I broke my sims an need help

Post by xog420 on Sat 29 Sep 2012, 01:16

hi all i broke my sims all was working great then i added 2009,2010,2011,2012 store files and i mean all them well it took like 15 min to load a game after that but i was ok with it

so i added skin mods an bunch of premade sims from the sims exchange.. then it took like 1 hour to load into the game u know where u pick a family of ur saves then another 20min to load that

well i think is way way to long so i just deleted my hole sims folder from

C:\Users\freeuser\Documents\Electronic Arts

but i still have this crazy load time

i also looked here C:\Users\freeuser\AppData\Local\VirtualStore

but it was empty so i just uninstalled the game with ccleaner then ran the reg cleanup an reinstall the game but still it takes an hour or so to load the game what did i do

do i realy have to format an reload windows?

No, formatting your harddrive is way over the top.

I'm not sure where the sims exchange stuff goes to, but yeah moving/removing Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3, should have removed them.

Just to cover another base, even tho I highly doubt it's a problem, freeuser is the account you use to play The Sims 3?

Hello,

Keep in mind that each EP or SP added will increase loading times, so don't be surprised if it's going to take a little longer after reinstalling your packs.

Hello,

Please backup and remove this folder: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3

Then test the game and let us know the result.
If that didn't work, try step 6 here, please: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t4692-game-lag-possible-fixes

Hello,

You can use Merlin to view sims3packs. You'll have to download them first though.

Hello,

It's a rather old program indeed so it may not work properly to install content. It's probably based on the old monkey helper method. It's great for viewing sims3packs and packages alike though, so I'd just use it for that and install the ones you want with the launcher or one of the other methods.
