The Sims 3 (all EP) is crashing, I don't know how to fix it

Post by Zingoalla on Fri 07 Sep 2012, 10:43

Hi,

I'm really frustrated as I've been sitting in front of the computer all night (and now it's 10am) and I can't get it to work.

Firstly, I installed the Supernatural EP I downloaded.
No problem so far.

All went smooth, it was loading fine, and when it was finished I got a popup saying it was some "none critical malfunction between the game and awesomemod" (it was in Swedish as I'm Swedish so it's not directly translated).

Oh great, I better close the game I thought.
Browse the internet to see if there was some AM version that worked.
Sure enough I found a test version, and believe me I tested it- that was my biggest mistake, since then it crashes every time.

My solution was (I thought) to delete the hell outta the files, and so I did- still, the game wasn't working.

My second try was to apply the ultimate fix, as I've did it several times before I knew I nailed it.
But alas, no luck.

The crash starts exactly when the game is starting to load, 5-10 seconds after the opening sequence/trailer.
I get the error message "The Sims 3 has stopped working...".

I don't know how to solve this, people.

The only thing I know that I did was that I updated to the 1.38-version, because when I first iniciated installing Supernatural a popup said that I had to update the game to be able to install Supernatural.

I guess this is what screwes everything up.

But I have tried to fix it by doing the above things- awesomemod is all gone, I have made a re-run of the ultimate fix, and that's it.

I'm out of options here.
I've managed to successfully install all other EP's, sometimes with some small issues but I've always figured it out, but now I'm all lost.

I really hope that you can guide me into successfully install this game!
And I'm hoping that this can be fixed without re-installing the complete game or blank out all my saves, mods, packages and whatnot.
But I'm willing to do what's necessary..

Thanks in advance, and please excuse curses and spelling errors, as I said I've been struggling with this all night :/

Dear Admin,

Thank you for your reply!

I have followed every step but my game still crashes..
I really don't get it, I did everything in the right order in your first link, then I read the step 6 in the 2nd, installed the program and tried it, still no luck.

Hello,

Did you clear your caches after removing the mod?

Hello,

Thank you both for the reply!

I have now solved the issue-
It seems like I had forgotten to remove a AM-related package file, and can now load the game just fine.
I haven't played anything yet so I know if there are any in-game issues, but as I've done everything you have tipped me about I'm sure it'll be a smooth game time Smile

If not I will return, thanks again!
