Need Help with Blank screens and tabs and crashing

Post by charlie2k4 on Wed 07 Nov 2012, 20:47

I just installed all expansions and stuff packs. I also updated to latest version and placed crack files.
When the game loads when i first run it the loading screen shows a blank gray box..and then when the game loads up a lot of tabs are blank with nothing in them (tabs that you click on).
Also, the game crashes shortly after i try to do something.

I have also deleted the folder containing any saves...the Sims 3 folder in the My Documents folder.

Any advice?

Also, I do not have any mods installed..just all the game and all expansions and stuff packs

How did you update to the latest version? Maybe try the manual patch, since it does seem to fix some weird issues.

Yeah, just to have it replace it, since some of the other files The Sims 3 uses might not have been correctly updated, so the manual patch will make them right.
