Sims 3 crash after playing for a while PLEASE HELP :(

Post by mgpernia on Tue 25 Sep 2012, 00:04

Hello,

Really hoping you guys can help me with this problem:

I finally got the sims installed along with supernatural, showtime and then sims 3store content. The game works fine for a couple of hours but then out of nowhere it crashes. NOW it used to work like that before I installed the store content, when i intalled the store content it opened for literally 6 or 7 minutes and it crashed, I'm on a laptop so I beagan to think it was overheating but I'm not sure, it may also be the graphics but I have no idea since I'm terrible when it comes to computers Sad

Hope you guys can help me out! Very Happy

thanks.

Hello,

Ok since it crashes after a few hours I'm not really surprised. The Sims 3 can be funny like that, starts using too much memory and crashes. It can be helpful to save and quit after an hour or 2 and restart the game.
But now it has started to happen sooner since you installed the store content, did you install anything else during that time, any 3rd party content or mods?
If you didn't, look here.
