The Sims 3 Crashes :(

Post by megalolzxx on Fri 26 Oct 2012, 03:19

First of all, I want to say, thank you for putting up a The Sims 3 download Very Happy very much appreciated.

I did encounter a problem when I was starting to play it though.

The first time I opened it, I was on the process of creating a new household. But I never get the chance to finish because it ends up crashing and saying something like "Windows has encountered a problem" or "The Sims 3 stopped working." I try to open it up again and again and again but it keeps crashing.

I do have custom content installed but I'm sure it has nothing to do with the game, since I didn't have custom content installed the first time I ran it. I also did all the DEP stuff mentioned in the fix for PC problems but I have to mention that one of the .exe files from the sims 3 base game bin wasn't allowed to be there or something like that. I don't know what's wrong with it.

By the way, I actually downloaded and installed the sims on my old computer once - and I didn't have the need to use the DAEMON program for it, I don't know why and how I did it but I once installed it successfully with no problems whatsoever. Maybe it's because the process is different now? XD I actually don't know XD

Oh and I only have 3 other games: Pets, Generations and Showtime.

Thank you in advance! Smile

I would suggest a re-install, if you had issues with very little playing time. Well I should say a re-extract only using WinRAR, and then re-install.

Also, computer specs? OS, 32/64 bit, ram, graphics card.

Hello,

Is your game version currently 1.39? If you're not sure, please open your game launcher and hover your mouse over the base game icon, in the lower-left corner of the launcher.

Also try backing up and removing this folder: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\

Hey again xD

I already read the thread with the desktop fixes (and I already added the .exe files to the DEP) but it still crashed Sad should I add the .exe files in the fix too?

I have a PC, and it's an HP. It's 64 bit. 4GB ram and I'm not sure what a graphics card is at all XD sorry.

It is version 1.39 Smile I'll remove the sims 3 folder and let you know what happens.

Thanks ! Smile

EDIT: I removed it but it still froze Sad

I always use game booster for my games, so I definitely use that for the sims. But it still freezes :/
