asking befor I start to download and install.

Best Regards

StefO

If definitely doesn't do anything to help with memory usage. It's basically a replacement of the original game files, along with a crack, so people don't need the disks to play.

The memory problem shouldn't be sims 3 related unless 4GB of RAM is all you have available system wide. Try shutting down all unnecessary programs running in the background either manually or using GameBooster, also you can try turning down your graphics settings in game through the options panel.

Thanks for the reply.

I have 8 GB memory on my system. However, game breaks down when about 3.6 to 3.8 GB in use.

I deactevated DEP today, testing if that helps out. Wink

Let's see.

Hello,

The GameBooster makes a huge difference!
When setting it up, choose the "TS3W.exe" file in the program (if you added it) and then click "Configure".
Select all unnecessary services you do not need when running the game.
Also turn off Windows Themes. (It's one of the options)

For now I can say that without DEP the game loads much faster, bevor deactivating DEP it took about 50 minutes and more, now it was about 10 minutes or even less. That's remarkable.

It didn't use so much memory today, so I cannot say if the breakdown at 3.6 still occurs.

Hello,

If it does, really, use GameBooster and you'll love the result.

Yes, that is the link. Make sure to download the 3.4 stable version as the 3.5 version is still in Beta (unless you like working with beta software that is)

If it works on Lady ElDi's PC, it works on all PC's. Even the most crappiest ones. Because there is no crappier PC than the one Lad...- Ah, forget what I said.

I used to hate GameBooster, but since it has done wonders for some people...
Please let us know the result after using GameBooster!

I love it too, but not everybody is comfortable using a beta release. I'm hoping that they keep it free after they decide its stable, there has been talk about no longer providing a free version HERE

Well let us be honest, there's probably hardly a crappier pc in use today by mine. I'm not bothered.
Patience is still a virtue Very Happy

Admin is probably feeling challenged by now because his lack of success in rattling my cage lol

Crazy: I installed the Game Booster druring Sims 3 was running, did not end or restart the game, and just predded the Boost-Button. Now the game needs only about 1.5 GB of memory, bevor it was about 2.5 to 3 GB and bevor deactivating DEP even 3.5 and more. LÖL

Amazing and great idea to install the booster, thank you! Smile

Hope that there wouln't be memory related break down problems anymore. Wink

Thanx! Wink

//EDIT

... newly boosted even 0.5 GB RAM LÖL ^^

LOL sorry about that... I hope you didn't ruin your keyboard.

@StefO
There could be several reasons for these crashes. We've ruled out memory usage now, so let's continue to figure this out. The bad news is that game crashes are pretty common in The Sims 3. You can try a lot to prevent it from happening too often though. Start by looking here.
