Game Issue, Only with Seasons. [SOLVED]

Post by krystalux on Wed 14 Nov 2012, 22:40

I seem to be having an issue with my game but ONLY with the Seasons expansion and I'm not sure why. Sad Before, I had downloaded Seasons from the Origin account from a close friend and it installed correctly and everything was fine. However, once I started the game it loaded perfectly okay until it finally reached the Live Mode screen. Then everything was frozen. My sim is immovable, I cannot click anything, I cannot move the screen, time has stopped, but I am still able to hear noises and trees moving as well as their shadows. I can't "wait out" the freeze because it loads up like this and ultimately I cannot do anything besides Task Manager quit the game.

I've tried these solutions:
- Removing all my mods/CC
- Starting the game with no CC via launcher
- Ran Delphy's CC Dashboard to check for error CC files

None of these worked. Here's the thing though, I uninstalled Seasons and played the game and everything went back to normal and working as it was. Is it possible that Seasons doesn't work with my previous expansions? Or other files that are already in my game? I uninstalled Seasons and waited for your version of the game to be released, I thought maybe it had to do with my other games being torrented. I downloaded G4TW's torrent and the installation went fine as the first time. I started up the game, it loaded correctly again until the Live Mode screen and my problem persists.

I am at a loss and I just want to avoid uninstalling everything just for one expansion to work but this is getting ridiculous and frustrating. I really hope you guys can help me. WhatDidUJustCallMe?

I don't understand, I have a pretty good graphics card so I don't see how one expansion could cause it to suddenly stop working.

I've even "factory reset" my game and it worked for 5 seconds then it froze.

//EDIT

Hi guys, I know I haven't received much help with this. I'm going to
quote another kind person who reached out to me with what they said:
I had exactly the same problem. I installed seasons, loaded up the
game and the sims and time were frozen. I did all the things you did to
try and solve it, even uninstalled. When I uninstalled, game worked
fine. Reinstalling, it went back to being frozen.

I contacted EA customer service and talked to an amazing tech guy who
actually plays the game. He said the culprit is one of two things.
First, make sure you video card driver is up to date. (Mine was, so that
solution did not work for me) The second thing he said was that 1.42
patch is current, but not the most current patch.

So he directed me to the super-patch. He said the super-patch, while
it is also 1.42, is more current than the 1.42 that is downloaded and
installed through the launcher.

Halfway through the first post there is a link: http://akamai.cdn.ea.com/eadownloads/u/f/sims/sims…TS3_1.42.130.0190xx_update.exe

This link is for the super-patch.
It took me a couple of hours to download it, but it worked like a
charm, and my game is now working. Give that a try, it worked for me and
hopefully it will work for you.

They really helped me out and this Super Patch worked. My game is running beautifully as it once did. So this issue is solved.

So you're saying this link here for the super patch
Code:
http://akamai.cdn.ea.com/eadownloads/u/f/sims/sims3/patches/TS3_1.42.130.0190xx_update.exe
worked perfectly for you? I'm downloading the super patch now, but I'm kinda weary of applying it. I'm getting a lot of game lag and everything else mentioned in this post, so I'm wondering if this super patch will work??

The Manual patch and the super patch are the same thing, just we called it something different then what EA calls it.

Yeah, the Manual/Super Patch does fix some weird glitches and stuff, and can even be re-applied if your at the same patch level.
