NOOOOOOOOOOO! My save files corrupted! T_T (A serious error).[CLOSED]

Post by 1stsim144 on Mon 22 Oct 2012, 12:53

3 days ago I went on Sims to play and I receive freaking:-

A serious error has occurred while loading 'currentgame.sims3'. It is recommended that you restart the application

Googled for 2 days, testing each suggestion.
aka, deleting the Currentgame.sims3 folder while the games running..
Restoring backup save files by using meta data trick/changing save folder's name..

NOTHING WORKS. Crying or Very sad

3rd day now. Clueless..

Am I really have nothing else can do beside start a whole new game?

UPDATE: Went for a casual play on a new GAME in sims and it crashed within 10minutes. WHAT THE HELL!?

Hello there,

Oh well, do you start your game in Windows 95 compatibility mode?

Hello,

It could indeed be that your save is corrupted, but lets find out if it is.
Please go to Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Saves and look for yoursavegame.sims3, does it have a .bad extension? If it does, your save game is indeed corrupt.
All is not lost, you can still try the backup save. Remove the original one with the .bad extension, just drag it to your desktop for now. Don't delete it yet, if the following doesn't work, there's more we can try. Look for yoursavegame.sims3.backup and remove .backup from the folder's name. Now start the game and see if you can load your town. You may have lost a little progress, but it's usually not much.

There's no .bad extensions in my save folder. (I wish it would be that easy)

What confuses me is that it says 'currentgames.sims3' fail when I try to load my save files.
Which is the one that giving me the problem? Is it the currentgames folder or my save files?

Hello,

Try this: Backup and remove the The Sims 3 folder from Documents\Electronic arts, then start the launcher to generate a new folder.
Go to the old folder to copy your Saves to the new folder. Don't copy anything else yet, now start the game and try to load your save game. If that works, you can copy the Downloads and Mods folder (if you have any) and reinstall your sims3packs with the launcher.

Nope. It didn't work. Instead of giving me the currentgames.sims3 it's now state the name of my save.

I give up. Imma restart from the scratch. Thanks for the help though guy. Time to build a new family.

Consider this thread [close without solution because sims and laptop being an ass and decides to torture me] idk. Blah.
