Sims 3 launcher won't open and game won't start?

Post by rarghgaafar on Wed 10 Oct 2012, 12:51

I had all the Sims 3 base game and all the expansions etc downloaded. I updated the game via the launcher and after that it wouldn't play, it would go to the main menu and then crash. So I uninstalled everything and deleted all the files, then installed the base game again, but it still wouldn't work, it would just crash at the main menu. So I uninstalled that and installed the base game via the CD I've got of it, but now everytime I open the launcher a message pops up saying 'Sims3 Launcher stopped working', and when I open it via the direct file (TS3) it just shows the initial EA logo and then crashes. Help!

Yep - when I tried to open the direct file it said it didn't match with my copy of the game (or something along those lines) so I had to update the game via the launcher, but the launcher still won't open!

I have the same problem! I've been playing the game for a few years now and all of a sudden it started showing a message of a broken file, whhen i tried to update the ladt patch. and when i uninstalled and reinstalled the game the launcher crushes and the direct file won't work; as soon as it goes to full black screen it crushes and says the sims 3 stopped working... What could be wrong? I was playing only a couple of days ago with no problems at all. Can anyone help please?
