My sim doesn’t appear in the Sims 3 Supernatural.[SOLVED]

Post by SuzSuzSuz on Fri 05 Oct 2012, 22:10

Hello,

First of all, thank you for all the Sims games Smile.

I’ve installed all the Sims 3 games that is proposed to download. I’ve done everything in order, I’ve even used the manual patch + the ultimate fix and I didn’t miss any steps.

But the problem is that when I want to create a sim, there is no sim that appears. Same thing when I choose a family that has already been created, they don’t appear in the game. The only thing that I can see is the green sim logo --> .

I don’t now if that would have helped, but I removed the cc files but not the mods cause I haven’t got a Mods file.

I hope that my problem could be fixed.

Thank you

Mod Edit: Changed text colour, sorry but it was nearly impossible to read lol.

Hello,

Well I would've asked if you had mods but since you don't have any, it'll be something else.
I would suggest to redo the patch and the fix, see if that does anything.

Ok, so I'm using windows 7 home premium 64 bits (I think it's that cause my computer is in French and it's called windows 7 édition familiale premium 64 bits).

RAM : 6 Go

Graphics : ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650

Processor : AMD Phenom(tm) II P920 Quad-Core Processor, 1600 MHz

You're talking about the sims 3 right ? I've installed all the games from sims 3 basic game to supernatural and I've followed the instructions on how to install it correctly.

I don't think it's my computer that has a problem cause I've already played the sims 3 on it and it worked perfectly. But I'm not an expert so there Very Happy .

Thank you all for your help I love you

Hello,

Try this:
Go to Documents\Electronic Arts and backup the folder "The Sims 3". Just copy it to your desktop. Now delete it from Documents\Electronic Arts and start your game. Your saves are in the folder you backed up, so just start a new save for testing purposes and see if your sim appears.

Hello,



No, nothing happens. I did try that already but still no success Sad.



Do you think that maybe I have to reinstall all the sims again ?



There's something else that I forgot to mention. When I select which town I want to play with, the words are blank. Like this :



And there's an other photo of when I want to creat a sim. I can't even choose if I want it to be human or not :

Hello,

That's a known bug and could be responsible for the missing sim as well. I hope you don't mind using a different game language, because changing the laguage to English has been known to fix this and it's done like this.

Hello,

Did the language actually change to English in-game? Or still in French?

Hello,

And if you start a new town, is it the same?
If it is, try this: Back up the The Sims 3 folder in Documents\Electronic Arts, and delete it from that folder, now start the game to see if that makes any difference.

Still nothing.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong. Which one do I have to start in the bin folder : TS3 or TS3W ? When I try both, it's all the same.
And in which folder do I have to start it, in The Sims 3 or The Sims 3 supernatural ? Again, when I do both, it's the same thing.

Hello,

Start the TS3W.exe, if you wish to play without the launcher.
Start from Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

Hello,

Are you sure you completely backed up and removed this folder: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 ?

Hello,


I think so yes. I've went to Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3. Copied that folder on the Desktop, deleted the one in the Documents folder then I started playing by clicking on the TS3W that is in Program files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3.

Is that correct ?

//EDIT

I'm showing you what's in my Bin folder just in case...

It's recommended to Edit post rather then double post.


Yeah, click on the TS3W.exe in there, should load the game bypassing the launcher.

Yes ! Finally it works + I can play it in French cheers. After reinstalling all the games, I didn't apply any crack but only the one in the ultimate fixe and that did the trick. Before I applied all the other cracks + the ultimate one and that messed it up I suppose.

Anyway, thank you all for your time and help, I appreciated it. I love you
