Crashing Windows 8 [SOLVED]

Post by Vanira on Sun 02 Sep 2012, 23:07

So it just started today and I've actually been keeping my computer real cool for once when I game. I'll be ingame and creating my house when it'll crash and say the Sims 3 has stopped working. :l I have a PC, I am using windows 8 beta. c: I've played at longest around 6 hours in one sitting. Should I wait for the new patch to be released or is there any help that can be provided now? o:

Thank you in advance~.

Hi,

Its little to go on without computer specs.

Go here and see if your computer passes the requirements for Sims 3 - http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/

Also, I wouldn't be playing it in Windows 8 beta, not sure what the others think but I wouldn't personally.

If you pass the the requirements test, post again Smile

Um, yeah not to sure on win8 beta... I think that's a bit advanced for the sims right now. Have you tried the DEP solution yet?

Hello,

Yes, The Sims 3 is known to cause problems on Windows 8 operating systems, as that operating is not officially supported yet and still contains bugs.
I'm afraid I don't have any good news for you, at the moment.

Ah, I see, so it is win 8. Haha, well it quit crashing after a few hours break. (Around 3 hours) I rather like win 8 and it's worked fine and extremely well despite that. If it happens to others, just give it a few hours break. c: Thanks for all the input!

Forgot about specs, yikes, really new to this haha. I've got a Dell Latitude E6400 if anyone wants to doublecheck on that. My uncle gave me this laptop and he's a major gamer, haha! So he had like 3 games installed on this for me. ;u;' Pretty sure the specs should be up to date for sims. If I encounter future problems I'll ask him about it next since he also plays Sims 3 on win 8. Thank you again everyone~. c:

I will try out the DEP right now. c: Thanks for the heads up Scarletrose!

I will consider this solved now.

Hello,

Good luck and please let us know if you were able to set it up correctly on Windows 8.
We prefer to wait for the final Windows 8 release though.

Anyhow, enjoy playing and please let us know if you need any more assistance!
