Can't read newspaper, or use the computer or phone... [SOLVED]

Post by Wickedwizze on Tue 30 Oct 2012, 19:46

Hi

I have several in game problems. I have this problems a quite some time so sorry if that's a little bit late...
I can't tell after what game this started. I've downloaded everything from your site and I followed all the steps needed.
These are my problems that I've noticed. I can't read the paper or clean it up (I have my dog to destroy them so I can clean it), I can't use the phone or use the computer. Only if my sim wants to play video games (free will). I don't know if this would be working in this game but can"t you normally click on your own sim for some actions to appear? Nothing happens when I click on my sim.

I hope you can help me. Thanks!

With kind regards
Wickedwizze What a Face

//EDIT

Me again

I'm having also probs in 'create a sim' mode. I can't
give a name to my sim, I can't ajust the body, skintone,... (everything
you can change at the first tab of making a sim).
And there must be a button to create a supernaturel sim? I don't have that button.

Greats confused

Hello,

Do you have any Mods or Custom Content?

I do have some cc. Should I delete them?

Try backing up and removing the "Documents/Electronic Arts/Sims 3" folder. This clears the caches, and removes your mods. Test the game with a clean slate to see if it starts working, and afterwards you can put your saves back in.

Hi

When the folder Sims 3 is out of the documents folder, my game runs just fine. But when I put it back in place the probs come back.

Hello,

Do you have a "Mods" folder in: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 , when you put it back?

I put the whole back up back in place. That was not what you ment I suppose. In my back up I've got a Mods folder with a lot of cc in it. What should I do?

Hello,

Please back it up and then remove it.
It's most likely some conflicting or out-dated Mods causing this problem.

Hi

I followed the steps as you asked.
So I back up the sims 3 folder in My Documents. Then I deleted the original Sims 3 folder in My documents. I started the game.
When I check there is no Mod folder in 'My documents: the sims 3'
I' ve put everything back in place and I have the same problems.
So I think there must be some cc that conflict this problems?

Sorry if I have it wrong. My Englisch is not always that good

It's alright, we're here to help.

All you're going to replace is your saves right now, so you'll make the backup (if you deleted the other one), delete the original, run the game so another folder is made, then put the "saves" folder from your backup into the newly created folder. Smile

Is that a little bit more clear, or do you need any other clarification on this bit?
