Sims have no thumbnail, froze in place. [SOLVED]

Post by JaneGreenEyes on Sat 15 Sep 2012, 04:46

Hi. I just downloaded Supernatural the other night from G4TW's PirateBay account. I went in to Moonlight Falls & created a fairy, played her just fine. Then I wanted to back to my older families, and now everytime I open those old games, My sims are just frozen in place, and their thumbnails to the left of the screen are missing. I can't do anything. I tried moving them out, then back in, but that didn't work. On one of my games I saved after this problem showed up, and now that whole world is empty of any residents, including my sims! And my whole family is just GONE. I have searched every forum I can on why this could be happening & I have had no luck in a solution. I do have mods/cc, but I know how to manage them properly. I always delete my cache files prior to starting the game. I am running on a Win. 7 op system, with a quad-core processor. My graphics card is a Sapphire 7770. I have 16gb of ram, and a 2 tb harddrive. My game has been running perfect up until I installed Supernatural. >Sad. Any solution or explanation to this would be so helpful! Thanks.

So you moved the mods/cc from the Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 just to confirm you don't have accidentally hidden one?

>>Err, wait that wouldn't make sense, can you play your fairy still or is she now frozen?




...smart remark... quad-core or duo-core with hyper-threading? Razz Or do you have a quad-core hyper-threading processor.

I would backup and remove the mods folder then test the game like that, just to be on the safe side on making sure your mods aren't causing this issue.

Your welcomed, and if you have any other problems just ask.

I just re-read the thread name, and was a bit confused because I thought you said your Sims didn't have a thumbnail (fingernail).


Edit: added (fingernail)
