Can't play the game (TS3, ambitions,generations,pets) [SOLVED]

Post by Simaholic on Wed 05 Sep 2012, 14:07

So I've had version 1.38 for a while, and today I downloaded the fix. I followed the steps, and started the game. It started fine, and it allowed me to enter the sims town (it wouldn't before installing the fix).

So I wanted to create a family. However, I couldn't, because I don't have the option to choose my sim's life wish. And all sims Must have life wishes.

So then I tried to play an already existing family... But when I choose the family and click into it, the game stops loading and just "freezes" to town. All buttons are vanished, I can still use the mouse to move around in town, but nothing is clickable.



Help..Please?



Edit: I have no CC. Just installed everything today.

I tried this but it didn't help. Earlier today I managed to play an ongoing family by choosing the family in a different way. I still couldn't see the sims wishes, or it's basic needs such as bladder etc.

Hello,

Are you sure you're not using any kind of Mods at all?
Try backing up and then removing this folder: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3

I have the exact same issues! I have tried everything and it still will not work. I have the base game installed from disc and pets installed through this process. Any advice appreciated!

Please open your own topic. When you post in someone else's topic, no matter how similar the problem is, the topic gets confusing. Two people could have the same issue with completely different causes, so it's more difficult for us to help you.

Well, not sure exactly WHAT worked, but it runs smoothly now. I hadn't downloaded any CCs, but after updating graphic driver, using gamebooster and removing the folder it's all perfect. Thanks a lot!! Very Happy

(My comp. has no problems playing the game at highest resolution, so I was very confused when it didn't work.)

Oh well, enough chatting, gotta play some more;)

It's possible that one of your cache files was corrupt, or you had downloaded something a while back, uninstalled it, but still had the "ghost" of that object messing with your game.

Glad that Admin could help. Smile Enjoy the game
