Problems after updating (Sims 3)

Post by sufferagette on Wed 07 Nov 2012, 17:34

Hi favourite support people Smile

I updated the other day and since doing so my game is ridiculously buggy and glitchy and crashes all the time... like every 15 minutes or so. I followed the instructions supplied for a mac update (only using the #crack folder).

Typically I use all the folders (I have all the expansions) but the instructions say otherwise so I didn't.

Do you know of a solution? Should I try all the folders? I'm gonna wait to hear from you before going ahead with anything.

Thank you kindly!

Hello,

The problem is that after updating to 1.42 your game is buggy?
If yes, the Fix isn't going to fix that; it's caused by something else.

Do you have any Mods or Custom Content?

Yeah... I updated it and now it's super unstable.

No CC that didn't come from here. No Mods other than the nobuildsparkles and nointro.

Edit: I should probably add that the game crashing isn't foreign to me.. Just not this much. I can't even create a family without it glitching and crashing. And I just noticed icons are blacking out (when he goes to read a cooking skill book, for instance). I read the solutions for game crashes but the RAM adjuster isn't available for mac download (and it seems like it's probably the source of the problem since I'm running a brand new iMac).

//EDIT

I thought it was working smoothly but I still can't make a family with
more than one sim in it without the game crashing still in CAS.

Hello,

On a PC I'd say, backup and remove this folder: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3
Can you find this folder on a Mac?

Yeah I found it and removed it after backing up.

Having Same Issue

Post by imanimoseley on Fri 09 Nov 2012, 06:48



Today has been a long day!

I installed, uninstalled and then re-installed all the EPs and SPs. Applied the fix, updated the game and I'm still crashing to the desktop. I can't seem to make a sim in CAS without crashing. I'm certain I applied all the files in the right folders, etc. There has to be some other issue. I previously had the base game, ambitions, world adventure and generations installed. They all ran fine before I updated to 1.4. Never crashed or glitched and had a ton of mods and cc.

I deleted the folder: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3

Still crashing soon as I make a selection in CAS. Any suggestions?

BTW... I appreciate all the files and support. Anxious to start playing! I love you

Lastly... I'm using a PC not a Mac... just noticed I posted in the wrong section.

So... what do I do after backing up/deleting? And what happens if the game doesn't create a new folder and stops recognizing your saved games?

Sh*t just got real weird over here. I blame Mercury in Retrograde.

Your saved games are in the folder you did backup, it didn't create a new folder when you tried to play again.

All you need to do to play the saved games is moving the Saved Folder from The Sims 3 folder, back to the Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 folder.

Sorry but you must not have understood what I meant. Once I deleted the Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 folder, a new one was never created (which was why I did it in the first place).

I can't plug my saved games back in because there's no where to put them. Does that make more sense?

Before I deleted the folder, the game stopped recognizing my settings, my custom content, my saved games... clearly something went wrong.

Does anyone know how to solve this or what's causing it?

I reinstalled everything and the whole thing happened again.

So I am led to believe it is user file related because deleting my user files seemed to help for a bit but it happened again. This time while running the game without custom content at all (not even the mods folder)...

I'm getting really frustrated/desperate. If anyone has seen this before, please let me know. I've been referring to the modthesims help files but their fixes were only temporary.
