Hello,

It could be, but you'll have to find out if it is by temporarily removing the Mods folder from Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3.

Hello,

It's still crashing, when I try and make a new sim it shuts down.


I deleted all custom content and I was able to play them for about 10 minutes, and still I'm not able to make any sims, afterwards game crashed...

Hello,

What if you backup and remove this folder completely: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\ ?

Hi Admin Very Happy
I have this exact same issue and i did everything you said in that link. Now I have a few questions to ask-

1.When I remove that folder from the documents...my save games are gone as well,so do I have to make a new save game???

2.I have this thing called razor game booster..is this affecting it?

3.I have store content like the ice cream maker and deep fryer...does this count as CC,cuz this definitely aint mods?
Also When i interact with that ice cream maker that bubble thing on the top left just disappears!! any solutions??

Oh... And thanks darjonsa for putting this up u did me a huge favour

Hi guys

Did you also get a application error when your game crashed? I did.
It said: 'The memory could not be written'.
If it is the same as you, I can follow the steps of the admin Smile

Thx

Hello,


Nope, my game just went straight to the desktop and that was it.

But now I'm getting some weird error 12 and I'm not able to save my game. It's so annoying..

Yes it is

I started the game without the folder Mods and everything worked fine. I could create a new family.
But then I started the game with my Mod folder back in place. I could make a new family but when I was in buildmode, suddenly my graphics did weard. I've had all these black spots on the area where all the functions and buttons are. It is very annoying. The black spots dissapear when the game is in life mode... Sad And then my game crashed again... Sad
